The Life Fitness equipment located in the downstairs Fitness Center and the Precor equipment located in the Preva Room each have free apps available to assist and enhance your workout experience.  If you’re an avid user of either of these lines of equipment we would highly recommend these useful tools and if you tend to shy away from this new equipment, the app may be the simple kick starter that opens your eyes to a new workout experience.  Read on to learn more about the functionality of each app and how a simple download can revolutionize your workout.

LFconnect for Life Fitness Equipment

The LFconnect app allows Apple and Android devices to interact with our Life Fitness cardio and strength equipment in the downstairs Fitness Center.  The app tracks workouts, lets you access personalized workouts, provides motivation and serves as an in-workout display on cardio equipment.[youtube id=”xgmivaHi6dk” width=”600″ height=”300″]

You are instantly recognized when you connect to a Discover console with the LFconnect app.  It’s as easy as scanning the QR Code on the machine!  This provides real-time tracking and gives exercisers immediate access to personalized workouts created at  Factors like speed (treadmill only) and incline/resistance, chosen during workout creation, automatically adjust on the treadmill during a custom workout.

In-Workout Display

A smartphone can be used as a secondary display for workout feedback so that you can use the Life Fitness console screen solely for entertainment.  When the devices is switched to landscape view the LFconnect app automatically switches to an in-workout display that includes three distinct dials that show workout duration, speed and your choice of heart rate, duration, distance, incline/level, distance climbed, Watts or calories.

LFconnect 2Strength Tracking

You can track strength workouts with the LFconnect app simply by scanning the QR code.  Each LF code decal is affixed to a specific equipment station and when scanned provides:

  • Accurate calorie calculation based on your weight, workout duration and intensity level
  • Recommended machine set-up based on details about the exerciser
  • Convenient tracking of sets, repetitions and weight amounts
