by Jack on May 6, 2016

If you are wondering if the LifeSpan TR4000i treadmill will be a comfortable treadmill to use at home we will explain our opinion on this question. We also have a full review of this model, judging and rating the 5 most important areas to consider before buying.

What we want to say first before giving our opinion on the overall level of comfort this model will provide is this is a very hard area to judge. The reason why, we all have slightly different body mechanics when we walk or run, as well as, other characteristics specific to each person which will influence which treadmill model seem most comfortable.

Will it be comfortable to run on in your home?

The two main areas you will need to look at to help determine this is the cushion system and tread belt dimensions.

First, and easiest to explain are the dimensions of the tread belt and how this will relate to comfort. This is especially important if you plane to run. For runners the shortest length tread belt we recommend is 55-inches. This model has a 60-inch long belt.  So this will be suitable for runners as well as walkers and joggers.

Next, the cushion system. For the reasons mentioned above, this is the quality which is difficult to define or rate especially when comparing it with other treadmill models. Difficult in that we can not say this is the absolute best cushion system at its price point.

However, what we can say is this. The LifeSpan TR4000i treadmill is a mid-range, mid-priced model. So you should expect it to have a decent cushion system. Also, LifeSpan is a popular brand name company, which has served the industry for decades. They do put time and money into making improvements.

The cushion system on the LifeSpan TR4000i treadmill consisted of 8 compression shocks located throughout the length of the deck. From our experience this system is comparable to some of the better models offered in this particular price range.
