How long will the LifeFitness E1 Go last?

Designed with a sleek titanium color finish, the Life Fitness E1 Elliptical Cross Trainer weighs a brawny 211 lbs. when fully assembled and holds up to a mighty 400 lbs. of workout capacity. It is engineered for moderate use and will last more than a handful of years for a person looking to properly care for their investment. The E1 is covered with a generous lifetime warranty on the frame, 5 years on parts, 3 years on the console, and 1 year on labor.

Brief Overview

The Life Fitness E1 Elliptical Cross Trainer has a longer 82” length that needs it own personal space for optimal workout sessions. It offers a virtually silent operating technology and a sleek look that readily fits into any residential abode along with a substantial warranty offering, which translates into years of worry-free workouts. Consumers with higher credit scores will enjoy the pay by the month option offered at the time of purchase.

Overall Quality

The Life Fitness E1 has a GO console that is simple to use and presents several pertinent workout stats on 2 wide LCD displays that have a pleasing blue back lit screen. It contains 12 built in programs and can keep up with 2 individual profiles which is handy when living in a multi-user household. A hefty rear drive system ensures smooth operations between 20 levels of resistance for high- intensity workouts. Non-slip pedals are oversized for comfort and come with a 20” long stride length that is perfect for users of all but the tallest of heights and follow a natural trekking motion during exercise sessions. The moving handlebars are easy to grip and assist with upper body toning while the prominent set of stationary handlebars capture and transmit heartrate information.

The Life Fitness E1 with GO Console will last for years with proper care and comes with a stellar warranty offering from a reputable parent company. Though it is on the high end of the budget-friendly zone there are purchasing options for those looking to add this quality elliptical machine to their home gym. The lack of technology in the GO console is rather disheartening but those willing to invest a little more money can chose the TRACK CONNECT console option with added technological abilities.
