This model has been discontinued.

The LS 13.0T is one of LiveStrong’s top treadmills, thanks to such features as a roomy 60”x20” walking surface and a commercial-grade 3.0 HP motor. A percentage of profits are donated to the Lance Armstrong Foundation to benefit cancer survivors. So you can feel better about where your money goes for this machine, even if you still feel funny about Lance Armstrong.
