About the Products
The Life Fitness T5-0 treadmill has been popular in the market since its introduction in 2005. Easy controls make a workout simple to navigate, while the machine’s quiet performance makes it perfect for the home environment. Additionally, the patented FlexDeckÂ® shock absorption system reduces impact on joints by nearly 30 percent compared to ordinary treadmills or hard outdoor running surfaces.
Life Fitness’ superior biomechanics support comfort and fit with SelectStrideâ„¢ technology on its elliptical cross-trainers. The X5 allows you to adjust the stride length for different-sized users in the household or to target different muscle groups. The X8 features electronic stride adjustmentâ€”with just the touch of a button, users can change the stride length on-the-fly to target different leg muscles.
The Life Fitness X5 and X8 elliptical cross-trainers incorporate the same shock absorption technology that makes Life Fitness treadmills the best in the world. The FlexPedalTM shock absorption system provides flexible cushioning to increase foot comfort during workouts.
