This gives you a wide range to choose from, regardless of your ultimate fitness goals. For the heart rate programs you can utilize the grips or wireless readings for more accuracy if you have a chest strap.
Bluetooth Tracking Capability
Although it costs extra (around $30 currently), the 3000i offers a Bluetooth adapter that allows you to track all of your workouts through the LifeSpan Active Trac app and sync them to your favorite fitness apps as well.
This is a great feature for those who like to stay on top of their workouts from week to week and see how they are progressing, set goals, share with friends, etc.
The LifeSpan TR3000i folds for easy storage after your workout. With its hydraulic system all you need to do is lift up the deck and the treadmill does all of the work for you.
Other Great Features

There’s a lot to like about the TR3000i. It is well built, well designed, has good cushioning, solid incline, folding capability and a wide array of workouts to choose from.
Although the Bluetooth capability is really nice, you do have to pay a little extra to get it. Also, the deck is a bit short, so if you are a runner or on the taller side this one might not work for you.
If you’re looking for a solid entry level treadmill that folds, provides some good cushioning and a nice amount of workouts, the TR3000i might be the right machine for you.
If you are taller, take a look at the up-level TR4000i model with a longer 20 x 60″ deck as well as a more powerful motor.
If you need something wider look at the TR5500i as well.
