Conclusions

With no ups and downs, the CT9.1 is a treadmill that we do not, I repeat we do not recommend. It has its advantages, but the Livestrong 13.0T is almost half the price and has more pros than the CT9.1.

Pros

The motor is powerful and helps you keep a fast pace. But the LS 13.0T has a more powerful motor and allows users to outdo themselves.

The belt is reasonable. We felt comfortable during our workouts. But a heavier user can’t take advantage of this unit, unlike the LS 13.0T that has a longer belt, therefore more comfortable.

The display is user-friendly and makes it easy for us to check our feedback, especially since there is a Change Display button that allows you to check the desired information.

There are Speed and Incline quick keys, so it’s easy to alter speed and incline during tough workouts, which is always an advantage. The array of workouts combines many types of challenges, depending on what your needs are.

We must admit, working out on the CT9.1 is quite intense and we feel we’re making progress. And the cushioning system does its thing, so our bodies feel like new at the end. Still, Livestrong LS 13.0T has 2 more workouts, which can make the difference.

Main attraction

The eTrack feature is quite helpful. It’s effective to monitor your progress over time. It makes you more aware of your performance and motivates you.

Drawbacks

But on the other hand, the LS 13.0T has a log of its own. It’s called Livetrack Interactive System, and not only it tracks your overall performance, but also allows you to download it on the Livestrong website.

Another problem is that it’s extremely heavy, so you better do a month of training before taking this unit out of the car and into your house.

Livestrong 13.0T is $ 1100 cheaper and has a more powerful motor, a larger belt, more workouts and more user-friendly features.

All in all, we don’t recommend this treadmill, especially since it’s guaranteed for only 1 year on parts and labor. Livestrong 13.0T is much better, much cheaper and more aesthetic, which does count.
