Shipping and installation

  • Customers can track shipment of their Life Fitness orders online and will be notified when the equipment reaches the installer.
  • Life Fitness does offer expedited shipping (which will typically cut the delivery time in half), but at a cost.
  • Illinois residents can pick up their Life Fitness orders for a $50 fee rather than have them delivered, but this is not recommended, as the equipment is bulky and very heavy. Customers who choose to pick up their orders are responsible for loading, transportation, and assembly.
  • Life Fitness includes a white-glove delivery service in the installation cost of its ellipticals, assuring a seamless and hassle-free process. The installer will call to schedule a time to assemble and install your new equipment and clean up any excess material—free of charge.


  • You may cancel your order for a full refund if you cancel before your product ships. If you cancel your order after it ships, your order is subject to a 20% restocking fee.
  • If you want to return your elliptical, call Life Fitness to discuss your return options within 30 days of delivery to arrange a pick up.
  • A 25% or maximum of $500 per piece of equipment restocking fee will apply to returns of non-defective equipment.
  • If there’s a defect that makes your equipment inoperable, Life Fitness technicians will order and replace the parts under warranty with no cost to you.

Life Fitness elliptical warranty

Life Fitness provides a consumer warranty for those who purchase one of their products. For most of its major equipment, Life Fitness has three different tiers:

Standard is free and comes with a 5-year parts warranty, a 3-year console, and a 1-year labor warranty.

The three-year extended protection is $199 and extends the standard 1-year labor warranty to a 3-year total parts and labor protection.

The five-year premium extends the standard 1-year labor and 3-year console warranty to a 5-year total parts and labor protection.

Note that Life Fitness does not honor warranties for their products sold through unauthorized third-party retailers.
