The Livestrong LS15.0E elliptical is currently Livestrong's top model, but still comes in at an affordable $1500. Key stability features like the 30 pound flywheel keep things running smoothly.
A 7" HD touchscreen on the Livestrong LS15.0E elliptical lets you keep track of your progress on the Livetrack™ fitness journal. Eight programs offer you several workout options, including manual, fat burning, target heart rate, fitness test and various training options from interval training to targeted glute workouts.
The features of the Livestrong LS15.0E include:
Reviews consistently take note of the Livestrong LS15.0E elliptical's quality parts and easy assembly, due in part to Livestrong's focus on engineering and craftsmanship.
The SixStar Certification frame, designed by biomechanical experts to properly align your body and give you a natural stride, gets high marks from users for the natural feel and core body support.
The quick, one-touch adjustment capability of incline and resistance are also features that are frequently noted in online reviews. Reviews point out that the gel foot pedals minimize foot strain so that you can exercise longer and get optimal results.
The rare complaints focus on the motor, which can be a bit noisier than others at this price point, but admittedly performs well.
Livestrong is a respected name in ellipticals these days because every purchase price contributes to a cancer research organization, but even if this doesn't move you, the high quality parts will impress you.
The company has responded to consumer requests by installing an energy saving motor and electronics that will keep the cost of operation down and reduce power usage, an indication of its dedication to producing machines that meet and surpass today's consumer expectations.
A total of eight programs and twenty incline levels give you variety and work all the major muscle groups, including the upper body thanks to the removable upper arms. Gel footpads are arched to activate core muscles. The Polar HR wireless monitor is included for users who are serious about hitting their target heart rate.
The flywheel of the Livestrong LS15.0E elliptical weighs an impressive 30 pounds, giving users one of the smoothest feels possible in this price range. We also like the 7" console, which allows individuals to receive customized feedback. We could wish for a few more program options, but with so many incline options, you get plenty of workout variations.
