New Energy-Efficient “Track” and “Go” Consoles Offer Customization Features to Motivate and Entertain Consumers
SCHILLER PARK, Ill., November 3, 2011 – Life Fitness, the global leader in commercial fitness equipment, announces a line of new consumer cardio equipment featuring two new console options, Track and Go. This new product line-up is designed to answer consumer demand for greater fitness tracking and entertainment features. Also energy-efficient, the consoles are now available on 10 Life Fitness consumer equipment models and include a variety of advanced technology features like iPod®/iPhone® docking stations, family fitness customization features and Virtual Trainerconnectivity.
“As consumers look for ways to enhance their workouts, Life Fitness will continue to develop new and innovative fitness product offerings,” said Dan Wille, Life Fitness vice president, global marketing, product, and business development. “The Track and Go Consoles not only provide a great workout experience, but also one that can be customized to the individual, allowing them to get exactly what they need from the machine and ultimately their workout.”
Outfitted with an iPod/iPhone docking station that provides seamless controls for song selection and volume, the sleekly designed Track Console offers the best in entertainment and fitness programming. With the Track Console, users can create up to four customized user profiles allowing the whole family to experience quicker set-up, access individual workout statistics and have the ability to save three custom workouts per person. The HeartSync feature enables the machines to monitor a user’s heart rate and adjust the workout resistance level to keep the exerciser performing within their target heart rate zone. Users can also create an unlimited number of customized workouts via the Life Fitness Virtual Trainer website and app, which allow consumers to follow personalized workouts, track their number of cumulative burned calories, and share both cardio and strength results with Facebook friends. Workout programs and results can be transferred from the machine using the on-console USB port or through the free Virtual Trainer app available for the iPhone® or iPod touch®.
The Go Console is a simplified choice for users who are seeking the fundamentals of a great workout. Its user profiles and motivating variety features give users the option to create up to two customized workouts or choose from 13 different preprogrammed workouts including three classic, two advanced, three goal-based and five HeartSync controlled workouts. And just like the Track Console, Go allows users to monitor their heart rate through wireless telemetry readings and offers Energy Saver functionality designed to lower energy use by up to 90 percent when the unit is turned on but not in use.
The new Track and Go Consoles are available now on Life Fitness’ T3 and F3 Treadmills, X1, X3, X5 and X8 Cross-Trainers, C1 and C3 Upright Bikes and R1 and R3 Recumbent Bike models and will be sold online at LifeFitness.com beginning October 31, 2011.
