While exercisers often seek new ways to get the most out of their workouts, operators want to do the same with their investments; introducing Life Fitness Connect, a free-to-download mobile app for Apple and Android devices designed to help members maximise their experience using Life Fitness and Cybex equipment.

Designed specifically around the needs of the user, Life Fitness Connect is easy to use and requires no training or setup. It connects to equipment via NFC, RFID, Bluetooth or QR codes, while the in-app scanner allows exercisers to scan QR codes on Life Fitness equipment to log in or see videos explaining correct technique, alternative exercises, and workout options.

Its advanced workout tracking capabilities allow users to sync the data with compatible wearables and heart rate monitors to track workouts in one place, while access to on-demand classes helps exercisers stay motivated on and off Life Fitness and Cybex equipment.

“Consumers want variety in their fitness routines, with access to compelling and personalised classes and seamless connectivity that allows them to take their workouts anywhere,” says Dan Wille, global vice president of marketing and product development at Life Fitness.

“With Life Fitness Connect, we’re bringing the workout to the exerciser – whether in the gym or at home – with easy-to-use tracking features that sync with equipment and wearables and a large library of on-demand and audio coaching classes to keep workouts fresh and exciting,” he says.

To get the most out of their workouts, premium subscribers can also choose from a range of Life Fitness On Demand studio-style classes and adaptive audio coaching classes. Built with PEAR, the app’s premium adaptive audio coaching classes utilise heart rate-based training and users’ biometric data to adjust workout cues in real-time. Users also have the option of adding custom music playlists or select symbiotic music from the app during any workout.

Get Started with Life Fitness Connect

● On-demand and adaptive audio coaching classes are available as a premium subscription service for £5.99 per month

● New users can claim a free 14-day trial with access to premium on-demand classes by downloading and registering for the app
