How long will the Lifespan TR3000i last?

The Lifespan TR3000i Treadmill is built from durable steel that can hold users up to 350 lbs. and weighs a solid 225 lbs. Made with non-slip plastic siderails, the TR3000i is backed by Lifespan’s lifetime frame and motor warranty, 5 years on parts, and 1 year on labor warranty with an optional to extend the shorter warranties through an outside party. It is built to last and moderate shorter users will get many years of jogging bliss from this machine.

Brief Overview

The Lifespan TR3000i Treadmill is built with space saving in mind, folds easily with the engagement of a latch, and lowers hands-free in a slow and steady manner. It is a credible upgrade from the TR2000i and worth investigating if $2000 is in your treadmill budget and you are interested in cardiovascular exercise while walking or jogging. While the TR3000i is a quality machine, in this price range other models offer similar if not better features and it is always good to figure out exactly what you want and need in a fitness machine before purchasing.

Overall Quality

The Lifespan TR3000i Treadmill overall is a quality-built workout machine, the running surface measuring 20” x 56” is still on the shorter side and taller users will not be able to lengthen their stride when exercising. The motor is a 2.75 HP CD that is still rated for moderate use despite the upgraded HP. There is a 15% incline which is optimal for conditioning lower body extremities and users will be thrilled that the 8 shock absorbers not only cushion impacts but reduces noise during exercise periods for those located in apartments or shared living spaces. The Lifespan TR3000i Treadmill comes with a 7” full color touchscreen that has 3 alternate dashboard looks to view performance data while still being easy to use with large quickset buttons on the console. It has a USB charging port and Bluetooth capabilities open a path to the Lifespan app and allows users to play their music through integrated speakers. The TR3000i comes with 38 programs offering numerous options on the path to fitness health. It is an all-around functional machine with just enough technology to add to workout intensity for a multitude of users.

The Lifespan TR3000i Treadmill is quality treadmill offering in the less than $2000 price range. It previously won a Best Buy accolade from us and offers quality features designed to appeal to a multitude of fitness fans. It is more than adequate at this price and has the backing of a reputable company along with a generous warranty that can be extended with an extra charge upon purchasing. We do caution purchasing parties to keep in mind there are many brands to choose from and quite a few models are less expensive and have better performing features at MSRP.
