MAKING A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY ONE PERSON AT A TIME
Body Basics features the highest performing home fitness equipment with the best selection, customer-focused presentation and professional service.
Whether walking, jogging, or running, treadmills utilize the body’s natural motion with a choice of pre-set programs and intensity levels. Treadmills also give users the benefit of reduced impact from a variety of different shock absorption systems.
The top rated treadmill six years runnning by the leading consumer magazine. With your first step onto a Landice treadmill you become part of a unique workout experience-one that delivers a health-club quality workout in the privacy of your own home.
Assignable Lifetime Warranty-All Parts, Labor-1 Year
The Landice frame is made of aircraft quality 6063-T6 aluminum and secured with aircraft locking hardware. Costing three times more than steel, aluminum gives our frame the strength to support a user weighing up to 500 lbs.
Landice uses a 4 HP continuous duty drive motor. Made in the USA, this motor can continuously deliver 4 HP in our treadmill without overheating.
Importance of horsepower rating
A 2.0 HP motor will run twice as hot as a 4 HP motor delivering the same load. The hotter a motor runs, the faster it will burn out. A good analogy involves a pickup truck and a dump truck. You can load both with the same number of bricks and drive them across the country back and forth for a year. The dump truck, however, will obviously last much longer.
Larger rollers provide for less friction and longer life
The larger the roller diameter, the less tension required on the treadbelt since the roller has more surface area to grab the belt. Decreased tension means decreased friction and longer life on belts and bearings.
Larger rollers allow us to use a large industrial bearing
Landice treadmills use a 2.05” industrial bearing. Even some of our competitors’ larger institutional rollers use a less durable 1” bearing with a spacer to fill the rest of the tube. Landice roller bearings are completely sealed using polyurethane gaskets
Landice rollers weigh 14 pounds (L7 Series) and 22 pounds (L8 Series)
If you pick up a Landice roller, you will notice it weighs significantly more than our competitors’. In fact, it weighs more than many of our competitors’ flywheels. Our rollers actually act as two extra flywheels in the treadmill, further contributing to smooth operation and longer treadmill life.
Landice 4-ply treadbelts are twice as strong as our competitors’
Lift up the edge of a Landice treadbelt and count the number of layers. You will easily see the 4 layers which make up the treadbelt. Compare us to our competitors. You will notice that most use a 2-ply treadbelt. Although costing significantly more, this 4-ply belt provides twice the strength of a 2-ply belt.
Why do I need a strong treadbelt?
As a treadbelt stretches, it begins to slip. In order to compensate for this slippage, every treadmill has two take-up or tensioning screws on the rear roller, which are used to re-tighten the treadbelt. The problem with weaker 2-ply belts is that eventually (usually outside the warranty period) the belt has stretched to the point where the rear roller hits the back of the treadmill and can no longer be tightened. The over-stretched treadbelt must then be replaced. Even under the heaviest institutional usage, Landice 4-ply belts do not over-stretch..
The VFX (Variable Flex) system features multiple shock-absorbing elements, which self-tune to a user’s stride to provide optimal performance in the strike, thrust, and kick zones.
Absorbing shock in the vertical direction only, the VFX system is softest when the runner’s foot strikes the deck. During this strike, the system does not allow side-to-side or rocking motions, which can be harmful to joints and knees.
Because the floating deck system can not move backwards, the system provides firm thrust and a stiffer kick zone creating a realistic “outdoor” feel regardless of where you run on the deck (front, middle, or rear).
