LiveStrong Treadmills

Are these Lance Armstrong endorsed exercisers worth buying?

LiveStrong treadmills are relatively new to the exercise market, introduced by Johnson Health Tech, a well known name in the fitness industry. They manufacture a variety of equipment, under such names as Vision, Matrix and Horizon.

You may have heard the name prior to finding out about the exercise equipment, as LiveStrong is the name of Lance Armstrong's Foundation, he of Tour De France fame. He endorses the equipment, and with every purchase money is donated to the foundation to help the fight against cancer.

LiveStrong fitness currently offers four different treadmills, as well as elliptical machines and bikes. Here we're just focusing on the treadmill offerings.

The entry level LiveStrong treadmill is the LS7.9T. It costs $799.99, with a 2.5 CHP motor, 0-12% incline, folding frame, 20" x 55" running surface, and up to 325 lb capacity.

Moving up the line you have the LS9.9T, which offers more power with 2.75 CHP motor, more training programs and larger size. You then have the LS12.9T and finally the LS16.9T, offering more of an incline, stronger motors, more training programs and a bigger deck. The top of the line 16.9T is currently available for $1699.99.

LiveStrong Fitness is currently offering free shipping, so it makes sense to buy it directly from the manufacturer online at the moment.

LiveStrong Treadmills...A Smart Buy?

Although it's still too early to tell, initial feedback has been positive for these treadmills. We took a look at an LS12.9T and construction seems to be rather solid, especially compared to some of the Horizon models that it is replacing at Dick's Sporting Goods stores nationwide.

There is ample running space on all models, and all models have mp3/iPod compatibility, as well as special cushioning and an impressive lifetime motor and frame warranty. Parts and labor warranties improve as you work your way up the LiveStrong treadmill line.

They are competitively priced, and the company promises more bang for the buck, so if you're in the market, it's a good choice.

Fitness Events Opinion & Recommendation:

We like what we see so far from LiveStrong Fitness. The treadmills seem to be of high quality, and from what we've seen and read thus far, feedback has been positive.

We like the fact that the company stands behind the product, with an impressive warranty and in-home service promise. The fact that the money from each person goes to help fight cancer is an added incentive, one you won't find elsewhere.

We recommend you take a look at the entire line of LiveStrong treadmills and decide for yourself. We think you'll be happy with your purchase.

If you do decide to purchase one of the LS treadmills, drop us a line and let us know what your experiences have been. We constantly update our reviews so anything you can tell us, positive or negative, will be very helpful for our visitors.
