Product Summary

Looking for a club-quality treadmill? The Life Fitness Club Series is one you have likely seen in gyms as it is one of Life Fitness’ best selling models. This tank of a treadmill comes equipped with a 4.0 horsepower motor that supports speeds from 0.5 to 12 miles per hour and incline ranges from 0% to 30%. While there is no decline option, these ranges offer plenty of variability to get in some intense training.

The console features intuitive controls with a “Go System Quick Start” feature that remembers your preferred speed with the click of a button. The large running surface has the patented FlexDeck shock absorption system, which is claimed to reduce impact to joints by nearly 30% when compared to other treadmills. But, it will support weights up to 500 pounds, impressive by any measure.

This treadmill is large and heavy so will need a space carved out for its use. It comes equipped with the capability of saving six personalized workouts, however, there is no information on other programmed workouts. Compared to similarly priced treadmills, the Life Fitness Club Series Treadmill falls short. The monitor is basic and you can not connect with any immersive training platforms.

      This commercial-grade treadmill is heavy and expensive but built like a tank with a powerful motor. If you are not interested in immersive training or pre-programmed workouts, this may be a choice for you.
