Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.60 stars, and the price range is $1499.00-$1499.99.

The LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 combines a treadmill with a versatile desktop work surface and supports all your productivity tools - laptop, printer, LCD display, phones and more. The simple and convenient desktop mounted treadmill console provides readouts for Speed, Calories, Steps Taken and Distance travelled. This well-made and sturdy machine allows you to exercise while you work. The padded armrests across the front of the desk offer enhanced user comfort. It also comes with a shock absorbing deck suspension to provide comfort and reduce stress on the joints. The TR1200-DT comes standard with two of LifeSpan’s trademarked technologies: The built-in Intelli-Guard automatically stops the belt if you step off during your walk and Intelli-Step counts and records the number of steps you take and displays them on the console.

This LifeSpan Treadmill Desk has a height adjustment feature from 40" - 56" support users from 4'10" to 6'8" tall.  An unbelievably quite, high torque motor supports speeds from .4 - 4.0 MPH to provide optimal performance and is supported by a Lifetime Motor Warranty. The treadmill platform is built off the multiple award winning TR 1200i treadmill and the TR 1200 DT features a spacious 20 x 56 walking surface.  Users who work long hours from their home love this machine and find it well worth the price.

However, this treadmill is meant for low speed walking only as the maximum speed is only 4.0 MPH. Some user reviews say that this machine is expensive at its current price point.

Overall, the LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk is an excellent combination of treadmill and working desk.  Made for the mid-level user, it’s the perfect option for single users who expect to do a lot of their work on the treadmill desk or for small teams expecting to share throughout the day.
