  8. Since the Life Fitness Ride CX has a light flywheel, it is a bit easier to use when you first start pedaling and getting the flywheel moving. Lighter flywheels like this one are considered to be gentler on the joints because it takes less effort to move the flywheel. This bike and the ones from Sole all feel smooth when you use them though. It is really when you first get on and start pedaling that you can notice a difference in the flywheel weights. Once you get the flywheels moving and start adding and changing the resistance on all of these bikes, they all feel stable. I don't really notice a difference in the flywheels once I start adding on resistance and continue pedaling. The biggest difference between the Life Fitness Ride CX versus Sole's bikes is the placement of the flywheel. Since the Ride CX has a rear flywheel it is less prone to corrosion, because it is less likely to get sweat and water on it while you're using it. The Ride CX doesn't necessarily put you in more of an aerodynamic position than the Sole, but the drop handlebars on the Ride CX could help encourage more of that positioning since they offer a lower grip option. All of these bikes' handles go up plenty high enough for our tallest reviewer who is 6'5" to get a comfortable bike fit.
  9. We aren't aware if new models of these treadmills will be coming out this year, or not. We have both of the current models and we highly recommend them both. The 7.8 AT is great for interval training because the motor adjusts the speed and inclines quickly. The cushioning is also a little softer than the F85. The F85 has a heavier weight capacity and the option to stream from apps like Netflix on the screen, rather than having to use your own device to stream like on the 7.8 AT. Feel free to let us know if you have any more questions about these models, so that we might be able to help you make a choice between the two.
  10. After reviewing and trying out the LifeFitness CX bike and Sole cycling bike what or how does the difference in a lighter flywheel feel using added resistance on both? Also does the Life Fitness bike put you in more of a aerodynamic position than the Sole?How high will the handle bars go up?(max)
  11. As the title says, I'm interested in the Horizon 7.8AT or the Sole F85. Do you know when this year's models of them are coming out? Thanks!
  12. I have to reach a bit further on the IC4. The Sole SB700's saddle adjusts a little bit more forward than the Schwinn IC4 bike. So, the IC3 might have a similar adjustment range to the IC4, but I can't say for sure since I haven't been on it.
  13. Do you have to reach further to the handle bars with the Schwinn Ic4 bike compared to the Sole sb700??
  14. Unfortunately, we don't have the Schwinn IC3 bike in our studio, but when I use the Sole SB700 I have the handles just about all the way back towards the seat and the seat back a few notches. I'm about 5'1". There are only a few bikes that have too far of a reach for me but they all have touch screens and only up/down adjustability in the handlebars. Both of these bikes however have 4 adjustment points, the seat and handles adjust up/down, and forward/back, which is better for fitting a wider range of users.
  15. I apologize, I completely forgot to add links to our reviews of these treadmills. Here's the Assault Runner Elite, NordicTrack 2450, Sole F80, and Horizon 7.8AT. Here's also the NordicTrack 1750, Sole F63, and Horizon T101. We are updating the reviews for both of the NordicTrack treadmills to include the new 2022 models, so these are the 2021 models still FYI. Hopefully, this gives you a bit more information about each of these treadmills.
  16. Flat-belt manual treadmills are much smaller than curved-belt manual treadmills and are meant for walking only. They do save a lot of space, and most have a deck that folds up, plus they're typically a lot lighter than curved-belt treadmills and they can be quieter too. They are however significantly cheaper, so you won't be getting the same level of quality as a curved-belt manual treadmill. You could check out the Stamina Inmotion T900 Treadmill and there are a number of manual treadmills from Sunny Health & Fitness that all offer different features. Just forewarning that if you're hoping for a treadmill like the Woodway, you'll probably find these options underwhelming. Some of the quietest motorized treadmills we've tested are the NordicTrack 2450, NordicTrack 1750, the Sole F80, Sole F63, the Horizon 7.8 AT, and Horizon T101. All of these treadmills have worked really well for us, and we haven't had problems with any of these brands' customer service. The NordicTrack Treadmills have the softest cushioning for shock absorption, while the Sole treadmills feel firmer to use but still provide good shock absorption. The Horizon Treadmills' cushioning is in between these other treadmills. It feels soft underfoot, just not quite as soft as NordicTrack. The treadmills from Sole and Horizon have simple LCD consoles that come with preprogrammed workouts, while the NordicTrack treadmills include attached touch screens and are enabled with the interactive training program, iFit. iFit requires a monthly subscription to access the full library of guided workouts. You don't need iFit to use either the NordicTrack 2450 or the 1750 though. All of these models should handle the level of use you're looking to do, well. Although you'll probably get a bit more use out of the higher-end options from each of these brands, which are the NordicTrack 2450, Sole F80, and Horizon 7.8 AT. All of these treadmills fold up when they're not in use and have incline options. The NordicTrack treadmills also decline. Please let me know if you have any more questions!
  17. I can’t really tell by the videos available on their site but can you tell which one would not be so far of a reach from the seat to handle bars even after bringing them to the closest adjustment?
  18. It would be great to make a video showing the traditional back squat and the front squat.
  19. I'm not well-versed in which treadmills are good and which ones aren't. The important factors for me are durability, quietness, good shock absorption, and good customer service by the company. Based on the above factors, will you please share your recommendations for the Flat-belt manual treadmill as well as a couple of motorized options? I think that having the full picture will help me to make a better decision. I'll look into the Assault Runner Elite that you've mentioned. Thank you in advance for your help.
  20. Thanks for this information. Since you're comfortable with walking on a curved manual treadmill, then I would recommend the AssaultRunner Elite. It is lighter than the Trueform Trainer so it will most likely be a lot easier to get upstairs. We haven't tested the Trueform Trainer so we can't speak to its durability, but the AssaultRunner Elite in our experience is extremely durable and should handle that level of use with ease. We've never had any issues with Assault's customer service either. Before knowing how comfortable you are with using a curved manual treadmill, I was going to recommend some flat-belt manual treadmills but they're much smaller and don't sound like something you're looking for. With whichever curved manual treadmill you decide to go with, I would highly suggest placing a mat underneath it and placing it on carpet, if you're able. Both of these should help absorb some of the sound from the treadmill.
  21. Both of these bikes are great options. I would say if you want to clip into the pedals, the Schwinn IC3 has hybrid pedals to either clip in or strap into the toe cages, so I would go with that one. If you don't want to clip in and want a bike with a more extensive warranty, then go with the Sole SB700, it has a lifetime warranty for the frame.
  22. For someone who is not interested in a magnetic resistance bike which one would you recommend??
  23. When using the manual mode on the Nordic Track S22i bike what should a typical total mile or speed that I should be aiming for?
  24. I've used the Woodway Curved treadmill at my former gym (Pre-Covid Pandemic). I'm very comfortable walking on the curved treadmill. I will be walking 5 x per week on this treadmill for approximately 30-45 minutes per session. The Woodway Curve treadmill I used seemed rather quiet. I'm open to other suggestions on models but I was very set on the manual treadmill. I'm looking forward to your suggestions. Thank you in advance.
  25. Hi, thanks for your question. When starting a workout regimen, we strongly encourage folks to consult with their healthcare provider prior to starting. There are some treadmills on the market that are great for walking and I would look into one with front and side handles, as well as soft cushioning. You might also want to look into stationary bikes like recumbent bikes. These offer a lower-impact activity than walking on a treadmill, which might be better for joint pain. Since you're wanting to build up strength in your legs, a stationary bike could help too, since they primarily work your legs. For starting out, definitely start slow and listen to your body. For using either type of machine, you don't want to overdo it. I would start with a length of time and pace that feels doable and then gradually work up from there. If you're interested in a treadmill or stationary bike, let us know and we can help suggest specific models.
  26. Thanks for your question. Most treadmills from Sole and Horizon come with included chest strap heart rate monitors. These are meant to be worn against your skin for accurate readings. The treadmills also have built-in heart rate programs, too for heart rate training. I can suggest a specific model with some more information. How are you planning on using your treadmill? Do you want one for walking and/or running? How often and how long were you hoping to use it? What kind of space do you have for it? Do you need one that has a folding deck to save space? Do you want extra entertainment in addition to the onboard workouts? Treadmills from NordicTrack and ProForm also utilize heart rate training in their fitness subscription iFit which has guided workouts with a virtual trainer. These treadmills use an armband heart rate monitor, but it is sold separately. In our testing, we've found all of these brands that I've mentioned to be reliable and they make solid treadmills.
  27. There are certainly a lot of great treadmills for walking on the market. With some more information, I can recommend a specific model or two. How much space do you have for the treadmill? Do you need one that folds up, or stores out of the way, or do you have a designated space for it? How often were you planning on using the treadmill? Would you like one with a touch screen attached and some entertainment, like guided walks? Or are you looking for one with a more straightforward console?
  28. Treadmills aren't low impact because jogging/running is a high-impact exercise. However, treadmills usually have some level of cushioning built into the deck to help absorb the impact that comes with running and jogging. There are treadmills that feel softer underfoot than others. NordicTrack has some of the softest cushioning on treadmills we've tested. What are you hoping to do with your treadmill? How often are you hoping to use it? With a bit more information, I can suggest a specific model that has a high level of cushioning.
