Fitness Reality 210 Upright Exercise Bike
Fitness Reality 210 is mid-range sturdy exercise bike with a vertical/upright design and a budget price. With a solid frame, it can have a maximum user weight of 275 pounds and people between 5’ and 6’4” of height can use it comfortably. This is actually the exact same model with the Ironman H-Class 210 (Model 6100) that we reviewed last year.
It is tested in the lab for endurance, performance, and durability. Despite being relatively low in price it includes some great features such as the 24 levels of smooth magnetic resistance for people at different fitness levels from beginner to advanced and 21 pre-set computer workout programs and 3 goal exercise settings of time, distance, and calories. The LCD-backlit display panel is also quite visual and shows the time, distance, speed, calories, rpm, watts, pulse rate and ODOmeter.
The hand pulse sensors are located on the fixed ergonomic handles on both sides of the display. And you can exercise in your target heart rate zone to get better results from your workout. There is also the red integrated smartphone and tablet holder just below the panel, and a water bottle holder just at the front. It is designed with high standards and looks and feels premium, is both robust and effective. It meets the requirements of Ironman and Fitness Reality triathlete training.
It runs smoothly and quietly thanks to the noiseless belt system, so you can burn calories and fat while listening to music or watching TV in the comfort of your home. Fitness Reality 210 weighs 53 pounds and measures 33 x 21 x 52.5 inches, has a small footprint and compact size and will not occupy a lot of space. With the floor stabilizers, there will not be any shaking or tipping.
It doesn’t have a foldable design but this doesn’t seem to be necessary and you can wheel it away easily. The seat is larger than normal and comfortable for working out for a longer period but could be even better with a little more padding. The seat height is adjustable and the pedals have anti-slip surface and plastic foot straps for your security. 24 levels of resistance are great for different levels of difficulty as most other bikes at the price level will offer 8 levels.
Fitness Reality 210 is offered with a year of limited warranty by Paradigm Health and Wellness that is known in the fitness industry for the brands like ProGear, Exerpeutic, WorkFit, IronMan and Fitness Reality. They offer decent customer service every day of the week between 8 am and 5 pm. The assembly is easy with the instructions and small tools included in the box. It has a very sturdy construction, a better LCD display panel, and 21 pre-set exercise programs. And it seems to be great for those that do not want to spend too much on a bike but want to get something very decent.
