Life Fitness E3 Elliptical with Track Connect Console – Review

by on May 10th, 2017

The Conclusion

The Life Fitness E3 Connect is the middle of the road Life Fitness elliptical in terms of base and stability, and top of the line residential Life Fitness console. The smooth quiet feel gives the user a comfortable low impact cardiovascular workout. The Life Fitness “whisper stride” technology (maintenance free ball bearings), which reduces the amount of friction on the unit, in essence making for a relatively silent rotation of the pedals. Life Fitness includes cushioned foot pedals as well as a multi grip ergonomic handlebar design to fit multiple users for additional comfort during exercising.

An often-unnoticed benefit of the Life E3 is the low step up height, which allows for a lower ceiling height restriction compared to other elliptical models.

The connect console is also a nice upgrade from the more basic “go” option. The connect console is Bluetooth enabled, allowing the user to link data to apps such as the LFconnect, MyFitnessPal, AppleHealth and Jawbone, among other available apps. Unlike the go console, the Connect console offers a total of 16 workouts to go alongside the option of 12 custom workouts (compared to just 2 from the go), as well as 4 user profiles settings, compared to 2 from the go.

Although the unit is constructed well and has a heavier weight capacity (400lb max user), the stride length is limited to 20″; compared to the E5 (a step up), which offers an on-the-fly varied stride length between 18″-24″. The E3 also comes with a decent warranty which covers the frame for lifetime, the parts for 5 years, the console for 3 years, and one year of labor. Overall, I would recommend the Life Fitness E3 Connect.

Life Fitness X1 Elliptical Cross-Trainer with Basic Console

Life Fitness Row GX Trainer – Review

by on June 22nd, 2016

The Conclusion

Life Fitness has created a top of the line rowing machine with a very sleek, modern design which extends the GX family of cardiovascular products from its initial launch with the GX Indoor Cycle. Life Fitness has immediately improved the rowing category with the release of the GX Row Trainer because of its uncompromising performance, excellent design and style, and full-body cardiovascular training experience.

One of my favorite characteristics of the Life Fitness Row GX Trainer is the Fluid Resistance Technology to recreate the experience of rowing in water. It’s a very interesting experience to perform an exercise movement which originally was only done in the water, while in the comfort of your home or health club yet you can enjoy the sounds, resistance, and enjoy the true rowing
experience of the water.

I usually achieve my cardio exercise through sports, but I will be using the Row GX more with my workouts. It truly is a full-body workout. I love the simplicity of the machine, you can just get on and row, and achieve an excellent workout without any prior knowledge about how the machine works.

I felt relaxed while on the Row GX, and I was easy able to view my performance from the monitor. After my workout, I did not feel any joint pain or soreness because of the low impact nature of the movement.

The Row GX however lacks built in programs, requiring users to be fully creative versus giving them a sense of direction. The Row GX does not include a heart rate monitoring device. An optional tracking package is available but these options are not included with the price of the machine, and so there’s no way to monitor your heart rate unless you have your own device or purchase this tracking package. I prefer a heart rate device when using cardio exercise equipment, but you can easily use another device like an Apple Watch or Polar Heart Rate Strap and track your heart rate on your own.

Overall, I believe the Row GX provides a safe, effective, full-body cardiovascular workout and I would highly recommend this product to friends and family.
