Lower models of Life Fitness cross-trainers are sold with a choice of classic and advanced consoles. The Club Series Elliptical is topped with just one option, which is iPod-compatible and has plenty of workout programming. The menu includes Quick Start and Manual, 17 diverse preset programs, and seven user-designed programs.
Pressing the Quick Start button is the fastest way to begin an elliptical workout. When you press this button a constant-level workout begins. The intensity level will stay constant unless you manually make changes.
The preset workout programs are expertly designed. One example is the Fat Burn program. This is a low intensity workout designed to make your body burn a higher percentage of calories from fat. To use this program, wear a wireless heart rate transmitter. (A chest strap is included with the elliptical.) The program will use your pulse info to maintain a challenge level of 65% of your theoretical maximum heart rate. Another neat workout is called Around the World. This unique interval training program features hill climbs that mimic famous topography. Other workout programs on the Club Series Elliptical are named Cardio, Cascades, Random, Hill, Foothills, Kilamanjaro, Interval, Speed Training, Sport Training, EZ Resistance, Heart Rate Hill, Heart Rate Interval, Extreme Heart Rate, Lower Body Workout and Total Body Workout.
Additionally there’s the Life Fitness Fitness Test. This program estimates your cardiovascular fitness and can help you assess your progress if used every four to six weeks.
