BLIKKET RETTET MOT FREMTIDEN

Fitness apper og andre bærbare teknologiske «duppeditter» er bare begynnelsen på en eksplosjon av teknologiske løsninger i fitnessbransjen.

LF CONNECT APP

The LFconnect app allows Apple® and Android™ devices to interact with compatible Life Fitness equipment. It tracks progress, lets you access personalized workouts, provides motivation and engagement, and serves as an in-workout display on cardio equipment.

Interact with the equipment

You are instantly recognized when you connect to a Discover, Explore or Track+ Console with the LFconnect app on an Apple or Android device.

Connection provides workout tracking and gives you access to personalized workouts created at LFconnect.com. Factors like speed (treadmill only) and incline/resistance, chosen during workout creation, automatically adjust during a custom workout.

GPS
Track outdoor runs, walks or bike rides with the GPS on an Apple® or Android™ device. Calories burned, time, and distance all upload to LFconnect.com and the app’s results page after the workout.

Weekly workout goals
Set and monitor weekly goals for calories burned. The motivating calorie meter fills up as you get closer to the goal.

In-workout displays
A smartphone can be used as a secondary workout display so that you can use the Life Fitness console screen (Discover SE and SI only) solely for entertainment.

When the device is turned to landscape view, the LFconnect app switches to a display that includes three distinct dials showing duration, speed and the choice of heart rate, duration, distance, incline/level, distance climbed, Watts or calories.

Compatibel products

LFconnect enhances the digital experience on a wide range of Life Fitness cardio consoles in the gym and in your home.

Consoles

Third party apps
Dozens of popular fitness apps and wearable devices interact with Life Fitness products through the LFconnect app. A growing list of compatible apps keeps you engaged and helps you reach your fitness goals.

DESIGN

Great design eloquently solves a problem with intelligence and simplicity. We mesh design with engineering and make sure they work together according to what users want or need.
Industrial design is based largely on how users interact with the product, and intended to make products both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Industrial design is based largely on how users interact with the product, and intended to make products both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Compelling design

Observational research and examining other products in other industries provide answers on how to create products that create memborable experience for exercisers.

Thoughtful design

Aesthetic design doesn’t stand on its own. It requires a framework of functionality. Every detail is considered in order to design fitness equipment that is inviting to all users.

BIOMECHANICS

The largest dedicated biomechanics team in fitness studies how people and machines interact. The result is equipment that is inviting to all exercisers.

The science of biomechanics

Life Fitness began in-house biomechanics testing in 2000. Life Fitness was the first in the fitness industry to see the need for, and create, a biomechanics testing lab.

Biomechanic tests

A range of tests ensure that products move the way the human body is supposed to, and they they provide results.

Kinematic testing

Kinematics testing determines the way the body moves. Input from this testing has been essential when designing cardio equipment like cross-trainers that have an elliptical path that mimics natural running.

Pressure testing

Pressure analysis on the soles of the feet and the seat of Lifecycle bikes determines hot spots and ultimately enhances user comfort.

VO2 testing

VO2 testing measures how much oxygen exercisers metabolize, which can be converted into calorie burn. Extensive data across a wide variety of exercisers results in “calories burned” displays on Life Fitness equipment that are extremely accurate.

Electromyograms

Electromyograms measure the electrical activity in muscles and provide valuable insight into muscle engagement during exercise.

DIGITAL EXPERIENCE

Tech cycles change so fast and trends constantly evolve. Therefor it’s important to focus on innovation and research. That way its possible to reach new levels all the time.

The foundation of Life Fitness is based on technology

In 1968, Life Fitness created the Lifecycle exercise bike. It employed groundbreaking technology and was the first piece of electronic exercise equipment ever created. Over the next four decades, we’ve taken the steps needed to stay ahead of technology.

App partnership

Life Fitness equipment interacts with popular fitness apps to provide exercisers with the connection they expect.

Wearable integration

Through LFconnect.com, FitBit and Jawbone wearable tracking devices provide immediate and accurate results after workouts on select Life Fitness cardio equipment.

Effortless connection

Bluetooth compatibility connects exercisers to equipment for workout tracking, hands-free heart rate monitoring, and enhanced entertainment.

An eye to the future

Fitness apps and wearables are just the beginning of an explosion of fitness technology solutions. The Life Fitness technology team is constantly working to ensure that Life Fitness remains on the cutting edge.
