The commercial model Life Fitness 91Xi cross trainer has been used in health clubs since its debut in March 2006 when it replaced the 91X total-body cross trainer. Along with the cool upgrades, the 91Xi offers the classical elliptical motion and smooth ride that fitness enthusiasts crave.
The dual-level alphanumeric LED console on the Life Fitness 91Xi cross trainer shows elapsed time, calories burned, calories/hour, Watts, METs, resistance level, distance, and workout profile. The 16 pre-set workouts include two Zone Training+™ workouts that automatically adjust resistance to keep you in the Target Heart Rate Zone. The user can select from up to 4 different languages.

The self-powered Life Fitness 91Xi Cross Trainer features Auto Start that allows the user to power the console as soon as he/she starts pedaling.
Other features include ergonomically correct moving arms, Classic Stride technology with 20" stride length, 2.8" pedal spacing, 25 resistance levels, on-the-fly programming, patented Lifepulse™ heart rate monitoring with DSP (Digital Signal Processing), an Eddy Current resistance brake system, and rear transport wheels for easy mobility.
Elliptical reviewers consider the Life Fitness 90 series to be among the best of the club quality machines. Not only are these machines valued for their solid ride and buttery smooth performance, they are often a first choice for advanced cardiovascular training purposes.
The Life Fitness 91X and 95X cross trainers offer a variety of programs including Cardio and Fat Burn interactive Zone Training+ heart rate workouts. The 8 interval workouts are Around the World, Cascades, Cross Train Aerobics, Cross Train Reverse, Foothills, Interval, Kilimanjaro, and Speed Training.
Take a closer look at the reconditioned Life Fitness 91Xi cross trainer for the low price of $2699, and you can check out the original model from the 90 Series, the Life Fitness 91X Elliptical Cross Trainer, which has an 18" stride length and few programs, for around $2399.
A used 91Xi will save you thousands of dollars over buying a new commercial model for home use. The machine is striped down to the frame, worn parts replaced with new parts, and everything is thoroughly cleaned, lubricated, and reconditioned it until it is good as new.
We suggest you go through a reputable Life Fitness equipment dealer to view their reconditioned model warranty information, as well as their 31-day money back guarantee.
