THE PRODUCT IS SOLID BUT I HAD TROUBLE WITH GETTING THE BELT CENTERED. CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE 3 TIMES BEFORE I GOT SOMEONE WHO WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE ENOUGH TO HELP. THE BELT STILL SEEMS TO DRIFT SOME BUT AT LEAST ITS NOT RUBBING NOW, I AM SATISFIED BUT WAS EXPECTING BETTER.

Enjoying getting fit
We had been given a used treadmill years back that finally died on us. We replaced it with a LiveStrong and enjoy all the added features. I step on, log in as user #1 pick the incline setting,my amount of time, turn on the fan and Ipod and off I go. I enjoy it so much I could walk for hours. The controls are easy to use. I like that it has different users so you can log in your info and it tracks how you are doing. The speakers for the Ipod sound good and if my husband is watching tv while on his machine, I just put on my head set througjh the treadmill and it sounds just as good. I like the tread settings also, it helps with the arthritis in my feet when I set in on the softest tread. All in all a great asset to our work out routines
What I needed
I recently had a heart attack and am going through a cardio rehab program. I need to excercise at home and decided to purchase a treadmill. This treadmill works well for what I need it to do. I do not run, just walk. It's probably more than what I need. It runs well. We had only minor problems putting it together since it was made in China and the tooling is not as good as what is done in the US. Bolts were sloppily threaded. Delivery was exactly as described and on time.
Top quality machine. One of the better pieces of exercise equipment I purchased,
total value for the price, no problem to assemble. I have been using it daily,
real sturdy, totally satisfied.

Treadmill for health
I just Googled treadmills, saw a Guru article, which linked me to Livestrong. Basically took a chance. Turned out to be everything I wanted, great price, fast delivery, runs quiet and smooth. My 18 yr. old set it up.
Excellent quality, Thanks for that alone.
Easy to Use
This treadmill is great if you have a smaller area. It is simple to use and has a great variety of built in workouts. It's nice to listen to an ipod while your working out. It does a nice job of keeping track of workout totals too.
Perfect treadmill! My whole family uses it! Looks great, works great!
It does everything and its easy to use my settings!
This is a GREAT treadmill
My husband and I have both been using this treadmill regularly for over 2 months. It is such a smooth run and there are many features that make this a great product! I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good treadmill!
I've had my LS8.OT for 14 months and have had the repairman out three times.
The motor control board has gone out twice and now the machine has a broken bolt that holds the running board to the frame. I use my treadmill at least four days a week for walking only... no running or incline. I expected better quality for the amount of money I paid.
Great Machine at a Great Price
I bought my treadmill the day after Thanksgiving. I've already put on over 100 miles. Easy to use, easy to store. I strongly recommend it. The 12 mph was a big selling point on on-sale I couldn't pass it up.
I was skeptical at first because I run on treadmills in the gym that cost anywhere between $3,000-10,000. This treadmill is amazing! Not going to lie . . . the reason I bought it was because I got it for $599. I walked on it tonight and ran as well (I weigh 230 lbs.). I can’t believe how smooth this treadmill is. I weighed 199 lbs. in 2009 because I was training for a half marathon—this treadmill will definitely get me back in shape. Just hope it lasts me for a long time. Oh yeah, I originally bought it for my wife as a Christmas gift but when she’s not home I’ll be using it!
This treadmill is amazing. It folds away to make more space for you making it easier to move around,. It also has 12 speeds, 9 workout programs and the maxcomfort cushioning system. It's perfect for beginners. If you are looking for something even more amazing, the Livestrong LS10.0T treadmill has even more options. It has a cushioning system that helps your legs recover faster from running so often, you can choose a speed ranges up to 12mph and has tons of workout programs for you to choose from.
I've had this unit for a month now and love it. It was easy to put together and it works very well, very easy to use. I wanted a treadmill for weight loss, I'm a couch potato. Now I can do it all while watching TV. If your looking for a quality treadmill that is simple to use with out extra function you don't need, this is the one. Its great for walking or running. It well built and looks like it will be problem free and work for years! If your picky like me about what you get for your money, I've saved you some research time. Find this unit on sale! No treadmill is worth the actual price.
Hope this helps you! ! As you can tell, I'm Happy!
Good for family use
Our first treadmill, having just owned a elliptical previously. Current discounted price makes it a worthy purchase. Just slightly expensive compared to entry level treadmills but the quality is excellent.
Price : 5*
Had our delivered and installed - dont think i could fix it on my own, the parts certainly looked solid and heavy. The collapsible treadmill is a bonus feature. But i'm not going to move it - its heavy. The motor is not noisy
Build : 4*
Like the built in fan. The quick start buttons for the tilt and speed it easy to use.
The treadmill can also be adjusted for firmness. Comes with built in speaker, just hvnt used it yet. User settings also remembers last keyed-in info.
Programs can be saved/downloaded to the treadmill using supplied USB stick.
Features : 5*
Exactly What I Needed
I purchased this treadmill about a month and a half ago. Since I was almost 300 pounds I needed on rated at 325 instead of 300 or 250. I use it every day and have lost 26 pounds in about 40 days. I had been a member of a gym and had been using commercial treadmills for a while. This has many features of a commercial treadmill. The heart monitor doesn't work very well but the rest is great. My wife has started using it. We are very pleased with the purchase.
Set up was quick and easy. It comes with all the tools you need and was put together by one adult. The unit is solid and definitely a great buy at this price point. It does the job we want.
Great value for average user
I'm a 48 year old female couch potato (but not for long) and put this together by myself with ease. The instructions are very clear and concise and everything is working beautifully. The only issue is the console is not as sturdy as I would have liked but at this price.....I can not complain.
everything is pretty good on it, i guess the 4/5 is because i was expecting a lot out of it, but it was 800$ which is quite a lot. everything works and runs great only thing i dont like is the screen itself, not a lot of pixels in the screen so it looks like the scoreboard on a highschool football field where there's only 6 pixels that makes all letters and numbers. and i was expecting to be able to save my name instead of just user1 or user2. but works great, no mechanical errors or suckiness. BUT they dont choose the best deliverer. they called me on wednesday to set up delivery and pretty much just said "we make deliveries in your areas on wednesday" so i had to wait a whole week when it was just sitting in their possession. and they only deliver it to inside the house and THATS it, its extremely heavy so it was hard for me to get it in my basement. but product is GOOD, dont get me wrong
Perfect for our 2 different runner types
Overall gets a 5. I have no idea how to rate the other star categories, so just left blank. Wife is a slender runner and I'm recovering so trying to rebuild endurance. I can only walk, hope to jog soon, etc. For the price, speed up to 12 and 2.5CHP motor, this fits the 2 different needs very well. And we're happy to have had inside delivery with assembly (I can't lift).
Very easy to put together, great delivery, works great. I'm impressed with the treadmill itself, along with the added features like the fan, speaker/sound system, and the mat I purchased to put underneath the machine.
Great machine for a great value, was a very hard choice between the Livestrong Elliptical and Tredmill. But to change up the exercises im about to order a LS10.0E Elliptical to have as well for more of a relaxing feel and to help tone out the upper body.
