ABOUT THE 550UBI

Biking provides a no—impact workout powered by pedalling, a motion very familiar to many people, making it very easy to perform properly.  Also, as our population ages, this cycling form of exercise is an important option for exercise facilities to provide because of its low risk of strain or injury.  Our commercial recumbent bikes are easy to understand, enjoyable to use and appealing to look at.

Intenza’s Interactive Series (i Series) commercial cardio line is redefining the commercial fitness industry and the market’s perception of cardio workouts.

 

DESIGN

Stability

Intenza products are a testament to quality and performance. The 550UBi Upright Bike is a worthy addition to any facility looking to upgrade its cardio offerings.

  • Robust frame structure ensures strength and durability
  • Meets European EN957-5 standards for pedal safety bringing confidence to exercisers and facility owners alike
  • 68kg (150 lb.) total weight provides stable, comfortable workouts.

 

Endurance

Endurance is needed not just for exercise. Endurance is needed for exercise equipment itself. Commercially, fitness equipment can face unrelenting use often in less-than-ideal conditions. The value in high-quality equipment comes from the ability to perform in heat, humidity, and repeated impact hour after hour, day after day, looking good all the while.

That’s endurance. That’s value. That’s the 550UBi.

  • Self-powered, 3-phase, hybrid generator and belt drive system provide consistent performance, smoothly and quietly. Minimal maintenance is performed quickly and easily.
  • Bottom bracket assembly with precision sealed ball bearings sustain, already exceptionally smooth, performance.
  • Aluminum components preserve the premium look of the machine, and your facility, by resisting rust and corrosion even in humid environments.

 

ComfortFit™ Features

An Intenza i Series bike complements the natural motions of the human body. Comfort and stability are keys to achieving fitness goals, therefore, Intenza bikes are ergonomically designed for optimum comfort and minimum distraction, helping exercisers to stay on their bike and finish their workout.

  • The frame’s low cross over design allows for ease of getting on and off the bike.
  • Ergonomic handlebar with integrated elbow support delivers maximum comfort in racing positions
  • Elegant and intuitive, Intenza bike seats are designed to adjust easily using only one hand, left or right, in a seated position, for a refreshingly comfortable exercise experience.

Correct knee-over-pedal spindle position, and correct lower body biomechanics, reduce pressure on knees and enhance rider comfort. Ratchet design delivers easy adjustment of seat height.
  • Ergonomic oversized pedals with grip and integrated straps for quick adjustments and pedaling comfort.
  • Water bottle and accessory shelf keep personal items neatly stored within reach.
  • Accommodates users weighing up to 181 kg (400 lb.).

 

EXERCISER EXPERIENCE

The cardio equipment people are most likely to use is the cardio equipment they are most comfortable with – where the learning curve is low and their confidence is high.

The Benefits of the Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike

Benefit 1 – A boost to cardio fitness

The Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike is a brilliant way to really get your heart pumping. Cardiovascular, or ‘aerobic’ workouts such as cycling strengthen your heart, your lungs and your muscles. They improve the flow of blood and oxygen throughout your whole body. This then, in turn, can benefit your health in a number of ways! This includes:
– Improved memory and brain functioning
– Lower blood pressure
– Better Sleep
– Improved Blood Sugar Levels
– A Stronger Immune system
– Better overall mood
– Lower Stress Levels
– and More energy

Benefit 2 – Helping with Weight loss

Depending on how intense your workout session is, as well as your body weight, you can burn more than 600 calories in an hour with a stationary bike workout. This makes indoor cycling an excellent workout option for burning calories quickly! After all, burning more calories than you consume is the number one rule of weight loss!

Benefit 3 – Burning Body Fat

Working out at a high intensity with the Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike helps to burn calories and build strength, and both of these in turn can lead to fat loss.

Benefit 4 – Provides a steady, low-impact workout

A stationary bike such as the Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike gives a low impact workout that uses smooth movements to strengthen bones and joints without putting too much pressure on them. This makes them a great workout option for people with joint issues or injuries.

Benefit 5 – Strengthens your legs and your lower body muscles

The Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike stationary bike can help build strength in your legs and your lower body. This is even more effective when using a higher resistance. The pedalling action can help strengthen your calves, hamstrings and your quadriceps. Additionally, it can work the muscles in your core, back and your glutes! And the more muscle you tone and build, the more calories your body will use to maintain them! The weight loss keeps on coming!

Benefit 6 – The Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike is great for Interval Training!

Interval Training allows you to alternate short bursts of intense exercise with longer intervals of less intense exercise. This type of training is great at helping you burn more calories in less time, and it also elevates your cardio fitness with its short bursts of intensity.

Stationary bikes allow for varied resistance levels, so you can exercise at low, medium or high intensities. This makes it great for an interval training workout!

Benefit 7 – The Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike is safer than road cycling.

Cycling outdoors can be a great way to exercise, but it does come with certain hazards, such as inattentive drivers, uneven or slick road surfaces, and poor visibility. Also, if it’s hot and humid, or cold and wet, it can be hard to muster up the motivation to head outdoors. It might not even be safe to do so.

With indoor cycling, you don’t have to be concerned about traffic, road conditions, or the elements. You can work out safely at a comfortable temperature any time of the year.

Working out with the Intenza 550UBI Upright Bike

Workout for Beginners

If you’re just beginning to building your fitness, the key is to start slowly and to gradually add more time and intensity.

Start with a 25- to 35-minute workout and progress from there, adding time in 1-minute increments as you build up your fitness.

Here’s a sample beginner’s workout:

Start off pedalling at a low intensity for 5-10 minutes.
Switch to medium intensity for 5 minutes, followed by:
high intensity for 1-2 minutes
medium intensity for 5 minutes
high intensity for 1-2 minutes
medium intensity for 5 minutes
Finish by pedalling at a low intensity for 5 minutes.

Workout for Weight Loss

This type of workout helps to burn calories and body fat, and it can be a good option to include in a weight loss plan. It’s also a good option if you want to switch up your resistance levels quickly.

Here’s a sample weight loss workout plan:

Start off pedalling at a low intensity for 5-10 minutes.
Switch to medium intensity for 3-5 minutes.
Alternate between high intensity (1-3 minutes) and medium intensity (3-5 minutes) for the next 20 to 30 minutes.
Cool down by pedalling at a low intensity for 5-10 minutes.

Workout for interval training

Once you’ve built up your fitness, you may want to boost your strength and stamina with interval training.

Here’s a sample interval training plan:

Start off pedalling at a low intensity for 10 minutes.
Switch to medium intensity for 10 minutes, followed by:
high intensity for 2 minutes
low intensity for 2 minutes
high intensity for 2 minutes
low intensity for 2 minutes
high intensity for 2 minutes
Cool down by pedalling at low intensity for 5-10 minutes.
Over time, you can increase your intervals one minute at a time.
