Overall Rating for Life Fitness 95xi Ellipticals


The 95xi is a remanufactured elliptical from a top brand. It boasts excellent ergonomics and offers plenty of workout variety.

The drawback of this machine is its short warranty. Although Life Fitness machines are known for their durability, customers would probably feel safer buying a machine with a longer warranty. Some options include the Life Fitness X8 and Precor ellipticals.
