The LifeSpan LS-5T is an entry level folding treadmill for light use walkers.
Easy to assemble and use, the LS-5T does not take up much space and includes a few preset programs, quick speed controls, display of speed, time, distance and calories as well as heart rate monitoring.
If space is an issue, you will love how the LifeSpan LS-5T fits into nearly any area of your home with an easy to fold interface.
Additionally, the LS-5T also includes manually-adjusted incline and a 1.5 CHP motor, but a very poor warranty.

The LifeSpan LS-5T is an ultra-compact and affordable treadmill designed almost solely for walking.
If you need something that is quick and easy to use, the LifeSpan folds and unfolds in a matter of minutes.
Also, it takes up very little space when folded so it’s almost ideal for small apartments or homes with very little storage space.
The LifeSpan LS-5T features a 1.5 HP motor, 18″ x 50″ running surface, 0.6-8mph speed and 3 levels of manual incline.
The LS-5T features five speed control exercise programs (each with three levels).
The console not only tracks your speed, time, distance, calories, laps and heart rate but also supports several program types, including one manual program, two speed-based programs and two incline-based programs.
Additionally, simple to use pule grips allow users to put their hands on the handlebar sensors and the LS-5T will consequently read and display your heart rate.
The unit is very light (just over 100 lbs.) making it easy to move around the room as well as fold.
The treadmill offers very little in terms of electronics, but the LCD display screen highlights all the important information related to your fitness experience.
The speed (0.6 – 8 mph) and manual adjustment incline are designed exclusively for walkers.
The 16″ x 50″ walking surface is not enough for larger users, and make sure to note the 250 lbs. max user weight.
There is no iPod dock or compatibility to an advanced workout interface like iFit Live, which is becoming increasingly popular on treadmills.
