WHAT WE LOVE

Live Classes • 22” Smart HD touchscreen • 40° Incline Training

A Real Calorie Burner.  You can add strength-building by walking or running inclines. The X22i incline trainer has up to a 40° incline that will help you burn more calories.  The more you raise the incline, the more the session is focused on strength building not just a cardio work out.  The negative -6° decline will strengthen the muscles and joints that are not used when you’re running or walking on flat or incline options. - View X22i video clip illustrating this below

Your trainer will auto-adjust every setting to match your personalized workout or studio class bringing the excitement and motivation of a personal coach to your home.  Studio classes are specifically designed and available for the X22i.
