Who Manufacturers LifeFitness Ellipticals?

General Information:A division of Brunswick Corp, Lifefitness is the 800 lb. gorilla in the commercial market and is known for the famous club Lifecycle stationary cycle made around 40 years ago. These are typically well designed products but are overpriced and we have had consumer complaints about quality on the consumer line. Lifefitness simply isn't competitive with other brands like Landice, Precor, and True in regard to quality and value.

Manufacturing Philosophy:Their philosophy seems to be to engineer the product well and then price accordingly. Post warranty parts are expensive but with the new warranties, they won't be needed for a long time. People usually equate the name with the club machines but unless you are buying one of their club models for the home and you are a serious runner, you will like True, Precor or Landice much better.

Company Outlook : Lifefitness dominates the commercial equipment market and has always had plenty of horsepower in the marketing side of the business. Their industrial design is always sleek, if not complex, which helps them use components that wouldn't work in an average design. We expect Life to be around for a long time to come and they are a huge fitness company.
