Life Fitness Introduces the next move in Cardio Workouts

Life Fitness Introduces the next move in Cardio Workouts
April 5, 2015

Global commercial fitness equipment leader Life Fitness has introduced the Explore™ Console with the QuickNav™ Dial, an intuitive turn and push-button technology that provides a streamlined, contemporary interface for cardio machines.

Using the dial, exercisers can easily navigate the console by simply turning the dial and pushing to select the desired workout options. The Explore Console’s design allows gym owners to offer optimum ease-of-use cardio machines that can help increase membership and improve retention.

Explaining the innovation, Life Fitness  President Chris Clawson states “today’s exercisers demand intuitive, high-performance products that create an enjoyable workout experience.

“Life Fitness wants to ensure that facilities everywhere, no matter their scale, have access to premium equipment that will help them engage exercisers and grow their businesses.”

The Explore Console also comes equipped with Wireless Internet and Bluetooth® capabilities, providing users with access to the Life Fitness LFconnect™ app to track and customize their workouts or sync their favorite LFopen™-compatible fitness apps, including Fitbit, Jawbone and MyFitnessPal, to enhance workouts.

The connectivity of the Explore Console also enables facilities to manage assets and access powerful data on exerciser behavior and equipment use through, which can help guide business decisions, retain members and bolster the bottom line.

Additional Explore Console features include:

•Modern Design – Offers a sleek and appealing look
•Vivid 7” LCD – Allows for workout set up and provides detailed information during workouts


The Explore Console will be available on premium Elevation™ Series cardio equipment including treadmills, cross-trainers and Lifecycle® upright and recumbent bikes, PowerMill climbers and FlexStrider.

Life Fitness will be exhibiting on Stand R12 at the 2015 Australian Fitness & Health Expo, being held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 10th to 12th April.
