SCHILLER PARK, Ill., Jan. 28, 2011 – Global leader in fitness equipment manufacturing, Life Fitness announces the Life Fitness Virtual Trainer smartphone app coming soon. The new app will sync with the popular Life Fitness Virtual Trainer Website (www.virtualtrainer.lifefitness.com) to enable exercisers to update workout results on both the website and mobile devices.

Fitness enthusiasts are using technology to boost their performance more today than ever before. Through the free app, users will be able to track workout progress on their smartphone and record both cardio and strength results. A library of additional training features will also be available as add-ons for purchase. Similar to the Life Fitness Virtual Trainer Website, exercisers will be able to access and download recommended Life Fitness programs, instantly from their device.

“Today, internet content is shaping the workout experience and new technology, like apps, further enhances a fitness program,” said Chris Clawson, president of Life Fitness. “This smartphone app is the natural next step for Life Fitness and will support our users by allowing them to maximize their workouts on our equipment.”

The Life Fitness Virtual Trainer Website has seen tremendous growth over the last year, with a 53 percent increase in use globally. Recently, with the just-announced Facebook compatibility, the Life Fitness Virtual Trainer saw daily visits to the site double.

When a user uploads a result to the Life Fitness Virtual Trainer Website, a “prompt” appears with the option to also post the update to that user's Facebook wall. By sharing their workout results, exercisers can receive motivation and encouragement from friends to help them achieve their health and fitness goals.

The anticipated smartphone app will allow for easier access to the popular fitness tracker, by enabling the Life Fitness Virtual Trainer Website to operate wirelessly.
