Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

I've used and owned a few different treadmills and so far this one is my favorite. Although it takes a few seconds to get it set up, its easy to input all of your information and get started. It has many different modes including fat burn, weight loss, hill, etc which I love but it also lets you put it in manual so you can choose what you feel like doing. It has a great range of inclines and speeds and keeps track of your distance and calories burned. So far I've only found 2 negatives and they're really not too bad compared to other treadmills. The first is that I cant figure out if you can store your info, so far I start over every time. Second is that when I'm in manual I'd like to just go and not have to worry, but it repeatedly asks me to check my heart rate, which can get really annoying. To take my heart rate I have to put my hands down on the sensors, which if I'm trying to relax, focus, or do something else at the same time makes things difficult.

Great treadmill

By 

from USA

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

I love this treadmill, it makes walking, jogging, and running indoors very easy and enjoyable. It runs very smoothly, has very many really great settings to let you get the most out of your workout. This treadmill also has some great safety features to help you stop immediately if you need to.

Performance
Wonderful performance, I'm on this treadmill all the time and never have any issues at all from it, it works so well, the belt moves smoothly, and all the neat settings work perfectly every time.

Comfort
Very comfortable treadmill to walk, jog, or run on not only does it have several different places to hold onto if you need to, but also the belt runs very smoothly so it's comfortable on your feet, and it's nice having the two large handles to your sides so it lets you know you're not going to go off to either side I like having that extra protection.

Ease of Use
This treadmill is very easy to use and pretty self explanatory, once you've used it even just a couple of times you feel like a pro, it's so simple.

Durability
Extremely durable, I'm on this treadmill all the time and it's absolutely wonderful, it has never had any types of issues at all, I would say this is one of the most durable one's out there.

Design
Great design, it's got great safety features, the placement of the handles are wonderful and the placement of the many different settings are just right as well. I wouldn't change anything about this treadmill at all.

Solid treadmill which helped me reach my goals!

By 

from USA

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

This treadmill doesn't shake when you run on it, and it feels completely solid and steady. I used this at my gym, and I was happy with the results. I never had any injuries due to impact, and I was able to easily keep track of my time elapsed and calories burned (these were the most important pieces of information for me).

Performance
I was able to perform better and push myself harder due to this equipment. It made me feel stronger and more steady because it didn't wobble around like some other treadmills do.

Comfort
I didn't have any issues associated with impact due to running (hard!) on this treadmill. I ran for an hour each day for a few months and found this machine to be extremely comfortable.

Ease of Use
This treadmill is extremely user friendly and easy to use. From the first time I used it, I never felt that there was even a learning curve where it became easier after a period of time- I felt comfortable with the machine as soon as I started using it.

Durability
This machine is extremely durable. It is in the gym I go to, and it is pounded on constantly by many people throughout the day, and it continues to be a sturdy piece of machinery.

Design
I think this machine has a sleek design and looks great. This is not the type of equipment you hang your clothes on-- you use it to get more fit. It works!

Use it all the time at the gym

By 

from Chesterton, IN

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

Life Fitness equipment can be pretty pricey but it works good. If you have the extra money to spend, then it is definitely worth it. When compared to cheaper treadmills this one blows them out of the water.

Some things I really like about this machine is that pretty much any wireless heart monitor will sync up to it. This is perfect if you are training for an event or just like to keep track of how hard you are working out. I also love that my ipod nano and touch plug right into it. I can listen to music while charging it and don't have to worry about it dying half way through my workout.

The programs are really easy to use and are self explanatory. You can program it to remember speeds and grades you like. This is unfortunately not an option to do at the gym when a hundred other people are using the machine that day.

The only thing I dislike about this machine is the magazine rack. From heavy use I see them broken ALL the time at the gym. It seems as though people grab and pull them when running or walking and one side breaks off. Just be mindful to not do this and I am sure it will be no problem.

Adequate treadmill

By 

from USA

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

I enjoy running and walking on this Life Fitness Club Series Treadmill because it is easy to use, and has helped me become a stronger runner. To begin you just select which running program you wish to use and once the treadmill starts you start running. As great as this treadmill is I wish this treadmill counted calories so I knew just how many calories I burn when I use this treadmill. I also wish this treadmill by Life Fitness contained a television to keep me more entertained and motivated to run longer. Despite some of its shortcomings I would still recommend this Life Fitness Club Treadmill to my friends.

Performance
Running on this treadmill by Life Fitness has helped me become a stronger runner.

Comfort
This Life Fitness Club Series Treadmill is comfortable to run on.

Ease of Use
Life Fitness Club Series has been very easy to use and I do not consider myself to be a seasoned runner.

Design
I like the design of this treadmill by Life Fitness but I wish it counted calories and contained a television to provide entertainment while running and walking.

Life Fitness Club Series is an excellent treadmill!

By 

from Fond Du Lac, WI

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

I have always hated going to the gym and running on a treadmill. It used to bore me, and I never felt satisfied because when you run outside you actually *go *somewhere. Since I live in the Midwest, however, I need to go to they gym in the winter to stay healthy. The Life Fitness Club Series treadmill has changed my attitude about the gym.

One thing I like about this treadmill is the different settings it offers. The "speed intervals" setting is easy to use and a great way to burn a lot of calories. "Hills" is another great setting to really test your endurance. With the "manual" setting, you can easily adjust the speed and incline to suit your workout needs.

Another thing I like about the Life Fitness Club Series treadmill is that it is relatively quiet. Some workout machines can be so noisy and clunky that you do not feel like using them.

The Life Fitness Club Series treadmill is also great for training for a run such as a half marathon or marathon because it is easy to adjust the speed and you can also use set speeds (6km/hour, for example) to train and have a good idea of how fast you will run the race.

First thing I go to at the gym

By 

from Oak Lawn, IL

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

I have had a gym membership for a few months, and when I go I always enjoy putting my ipod on and going running on this Life Fitness treadmill. It feels so good on my legs and joints. Other treadmills or running outside destroys my knees, but this treadmill is light feeling on my knees. I rarely get tired on this machine because I am not thinking about my knee pain constantly. This machine does not have a good fan, but I don't use those on other treadmills anyway. The cup holders are very large to hold your water bottles and keys. The adjustments to the inclination and speed are easy to press, but no too easy so you are going way too fast in a short amount of time. This treadmill has a few pre  set workouts like cardio, fat burn, or manual to get you started as soon as possible with your goals for weight loss, toning, or just staying in shape. I would recommend this treadmill to anyone if they are considering buying one.

Life Fitness is worth the club membership

By 

from Lenexa, KS

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

This is my favorite treadmill of all times and I have been through a few.  The Life Fitness Club Series is one of the styles we have at the gym I belong to.  At busy times the 15 treadmills are all being used.  If it is a running day for myself, I will run the track waiting for for a treadmill. 

This treadmill is better than the others because of the cushioned flooring.  It allows for a smooth run.  If you like a challenge it does incline quite high, however I have another favorite for the incline and walking.  This is just a great treadmill for smooth running or walking.  It has two cup holders on the sides that are easy to access and a nice pocket under the board to put keys or your phone.  We have televisions hooked up to ours and that makes the run so much more enjoyable. 

If you are looking into a gym membership I would highly recommend making sure they have Life Fitness treadmills.  Your feet will thank you.

I like this treadmill and when I go to the gym I wait for it.

By 

from Sierra Vista, AZ

Comments about Life Fitness Club Series:

I wouldn't say I've used every treadmill there is out there. But I can say I prefer this one. Other ones I've used even at gyms tend to wiggle when I run. It's kind of scary and it worries me about my knees. If I had to change anything it would be the cool down feather, when you press it, the belt slows to a very slow pace. I would have it go down more gradually.
