The Life Fitness Lifecycle 93Ci Upright Bike is one of the latest offerings from a company whose name is synonymous with quality fitness equipment. Comfort is never an issue with this particular stationary bicycle, which features the patented Comfort Curve Plus Seat. The easy-up seat is ergonomically designed to promote the most optimal riding posture, and the over 2 dozen micro-adjustments it boasts enable users to raise or lower the seat to perfectly accommodate their height and size. The bike features two sets of handlebars—one front-facing set and another on either side of the wide, comfy seat. Both sets of handlebars are equipped with the proprietary LifePulse digital heart monitors—a touch based heart rate monitoring system that helps users stay in their target heart rate zone throughout the workout.
The Life Fitness Lifecycle 93Ci Upright Bike comes equipped with 20 pre-set workouts and a handful of fully customizable regimens. Among the many pre-programmed, expertly-designed workout options are an Air Force and Navy PRT fitness test; an interval training mode; several dedicated hill courses, each with different levels of resistance; themed workouts such as the Mount Kilimanjaro, Around the World and Cascades courses; an Extreme heart rate workout; a random setting (a setting that mixes and matches elements from each of the other workouts); a speed training ride; a fat-burning mode; a cardio program, which offers a pulse-pounding aerobic style workout; a “Time in Zone” program, which focuses on the target heart rate; a Quick Start and a Manual function; and a warm-up and cool down phase for beginning and wrapping up the workout.
The LED console on the Life Fitness Lifecycle 93Ci Upright Bike keeps track of—and provides readouts for—each of the above workouts, displaying stats like heart rate, distance, calories burned, altitude climbed and elapsed time. The console can also be upgraded to pair with a wide range of digital devices (tablets and smart phones), essentially transforming it into a one-stop center for fitness and entertainment
