LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 Review


Intro

LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 Treadmill

The LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 has decided to bypass the ability to fold your treadmill and make it compact with the alternative of purchasing a large, sturdy trainer with extra attention to creating a durable deck.

The 22″ x 60″ running surface is one of the largest on the market and it rides quietly on an extra thick 3.2mm multi-ply adjustable belt.

The LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 is powered by a 3.0 CHP motor and features LED and LCD display as well as EKG pulse grips heart rate monitoring.

Quick Summary
Rating: 85.9/100. Commercial-grade treadmill is bulky with dependability in mind. Extra wide (22″ x 60″) running surface is refreshing for taller and/or larger users that find smaller treadmills unable to support their body type. Treadmill offers cooling fan and quick controls, but little else in terms of additional features.

Pros:
– Spacious running surface (22″ x 60″)
– Quick controls for adjustment on the fly
– Durable, extra-thick 3.2mm adjustable belt
– LCD & LED display for exercise readouts
– EKG pulse grips heart rate monitor
– Built-in aluminum rails for extra support

Cons:
– Does not fold, not many additional features
– Extremely heavy, not portable (286 lbs.)
– No warranty coverage on deck

Introduction

The LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 is a commercial quality treadmill with extra attention paid to the frame and running deck.

If you are passionate about walking/jogging/running you will appreciate the extra detail that went into the LifeSpan Fitness Pro3.

Unfortunately, if you are into the latest electronics and technology, you will find that the Pro3 treadmill is great when it comes to exercise yet offers very little in terms of extras.

The LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 also does not fold, which if space is not an issue is actually to your advantage as the frame and deck are generally more durable that way.

Do not expect to transport the trainer because it is very heavy and not designed to be compact.

Workout Programs

The Pro3 offers 12 program segments that are effectively displayed on a combination of LED and LCD displays.

Users can quickly shift speed or incline as they work through grinding exercise programs that include two target heart rate programs, five speed programs, five incline programs, 5K/10K programs and two customizable programs.

Buyers will also love the body mass and body fat percentage analysis.

Treadmill Features

If you’re familiar with the general construction of treadmills then you will surely appreciate the time and detail that went into producing the LifeSpan Fitness Pro3.

The Pro3 is equipped with a powerful 3.0 horsepower DC motor, Dura-Max Drive System, steel frame, 3″ machine ground tapered rollers, 1″ reversible deck, aluminum rails, 3.2mm thick running belt and on-board cooling fan.

It might all sound like advanced industry jargon, but if you are unfamiliar with treadmills just know that the parts and technology that went into producing the Pro3 treadmill are top notch.

The treadmill will support just about any user with speeds that reach 12 mph and 15 levels of incline, both of which are easily adjustable via built-in quick controls.

Overall, the LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 is quiet during operation (even when reaching higher speeds) and the performance is very smooth.

Warranty & Guarantee

The LifeSpan Fitness Pro3 offers two different warranty packages:

Residential: Frame (Lifetime), Motor (Lifetime), Parts (5 Years) and Labor (1 Year)
Commercial: Frame (Lifetime), Motor (5 Years), Parts (2 Years) and Labor (1 Year)*

*three hours maximum daily usage.

Conclusion

If you’re not partial to state-of-the-art electronics like mp3 input and built-in televisions you’ll appreciate the durability of the LifeSpan Fitness Pro3.
