Life Fitness Treadmill Reviews 2017

Life Fitness is well-known as a gym and health club fitness brand. They also have cardio equipment for home users. However, outside of the gym and club, it is not a brand that has gained much acclaim from home gym users. Part of the gym acclaim comes from Life Fitness’ original parent company, Bally Total Fitness. Life Fitness is now owned by the Brunswick Corporation.

Beyond the treadmills, Life Fitness also produces many other products, such as ellipticals, exercise bikes, rowers, home gyms, and other accessories.
