As a compact treadmill, the TR100 treadmill has features that make this model a decent purchase. Those who lack the space are the most attracted by this treadmill. But there are lots of minuses that you have to accept if you want to buy it. This is why this is a treadmill that we recommend to light and small users, for light jogging only.
LifeSpan TR100 comes with both advantages and disadvantages. But let’s start with the pros.
First off, you take it out of the box and you place it right where you want it, no assembling, no neighbors needed to help you out, no screws missing. It comes already assembled, which is something most users look for. Its dimensions make it easy to store, either under the bed or against a wall.
Secondly, the TR100 has attractive speed workouts. But the motor has little power so you have to keep limit your speed.
Another detail we like about this model is that it’s quiet. And it weighs little, so you won’t need any help to move it around.
As far as disadvantages go, the lack of incline is the most important. But because this is not a treadmill for those who want to prepare for a race, it’s something you don’t need. The treadmill is built for walkers and light joggers only (to do that minimum 30 minutes of daily exercise).
Then, there is the running surface. It’s quite narrow, so taller and heavier users shouldn’t consider this model. As this is a lightweight treadmill, it doesn’t offer that much stability.
The TR100 is a treadmill for small apartments. If you have the necessary space, you should consider a larger deck and bigger motor. More details about this unit can be found here.
