If you’re a seasoned indoor cycle pro who thinks you’ve seen it all when it comes to biking workouts, then this bike review is for you. The exceptional team at Freemotion® has once again transformed the face of workout equipment with the release of the CoachBike™. This game-changing exercise bike is integrated with iFIT®—the global leader in interactive fitness that provides a fully immersive cardio experience unlike anything you’ve tried so far.
Your Personal Workout Coach With iFIT
As the name implies, the Freemotion CoachBike’s™ most definitive feature is its coach-led workouts. Whatever your preferred workout style is, there’s a large range of different workout coaches, including professional athletes, with different training styles to choose from. Once you find the perfect coach for you, you’re on your way to achieving your fitness goals.
Truly Immersive Experience
What sets the CoachBike™ apart from other interactive fitness equipment is the lengths to which the designers have gone to deliver a genuinely immersive, coach-led workout experience that goes way beyond merely pedaling along with a coach on your touchscreen.
The bike features a 22-inch, HD interactive touchscreen display and offers high-quality stereo sound via Bluetooth® connection or the 3.5mm audio out jack. The feature that sends this bike over the edge, however, is the auto-adjusting technology that synchronizes with iFIT. In other words, the bike’s resistance, incline, and decline all change in sync with the remote coach’s commands––leaving your workouts to be completely seamless and responsive to your workouts without skipping a beat.
Though your bike’s adjustments are handled for you by your coach, you can take over control anytime during your workout should you want to slow down or speed up. Once you’re comfortable and ready to follow your coach’s workout, simply choose the selection to follow the workout again. Plain and simple!
Speaking of remote coaches, CoachBike™ allows you to seamlessly connect with thousands of on-demand workouts led by carefully curated fitness experts from around the globe. iFIT features sought-after fitness coaches from all around the world and from all different backgrounds like professional athletes, world-renowned champions, professional cyclists, celebrity trainers, physical therapists, and many other coaches that offer their own style to workouts.
Endless Coach-Led Content
The always-expanding iFIT content library is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and users can search for and sort new workouts by trainer, intensity, duration, location, and training type among other filters. Regardless of your fitness level or motivation style, you’re sure to find something that works for you among the thousands of available programmed routines.
Although there are enough coach-led, personal workouts to keep anyone interested, there are also plenty of studio classes for people who enjoy the hype of a group environment. Join other iFIT members and let the coaches, and competition, inspire and motivate you.
Why not set up a little friendly competition with others on the leaderboard to add a little more excitement to your workouts.
The Coachbike™ has a feature that competitors don’t even come close to. Members are given access to thousands of stunning, high-definition videos of rides throughout different locations around the globe. Having been filmed in over 50 countries and on all seven continents and continuously being added to the iFIT platform, you can explore and train all at the same time. Ride through the villages of Turkey then bike through the colorful beaches in Chile all in the same day. How and when has that ever been possible, until now!
As you’re overcome with the beauties of the world, your bike’s incline and resistance will automatically adjust to match the terrain of your chosen workout all the while your iFIT coach describes the history and interesting facts about the location. This feature allows you to feel as if you were actually there riding with your coach in person. But be warned, you’ll be so engaged in your virtual surroundings that you might forget you’re even working out.
Experience a fascinating workout opportunity with a chance to complete famous races, like the Tour de France, without having to leave your home. Check out the famous course for free by signing up for the iFIT 30-Day Trial and see what past athletes and participants have accomplished, then try it out for yourself.
Because the CoachBike™ has integrated with iFIT and destination workouts doesn’t mean you’re limited to following your coach’s workout. Make your own path by utilizing Google Maps™ to map out your own riding trail. As a matter of fact, why not virtually train for an out-of-town race by riding the actual course.
Quality Construction And Design
The construction and design of Freemotion’s Coachbike™ does not disappoint. Its light-weight aluminum frame, Shimano pedaling dynamics, eddy current magnetic resistance, and Gates carbon GT belt drive system offers a smooth ride and maximum performance opportunity.
This bike can achieve up to 20% incline and -10% decline, plus 24 levels of resistance, so you can push yourself to your physical limits. Since the bike can reach these settings automatically, the virtual rides can offer truly grueling climbs and thrilling descents.
Designed For Performance And Comfort
No design detail was spared in terms of rider comfort and convenience. The seat, handlebars, and pedals can be adjusted to your liking, as well as featuring an ergonomic, padded saddle with fore and aft adjustments. The Coachbike™ also features 3-Speed Fan, or select the AutoBreeze™ feature, to enjoy a variable flow that responds to the cycling pace.
