Proform Studio Bike Pro 22 Review
Overall Score 9.9
The new Studio Bike Pro 22 from Proform is a definite buy for those looking to add the convenience of live classes to their home workouts. The 22” HD Screen on top of a performance driven spin cycle is spectacular.
This bike comes with on-demand LiveCast™ classes in HD high definition on a 22” smart touchscreen so you can work out on your own schedule. You don’t have to go and fight for a spot in your local spin studio. You will have your own space in an energetic studio right from your own home. You follow professional trainers as they lead you through cycling and cross-training exercises. They keep you motivated as you work out on and off the bike ─ live or on-demand classes.
The Studio Bike Pro takes your ride up a notch with automatic incline and decline with a unique 20% incline to 20% decline capability that gives you a realistic, real-road feeling. The Studio Bike Pro automatically inclines or declines to match the grade of the terrain from your iFIt Coach Google maps workout. You will burn way more calories by cycling at an incline.
You can top off your training by adding upper-body strength moves. Two 3-pound dumbbells are included with the Studio Bike Pro 22. The live class incorporates full body cross fit exercises so you get an overall workout.
