The 2 Week Diet

Product Features:

  • SixStar Certified Frame: Alongside its sister companies in the Johnson Health Tech group, Livestrong fitness is a SixStar Certified company, and follows through on the required certification elements for ellipticals: pedal placement, body posture, access, handlebar spacing, foot path, and smoothness.  These allow users a natural elliptical movement and prevents knee injuries and uneccesary joint pains.
  • Drive System and Flywheel: The Livestrong® LS8.0E Elliptical uses a front-drive system complemented with a 23-pound flywheel.
  • Resistance and Incline: This machine has 16 levels of magnetic resistance. Users can manually adjust incline levels (0 to 100 percent) in up to 5 positions.
  • Programs: The LS8.0E has nine (9) built-in programs: manual, weight loss, muscle toner, strength builder, constant watts, Mellow Johnny’s Trail, Lance’s Climb, and two custom programs.
  • Heart Rate: Users can monitor their heart rate through sensors in the contact grips.
  • Stride Length: This elliptical has an ample stride length of 20 inches.
  • Console: The LS 8.0E’s large user control panel has three yellow-green LED feedback windows, SonicSurround speakers, and a COOLFit personal fan. Users can track time, resistance levels, distance, and the like. It also has quick start and quick resistance keys for convenience.
  • Measurements: This elliptical has the following dimensions: 24 inches (width) by 67 inches (height) by 76 inches (diameter).
  • Weight and User Weight Capacity: The machine weighs 192 pounds. It also has a maximum user weight capacity of 300 pounds.


  • Natural Elliptical Movement: The LS 8.0E stands by its SixStar certification as it provides its users the much-needed comfort and safety, without compromising the quality and challenge in the workout itself.
  • Space and Storage: This elliptical does not take up a big workout footprint, and it also comes with transport wheels for easy storage and moving.
  • Heavy Flywheel: The 23-pound flywheel perfectly complements the LS 8.0E’s sturdy frame, as both provides consistent resistance.
  • Value-Add: One of the reasons why this model is quite popular is its value-added features at such an affordable price. Other machines would well go above a thousand dollars while sporting almost the same features and quality seen in the LS 8.0E.


  • As in most exercise machines, both the speaker and personal fan are not of stellar quality, since not many users make a big deal out of these add-ons.
  • The LS 8.0E does not have a power incline. Hence, users have to step off the machine to adjust incline levels. This may be a consideration for users who prefer varying inclines while working out.
