Landice Treadmill Review
Landice treadmills are some of the highest rated commercial treadmills in the industry.
They are strong in terms of construction, cushioning and durability.
They took home several ‘Best Buy’ awards several years back including high ratings from Consumer’s Guide, Runner’s World and other leading Consumer Magazines.
Landice units are a popular choice for gyms or health clubs. However they have also introduced a ‘Lighter’ lineup (the LTD series) suitable for the home.
Landice has a long history behind them. They have been making treadmills for over 35 years.
One thing that sets them apart is that they specialize in making only treadmills (not treadmills – and ellipticals and exercise bikes and home gyms and free weights and etc…)
Landice has placed over 50,000 treadmills in the health club environment – which gives them a lot of experience making a high end treadmill that lasts.
#1) Excellent Cushioning – Landice treadmills offer VFX cushioning (which is 5 times softer than grass) and Orthopedic cushioning (which is 7 times softer than grass)
#2) 4-ply treadbelts – These are twice as strong as the 2 ply treadbelts most home treadmill brands use. (This helps prolong the life of the treadbelt and improves cushioning).
#3) Lifetime treadmill warranty (for home use) that can also be assigned to the next owner. (1 year service) You can’t get any better than this – another indicator of the quality of construction.
#4) Aircraft locking hardware makes the frame even stronger than the standard welded treadmill frame.
#5) 400-500 pound user weight capacities make them perfect for higher weight users, sophisticated runners and athletes. This also provides an extremely stable feel when working out at full speed.
#6) High Landice Treadmill Reviews – These are some of the best in the industry, having been voted #1 by Runner’s World Magazine for customer satisfaction. They’ve also received awards from Consumer Guide, Men’s Fitness and another leading consumer magazine.
We’ve tried several Landice units out – mostly at small business and condo gyms. Although the consoles (especially on the L7 Pro Sports Trainer) were fairly simple, the treadmills were built like a truck and felt amazingly solid.
The only drawback to these treadmills is the price. Starting around $3500 and up these are high end, commercial treadmills that are probably more than most people need.
With high grade construction, advanced electronics, superior cushioning and lifetime warranties, Landice units are beautiful machines that will last you a long time.
Price tag considered however, a Landice is probably more than most buyers need. If you still want commercial grade treadmill for under $2000, you might want to check out the Smooth brand first, which still offers excellent construction, high user ratings and some of the best cushioning systems on the market.
However if you’re looking for a health club treadmill that can take a serious beating and still last you years, Landice is a great option.
