How long will the LifeFitness Club Series + SL last?

Manufactured from stainless steel and aluminum, the LifeFitness Club Series + SL weighs a massive 434 lbs. when fully assembled and holds consumers up to a 400 lb. maximum capacity. The frame is long at 82 inches and covered by a stain, corrosion, and chemical resistant coating as an assurance to the longevity of this machine. The Club Series is backed by a lifetime frame and motor warranty as a testament to this treadmill lasting through many years of heavy-duty workouts by consumers of all fitness levels.

Brief Overview

The LifeFitness Club Series + SL Treadmill is our Second Place Best Buy Winner in the $6,000 to $9,999 price range and provides premium walking, running, and jogging to users all over the fitness spectrum. It is extremely durable and covered by superior warranties from the manufacturer. The Club series is a favorite among users and is a previous Best Buy Winner due to its quality components. Consumers will be happy to note that those with larger budgets have two other options besides the SL to choose from – the SE3 HD console and the new SE4 console. LifeFitness is a force to be reckoned with and has been manufacturing stellar fitness equipment since 1977.

Overall Quality

The LifeFitness Club Series + SL is a force to be reckoned with and can be found in local gyms and homes across the nation. It has two frame colors for aesthetic purposes as well as longer siderails for additional sturdiness. The Club Series has a 4.0 HP continuous duty motor enabling fluid operations at a 0.5 to 12 MPH speed smoothly performing on the larger 3.5” precision crowned steel rollers. Consumers of most sizes can comfortably stretch their legs on the 20” x 60” belt tread as they walk or sprint to better fitness health, or even climb considering the 15% gradient.
With the LifeFitness Club Series, the SL is the simple console choice, and it comes with a 20.5” LED display screen. There are quick speed buttons, numerous data readings, as well as 22 built-in programs for those looking to up their fitness game. Bluetooth capabilities allow fitness app pairing for those that track fitness data and there is an integrated rack to hold streaming devices. Last but certainly not least, LifeFitness covers the console with a 3-year warranty. Once again – those with larger budgets can choose between two other consoles – the SE3 and new SE4.
