The LifePro Electrostride treadmill is constructed on a steel frame. It combines oval, cylindrical, and rectangular tubes in its construction, all of them coated with a thick, corrosion-resistant, and abrasion-resistant paint finish. The color used is gray, this being the only color available for this treadmill.
The fully assembled unit has a pretty compact footprint, which is great for apartment use. It is approx. 57.8″ (147 cm) long, and 30″ (76 cm) wide. It is also recommended to allow at least two feet of clearance on each side of the walking platform, and at least three feet of clearance at its rear for safe usage and ease of access.
One of the important features that we must mention here is the adjustability of the two upright bars. They offer several inches of height adjustment, up to 6′ (183 cm) above floor level, while the lowest position of the console is approx. 51″ (130 cm). The two adjustable sections of the upright bars can easily be secured into position via two turn knobs.
Like many other treadmills made for home use, the LifePro Electrostride features a folding design. The two upright bars with the console can fold down alongside the deck and the machine can be stored either vertically or even under a bed if there is at least 6″ (16 cm) of clearance underneath it. The dimensions of the folded unit are 65.7″L x 30″W x 5.5″H (167 x 76 x 14 cm).
Although it’s not a super large treadmill, the LifePro Electrostride is fairly heavy. Its net weight is approx. 91.5 (41.5 kg). This being said, the transport of the packaged unit may require two persons. However, once the treadmill is assembled, it can easily be moved by only one person as its front base bar is equipped with two transport wheels.
Deck construction and step-up height
First of all, the LifePro Electrostride treadmill doesn’t have an incline system. Therefore, you cannot adjust the angle of the deck. Also, the deck is horizontal, not slightly slanted as it is the case for other running machines, such as the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7946, for example. This being said, it provides a neutral, natural stride.
The belt has a multi-layer structure. The top layer is rubberized, designed for an improved grip. The inner layers are meant to reduce impact and for a superior contact with the rollers.
The machine doesn’t have a super large walking platform. The active surface of the belt is 48″L x 17.7″W (122 x 45 cm). Therefore, this treadmill is designed for walking and jogging, even if it provides speed levels up to 8.7 MPH. For walking, almost any person should be able to use it as long as they don’t exceed the specified 198 lbs (90 kg) weight limit. However, for running, users over 6’0″ (183 cm) may not benefit from a complete range of motion.
The LifePro Electrostride treadmill doesn’t have large cushions visible on each side of the deck like most commercial machines do. However, the deck does have several internal shock absorption elements concealed by the side rail covers. The deck also has a bit of flex, so a walk or jog on this treadmill delivers a lesser impact on your joints, than a walk on asphalt or cement.
The exact dimensions (diameter) of the internal rollers are not specified. However, they have a crowned design for improved traction and they integrate industrial-grade ball bearing for smooth operation.
Last but not least, the height of the walking surface is approx. 4.5″ (12 cm). This facilitates entry and exit and shouldn’t result in any ceiling issues, even if you use the machine in a room with a low ceiling level.
The LifePro Electrostride treadmill is equipped with a 2.0 HP motor. It’s not a super-powerful treadmill motor but still offers the possibility to run for a fairly long period of time without overheating. It is also equipped with a small flywheel for improved motion stability.
The machine offers a speed range between 0.6 MPH and 8.7 MPH. The speed adjustment increments are 0.1 MPH. There are controls for gradual speed adjustment available on the console, but also on the front handlebar of the machine. This treadmill does not have controls for quick speed adjustment, though. So, when you want to reach 6 MPH, for example, you will have to press and hold one of the + speed controls.
Since the treadmill’s motor is not super powerful and only offers a peak output of 2.0 HP, its power consumption is also minimal. This being said, even if you will be using it daily, it shouldn’t add more than a few dollars to the electricity bill. Also, the motor itself doesn’t generate a lot of noise when in use, but depending on how fast you go, your cadence may generate more or less noise.
The LifePro Electrostride treadmill features a minimalistic console with a 2-window LED display. It tracks time, speed, distance, calories, and pulse. Distance and calories share the left window, while speed, time, and pulse share the right window. Speed and distance are by default set to English units (MPH and miles), but there is also the option of setting them to Metric units (kmh and kilometers). The pulse reading function is grip contact only. In other words, the console can only read your pulse if you hold on to the sensors integrated into the front handlebar of the treadmill.
This treadmill offers a pretty impressive range of workout programs. To begin with, there are three user-defined programs (U1, U2, U3). This being said, you can create three custom programs with 10 segments each, and select the duration and speed for each segment.
Next, there are 36 pre-set programs (P1 – P36). Each program has 10 segments and for each segment, there is a pre-set speed. For each pre-set program, the default duration is 30 minutes, but you can change this at the start of the programs. The duration of each workout segment is a 10th of the total set up duration.
There is also a BMI (or Body Fat) program. This program is designed to measure your body fat depending on weight, height, age, and gender. Once you input all these values, the console will calculate your Body Mass Index and based on this result, you can determine whether you need to exercise more, increase, or decrease your diet.
Last but not least, the machine’s console has Bluetooth connectivity and is compatible with various fitness apps such as AnyRun or Kinomap. It comes with two QR codes that you can scan in order to sync your treadmill with the desired app for online progress and history tracking, various workout plans, interactive training, virtual training, and more.
Assembly and Maintenance
The Electrostride treadmill comes pre-assembled. You only need to remove it from its box, unfold and secure its upright bars into position, unfold the handlebar, attach the tablet holder, and the bottle holder. This shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes of your time. All the necessary tools are included, and the manual provides very clear instructions for the task. It is also important to mention here, that in order to benefit from the lifetime warranty, you have to register your product on the official Lifepro website within two weeks from purchase.
For maintenance, the belt requires periodic lubrication. A bottle of treadmill oil is included. It is also recommended to keep the belt clean and remove the perspiration from the machine after use, if necessary. The motor casing is also easy to remove and it is recommended to vacuum inside, if necessary. The manual provides all the necessary maintenance instructions as well.
