  • User capacity: The treadmill’s user capacity of 325 pounds can accommodate most exercisers.
  • Warranty: The LS 9.9 comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor and frame, a 3-year warranty on parts, and one year of in-home labor.

What We Don’t Like

  • Track length: The LS 9.9 T’s 55” track is about average. Some runners would prefer the 60” track of the LS 12.9 T or 16.9 T.


Our Verdict

The LiveStrong 9.9 treadmill gets consistently strong reviews for great basics such as a strong motor and a user-friendly console. Added value comes from the iPod-compatible dock and a Fitness Journal system. Topped off with a generous warranty package, the 9.9 looks like a great investment. For a bit more money, some users would prefer the 12.9T or 16.9 LifeStrong treadmills. These include extra horsepower, steeper inclines, and longer tracks.
