Life Fitness: Ultra premium cardio

Life Fitness has reimagined cardio with the launch of its Symbio line which has been designed with advanced biomechanics and offers deep levels of customisation


After more than 55 years shaping global fitness and a hard-earned reputation for setting standards in innovation and quality, Life Fitness has again created a new paradigm.

Symbio, its new line of ultra-premium cardio equipment, raises the bar for design and performance, giving exercisers an extra-personal dimension in their workouts.

We live in a world where one size no longer fits all. Members of gyms and health clubs increasingly expect training that connects with them as individuals, tailored to their own needs and preferences. Symbio was made to exceed those expectations by seamlessly blending aesthetics, quality and performance in a personalised, multi-sensory cardio experience.

As Life Fitness chief product officer Daniel Wille explains, “Symbio is the perfect manifestation of the human body and machine working together in harmony. Our biomechanics team engaged in countless hours of research into how the body interacts with our new technologies and the result is the ultimate multi-sensory workout experience, which is as unique as the individual exerciser.”

Reimagining style
Symbio’s luxurious contemporary looks have been created using research carried out in partnership with a European design company and are matched by prestigious performance and functionality. The aim, says Life Fitness, is to redefine how exercisers think about cardio.

“You’re immediately drawn in by the sleek, contemporary design and the LED smart lighting that provides a wow factor, as well as functionality,” says senior product manager Tracy Barrett.

The Symbio collection is already earning international accolades. The Symbio Runner was honoured in one of the world’s largest and most prestigious design competitions, the 2024 Red Dot Award: Product Design.

Reimagining knowledge
The Symbio concept has been built from the ground up on a deep foundation of research, along with direct interactions with thousands of exercisers around the globe. Both operators and exercisers want to go beyond existing console features to experience truly innovative workouts. Above all, they want personalisation: cardio products that deliver unique, tailored experiences to guide them on compelling personal fitness journeys.

Rigorous research also lies behind Symbio’s revolutionary biomechanical features. Here, Life Fitness firstly drew on its decades of experience in developing cutting-edge cardio equipment, then for Symbio, the company went even further, tasking its biomechanics and engineering teams with creating unmatched ergonomics, comfort and performance.

Reimagining fitness
Engaging with the equipment in the range, it is immediately obvious why Symbio’s slogan is ‘Fitness Reimagined’ and why it has more than 10 patent-pending features. The Symbio Runner, for example, has its patented Adaptive Flex Deck that allows exercisers to choose from five levels of deck firmness, increasing shock absorption for lower impact or increasing firmness for greater responsiveness. Interactive Terrains simulate different real-world surfaces, while Advanced Performance Metrics provide unique gait analysis and coaching, based on precision real-time sensors that capture every footfall.

Switch to the SwitchCycle and the standout features continue. The company that invented the original LifeCycle more than 50 years ago, now offers a revolutionary cycling experience in and out of the saddle, allowing the user access more than 100 resistance levels – plus immersive on-demand coaching – while enjoying the fluid ride.

For a more laid-back experience, in terms of position, though not workout intensity, the Recumbent Cycle is an ergonomic revelation. Easy to step onto, its on-screen seat and positioning guidance take the guesswork out of setting up.

Perhaps even more impressive is the Incline Elliptical, which – thanks to a patented incline mechanism – emulates the body’s natural running motion. Want to target a specific lower-body muscle group? The interactive Muscle Map allows users to add variety and reach their personal goals.

The new Symbio line demonstrates the ongoing commitment of Life Fitness to customer satisfaction, representing a culmination of the company’s deep experience and passion for innovation. With greater adaptability, better features and increased personalisation, Symbio truly brings body and machine together in movement to reimagine the cardio experience.
