What is admirable about the NordicTrack GX5.0 Sport is the manufacturer skipped the gimmicks and presented a stripped down exercise bike that has all the features to improve your health.
The trainer is simple and effective, capable of improving cardiovascular health or for those recovering from an injury.
Unfortunately, the NordicTrack GX5.0 Sport is not equipped with any pre-defined workout programs. In terms of exercise bikes this is not all that unusual when compared to treadmills & ellipticals which almost always have a pre-defined selection.
The wireless chest strap monitor keeps you in your target zone so you can easily adjust your intensity. Be prepared to purchase the wireless receiver and transmitter separately.
The NordicTrack GX5.0 Sport exercise bike sports a backlit LCD display that tracks speed, distance, RPM and burned calories.
Even though the GX5.0 Sport is also not compatible with iFit Live, there are still plenty of opportunities to be creative and design your own exercise workouts.
