Below are details about the on-demand training programs, other features and customer protections.
Studio Pro Workout Programs
Studio bikes have WiFi for accessing LiveCast studio classes and iFit Coach Plus personal training.
LiveCast classes are filmed in a good-looking studio gym stocked with ProForm fitness machines. Every day a new spin class is made available to you on-demand. Instructors develop total-body workout sessions, so sometimes you’ll get off the bike to use light dumbbells (included), do pushups and so on. To keep an eye on the class video you can flip the bike’s 10” screen; it swivels and tilts.
Additionally Studio bikes are sold with one-year commitments to iFit Coach Plus, “the coach that fits into your pocket” as well as your HD bike screen. This innovative coaching program adapts to your activity to deliver customized recommendations for fitness, nutrition and sleep. As for workout programs, every day iFit Coach Plus delivers three options based on your ability and fitness goals. Workouts are filmed in scenic settings around the world to keep exercise choices fresh and motivating.
ProForm Studio Pro Features
A 10-inch HD touchscreen serves as the Studio Pro control center and monitor. The screen can swivel 180° to serve as your monitor for LiveCast and iFit Coach Plus workouts whether you’re on or off the bike.
Studio Pro bikes use a color-coded Watts display, which is especially useful feedback about your exertion level. You’ll also get a clear view of your heart rate, speed, calories burned and other session data. With iFit you can easily log your workout data and export it to other fitness apps.
The Studio Pro Exercise Bike has slope settings from -20 percent to +20 percent. This is just as steep as your options on the top-of-the-line Studio 22.0, and it’s a great way to challenge your muscles while making indoor bike rides more like outdoor exercise. iFit Coach Plus makes the most of the automated incline/decline by delivering personalized Google Maps workouts with interactive views of destinations worldwide.
For durability and quiet operation, Studio bikes use a patented resistance system called SMR Silent Magnetic Resistance.
Pedals on the Studio Pro are dual-sided; you’ll get a choice of toe straps and clips. The pedals have a universal design for customization, as does the bike seat.
The bike seat is padded for good ergonomics. It can adjust 4” horizontally (forward/back) and 13” vertically.
For convenient hydration a bottle holder is built into the console. Also integrated with the bike is a holder for three-pound dumbbells that arrive with the machine.
Transport wheels are attached for easy repositioning of the bike.
An iFit Vue fitness bracelet is provided for use with iFit Coach Plus.

The Studio Pro Exercise Bike is a favorite mid-priced option for indoor biking in 2017 and beyond. We like the generous range of adjustability, the ultra-customized coaching and the engaging incline training workouts from LiveCast and iFit Coach Live. Sale priced with a three-year parts warranty, this ride can be a great buy.
How it compares: The Studio Pro is a better value option than the luxury Studio Pro 22 bike with its captivating 22” display. If you don’t need that huge display, you can save a few hundred bucks. If you already own a tablet computer though, you could save even more money by choosing the basic Studio Exercise Bike.
