The Discover tablet consoles have what we at Life Fitness like to call “discoverable depth.” You can hit quick start and get going right away, or you can personalize your indoor workout experience with options on-screen and on LFconnect.com.
For those who want to discover more of the cool features on our Elevation Series products, check out a few of my favorite features:
Click into each data point on the screen to customize the type of data you see (or hide it all together). If you’re an LFconnect member, you can even create and save your data settings online and they will be there every time you log onto the machine.

The 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was a hot bed of tech geeks, reporters, app developers and some of the most innovative consumer electronics companies in the world. We saw everything from a helicopter you could control with your thoughts to a fork that tells you when you’re eating too fast, and an ultra hi-def TV that blows current HD models out of the water. Inspiration at this year’s show was limitless.
There was also no shortage of fitness and health innovations. For hi tech fitness buffs, data is king, and being connected was the theme of this year’s show. Fitness brands showed off wireless data collection, sharing and tracking, then integrated the exercise information with the products we’re already using during our workouts, like smartphones.

The Life Fitness team is hitting the floor of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this morning, learning all about the hottest fitness technologies and showing off our new open platform products.
Two influential developers in the fitness app industry, Runtastic and Wahoo Fitness, will be giving demonstrations of their app’s functionality, improvements and integration with Life Fitness products in their CES booths.
We’ve shipped Discover series treadmills with tablet consoles to Vegas so that show-goers can experience real-time updates of their workout statistics on Runtastic and Wahoo Fitness apps. Life Fitness is the first and only fitness equipment manufacturer to offer products with an open API. That means any fitness app developer in the world can access a portion of our code to create apps that work with our equipment.
