We've owned our Lifespan Sportz Treadmill for a decade now and it has been a truly reliable running machine, which has gotten hundreds of hours of use in our home gym. 

Practically, the only maintenance we ever do is spray a little lubricant on the treadmill mat every so often and give the whole machine a wipe down with a wet rag or towel after a workout.

If I recall correctly, we paid $2100 back in 2007 for our model, which was one of the top treadmills Lifespan was selling at the time and yes that's a lot of money. Nevertheless, it's nice to run on a machine similar to the types at the commercial gyms rather than a Kmart special that is flimsy and annoyingly wobbles all over the place when in use. You get what you pay for... 

I'm glad to see Lifespan Fitness is still a growing business and doing well all these years later and so they should because companies that make good quality products for reasonable prices deserve success. Obviously, I highly recommend Lifespan's treadmills.
