Editor's Rating: 8.0/10
Update: This model has been discontinued. To find a suitable replacement, check out our treadmill finder here.

The L970 Club Treadmill is one of Landice’s newest models. It features an extra-roomy track, a 4.0 CHP motor, and 500-pound user weight capacity. The L970 Club also carries a generous 5-year commercial warranty. This version, which has a Pro Trainer console, is compatible with the Landice Vision entertainment system and the desk-like Landice WalkStation attachment with Internet.

What We Like

  • Simple Console – The Pro Trainer is the L970 Club’s basic console. It features an easy-to-use two-color display and can show workout data in English and metric units. Five preset workouts are included and there’s space for trainees to save five user-designed workouts too. A more advanced Landice console, the Pro Sports Trainer, adds on heart rate monitoring.
  • Roomy Treadbelt – The Landice L970 Club Treadmill has a 63” treadbelt to let all but the tallest runners reach a full stride. It’s 22” wide. In contrast, typical treadbelts measure about 55”x20”. This treadbelt also stands out for its shock absorption and durability.
  • Incline – The track can incline 12% to help simulate road running and provide more challenging workouts.
  • Powerful Motors – This model houses an American-made 3.0 HP (4.0 CHP) motor. The motor supports a high speed of 11 mph and can operate at top speed for 15 minutes without overheating. Additionally, the L970 Club also has a powerful secondary motor for the incline. With 1,000 pounds of thrust, it provides smooth elevation and declination even at top speeds.
  • iPod Pocket – A special iPod-sized non-slip pocket is built into the console for convenience.
  • High Capacity – The Landice L970 Club Treadmill has a 500-pound user weight capacity.
  • Excellent Warranty – Commercial and residential owners of this cardio trainer get the following warranty package: five years on the frame, motor, and other parts plus one year of labor regardless of how much the treadmill is used.

Our Verdict

The L970 Club Treadmill with a Pro Trainer console is a top-of-the-line option for busy commercial settings. That said, the new L970 isn’t much different from the L870. Unless you must always have the latest equipment, it wouldn’t hurt to spend a bit less on a treadmill frame by choosing an L870 or even an L770 instead. Spend the extra money on a Landice Cardio Trainer or Executive Trainer console.
