Lifespan TR3000i Treadmill Review - $1,299.00

  • Rating

  • How Long Will The Lifespan TR3000i Last?

    As we have discussed, the LifeSpan name carries a little more weight than some of the more common brands. Typically, when products are not produced on mass scales, better attention to detail can be achieved. This may spill over into the durability of this treadmill. Still, the build and quality of the TR3000i are likely to stand up to moderate jogging and maybe light running. A word to the wise, setting a cleaning routine and being sure to take care of your treadmill will always promote better life out of your investment.
  • Brief Overview

    Our Second Place 2019 Best Buy winner for the $1,000 to $1,299-dollar category has proved to be a respectable machine with a sturdy build and reasonable warranty. LifeSpan's TR3000i may be lacking in a few features but overall, this is a decent treadmill for the price and would suit a light to moderate exerciser just fine.
  • Overall Quality

    A few good qualities of the TR3000i include a sturdy build and a somewhat standard warranty. This machine is backed by a five-year parts and one-year labor warranty; while this is not the most extensive warranty among our 2019 Best Buys, it is a good warranty for this price range. One thing to keep in mind is the kind of warranty that is included with different brands. You can order a pizza from Dominos or a bistro in the Italian village of Chicago. They may both be pepperoni, but one is going to be made up of better ingredients and with more care. Likewise, the LifeSpan name carries a little more weight than some. LifeSpan is a smaller company and does not produce their treadmills on a mass scale like some of the other brands. With this, the customer service and technicians are smaller scale and have been known to provide quality service. Thus, this warranty may not have as many years tacked on as others, but it is backed by a quality service department. LifeSpan has also stuck with their signature sleekness in regards to the aesthetics of this treadmill. They typically produce light, sturdy machines that do not include unneeded parts. If you like a slim design, then this treadmill will fit that bill. The qualities that we are not too thrilled with start with the lack of workout programs. The TR3000i has nearly half the amount of other treadmills in this price range. Secondly, the walking area is a total of six inches smaller than the others. Interestingly enough, the 20 x 56-inch belt is actually smaller than some of the treadmills under $1,000. While this is consistent with LifeSpan's tendency to produce sleeker machines, you may not appreciate the lack of wiggle room. Thus, it may be a good idea to test out a few machines before purchasing to be sure that you are comfortable with the narrower walking area.

  • History

    Throughout the years, we have noted that we have not liked the price jumps that LifeSpan has added to the TR3000i. We have noticed the warranty that has come with this treadmill but have not ranked it as the best warranty. We have liked the attractive design and fit-and-finish quality but have noticed that other brands are equipping their treadmills with more features for the same price.
  • Conclusion

    The Second Place 2019 Best Buy winner in the $1,000 to $1,299 dollar category is equipped with a sturdy build and appealing design. While the TR3000i’s warranty is not the best in this price range, it is important to keep in mind the culture of service that is behind the warranty. We would recommend this treadmill for a moderate jogger and the once in a while runner.
