The LifeSpan R7000i Commercial Recumbent Bike has a long standard warranty, including five years of parts protection for residential buyers and two years for commercial gyms. Here are some reasons people choose this product.
- Sturdy Frame: The R7000i’s recumbent frame weighs about 140 pounds. It has a 400-pound user weight capacity.
- Console with Fitness Programs: This machine includes two programs that are controlled by heart rate. The console also has 17 workout programs grouped into categories: five for weight loss, five for healthy living and seven for sports training. These programs can be used with 16 resistance levels. Progress is shown on a colorful racetrack graphic.
- Media Holder: An integrated shelf can hold an iPad, Kindle or magazine.
- Exercise Data: Workout data are shown on the bike’s console, and users get more feedback than they would with a typical stationary bike. Additionally, the online LifeSpan Club can process health and exercise data from the bike’s USB drive or be synced wirelessly. This allows for advanced data processing and exercise planning. It also makes the machine’s estimate of calories burned more accurate.
- Heart Rate Monitoring: The LifeSpan R7000i includes contact grips on the arm rests. It has a wireless heart rate receiver too. (Chest strap sold separately.)
- Pedals: The pedals on the R7000i are oversized to let people reposition their feet. The pedals can be exchanged for other street bike and mountain bike pedals too.
- Adjustable Seat: The R7000i invites long workout sessions. It has a molded foam seat bottom and a flexible, ventilated seat back. The seat also features heart rate sensors, which are molded right into its soft armrests.
- Self-Generating Power: Commercial LifeSpan exercise bikes help facilities save on electricity costs. The R7000i makes the most of trainees’ energy, transferring it to the console! The R7000i can also power iPods and other devices via its USB port.
- Storage and Bottle Holder: A tray slightly behind the seat can hold a water bottle, keys and other small items. It might not be placed ideally, but it’s better than having no storage at all.
