HEART RATE % PROFILE
Heart Rate training is proven to be one
of the best ways to measure your workout. Our Heart Rate % Profile gives
you a quick reference of your % compared to maximum projected heart
rate. The LED lights up in Amber for 50-60%, Green for 65% to 80%, and
Red for 85%+.
MUSCLE ACTIVATION PROFILE
It’s important to understand which muscle
groups are gaining the most benefit during your workout. On our fitness
bikes, you will be using your glute (bottom), hamstring (back of your
thigh), quad (thigh), and calf muscles. The LED lights will activate in
three degrees of engagement: Green represents minimal muscle
involvement, Amber for medium involvement, and Red, full or heavy
involvement. Use this quick reference to challenge yourself during your
MP3 AUDIO JACK & SPEAKERS
We know how important it is to be able to
enjoy your favorite music as you workout, so we included an MP3 audio
jack for you to plug in your choice of MP3 player or cell phone.

MAXIMUM USER WEIGHT
This program follows a triangle or
pyramid type of gradual progression from approximately 10% of maximum
effort (the level that you chose before starting this program) up to a
maximum effort which lasts for 10% of the total workout time, then a
gradual regression of resistance back to approximately 10% of maximum
This program follows a quick progression
up to the maximum resistance level (default or user input level) that is
sustained for 2/3 of the workout. This program will challenge your
ability to sustain your energy output for an extended period of time.
This program presents a quick progression
up to near maximum resistance level (default or user input level). It
has slight fluctuations up and down to allow your heart rate to elevate,
and then recover repeatedly, before beginning a quick cool down. This
will build up your heart muscle and increase blood flow and lung
This program has a gradual progression of
resistance up to 100% of maximum effort that is sustained for 25% of
workout duration. This will help build strength and muscular endurance
in the lower body and glutes. A brief cool down follows.
This program takes you through high
levels of intensity followed by recovery periods of low intensity. This
program utilizes and develops your “Fast Twitch” muscle fibers which are
used when performing tasks that are intense and short in duration.
These deplete your oxygen level and spike your heart rate, followed by
periods of recovery and heart rate drop to replenish
oxygen. Your cardiovascular system gets programmed to use oxygen more
The Manual program works as the name implies, manually. This means that you control the workload and not the computer.
Two people can store personal information
and design a custom program that can be saved for future use. You
decide what the resistance will be for each segment of the program.
HEART RATE (2x)
Designed to help keep you within 3-5
heart beats of your target heart rate % by automatically increasing or
decreasing the resistance level. Heart Rate 1 has a 60% (better for a
fat loss goal) of projected heart rate maximum default. Heart Rate 2 has
an 80% (better for a cardiovascular conditioning goal) of projected
heart rate maximum default.

Spirit Fitness Bikes
Indoor exercise bikes have been around for many decades. Their appeal and effectiveness have stood the test of time. Comfort, convenience, familiarity, enjoyment, and medical conditions are a few reasons this modality appeals to a large segment of the population.
The entire XBR series expounds on two of these critical areas – comfort and convenience. We know that if you don’t enjoy the experience that our products create, you won’t feel compelled to make using them a part of your lifestyle. Because of this, we offer a range of fitness bikes that vary from basic models to models that offer more technology and convenience.
Recline In ComfortSemi-recumbent bike seats typically slide forward and backward to adjust for your specific leg length. But, in addition, Spirit Fitness bikes offer a seat-back adjustment that travels fifty degrees, which allows for a more ergonomically-correct position to ensure a long, comfortable ride. Our reclining seats do not have pull pins with fixed positions; you simply squeeze the handle on the bike and the seat moves to your custom position. This feature is standard on the XBR55 and XBR95.
Mesh BackrestsAll of our home semi-recumbent bikes feature our mesh backrest, because we believe that you should be comfortable while working out. Our open-weave mesh allows air to flow through the back of the seat to keep you more comfortable during your workout. Our adjustable buckle system allows you to easily adjust the tension on the seat back for maximum comfort, and with our easy-to-wash mesh backrest, keeping it clean with a simple wipe of a damp cloth is ‘no sweat’.
Kinetic EnergySome fitness equipment companies talk about the weight of their flywheel as though it were the most important part of the fitness bike. But a heavy flywheel can actually make it more difficult to use, and create an unsmooth pedaling motion. Instead, we focus on the kinetic energy at the pedal. Taking into account the flywheel weight, pulley diameters, belt length, and belt tension, we have developed the perfect formula to assure a smooth start and finish during each pedal motion. The best way to feel the right kinetic energy at the pedal is to get on a Spirit Fitness bike and experience it yourself.
The Two-Degree DifferenceA key comfort issue for any semi-recumbent fitness bike is the distance between the pedals. Since the drive system on all semi-recumbent bikes is located between the pedals, we have adjusted the footpad on our pedals to have an integrated two degree inward tilt to make the ride more comfortable. Two degrees may not sound like much, but this is an example of where the spirit of innovation makes for a better cycling experience. This small but critical detail is only one example of what separates Spirit Fitness bikes from our competitors.
Built to LastWe have one of the best warranties in the industry because we have been building fitness products for over thirty years. All of that experience gives us the understanding of what happens to fitness products not just after two years or five years, but ten to fifteen to twenty years. We still hear from satisfied customers who have been using their Spirit Fitness products for decades.
We combine the highest quality components with years of engineering experience and then assemble them in our own ISO 9001 factories (International Organization for Standardization. Standard 9001 is a quality management system to help ensure the factory produces quality products).
Vote of ConfidenceSpecialty Fitness retailers voted in an independent survey and awarded Spirit Fitness as the Best Selling Fitness Bikes. It is a vote of confidence that these professionals chose the Spirit Fitness bike over all other brands. You can be assured your investment will be around for years to come.
Spirit Fit AppThe New SPIRITFIT APP is designed to monitor and record your workout data through an integrated Bluetooth 4.0 module that is compatible with most iOS and Android mobile devices.
Simply download the SPIRITFIT APP, set up the account, pair with your SPIRIT FITNESS equipment, then you’re ready to track your workout schedule, design your workout plan, and set your workout program.
All of your personal profile and exercise data will be stored in your mobile device. During your workout you can watch a movie, catch up on news, and check your email while the SPIRITFIT APP continues to record your exercise data in the background.
The SPIRITFIT APP also communicates with Fitbit, iHealth, RECORD, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal and other open source training apps so you can continue using the fitness apps that you are familiar with and keep all your workout history in one safe place.
The Spirit of Innovation
As with any product, a major key is the user interface. Whether it is your cell phone, car, or fitness equipment, you want to quickly be able to use it and get the information that is important to you. We focused on this simple principle in the development of our new consoles.
A quick press of a button and you are off on a walk or a run, or one of the many specialized workouts. Some models even allow you to develop your own programs. Our large, easy-to-read consoles give you constant feedback from calories to distance to time. There are even separate displays for heart rate and muscle activation.
Muscle ActivationIt’s important to understand which muscle groups are gaining the most benefit during your workout. On our fitness bikes, you will be using your glute (bottom), hamstring (back of your thigh), quad (thigh), calf, pec and arm muscles. The LED lights will activate in three degrees of engagement: Green represents minimal involvement, Amber medium involvement, and Red, full or heavy involvement. Use this quick reference to challenge yourself during your workout.
Music & Air ConditioningWe have integrated into most of our consoles a set of audio speakers. Simply plug in your choice of MP3 player or cell phone (adapter cord provided) and you can enjoy your favorite music to keep you going the extra mile. We’ve also built a swivel fan into most of our consoles to keep you a little cooler.
Heart Rate % ProfileHeart Rate training is proven to be one of the best ways to measure your workout. Our Heart Rate % Profile gives you a quick reference of your % compared to maximum projected heart rate. This is determined by your age, which you entered during the programming phase of any of the programs. The LED lights up in Amber for 50-60%, Green for 65% to 80%, and Red for 85%+. This is a quick reference for you to gauge your workout.
Easy-to-use FeaturesWe’ve designed our semi-recumbent bikes so that all of the adjustments can be made from the seated position, and all of the key features can easily be reached while working out.
Our bikes have two different levers to adjust the seat position; simply squeeze the lever on the left side and the seat slides front and back on the precision aluminum rail. The lever on the right side is for adjusting the seat back angle. On the XBR55 and XBR95, the seat tilts fifty degrees to find the most comfortable position. These models also have thumb controls on the handgrips to adjust the pedaling resistance.
Fitness Within Your GraspAll of our semi-recumbent fitness bikes have heart rate grips on our lower handlebars near the bottom of the seat. This makes heart rate monitoring convenient and comfortable. There’s also a water bottle/accessory holder attached to each lower handlebar. Place a water bottle in one side and your TV remote or cell phone in the other. Spirit Fitness’s bikes are easy to use and adjust; simply sit on one of our fitness bikes and within seconds you are adjusted to your custom position and off to the best workout of your life.
