The Life Fitness Elliptical Cross Trainer is great machine that replicates the stride and features of Life Fitness’ health club models. Coming in many different models with slightly different features, this is an upper-end priced elliptical cross trainer that lives up to its claims, is solidly built, and provides a great workout.
Life Fitness Elliptical Cross Trainers are some of the best selling high-end machines on the market, with an average product price of around $3000. Started as a company supplying to health clubs only, their cross over into the home gym market has been great for people wanting to workout at home (yet have that same health club feel when on their machine).
These cross trainers all are based on the technology that has made Life Fitness so popular, allowing for natural walking and running on the machine and the ability to adjust your stride on the fly. This is especially beneficial for tall users who have enjoyed the ability to stretch to a comfortable length (instead of feeling cramped and restricted on other home elliptical trainers).
The machine has some great features like the ability to customize workouts, electronically adjust your stride, and use heart rate hand sensors. It also has all the usual classic, HeartSync and special workouts, and electronic readouts, similar to that on the health club models. There are also total-body and lower-body workout models, that allow you to train different muscle groups. These are complemented by the ErgoGrip stationary handlebar, that provides added stability during lower body only workouts.
If you are looking for a premium elliptical cross trainer, Life Fitness is definitely the way to go. You will feel like you are at the gym in the comfort of your own home.
