Rise of the Machines -- L8 Treadmill Review

"I love that you can change workouts in the middle of a run without completely starting over -- it kept my time and mileage when I changed programs." -- RW Gear Lab Tester


November 2013

Based in Randolph New Jersey, Landice is very proud of their legacy. As a second-generation family business which began in 1967, Landice is one of the only cardio equipment manufacturers who engineers, tests and assembles their products in the USA. And with more “Best Buy” awards than any other brand available worldwide, Landice is in a class of their own.
Built to commercial-grade spec, the L7 Pro Trainer represents the culmination of Landice quality. With its whisper-quiet 4 HP continuous duty motor, rust-free, aircraft-quality aluminum frame, 20” x 58” surface featuring VFX and Pro Trainer console, it should come as no surprise to know that this Landice is one of the very best treadmills on the market and the 2014 FIT PROF Head of the Class BEST BUY treadmill under $4,000 for the second time.

Feel the breeze from the perfectly tuned fan. Watch the animated runner tick off miles on the console's full-color screen, which sits between beautifully simple, easy-to-use buttons. If the animation isn't enough, pick your head up and gaze at the 15-inch-screen LCD TV straight ahead of you. It has a DVD player built in, just in case you're going to be here for a while. Or look down, below the fan, to where your iPod sits docked above the console screen. Chest-thumping sound pours from stereo speakers, jamming your power song as you stride across the inch-thick deck. Set the speed faster. The motor caught right up, didn't it? Same with the incline--make any changes and this machine is on it.

Landice L7 - Executive Trainer
“If you want the best - and can afford it - the L7 is the bad boy. ”
“With sold design, VFX shock-absorption system to soften impact, a rustproof aluminum frame and a four-ply belt, it's designed to handle the pounding of a lineman.”
“But the L7 has a sensitive side, too: A magnetic foot-plant monitoring system that corrects belt speed 30,000 times per second to eliminate belt surge. Electronics include six built-in and five user-defined programs, along with a sophisticated, yet easy to use, display with interactive graphics such as lifelike computer animation and a training calendar for up to six users. Also included is a fully automatic heart rate control program and wireless heart rate.”

ConsumerGuide Best Buy

Rarely are Best Buy selections chosen from the higher price points because value is a key consideration in any buy being the best. The Landice Road Runner L8 is an exception of sorts to this rule, because this treadmill is so unique in its design.
Quality and durability are certainly inherent in this top-of-the-line treadmill, but the automobile design is the thing. The design stays true to the illusion in every detail. You start the treadmill's operation with an ignition key. You increase speed with a red-knobbed gear shift, and there's an identical gear shift to control the level of incline. Add to this a built-in six-disc CD player and it's "zoom, zoom, zoom." Other automobile-like features of the console are round analog speedometers and a track display to diagram the distance run on the oval track--and all this inside a realistic replica of a late model car radio faceplate. Non-concept features are a brushed aluminum frame, 3-hp continuous-duty engine, and Landice's trademark VFX shock absorption system. It may seem a bit pricey, but to see it is to believe it. The Landice Road Runner L8 is a special Best Buy.
"Top of the Line"
 Landice prides themselves on manufacturing treadmills, and their focus pays off in units like the L7. The four-ply belt and VFX shock-absorption system work wonders, but the real magic is in the control panel. It features the latest applications of computer graphics down to animation of a runner in a little screen in the center of the console. There are six user-designed programs that can be altered to your own specifications, along with seven built-in programs for the unimaginative. The computer even allows for six different training calendars so everyone in the family can follow their own plan. A magnetic foot-plant monitoring system is constantly correcting belt speed to eliminate belt surge. The L7 features a rust-proof aluminum frame. The Landice L7 Executive Trainer is surely top of the line.
