Livestrong 15.0T Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The new model in the updated Livestrong lineup. Good looking machine with high quality internal parts.
If you are a runner, this is one to seriously consider if you also need something affordable.
The Livestrong 15.0T is a decent value at $1,499. It's a good model for serious runners. If you need to save some money or just run casually, the 13.0T might be a better choice. The 15.0T is a better quality treadmill, but it's not so much better that it deserves an extra $200.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which has become the standard size for walking belts on today's treadmills. This should provide ample room for larger individuals to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A very nice motor powers this machine. Very few models sold under $2,000 have more power producing capabilities than this one. 12 mph is the maximum speed attainable. This should be fast to enough to challenge even serious runners.
The cushioning system on this treadmill is one of the best you'll find at this price range. MaxComfort cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. You'll have trouble find a running surface that is more forgiving and durable than the one this models offers without paying at least $500 more.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this model is pretty price appropriate. You can find cheaper treadmills that we expect to last longer, but you'll just as easily find more expensive models that we don't expect to last as long. The quality of parts is good, which is to be expected at this price.
The warranty on the Livestrong 15.0T is nice. In-home labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 5 years, and the frame and motor are covered for life. This is the type of coverage you expect to see when the manufacturer has faith in their product. Very few models sold under $4,000 will have better warranties.
