The LifePro Pacer treadmill features a pretty sturdy frame made of steel tubing. All the steel tubes in its construction are coated with a rust-resistant and chip-resistant paint finish. The color used is gray, this being the only color available for this treadmill, at least for the moment.
The machine is not too large. Its net footprint is 59.4″L x 27.2″W (151 x 69 cm). However, it is recommended to leave some clearance all around it (at least two feet on each side, and at least three feet at the rear), so it may not fit too well in a small room.
On the other hand, the treadmill is foldable. Its deck folds up so you can save some space. With the deck folded, the unit’s footprint remains at approx. 32.1″L x 27.2″W (81.5 x 69 cm). Also, the folding mechanism consists of a hydraulic cylinder that slowly lowers the deck when unfolded to prevent damage.
The treadmill is not super heavy. Its net weight is 115 lbs (52 kg). This being said, the packaged unit may require two people or a box trolley. However, once it is assembled, it can easily be moved by only one person as its front base frame features transport wheels. The rear stabilizers also integrate wheels.
Deck construction and incline
The LifePro Pacer treadmill is equipped with a motorized incline system. This being said, you can adjust the incline of the deck while during running. Also, some of the console programs adjust the incline automatically when selected.
The unit’s incline system consists of a small lift and a motor (different from the drive motor). Therefore, when you adjust the incline, or when the console adjusts the incline, the motor controls the lift which elevates or lowers the front part of the deck. There are 12 levels of incline. The console has controls for gradual incline adjustment, and also for the quick selection of the 6% and 9% incline settings.
The machine’s deck is pretty sturdy. However, due to the incline system, the maximum weight capacity of the machine is only 220 lbs (100 kg). The belt is multi-layered with a non-slip top layer and a shock absorption layer. The running platform also integrates several cushioning elements which are partially visible on each side. This being said, the machine delivers a more comfortable ride for your joints.
The LifePro Pacer treadmill offers a running surface of 49.2″L x 16.5″W inches (125L x 42W cm). This being said, it should be able to accommodate users up to 6’0″ (183 cm). Taller persons should still be able to use this treadmill but for walking only; at high-speed settings, they may not benefit from a complete range of motion.
Last but not least, the deck step-up height is approx. 5.5″ (14 cm). With the incline set to maximum, the front of the deck will gain a few inches. Therefore, it is recommended to use this machine in a room with a ceiling that is at least 10″ (25 cm) higher than the height of the taller user.
The LifePro Pacer is an electric treadmill. Therefore, it requires an external power source. It integrates a 1.75 HP motor which is not one of the most powerful but should withstand running workouts with no problem. It also features a small flywheel for improved stability and reduced vibration.
The motor offers a speed range between 0.6 and 9.9 MPH. Although the starting speed of the running belt is 0.6 MPH, the speed can be adjusted in increments of 0.1 MPH. This type of micro-adjustment is quite a plus as it gives you the possibility to change your pace with ease, without losing balance.
Just as for incline, if you choose to exercise by using one of the onboard programs, the machine will auto-adjust the speed of the running belt. Differently put, some of the programs will auto-adjust both the incline of the deck and the speed of the belt. Also, along with the gradual speed controls, the console provides quick speed adjustment control buttons for 3.7 MPH (6 km/h), and 5.6 MPH (9 km/h).
Last but not least, since it’s a basic motor, its power consumption is also minimal. Also, the motor itself doesn’t generate a lot of noise when in use, but depending on how fast you run, or how you run, your cadence may generate more or less noise.
The LifePro Pacer is equipped with a LED display console. The display is split into three windows. From left to right, the windows indicate incline/distance, time/calories, and speed/pulse. Speed and distance can be set either to metric or English units. For pulse reading, you can either use the sensors integrated into the handrails, or the included HR chest belt monitor.
The machine’s console has Bluetooth connectivity and is compatible with the Kinomap and AnyRun apps. Therefore, if you have a subscription for them, you can use custom programs, as well as follow virtual paths based from various places around the world which should sync with the speed of your treadmill. The apps also offer various fitness challenges, track your progress online, etc.
If you don’t want to use a fitness app, the treadmill still has you covered. The console has 36 pre-set programs which offer various types of workouts. These programs adjust both speed and incline. Along with these pre-set programs, the console offers 3 user-defined programs, 3 heart rate programs, 3 goal settings (for time, distance, and calories), and 1 BMI program.
The console also has built-in speakers. Therefore, you can connect your phone, tablet, or MP3 player via AUX cable to the console in order to play your music through the integrated sound system for a better sound quality. The speakers do not use the Bluetooth function and the console does not have a USB port like the LifePro Swift treadmill.
Assembly and Maintenance
The treadmill comes almost completely assembled. You only need to unbox it, unfold it, secure the two front bars in the upright position, and plug the treadmill in. This shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. All the necessary tools are included. The manual provides clear, step-by-step assembly instructions.
For maintenance, you should keep the machine clean, especially the belt to prevent any dirt or textile fibers from being caught into the motor. The belt requires lubrication before the first use; a bottle of lubricant is included. Also, the console has an error (E1) function that will appear on the display if the belt requires more lubricant.
