Testing conducted by Intertek, the world's largest independent testing, inspection and certification firm, shows Life Fitness as the most energy-efficient fitness manufacturer compared to leading competitors. Test results confirmed that it costs a facility an average of 44 percent less to power Life Fitness Treadmills over those of leading competitors' machines. For the typical fitness facility this could mean that powering 20 Life Fitness treadmills over four years could add up to $12,000 in savings compared, to powering top competitors' treadmills.

Intertek conducted an analysis of Life Fitness Treadmills against Technogym, Star Trac and Precor treadmills. The test concluded that Life Fitness treadmills cost a facility on average 52 percent less to power than Technogym; 40 percent less than Precor; and 37 percent less than Star Trac treadmills.

“Sometimes being green is more about using efficient products than it is about sending energy back into the utility grid,” said Bob Quast, vice president of brand management for Life Fitness. “Each of our products undergoes extensive testing in our reliability and quality labs so that our customers can be confident that their equipment is effective and efficient.”

The Intertek test was based on energy consumption of a treadmill running at 3.5, 5.0, 7.0, and 9.0 mph by a 220-pound user.
