LFconnect™ Website and iPod Integration

FlexDeck® Shock Absorption System
LifeFitness T3 Track Console Treadmill is composed of LifeSpring™ shock absorbers, which are used in Corvette suspensions and railcar bumpers. The patented LifeFitness T3 Treadmill's FlexDeck® System provides you with a more cushioned run. Unlike rubber and foam, these LifeSprings won’t break down over time as they’re created using polyurethane material, which allows the plastic to bend but not change form. With the extension sound testing conducted by Life Fitness, the T3 Treadmill functions with less noise than a typical treadmill.
LifeFitness T3 Treadmill with Track Console provides you with the durability consumers have come to know and trust from Life Fitness. The LifeFitness T3 Treadmill 's Track console features fully integrated iPod® connectivity, which allows you to play music from your iPod® or iPhone® on the Life Fitness equipment. The seamless connectivity technology gives you the control to adjust your music – song selection and volume – through the Track Console without interrupting your workout. The Track Console also has USB connectivity that allows you to easily transfer data to and from the unit. Having both iPhone® and USB connectivity, LifeFitness T3 Track Console allows you to utilize LFconnect™ workouts with ease. In addition to entertainment and motivation, the Track Console features the Energy Saver button, which lowers the unit’s energy consumption by 90% when turned on but not in use. On the Track Console, you are provided with up to four user profiles where you can create and save three customized workouts on each, making this console a great option for multi-user households. HeartSync™ provides you with five heart-rate controlled workouts that can be monitored through the hand sensors or the wireless chest strap. The workout options vary, however, through LFconnect™, your options are endless.
This feature, which is included with LifeFitness T3's Track Console, allows you to customize and create your own workouts, track your progress and share with friends directly on the LFconnect™ website. After you create your desired workout(s), you can then access them through the LFconnect™ App on your Android® or Apple® device. The LifeFitness T3 Track Console's LFconnect™ App also provides versatility as it can track both outdoor runs and strength training, so you never miss a beat no matter where you work out. Once your workout is complete, the LFconnect™ App will automatically save and update the website making it easy for you to both share with your LFconnect™ buddies and your personal Facebook account. Very similar to other fitness and social networking apps, the LFconnect™ App allows you to add buddies and create groups within the network. This provides transparency among users resulting in more motivation, support and advice along your fitness journey.
Breaking the mold in the fitness industry, LFopen™ is the first truly open platform. This feature allows 3rd party app integration through your Android® or Apple® device. Whether you’re home or in the gym, you can connect to the selection of apps and programs the LifeFitness T3 Track Console offers. Providing you with options separate from those on LFconnect™, LFopen™ gives you a multitude of simulated choices for each workout routine.
By utilizing a centered incline lift motor, the actuator provides balance to the system. This is not only less tension on you, but reduces break down on the unit.
I went with Life fitness because I like the "flex deck" they have. It is really like the story goes...not too hard-not too soft-but just right.
Lots of other features that a lot of other brands have as well, but the deck allows me to enjoy my run more and recover faster. In my 40's and it is not so easy anymore!
