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.

How many times have you started a new workout routine in January and fell off the wagon by the end of February? It happens to a lot of people when goals are unrealistic or plans aren’t well thought out. Get focused this year and use these tips to create a workout plan to stick to.
Create a weekly schedule. Long term goals are great, but it’s also important to break it down into weekly expectations. Write down a weekly workout plan and schedule it into your calendar like any other meeting. When planning workouts, remember that the Center for Disease Control recommends 150 minutes of cardio exercise per week. Split that into five, 30-minute sessions or maybe 15 minutes Monday-Thursday and an hour on Saturdays and Sundays. Make it work for you. Add in two strength sessions per week and you’ll be meeting the exercise requirements for a healthy body.
