Life Fitness X5: The Ultimate Elliptical Cross-Trainer
This entry was posted on October 30, 2014.
When choosing the right elliptical cross-trainer, it is important to keep in mind all of the different features of the machine. With the Life Fitness X5, there is plenty to keep you occupied and provide the ultimate cardiovascular workout. Whether you are interested in simply burning calories or actually targeting specific muscle groups, this is the one machine that you must have.
While all ellipticals allow for working upper and lower bodies, the Life Fitness X5 provides a number of customization options simply not found anywhere else. For example, the SelectStride feature allows you to adjust the stride length. This makes it possible for every member of the family to use this single piece of equipment effectively. You may even want to make these adjustments in an effort to reach or target different muscle groups.
One of the most interesting features about this elliptical cross-trainer is that the design makes for an even lower impact workout. The foot pedals flex, making it more comfortable. Effort is dispersed to your legs and arms, which allows for increased calorie burning with less exertion.
The grip itself is very advanced. This stationary handlebar allows for increased stability during your lower body workouts.
Staying motivated is another very important factor to consider when working out (and choosing a machine). Fortunately, the Life Fitness X5 includes several advanced features to help. There are several trainer modes which literally guide and coach you through your workouts. This helps with both total-body and lower-body-only training programs.
Better yet, try the CoachZone feature. This provides you with targeted workouts for your arms, glutes, and other areas. All of these helps are designed to keep you motivated and on track to achieving your goals.
