The LifeSpan TR3000i also has some nice creature-comfort features like the MP3 player compatibility, book rack, and the ability to use a chest strap monitor, even though one is not included.

Additionally, this LifeSpan treadmill comes with a membership into the LifeSpan Club that will expand your exercise options and also track your performance from workout to workout.

What We Love About the LifeSpan TR3000i Treadmill:
The LifeSpan TR3000i Treadmill is a really good treadmill with a lot of great features. It has lifetime warranties on the frame and motor, which can add a little security to your purchase. The best feature about the TR3000i Folding Treadmill is the number of workout options that you get with this machine. Read on to hear more.
The LifeSpan TR3000i Treadmill is equipped with 22 programmed workouts. This is more than most competitor models and twice as many as some higher end models like the SOLE Fitness F80 and F85. The TR3000i Folding Treadmill also provides the ability to connect to the LifeSpan Club. LifeSpan Club will expand your exercise options and also track your performance from workout to workout. There are only a few other treadmill manufacturers like Nautilus, Schwinn and ProForm that provide an ability to connect outside the treadmill. The number of workout options on the LifeSpan TR3000i Folding Treadmill is definitely a bonus.
What Isn’t So Great about the LifeSpan TR3000i Treadmill:
At this price range, we would like to see that a chest strap heart rate monitor is included. That’s not the case here. Other competitors like SOLE Fitness and Nautilus will provide a chest strap at this price range. A bigger issue, however, with the heart rate monitoring on the LifeSpan TR3000i Treadmill is its accuracy. There are more than a few reviews out there for consumers who stated they have had problems. The problems range from the pulse readings being erratic to them not working at all. Some reviewers suggested that your palms need to be wet in order to get accurate readings from the contact sensors. Even more reason LifeSpan should be including a chest strap with the TR3000i Treadmill.
Final Word on the LifeSpan TR3000i Treadmill:
The LifeSpan TR3000i Treadmill is an excellent piece of exercise equipment. LifeSpan provides a lot of great patented features on this machine like Intelli-Guard, Intelli-Step and Intelli-Key. It was also has a great selection of workout options with the 22 programmed workouts and connection to LifeSpan Club. With that being said, don’t be afraid to shop around. There are a lot of great choices at this price range. Take a look at our reviews of the Nautilus T616 and SOLE Fitness F80, as well as, the LifeSpan TR1200i, which is almost identical to the LifeSpan TR3000i and is a couple hundred dollars cheaper.
