We all know there is no shortage of fitness apps on the market, but very few successfully combine indoor and outdoor workout tracking. Today, we are happy to announce that the new Life Fitness LFconnect App, for both iOS and Android, does just that.
The app will serve as a compliment to lfconnect.com, which allows you to create custom workouts, set fitness goals and customize machine settings so that personalized options can be instantly accessed at the gym. Workouts tracked with the LFconnect app will be automatically synced to lfconnect.com, allowing you to monitor your progress over time.

Life Fitness X5 Cross-Trainer Elliptical - Exercise and fitness equipment reviews and ratingsOnly a few months after a collection of Life Fitness products were honored with FindTheBest.com's 2011 “Best Of” Awards, two new consoles for the cardio equipment came to market. In an effort to make the best even better, Life Fitness introduced the Track and Go consoles. These two console options are available on the X5 and X8 Elliptical Cross-Trainers, which were featured in the awards, as well as several of our treadmills and Lifecycle exercise bikes.
One of the coolest features on these consoles is the addition of the energy saver. Forty percent of a product’s lifetime energy consumption for typical consumer electronics occurs when the item is not even being used. Surprising…and costly. At Life Fitness, we call these “Energy Vampires”, because they suck energy without you knowing. The energy saver feature on the new Life Fitness consumer line of products reduces the energy consumption of your machine when in standby mode, by up to 90 percent. In 2013, energy saving components will be standard in Europe, and Life Fitness has been including this feature on all new home products since 2010.

We launched the Life Fitness Virtual Trainer website just over three years ago and today, the 100,000th user registered for the free online tool that tracks your workout progress and stores your profile information.
The Life Fitness Virtual Trainer keeps me on task with my workouts and the prompt to share results with Facebook is the extra motivation I need to run just a little bit further.
