WhisperStride™ and Link6™ Technology
Using a self-aligning ball bearings system, The LifeFitness X5 Cross Trainer”s WhisperStride™ and Link6™ technology provides you with synchronized upper- and lower-body movement. WhisperStride™ technology not only gives you the most natural stride, but also has been proven to be the quietest cross trainer in the industry.
To obtain more natural-feeling strides, The LifeFitness X5 Cross Trainer uses SelectStride™ technology allowing you to manually adjust the stride length between 18” and 24”. This technology is great for accommodating multi-user households and providing workout variety.
FlexPedal™ Shock Absorption System
Patented LifeSpring™ technology that’s found in all Life Fitness treadmills has been integrated into the structure of The LifeFitness X5 Cross Trainer. By placing two LifeSprings directly under the foot pedals, you’re provided with more cushion than the typical cross trainer.
The LifeFitness X5 Cross Trainer Go Console's CoachZone feature offers additional guidance during customized workouts such as GluteToner™ and ArmToner™. CoachZone simulates an in-home personal trainer feeling as the programs include backwards pedaling, resulting in a more comfortable workout and reducing that numb-toe sensation that is typical from pedaling forward on cross trainers for a length of time.
Frame and Pedals
The LifeFitness X5 is created with a free-floating elliptical design. The 1.75” distance between the pedals is the closest spacing in the industry. The combination of these two features reduces the amount of lateral shifting of the hips that typically occurs during workouts on cross trainers.
I'm very, very happy with our new X5. We've been on the fence for getting a commercial grade elliptical for our home, but my husband and I did the math and it pays itself off vs our dual gym memberships. At the same time, we get a unit all to OURSELVES in the comfort of our home... aaaaaand no more make-up just to go to the gym!! Men will simply never understand why I cackle when I get on this unit in my sweatpants and morning hair, hehe!
Would have gave a 5 star, because Mark(?) was so nice on the phone and we love the unit, but it took about 10 days to deliver and I was impatient to get this unit. We would have had the unit sooner but the installers got our delivery mixed up, but Mark was apologetic and even sent a card afterward. Very nice touch. Thanks from Denver!
