Life Fitness C1 Advanced Exercise Bike Review

Our view – This is the same bike as the C1 Basic with a different console. The C1 Advanced console has 10 programmes including heart rate controlled workouts to optimise fat burning and enhancing fitness, plus it comes with a chest strap to monitor your heart rate – far more accurate than hand grips. The Advanced console also has two user profiles so yourself and your partner can keep track of your own progress over time.

The seat is very comfortable and has 14 different adjustable positions and the racing handle bars allow for a good riding posture. The display and console are well laid out with a good sized LCD screen (white characters on a blue screen) that’s easy to read.

The warranty is an excellent lifetime on the frame, 5 years on the alternator, 3 years parts and labour on everything else
