The 91Xi is built to provide a challenging workout—supporting speeds of up to 14.3 mph—while keeping the user as comfortable as possible, featuring large non-slip pedals and handlebars for easy stability. It also doesn’t lack for workout options, with 25 levels of resistance and 16 built-in workout programs. The user can also add variety to their workout by pedaling backwards.
The red LED alphanumeric interface, which offers 4 language options, can display a variety of information to keep the user informed and motivated, including distance covered, elapsed time, speed, calories burned, calorie consumption per hour, and heart rate. The Life Fitness 91Xi tracks heart rate using LifePulse hand sensors that are integrated into the handrests, though users can also use compatible wireless sensors.
The integrated accessory rack allows users to easily stow their gear while they workout, with room to spare for a smartphone, book, or other source of entertainment. Owners can also install an optional LCD TV display accessory.
The Life Fitness 91Xi is designed to take the use and abuse typical of a 24 hour gym, with a heavy steel frame and weight capacity of up to 350 pounds. However, the integrated transport wheels and lack of need to plug it in allows it to be easily moved around as needed, making it a good choice even for small spas and home gyms.
