Get on your bike!

with the award winning IC7 indoor cycling bikes

As the saying goes.. ‘don’t reinvent the wheel’ but that’s exactly what’s happened and it’s very exciting!

Global brand Life Fitness has reinvented the exercise bike and has created an innovative range of indoor cycles powered by ICG® The award winning IC7 indoor cycling bikes are unlike any other with a unique Coach By Color® training system which delivers real-time, colour coded feedback to maximize the training experience, allowing you to reach your goals faster.

IC7 indoor cycling bikes are available to use in the China Fleet gym and they’re so easy to set up. Simply enter your sex, weight and fitness level. You can then choose to do a standard cycle or a FTP – where every 4 minutes you will be encouraged to add an extra level on your bike, this is where the Coach By Color® comes into play to show you if you are hitting your targets. You can download the ICG Training app via the App store or use the QR code on our gym equipment, to pair your phone via Bluetooth to the bike, and view, save and track workout history.

The new bikes are part of our £200,000 gym refurbishment which features revolutionary technology and equipment. All our cardiovascular equipment has been updated, along with our free weights too. World class equipment at your fingertips; new look, new machines, new equipment, new technology, all set to change the way you train!

For the true cycling enthusiast, the 2018 Tour of Britain, takes place from 2nd to 9th September which sees the world’s top riders cycle the 1,140-kilometre route from Pembrey Country Park on the Carmarthenshire coast in South Wales to the streets of Central London, via Devon, Bristol, Warwickshire, Cumbria and Nottinghamshire across eight stages of racing.

Personally, I’m more of an indoor cyclist so I’ll be taking advantage of our new bikes in the gym here at China Fleet. Maybe with lots of training I’ll make next year’s Tour of Britain?!
