The Life Fitness X5 is one of four rear-drive elliptical cross-trainers designed for users seeking a total-body workout from the convenience of their home. As an upgrade from the weaker X1 and X3 models, more advanced X5 adds SelectStride technology, in which users can adjust the stride length to better accommodate different-sized users. Like its peers, the unit is available with a basic console or an advanced one that supports HeartSync heart-rate control workout programs that automatically adjust the resistance to ensure the user maintains his or her optimal heart rate. All other features are inherited, included a built-in reading rack, dual accessory trays, and a maximum weight load of 350 lbs.

Additional Information

All Life Fitness ellipticals can be obtained with either a Basic Workout Console or an Advanced Workout console. The basic one includes 5 workout programs and a basic heart-rate readout (not available on the X1). The Advanced console, on the other hand, incorporates 10 workout programs, a wireless heart rate chest strap, Heart Rate control, 2 user profiles, 2 custom workouts, and a race mode.
