A Low Impact Total-Body Workout

e1-elliptical-crosstrainer-go-lLife Fitness produces some of the best machines in the industry.  The E1 Elliptical combines smooth and natural motion with durability.  It’s also extremely quiet!  Life Fitness is well known in the fitness industry for creating extremely high quality machines.  The company’s focus is on great ergonomic design and lasting components. Machines from Life Fitness will not have many fancy bells and whistles but you can be sure they’ll last.

They often come at a pretty penny, so we urge you to consider your budget.  Sometimes you can get similar specs from companies like NordicTrack or ProForm for much less money.

e1-elliptical_consoleFeatures on the Life Fitness E1 Elliptical

The Life Fitness E1 Elliptical Cross Trainer comes with a choice of two console designs.  The Go console is a basic LCD display with stats arranged on one window.  The Track+ Console display is compatible with Android and Apple devices.  The E1 Elliptical comes with a 20″ stride length that will work for most people.  It also has a near silent Whisper Stride.  The machine is incredibly stable with a weight of 211 lbs and is rated to carry a user up to 400 lbs.  It is a rear drive machine that provides a more natural and smooth elliptical motion.

Things We Like:

  • We like that you are given the choice of two different console designs for this machine.  It lets you choose which level of technology you’d like and how much you’d like to spend.
  • The E1 comes with three choices for the warranty.  You can choose between the standard warranty, the 3 year extended package and the 5 year extended package.
  • The Whisper Stride on this machine is pretty cool.  It’s an almost silent machine!

Things We Don’t Like:

  • We wish that this machine had adjustable stride lengths.  Yes, the 20″ stride will work well for  many users,  but it’s nice to adjust the stride according to the user’s height.
  • This is a rear-drive machine so it can  be a bit more difficult to mount for users with balance or mobility issues.

Life Fitness is a good fit for you if…

You want a quality machine with great components.

You don’t mind spending a little bit extra.

You just want a quality workout without fancy virtual features.
