LiveStrong LS13.0T Review


Intro

LiveStrong LS13.0T

If you are familiar with the LiveStrong LS10.0T, you will see a resemblance between that treadmill and its  cousin — the LS13.0T.

The LiveStrong LS13.0T is the company’s “top-line” treadmill at the moment, incorporating the design of the LS10.0T, but with a bigger motor and deck.

Additionally, the LS13.0T also sports more workout programs and longer warranty on parts and labor.

Once the USB is connected to your computer, your workout information is updated to Daily Plate on LIVESTRONG.com. Here you can also download exclusive new, entirely free programmed workouts from Peter Park, personal strength and conditioning coach.

Aside from Livetrack, it’s always nice to have an iPod dock and built-in speakers, two luxury features you will find on the LiveStrong LS13.0T.

Lastly, the LS13.0T extra long, 60-inch belt is ideal for those that run at higher speeds and/or have longer strides.
