The top of the line LifeSpan E3i Elliptical Trainer is Lifespan’s best Elliptical Cross Trainer. The E3i model is a high quality elliptical with CoreBalance Technology, and is ideal for your home gym and for fitness enthusiasts of any skill level who want a low impact workout. The new CoreBalance Technology will let you know how much effort you are putting into each foot (output on the LCD screen), so as to balance out your workout, and point out imbalances to prevent injury. The LifeSpan E3i Elliptical Trainer provides an effective cardiovascular workout by combining upper and lower body flexibility and coordination into one impact-free motion and is easier on your joints. Regular use on elliptical trainers will increase heart and lung capacity while improving your health and burning calories.

The E3i uses 20 levels of Magnetic ECB (Eddy Current Brake) resistance. ECB Magnetic technology has the advantage of no friction, reliability, little to no maintenance costs, and very quiet operation. ECB is usually only found on higher end elliptical trainers and is the best form of resistance for these machines. This model has a heavier, 34 lb. flywheel which provides for smoother strides than other elliptical machines. The LifeSpan E3i’s power incline feature, increases resistance even more while targeting a different core group of muscles. You simply press a button to raise or lower the incline ramp with 20 levels of incline.
