How long will the LifeFitness Run CX last?

The LifeFitness Run CX treadmill has a streamlined design with a creditable weight of 341 lbs. and has been built to hold a max capacity of 400 lbs. The durability of this treadmill is backed up by a lifetime frame and LifeSpring shock absorbers warranty, a 10-year drive motor, 7 years parts, 3 years console, and 1 year labor warranty. Proper maintenance will extend the life of this machine, but light to moderate users should have numerous years of workout delight with this treadmill. With its 6 and a ½ foot frame it needs a dedicated workout area in your home gym as it does not fold to save space.

Brief Overview

The LifeFitness Run CX treadmill has mixed technology and functionality into a commendable blend of fitness fun. Not only does it offer technological compatibilities but also the performance users would expect in a gym certified treadmill. This treadmill offers a level of quality you would expect from a company who has spent decades revolutionizing the fitness world.

Overall Quality

The LifeFitness Run CX treadmill is available only with the ‘Track Connect’ console and has 15 preloaded workouts and 12 custom workouts that can be shared between 4 user profiles. LifeFitness has gone out of the way to keep the tablet holder at an eye-pleasing level that does not distract or cover the information projected by the performance display. By enabling Bluetooth on your streaming device, you can push exercise data to partner apps or tune into an immersive workout experience with connection to the LFconnect app. In a bid to stay competitive, LifeFitness has equipped the Run CX with quite a few premium attributes. Users can bound with delight on the ample 22” x 60” running surface that allows taller users the room to lengthen their strides. A 3.0 HP motor keeps moderate users performing quality cardio exercises with speeds of up to 12 MPH. Serious runners who plan on continuous indoor training should investigate motors made for constant heavier use. The incline on the Run CX remains semi-aggressive with a 15% incline designed to maximize workouts for lower body extremities. Ergonomic handles capture heartrate information with a keypad in between for convenient changes in speed and incline.
