Delivering a remarkably pure, natural elliptical motion, the X5 provides a total body workout with synchronized upper- and lower-body movement that will help you burn more calories with less perceived exertion--even more than other lower-body only elliptical machines.

  • Random: Includes many different motivating combinations of hills and valleys.

HeartSync Heart Rate Controlled Workouts

  • Fat Burn: A great workout for beginners or for those days when you need a lighter workout. It automatically adjusts resistance to maintain your heart rate at 65 percent of your theoretical maximum.
  • Cardio: Maximizes caloric burn and boosts your energy level. It automatically adjusts resistance to maintain your heart rate at 80 percent of your theoretical maximum.

About Life Fitness
What started as one man's pursuit to improve his own physical condition, eventually turned into a global fitness revolution. That man was Keene P. Dimick, the mastermind behind the legendary Lifecycle® exercise bike. The story of Life Fitness began when two young entrepreneurs, Ray Wilson and Augie Nieto, saw the promise of Dr. Dimick’s invention. Even though it was slightly ahead of its time, they believed the Lifecycle exercise bike could help generations of athletes, trainers, exercisers, and people everywhere live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives.

Wilson and Nieto bought the rights to the Lifecycle bike from Dr. Dimick, perfected it, and sold it out of a motor home to health clubs across America. Despite the overwhelming odds and initial unpopularity of the Lifecycle exercise bike, the two passion-filled pioneers turned a two-man operation and a seemingly impossible vision into a prosperous reality. Along the way, they shaped the future of Life Fitness as well as the fitness industry, bringing cardiovascular training into the mainstream and helping ignite the health club boom.

Today, Life Fitness is the global leader in designing and manufacturing a full line of reliable, high quality fitness equipment for commercial and consumer use. It is the number one brand of fitness equipment in health clubs worldwide.

I noticed the grim evaluations of people with electrical and component problems, but my X5 has been running great.

I am fairly tall and heavy and my wife is shorter and much, much lighter, so this was a good solution for us. I also have painful knee problems from long-ago hockey, so striding is comparatively easy on me.

On the X5, you set the stride length manually before starting. The guy complaining about the X8 has a different machine costing $$$$ more which uses small electric motors to adjust the stride length while striding. Complaining about the failure of those X8 adjustment motors is just stupid. It's like have some silly rich guy with a $36,000 car that auto-parks complaining about the failure of that ridiculous feature while reviewing an entry model that costs only $14,000.

Does anybody need an X8? I doubt it. Afterall, when I ride my bikes, I don't feel a need for variable length cranks. I might adjust the seat height and fore-aft position during a stop on long rides, but that's all. Extreme adjustability offered by the X8 just seems like too much complexity.

Anyway, we're seeing excellent durability and performance on our X5 despite regular use. And the console features are just great. Much more fun than a treadmill, and far less pain to my knees.

ok - so it is a cool unit that works well and I like using it. The problem is that Life Fitness will only make repair parts for their new units for about 1 - 2 years and then they stop making replacement parts that everyone in the business knows will fail within 2-4 years. I am currently in this situation. I have a 2007 X5 that looks and works great except that the console unit has failed. You can't buy a new or used / refurbed console for this X5 anymore. If you do a search, you will find that there are a slew of other people out there that have the exact same issue (flaky console unit - beeps constantly, buttons don't work, etc). So we all have a great looking piece of iron in our living rooms that is completely useless and there is no way to repair it. I called all the folks that sell refurbished consoles (they are $500 and out of stock) and one told me that fitness equipment companies do this so that you have to go out and buy a new unit instead of repairing the old unit. Do a search on "Repairing My Life Fitness x5i Elliptical Console" and you will see all the folks out there that out there trying to find a solution.

Verified Purchase
Product came with packaging in good condition except for the box with the advanced console. That box was signficantly 'beat up' but on opening, the console appeared intact so proceeded to set up. The follow-up communications by Amazon once purchase made and until product delivered was amazing....GREAT customer service by Amazon. The X5 took about an hour and 2 people to put together but directions for set-up were clear and easy to follow. Saved me lots of cost for set-up. X5 is very quiet and smooth. I now can keep my TV in my exercise room at low volume while I work out (previously w/ treadmill volume had to be on 'max' and it was still hard to hear over the noise of treadmill) The Advanced Workouts Console is awesome as it gives me a wide variety of work-out programs and tracks my work-outs to help me easily see my improvement. I was worried about the length of the cross-trainer but in end was no longer than my treadmill. Overall very very satisfied with this purchase!

We bought a Life Fitness x7 february 2009. by december a cable had to be replaced because it was frayed causing stride malfunction. The repairman said it shouldn't happen again but pointed out that he wasn't redoing the placement of it, just replacing what was damaged. It was damaged because the design of it is wrong. He acknowledged and said he'd seen it many times before. I was skeptical for good reason. It's happened again and now we're out of warranty. Let's see how Life Fitness takes care of this. They should fix it for permanence and not charge us for their design flaw. Don't y'think? Otherwise, it's a nice machine. Why they cheaped out with this important, but small part, I don't understand.

I purchased the Life Fitness X8 Elliptical Cross Trainer with the advanced console seven weeks ago. The Whisper eStride technology boasts a remarkably quiet, fluid electronic stride. However, my machine made a grinding sound with perceptible vibration. It was not comfortable to use for 30 minutes.

The activity zone module stride length was a major factor for my purchase since it would allow me to vary the distance from 18" to 24" to target different lower body muscle groups. In less that two months, one of the motors malfunctioned and the machine cannot be used due to the disparate stride lengths. I cannot recommend Life Fitness due to the poor construction and unreliability.
