PRLog - Sep. 13, 2009 - SALT LAKE CITY -- The LifeSpan TR4000i treadmill was awarded Best Treadmill in Health magazine’s America’s Healthiest Fitness Buys for 2009! The LifeSpan TR4000i treadmill was rated #1 over all other treadmills! Treadmills were reviewed and judged by a panel led by Lynn Allen, consultant for the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association (SGMA). Judges were impressed by the TR4000i’s innovative console, most notably its ability to save exercise data, including time, distance, calories, steps and heart rate, and transfer results to a personal online health and fitness management account to track progress.

A LifeSpan Fitness Club membership is included with each purchase of a TR4000i treadmill.
