Made by reliable fitness equipment manufactuter Johnson Health Tech

New designs are bulky and filled with a lot of plastic. MSRP is generally doubled to allow retailers of this brand to discount 50-75% off to attract impulse buyers. Livestrong name has been tarnished by the recent Lance Armstrong doping accusations. If you want to help and donate to cancer research visit www.cancer.org and give them 100% of the proceeds.

Livestrong LS10.0T Treadmill – Overview

If you live in apartments / condos, and looking for a reliable treadmill machine, then we do recommend taking a look into the livestrong LS10.0T treadmill. It is truly amazing in terms of durability, stability and of course, price! It can be purchased in most fitness stores in Canada such as Canadian Tire, Treadmill Factory or through the Livestrong official website if you are too lazy to go out. So let’s get into this treadmill reviews here;

The Livestrong LS10.0T treadmill is a folding treadmill equipped with a powerful 2.75 CHP motor and a standard 20” x 55” treadbelt (running area). If you haven’t heard of Livestrong, they are part of Johnson Fitness, one of the biggest fitness manufacturer in the world and also the same manufacturer as AFG and Horizon. Since it is a folding treadmill, this is a perfect unit for small housing units because fold it up after usage.

Livestrong LS10.0T Treadmill Reviews
For those who didn’t get a chance to read some of our other treadmill reviews, most treadmill these days are equipped with 2.50 CHP – 3.25 CHP motor. The higher the CHP is, the less noise it makes (trust us, it makes a difference) and higher stability it offers. For example, someone who weights more than 240 lbs will probably need treadmill with 2.75 CHP+ motor because anything lower will do harm to the machine. The motor just wouldn’t be powerful enough to support such weight. So you get the idea. This also means that if you are over 240 lbs and hoping to do intensive treadmill workouts on it, you can stop reading this review now and go for a higher end treadmill such as the AFG 7.1 treadmill reviews or Livestrong LS13.0T treadmill reviews.

Livestrong LS10.0T Treadmill Reviews Console

Another amazing feature comes with the Livestrong LS10.0T treadmill is the LiveTrack fitness journal that keep a record of your workouts so that you can compare your workout progress overtime. This feature is exclusively for Livestrong machines only so you won’t be able to find it on any other brands (not even Horizon and AFG, even though it is made by same manufacturer). LiveTrack Interactive is such an amazing technology and innovative system where you can download training programs of Lance Armstrong from Livestrong.com for FREE (very impressive right?). This feature is extremely beneficial when it comes to tracking and reaching your fitness goals.

Another great feature worth mentioning is the console. It contains a built-in speaker where you can connect your iPod or MP3 player and listen to your favorite music during your treadmill workout. And of course, just like any other treadmill, the console shows display where you see the results, records etc. Nothing too special there – frankly.
Despite all the reputable brand name, amazing features and price, the warranty on this unit is pretty weak; offering only 3 years on parts and 1 year service on frame and motor. Most of the newer treadmills such as AFG 5.1 and AFG 7.1 offer lifetime motor and 5 years+ warranty on parts.
