Life Fitness expands equipment compatibility with popular fitness apps

Life Fitness expands equipment compatibility with popular fitness apps
May 28, 2015

Leading commercial fitness equipment manufacturer Life Fitness has recently updated its LFconnect app to sync with popular built-in fitness apps - Apple Health, Google Fit and Samsung S-Health - automatically transmitting data collected from our Life Fitness cardio equipment.

The update empowers millions of iPhone, Android users and exercisers who are already using their favourite app to monitor, track, and view their fitness and health activity with the reassurance that it’s receiving accurate and comprehensive data.

Explaining the compatibility, Amad Amin, Senior Product Manager for Technology and Analytics at Life Fitness states “today’s mobile devices already come with highly sophisticated health tracking apps - which only perform better when used in conjunction with LFconnect.

“Once paired with LFconnect, an exerciser will automatically have their workout information sent to their respective health apps, allowing for a complete representation of their cardio activity.”

LFconnect not only ‘pulls’ workout data, but ‘pushes’ it directly to Apple Health, Google Fit and Samsung S-Health. After completing a workout on Life Fitness equipment, exercisers can open the LFconnect app on their smartphone and scan the QR code displayed on connected Life Fitness cardio products.

Once synced with LFconnect, users will be able to track their calories, distance and heart rate from Life Fitness equipment.

Life Fitness was the first fitness equipment manufacturer to open its software API in 2012, allowing developers access so third parties can create applications that work directly with Life Fitness equipment. This unmatched access opens an entire world of possibilities for exercisers and facilities alike, including the ability for personal trainers to remotely access information and design specific workouts, or for facilities to create their own apps that offer rewards for achieving certain goals and metrics on Life Fitness equipment.

Amin adds “since creating the LFopen platform and launching the LFconnect mobile app, Life Fitness has continually released updates that enable integration and allow for greater personalisation and customisation.

“It’s a win-win for exercisers, as it enhances the data collected by other apps, while allowing each person to store and access their health data exactly how they prefer with minimal effort.”

Current LFconnect users need the latest update to gain access. For new users, the update is included after the initial download.
