Does it have incline? 

LifeSpan incline Treadmills reviewWe have already rated and reviewed the LifeSpan TR 1200i folding treadmill. Overall in 2015-2016 we rate this as one of the top treadmills you can buy for around $1000.

Sometimes we receive specific questions from people visiting our site who are currently looking to buy a home treadmill. We were recently asked: Does the LifeSpan TR 1200i folding treadmill have incline controls?

Answer: This model does include the incline feature.

The incline on this model has 15 settings (grades, levels) which are controlled at the center console, simply by pushing the increase and decrease buttons.

My Zone Heart Rate

lifespan 1200i LCD center console incline controlsThis home treadmill model comes with 17 preset workout programs. Our favorite of these is the My Zone Heart Rate. This program works by measuring your heart rate and automatically adjusts the speed and incline to keep you at your target heart rate.  This is a very beneficial program because you need to stay at your target heart rate in order to increase your cardio vascular health.

The My Zone Interval is another useful program. This program allows you to preset the minimum and maximum rate that you want to keep your heart pumping at and the treadmill automatically increases and decreases speed and incline to keep you within this range.

This is useful because you know your body best and you know how you feel after working out. So you can experiment by setting a range of different max and minimum ranges of heart rates to find the right intensity that you feel best at during and after exercising.

As we mentioned at the top we did write an overall review rating the LifeSpan TR 1200i folding treadmill  if you are looking to spend less than $1000 we also have a list of other choices.
