Our Rating

Rating: 92.3/100. The Landice L7 is a luxury treadmill made in the USA for home use. The L7 is priced about $4,000 to $5,000 depending on options, so it’s more expensive than the typical treadmill… but the investment pays off in the long run.  Landice treadmill parts and electronics are under warranty for a lifetime instead of the usual one to six years.

The L7 is the smaller of two models in Landice’s Precision Series, which also features the L8. The Landice L7 has a 58” x 20” workout surface, and the L8 has a supersized 63” x 22” workout surface. Each cardio trainer is top-rated and a pleasure to own, being quiet and essentially maintenance-free.

Introduction

The Landice L7 treadmill is built to a last a lifetime. It’s made in the USA from club-quality components, all under lifetime warranty. Most Landice electronics carry lifetime warranties too. Below are details about the four Landice treadmill control panels, other features of the L7, and the industry-leading free warranty.

Workout Programs & Landice Control Panels

The L7 and other Landice fitness machines are sold with a choice of control panels. Each Landice control panel has a different number of preset workouts. Also, each can save a different number of user profiles. Additionally the top-tier control panel (the Executive) can connect the RunSocial app for simulated outdoor training.

Executive Control Panel

A luxury control panel, the Landice Executive has a full-color 9” display with high resolution for graphics. It lets you swipe between five different motivational screens, which have scenic views and also show workout feedback, and a screen just with exercise data (11 fields).

Preset workout category names and programs include:

  • Goal: Distance, Time, Calories
  • Heart Rate Control: Two preset programs + five custom settings per user
  • Race Mode:  ½ Mile, 1 Mile, 2 Mile, 5K and 10K
  • Landmark Climbing: Statue of Liberty, Washington Monument, Seattle Space Needle, Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building and Freedom Tower
  • Fitness Test: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Firefighter and Balke
  • Built-In: Fat Burn, Endurance, Interval, Intermediate, Advanced

Additionally five users can save profiles and five customized routines each. The Executive control panel saves data for eight weeks, and it also has Bluetooth for exporting data to a mobile app such as RunKeeper. Bluetooth also adds the option of exercising with RunSocial mixed reality workout programs.

Cardio Control Panel

The Landice Cardio control panel shows workout info in three LCD windows with blue backlighting. It lets two users each save a client profile and five custom workout programs. Preset program choices include:

  • Built-In: Fat Burn, Endurance, Interval, Intermediate, Advanced
  • Goal: Distance, Time, Calories
  • Heart Rate Control: Heart Rate Control, Interval Heart Rate Control + two custom settings per user

Additionally the Landice Cardio control panel can deliver three fitness tests.

Pro Sports Control Panel

The Landice Pro Sports control panel looks the same as the Cardio control panel above, with three backlit LCD windows, but has fewer programs and supports just one user profile.

The user can save five custom workout programs, plus the menu has five presets. Each preset workout adjusts the treadmill speed and incline. You can specify a duration and other limits for each program (parameters for speed and incline), and you can override the settings anytime.

Pro Trainer Control Panel

The simplest Landice L7 control panel, the Pro Trainer arrives with five preset programs. For each you can specify a duration plus your maximum allowable speed and incline. The Pro Trainer also lets one user profile save two routines.

Like the Pro Sports and Cardio panels, this control panel shows workout data in three backlit LCD windows.

Landice L7 Features

The L7 treadmill frame is non-folding. It’s made of aircraft-grade bulletproof aluminum, and it’s powder-coated to resist moisture and look factory-fresh for decades. Measurements are 76.5” L x 35” W x 60” H.

Landice treadmill decks are reversible for twice the longevity of non-reversible decks. With the L7 shoppers have a choice of two high-end suspension systems, with one qualifying as orthopedic.

The L7 treadbelt is four-ply, which helps make this fitness machine virtually maintenance-free. For comparison almost every other home treadmill in FitRated reviews has a one-ply or two-ply belt.

A 4.0 CHP motor (8.0 HP peak) powers the belt. Integrated Footplant Technology™ recalibrates the belt with every step you take for very smooth motion.

Electronics include a choice of four control panels as described above. You can also add a Landice treadmill TV, a mounting bracket for your own TV or computer, or a tablet holder.

For heart rate monitoring the Landice L7 has grip sensors and is packaged with a wireless chest strap.

Incline training is supported with a 15 percent grade motorized ramp. The commercial-grade ramp motor can give 1,000 pounds of thrust.

For safety you can set up a passcode to activate the machine. Also, a magnetic key must always be in place for the treadmill to operate. The safety key can also auto-stop the machine.

Warranty & Guarantee

The Landice L7 treadmill warranty includes:

– Frame: Lifetime

– Parts & Wear Items: Lifetime

– Control Panel: Lifetime for each except the Executive, which is under warranty for five years

– Labor: One year

Conclusion

The Landice L7 is a top FitRated recommendation for high-end home gym equipment. While it’s priced above average for home treadmills, it pays off as a rewarding long-term investment in health. The L7 is among the minority of home treadmills that’s club-quality and virtually maintenance-free. Some shoppers would be better accommodated by the larger L8, but for many elite home gyms the Landice L7 is the perfect fit.
