A smooth stepping motion and 26 different speeds make the PowerMill ideal for exercisers who prefer slow climbs or those looking for one of the most challenging and intense cardio workouts at the gym. The large step space and anti toe-pinch design ensure secure footing during everything from high-intensity to moderate workouts. And a reliable AC motor ensures consistent motion during all of them. Fitness facilities have several console options, ranging from simple and intuitive to entertainment rich and engaging.
Powered by a motor, the Life Fitness PowerMill has one of the widest range of speeds available on a climber. Most other climbers have generators which control the speed of the steps but require a certain amount of force to get moving. This force largely comes from the bodyweight of the exerciser and keeps lighter users from being able to achieve higher speeds because they simply don’t have enough weight. The motor driven PowerMill does not have this issue, making the entire range of speeds available to users regardless of their weight.
Speed adjustments can be found on any of the consoles available on the PowerMill. Advanced consoles have more advanced adjustments. The Discover SE3HD and ST consoles have arrows for speed adjustments as well as keypads for entering desired speed. This can be accessed by touching the speed number displayed on the console. X and C consoles simply have arrow for adjustment.
