How long will the LifeFitness Platinum Club Recumbent Lifecycle last?

The LifeFitness Platinum Club Series Recumbent Bike weighs a massive 214 lbs. and holds a whopping 400 lbs. of sweaty workout weight. It is built to last for many years and supports moderate to heavy use by users of many fitness levels. LifeFitness has seen fit to cover the Platinum Club Series with a generous lifetime frame warranty and a rather low 3 years on parts and 1 year on labor warranty.

Brief Overview

The LifeFitness Platinum Club Series Recumbent Bike is our 2022 1st place winner in the $4000 and up price range. It has commercial grade features, is manufactured by a reputable company with a 50 year history, and comes backed by a somewhat decent warranty. There are many quality elements built into the Platinum Club Series including technology and a touchscreen, making it an excellent investment for any facility or residential setting.

Overall Quality

The LifeFitness Platinum Club Series Recumbent Bike has a durable frame that is built for comfortable rides and easy mounting. Well padded, the seat fits most sizes and is adjustable in a horizontal manner for various leg lengths. The pedals are wide with adjustable straps to secure feet when encountering the higher intensities found in the 26 levels of resistance. Side handlebars contain both a heartrate monitor and resistance controls which is handier than a knob for transitions through various resistance levels while training. Both console choices of the Platinum Club Series come with a 16” touchscreen and the ability to stream entertainment apps or connect to fitness training apps through Bluetooth technology or a wired internet connection. Other conveniences include transport wheels on the front of the frame, an accessory tray, and an integrated reading rack.
