How long will the LifeFitness Platinum Club Series last?

Built from steel, the Life Fitness Platinum Club Series Elliptical weighs an epic 459 lbs. and holds up to a massive 400 lbs. of workout capacity. It is built for moderate to heavy use and will last several years with proper care and maintenance. Life Fitness covers the Platinum Club Elliptical with lifetime on the frame, 3 years on electrical and all mechanical components, and 1 year on labor. Even wiping down and unplugging after use will increase the life of this machine.

Brief Overview

The Life Fitness Platinum Club Series Elliptical is a hoss of a workout machine that is over 7-foot in length and requires a dedicated workout space in either a commercial or residential environment. It is incredibly durable and covered with a generous lifetime frame warranty that will provide years of high-intensity exercise for a vast majority of fitness enthusiasts. The Platinum Club Elliptical is the perfect blend of functionality and technology and while not necessarily affordable, is a solid investment for those looking to add a quality elliptical machine to their workout regime.

Overall Quality

The Life Fitness Platinum Club Series is a rear drive elliptical that provides silent and smooth performance between 25 high intensity levels of resistance. A fixed 20” stride length keeps users of most heights benefiting from the elliptical exercise motion on oversized pedals that provide a non-slip surface during exercise fun. The moving handlebars offer multiple grip positions to target alternate upper body extremities while stationary handlebars capture and transmit heartrate data to a 16” touchscreen that dominates the console. The SE3 HD console has both wired and Wi-Fi internet connections and allows users to stream videos, trek through interactive courses, and integrate with 3rd party fitness apps for hours of motivation during exercise sessions. Those that wear their lives on their wrists will enjoy the compatibility with both the Apple and Samsung galaxy watches.
