This compact trainer doesn’t expect you to compromise, and it easily earns high customer reviews.
Just like respectable non-folding treadmills it has a high weight capacity, a motor with lifetime warranty, great shock absorption and preset workouts. Enhancements include speakers, syncing with mobile fitness apps, and a power incline. Parts are protected for five years.

Rating: 78/100. A good value among folding treadmills, the TR2000e Electric Folding Treadmill has a surprisingly low $1499 sale price. This foldable treadmill with track incline and tablet holder is part of an all-around impressive series from Lifespan. The Lifespan treadmill series runs through the 8000 level — the nonfolding TR8000i is for medical use — and the foldable home models are the 1200i, 2000e, 3000e and 4000e. All Lifespan treadmills are made from robotically welded steel and have thick durable tracks.
Compared with the entry level $999 treadmill, the $1697 TR2000e is an upgrade with wireless data sharing and more shock absorption. Also, the Lifespan TR2000e uses electricity instead of hydraulics to fold the frame for storage; just push a button and eFold™ will do the work! Other key points are a 56” track, a workout menu with 21 programs, and a USB port for use with Lifespan Club. The TR2000e normally costs $1697 but is sale priced at $1499 with shipping included.
Will it fit your workout area? When unfolded the TR2000e has a 71” x 33” footprint and is 56” tall. When folded its dimensions are 50” L x 33” W x 56” H.

The Lifespan TR2000e is a top value among folding treadmills. It offers a friendly combination of price and buyer protection: This treadmill is sale priced at just $1099 with a five-year parts warranty! Highlights are its power incline, 21 preset programs and wireless/USB data sharing.
Although it can fold, this treadmill isn’t flimsy. The frame is welded steel and has a 300-pound user weight capacity. The 56” track is ideal for walking and jogging, plus it fits the running strides of shorter and average-height adults. Here are details about the preset workout programs, other features and the TR2000e warranty.
Whatever your skill level, the TR2000e is ready to guide. It arrives with 17 preset workouts for weight management, sports training and general healthy living. Each program lets you choose from three intensity levels. Also included are two heart rate programs and room to save two customized programs. Your treadmill workouts can have up to 15% incline and let you sprint at up to 11 mph.
With a LifeSpan Fitness Club membership you can add new workout programs. These files can be uploaded from a USB port or sent wirelessly to the treadmill console.
LifeSpan Fitness TR2000e Features
As its name suggests the Lifespan TR2000e Electric Folding Treadmill can be folded electronically. (This is in contrast to the cheaper TR1200i, which uses hydraulics for folding.) Just depress a button for three seconds and the deck will fold vertically to save floor space.
A favorite feature is the power incline. This not only adds variety, but also speeds up your calorie burn and helps tone your legs and glutes. The maximum tilt is 15%.
The display for the TR2000e is a 6” LCD with blue backlighting. It shows Time, Calories, Distance, Steps, Heart Rate, Speed and Incline. This is one of few treadmills that has a clock and a pedometer.
For pulse monitoring this treadmill has touch sensors and is compatible with wireless chest straps.
An optional Bluetooth receiver supports Active Trac™ and Train & Trac™ apps to help maximize your treadmill workouts and automatically capture your results. You can also wirelessly synchronize the treadmill’s computer with your LifeSpan Club account or transfer data with a USB stick.
A holder is provided for your tablet computer or smartphone. A 7” tablet fits nicely. A 10” tablet can be supported too, but the treadmill’s data screen will be partly obscured.
The treadmill’s audio center includes speakers and a headphone jack for listening to MP3s.
In case you step off the treadmill during the workout, it will automatically pause. This is a good safety feature for protecting the user as well as pets or small children who might approach the machine.

The Lifespan TR2000e Electric Folding Treadmill is a top value at its $1099 sale price, and even at full price it’s a great buy.

With music speakers, a tablet holder and wireless syncing, this cardio trainer makes it easy to follow your fitness plan.
FitRated recommends the TR2000e for the typical treadmill walker or runner, excluding tall and heavy trainees. See higher model numbers if you need a treadmill with greater weight capacity and/or a longer track.
