Freemotion Fitness, the global manufacturer of pioneering fitness equipment, has unveiled its ground-breaking CoachBike, a state-of-the-art, content-driven indoor bike that delivers a game-changing, interactive personal training experience for riders.
The CoachBike features tens-of-thousands of coach-led workouts that bring both high-intensity studio classes and outdoor cycling experiences to an indoor gym setting in a novel way, leading a new era of connected fitness.
The indoor cycling market is estimated to have surpassed $500 million and is expected to grow nearly 50 per cent more by 2024, according to a recent press release on MarketWatch. And with busy schedules, changes in lifestyle, and higher expectations of brands driving the boom in connected fitness, it means that more individuals are looking for new, fun, engaging, and efficient ways to work out, and the Freemotion CoachBike delivers on every aspect.
The CoachBike is the first piece to be released from Freemotion’s highly anticipated, content-driven cardio series, which will enter the US market in early 2020, then be rolled out globally in the summer.
Powered by iFit – the world’s only truly interactive connected fitness platform – the CoachBike is set to take indoor biking to the next level, creating new possibilities for riders. Featuring in-studio classes, customised Google Maps routes, and trainer-led workouts filmed globally – even providing the option to take part in famous events like the Tour de France – the CoachBike offers an unprecedented amount of choices that allow riders to take control of their workouts for the ultimate, personalised experience. This will continue to expand with the upcoming release of live workouts – adding yet another dimension to the CoachBike’s impressive and growing content offering.
A key feature of the CoachBike is its trailblazing, terrain-matching technology, which auto-adjusts the speed, incline, and resistance in sync with the instructor’s experience as the route is displayed on the spectacular 22-inch interactive HD touch screen. By accurately simulating the hill climbs and downward stretches of outdoor cycling, the CoachBike offers a unique, true-to-life experience while helping to maximise muscle activation.
Dan Toigo, Freemotion’s senior vice president and managing director, said: “At Freemotion, we live and breathe innovation each and every day. We’re always striving to create products and solutions that bring something new to the industry and offer an unparalleled user experience that adds value to a person’s workouts and genuinely has a positive impact on their life.”
Only available on the Freemotion CoachBike, users can choose from an expansive workout library to train with their favourite coach in exotic, breath-taking locations around the world - from the Alps to the historic streets of Florence - or join the hype of a studio class.
The CoachBike’s Google Maps integration is another feature that sets it apart from other indoor bikes currently on the market, enabling users to create and cycle their own routes anywhere in the world, with iFit auto-adjusting the incline/decline through the terrain-matching technology.
In addition to the CoachBike’s exciting technology, each element of its design has been carefully considered to provide riders with the ultimate “real feel” experience. By combining a built-in AutoBreeze fan, which automatically adjusts the flow to the rider’s pace, dual-sided pedals (SPD on one side and toe strap on the other), versatile handlebars (with convenient controls for resistance and incline), a 5:1 gear ratio, and a free-wheel design, the CoachBike delivers immersive, true-to-life workouts that keep riders engaged and wanting more.
Dan added: “A tremendous amount of product research, development, and testing has gone into the creation of the CoachBike, and we’re excited to share it with the world. The CoachBike is designed to fit in any setting, including hotel gyms, multi-housing gyms, corporate gyms, as well as small or boutique studios. I truly believe that the CoachBike and the entire content-driven series provide the best, most interactive, and immersive experience in the world.”
