Wondering whether to buy the C1 or the C3 Advanced bike? Which would be better? Which can give you better value for money along with a challenging workout routine? Well, the Life Fitness C3 Advanced is a fair bit more expensive than the C1 Advanced Bike.....almost £200 more; so, what does it give you in return? Read on to know more about the Life Fitness C3 Advanced bike.
There are quite a few modifications between the C1 and C3 Advanced. The Life Fitness C3 Advanced has cushioned pedals which come with non-slip surface and straps, making them a lot more comfortable than the C1 Advanced. The accessory tray on the C3 is also bigger – it can accommodate two bottles. And, if you plan on spending a lot of time on the C3 Advanced, you can take comfort in the fact that the saddle has deluxe cushioning and upholstery.
The biggest difference lies in the fact that Life Fitness C3 Advanced is self-powered. You start pedaling and the console lights up giving you information essential for your workout. The pre-set programs on Life Fitness C3 Advanced help to add variation to your workouts and break the monotony of what could be an otherwise boring exercise routine. The 10 programs also include heart sync workouts which regulate your pulse rate and keep it within targets that are pre-determined.
Wear the chest strap that comes with Life Fitness C3 Advanced and it sends accurate readings to the console to improve your workout. If you find them to be uncomfortable you can ditch them in favour of the grips in the handles that measure your pulse. However, the chest straps make a lot more sense than the handle grips if you are looking for precision workouts.
On the Life Fitness C3 Advanced bike you can choose how you set the goals – by distance, by pulse rate or the calories burnt. You also have the option of customizing your workout. In addition, since the console can store two user profiles, two people can use the bike. Independent data will be stored for each so that both can keep track of the progress they’ve made.
The Life Fitness C3 Advanced is a great exercise bike and it has loads of added features not to mention comfort. If you intend to use the C3 Advanced extensively, it would be a good buy; otherwise you may as well stick with the C1 Advanced.
