Schwinn 170 Upright Bike
Now the stationary bikes I used in high school had no cool tech installed on them. You jut adjusted the seat, manually adjusted the resistance and pedaled away at 60 RPM’s. More if you have a friend next to you so you can race occasionally. Maybe check out a few bodies that walk on by. Other than that you just pedaled and sweat your way through 40 minutes of ultimate boredom.
The Schwinn 170 Upright Bike has in its arsenal 25 levels of resistance and 29 fitness programs to keep your workout fresh and motivating. Still bored?
Not with these bikes. Nope, boredom is no longer an issue. You have screens or iPads you can place on a media rack, virtual trainers can train you or can watch big screen TV’s, use wireless headphones, smartphones and VR sets.Yup. I did say VR or for those who are not familiar with the lingo…Virtual Reality Sets. Available for you is the Explore the World app which lets you explore any trail or road. You ever wanted to ride Pike’s Peak or how about the Tour de France. This bike also has a USB and MP3 ports for your devices which you can play through theinteral speakers. Ohh la la!
Schwinn quality and comfort are not only essential but built in. They have a solidly built frame and a comfortable contour seat. Now, that’s one thing I would have begged, borrowed and stole for.
I’m telling you that this bike has got the goods. And you should have the goods too. Capeesh? Good! Now. Getouttahere…
NordicTrack RW 900 Rower
I’ve used rowers in the gym but I never thought of owning one because of the huge footprint they take up in any house or room. And I wont own a cheap one that promotes portability because I am very wary of their build quality. But this one, Oh Mama, Oh mama. The NordicTrack RW 900 Rower is indeed a full size machine, but folds up to a smaller footprint that includes two front transport wheels. I dig it. Can you dig it?
There are two models available. The RW 200 and the RW 900 Rower. They seem idenical except for thing. The RW 900 comes with a 22″ HD Smart Touchscreen where the RW 200 has a more traditional display screen. I have decided to showcase the RW 900 because…It’s cooler to tell you about it…
This apparatus also comes with a 1 year membership to iFit. An interactive personal trainer that leads you on interactive global and studio workout programs. You can renew your iFit membership at yearly intervals.
26 resistance levels mimic real life water resistance. Workouts on the NordicTrack RW 900 Rower are customized to your goals and fitness levels and led by your virtual fitness coach.
I gotta say that this is one sexy looking machine. Their design team was on point when they created this beast. It’s booytiful man…
These showcased items are not the least expensive cardio equipment available to you, the average consumer. Every piece of equipment I showcase has at least a 4 out of 5 star rating and I always present name brand recognized equipment. I do this because of brand recognition is important and that these companies have a customer support process. Afterall a company either dies or perseveres on their reputation. So, I really hope you enjoyed my reviews and if you have any questions or comments you can leave them down below….So, there. 😉
