Landice has over 35 years of field experience in the harshest fitness club environments, and the Landice L970 Club Pro Sports Trainer represents the culmination of this experience.
The Pro Sports Trainer panel features the same two-color, hi-definition displays as the Cardio Trainer but without the heart-rate control programs and display.
Wireless chest-strap, heart-rate monitoring is included. AccuTrack contact monitoring is optional.
Before beginning this review, it is worthwhile pausing to offer an explanation as to what the different model names in the Landice range mean.
We know from experience that this has caused some confusion amongst customers in the past, so the following is an overview of the Landice range to enable you to decide which Landice Light Commercial or Full Commercial exercise treadmill will meet your needs.
Landice Range – Model differences
The only difference between a Pro Sports Trainer, Cardio Trainer, and Executive Trainer is the display. The Pro Sports Trainer has a basic display, while the Executive has an “amazing” display.
The difference between the L7, L8, and L9 treadmills is the rollers and deck length. They get heavier and more durable as you go up, and the running surface gets longer.
The L7’s are available in the LTD (Light Commercial) and Club (Full Commercial) versions.
The L8’s are available in the LTD (Light Commercial) version only.
The L9’s are available in the Club (Full Commercial) version only.
The treadmill offers built-in programs and user-defined fitness programs. Users are guided through their workout with a unique program progress indicator.
The tread belt is driven by a powerful motor – Landice uses a 3 horsepower continuous-duty drive motor. Made in the USA, this motor can continuously deliver 3 HP without overheating.
Wearing the safety lanyard with a magnetic key switch provides added security should you need to stop quickly during your exercise session.
The Shock Absorption System Landice Treadmills feature is the “Softer than Grass” VFX shock absorption system.
Landice uses a high-inertia cast flywheel which not only provides a smooth feel, but also protects the motor and electronics from damaging foot-plant spikes that reduce life.
The L970 Club Pro Sports Trainer uses large diameter rollers which require less tension than smaller rollers since they have more surface area to grab the belt.
