Product Description

Product Description

No matter how hard you push yourself on the X3, the Whisper Stride technology keeps things remarkably quiet while delivering a smooth, fluid motion. Warranty - Frame: Lifetime - Parts: 3 Years - Labor: 1 Year

Amazon.com

Enjoy a total body workout without venturing off to the gym day after day with the Life Fitness X3 elliptical cross trainer. Life Fitness trainers are recognized by health club operators across the country for their smooth, natural performance. Whereas other elliptical machines often deliver an uneven resistance transfer--producing an uncomfortable, choppy feeling that interrupts the rhythm of your workout--the X3's WhisperStride technology keeps things remarkably quiet while producing a smooth, fluid motion, a must for low-impact workouts. In addition, the X3 works hard to keep you engaged and focused while you exercise. The advanced workout console offers a host of challenging workout programs, including sport-specific training or interactive heart rate monitoring using the Lifepulse digital hand sensors or Polar wireless chest strap. You can also save the name, age, weight, and workout preferences for multiple users in your household, or create custom workouts for each user.



The X3 includes an advanced workout console with interactive heart rate monitoring.
The X3 accommodates users of all shapes and sizes thanks to its oversized pedals, which ensure that no matter how big, small, wide, or narrow your feet are, you can still expect the same club-quality experience. The pedals are also optimally spaced to minimize the lateral hip shifting that could put stress on your lower back. Best of all, the X3 disperses the efforts throughout both your legs and arms, helping your burn more calories with less perceived exertion. Other features include an ErgoGrip stationary handlebar that provides stability during lower-body-only workouts, an oversized dual accessory tray with a built-in reading rack, a 300-pound capacity, a 20-inch stride length, and an easy-to-read LCD display that tracks your distance, speed, calories burned, level, time, heart rate, target heart rate, METs, and watts. Equipped with a welded steel frame, the X3 measures 65 by 62 by 27 inches (W x H x D), weighs 205 pounds, and carries the following warranties: lifetime on the frame, three years on parts, and one year on labor.

The panel now just beeps erratically and the buttons do not respond.
Glenn Honiball
Everything else is basically the same as the unit I own, which is a good thing--the X3 is a very nice machine overall.
Some Guy on Amazon
They initially sent a replacement console, but that did not solve the problem.

We bought this at a local store because they had a great rebate and let us take one home on the spot. I recommend trying several different brands and models to find which one you like. We tried the Nautilus 2000, several of the Life Fitness models and a Precor. The Precor elliptical was nice with the adjustable incline, but required more use of your ankles and knees because of it. I was looking for a good aerobic workout with smooth motions and found it with the Life Fitness.

The Nautilus 2000 would have been fine, too, however their company stability is a bit shaky right now. Also their customer service has been rated poorly.

Life Fitness is a solid company with a great product. My parents have had the X3 for 9 years and it's still going strong. Our new X3 has the advanced console, quite a step up from 9 years ago. It's super smooth, very quiet, easy on your joints and has a full range of options from manual to a variety of preprogrammed modes.

The advantages of it over the X1 would be: covered pinch points in the back (only important if you have small children), bearings instead of bushings, making long term maintenance easier, and cushioned footpads on the X3. With the rebate the prices of the two got very close together so we went with the X3.

I'm looking forward to a lot of years with this unit. We were advised that most ellipticals should last you between 8-12 years. With the free 5 yr warranty we got that should get us most of the way there. If you find a deal on amazon, great. If not, try negotiating with your local fitness store for either a price break, or free warranty, free mat, or all of the above. There is room to wiggle on price for many of them.

We also got 24 month 0% financing. I advise that also as this unit isn't cheap.

Overall this is a really nice, well-rounded, reliable machine.

Disclaimer about my experience with the X3:

I actually own the previous generation of the model being offered here by Amazon. However, the only major differences between the two are that the present model has an updated, more informative control panel, as well as heart rate monitors mounted on its handle grips. Everything else is basically the same as the unit I own, which is a good thing--the X3 is a very nice machine overall.

Basics:

The X3 is smooth, quiet, and stable (mostly owing to the X3's eddy current resistance system, which is very solid and very heavy).

The X3 has a pretty good variety of programs:

- Manual
- Hill
- Random
- EZ Incline/Resistance
- Sport Training
- Time-Based Goal
- Distance-Based Goal
- Fat Burn
- Cardio
- Heart Rate Hill(tm)
- Heart Rate Interval Extreme Heart Rate(tm)
- Extreme Heart Rate(tm)
- Goal Workouts
- Custom
- Quick Start
- Race Mode

An X3 feature that I really like is its heart rate control system. It comes with built-in heart rate hand-grip monitors (they're on the little "handlebar" setup just below the control panel, not on the swing arm grips), as well as a wireless heart rate monitor system (complete w/ chest strap). The wireless system is pretty flexible to third-party equipment as well, so if you have a HR monitor that you like and prefer to use that, it should work with the X3. I actually misplaced my original Life Fitness heart rate monitor chest strap, so I had to buy a replacement Nike monitor, which has worked flawlessly with my X3.

We purchased our machine a few years back. It is easy to use, easy on the knees and hips and probably one of the best pieces of exercise equipment we have ever bought over the past 25 years we have been in our home. We still use it for exercise on a regular basis and not to hang our clothes on as with previous pieces of exercise equipment. We would highly recommend it for anyone looking to get off the couch and get some exercise without the expense and hassle of going to gym.

I have owned the Life Fitness x3-5 / x35 for several years now.
The machine has worked fine, aside from the magnetic brake failing after every 100 uses roughly.

I'm on my third brake now. This was not a cheap machine (over two grand). I thought that by paying up, I would gotten a higher quality, longer lasting product.
This is not the case with these "home models". Unless you like $300 repair bills every year, I'd look for a better machine.
LifeFitness had nothing to offer to try and ease the pain of these repeated brake motor failings. So I ended up replacing the last motor myself, and in the process damaged the brake motor which then also had to be replaced, though fortunately I had a spare from the last repair visit. But replacing these items was a real pain in the you know what.

I will never buy another Life Fitness product again.
