This entry was posted on November 13, 2014.
You live in a busy world, and you don’t always have time to target your workouts to one specific part of your body. If you want an efficient way to work your entire body with one simple machine, look no further than the Life Fitness X5 Elliptical trainer. This machine works your upper and lower body at the same time, spreading the effort of the exercise across legs and arms alike. This means you get more workout and more calories burned for the length of the workout you choose.
The X5 lets you tailor your workout to the needs of your body. The length of the machine’s stride can be adjusted between 18” and 24” for longer or shorter legs. The basic model comes with hand sensors to monitor your heart rate, or you can upgrade to the advanced console for a wireless heart rate monitor. The GluteToner and ArmTones workout enhancements allow you to adjust the workout to focus more on one part of your body if you wish or you can enjoy the benefits of the whole-body experience right away.
If you’re training for an event like the Louisiana Marathon, you know that endurance conditioning is of supreme importance. You should also know that impact-oriented exercises can cause a number of problems for your lower body and joints. Using a no-impact trainer like the X5 helps you build up stronger muscles and greater endurance with less stress on your joints, keeping you fit and ready for race day.
The staff at Fitness Expo will tell you without reservation that the Life Trainer X5 is a great elliptical machine for anyone looking to improve their physical conditioning and burn extra calories. They also are fully knowledgeable about the machines in their store, and they can help you get the most out of your X5 right away. They will show you how to determine your ideal stride length, how to take advantage of the heart monitoring system, and the proper body posture for using an elliptical.
