Editor's Rating: 7.0/10
This model has been discontinued.

LiveStrong treadmills are manufactured by Johnston Health Technology and are endorsed by cyclist Lance Armstrong. A percentage of profits are donated to LiveStrong’s Lance Armstrong Foundation, a non-profit that advocates for cancer survivors. All LiveStrong treadmills have lifetime warranties on the frame and motor.

The LS 9.9 Treadmill is a step above the brand’s entry-level 7.9 T. It retails for $999 while the 7.9 T sells for $799.

What We Like

  • Console: LiveStrong consoles are simple but sleek with easy-to-read LCD displays, built-in cup holders, and reading racks.
  • Motor: With a 2.75 HP motor, this home treadmill can support daily training.
  • Audio: LiveStrong treadmills come with speakers and an audio port that’s compatible with iPods and other MP3 players.
  • Fitness Journal and exercise programs: With LiveStrong’s Fitness Journal system and 12 built-in exercise programs, you can compare workout results with your personal best and with five previous workouts.
  • 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.

    Can you tell me how to get in touch with someone to get parts for mine. I need 2 new wheels, but I can't find out how to order them. If you can find me a Parts Departments Number to call or order from, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, Nancy Neal. I know this is not what you want to get in your email. Sorry....but can you help me get my parts.
