Fitness equipment leader syncs with popular digital health coach app
Rosemont, Ill., Oct. 28, 2014 – Life Fitness, global leader in fitness equipment manufacturing, today announced that the more than 65 million users of the popular MyFitnessPal app can sync with Life Fitness exercise equipment to track their calories burned while using the machines. Exercisers can now connect their free Life Fitness LFconnect account to their MyFitnessPal account.
This new integration allows MyFitnessPal users to accurately track calories burned during workouts on Life Fitness equipment by automatically transferring their data into the MyFitnessPal app. Life Fitness boasts accurate calories burned measurements based on height, weight and workout intensity, meaning app users no longer have to guess how many calories they have burned, or manually enter data into the app.
“Our partnership with MyFitnessPal is a natural fit,” said Amad Amin, senior product manager of technology at Life Fitness. “As one of the top 10 health and fitness apps, MyFitnessPal provides an easy-to-use digital solution that helps users get and stay fit. We have the same goal at Life Fitness, and as the forerunner in fitness equipment technology solutions, our partnership with this leading app lets us equip exercisers with intuitive tools to track their health and fitness goals.”
The collaboration with MyFitnessPal further expands the Life Fitness portfolio of sync-able health and fitness apps, which is made possible through the Android-based LFopen™ platform, the fitness industry’s first truly open API (Application Programming Interface).
