Dyaco UK Ltd has announced the official launch of the long-awaited Johnny G Spirit Bike to the UK market, with the first installation in Feelgood Fitness in Grantham. The commercial indoor bike has been created in collaboration with fitness innovator Johnny G and offers a premium indoor cycling experience.
"We could not be more delighted to have the bikes created by the person who introduced indoor cycling to the world"
Suitable for riders of all abilities, the Johnny G Spirit Bike has 20 levels of electronically controlled, magnetic resistance, creating an opportunity for the user to replicate and differentiate their training sessions. Users have easy access to electronic shifters and can change the level of difficulty by scrolling or via a single touch. The power is self-generated, requiring no external power source or batteries, which allows for easy studio placement and low maintenance. Users can view a range of performance metrics on the high-visibility LED display, showing level, RPM, time elapsed, distance, Watts, speed and heart rate.
The Johnny G Spirit Bike enables a wide variety of individual or class training options. This is possible due to 2 core training protocols; HR Zone and Power Zone. These protocols allow the individual to train across 5 customised training zones, which are personalised to their own performance levels and colour coded via LED lights on the console. The key factor that this bike provides to determine the individual’s performance zones is the ability to perform a Functional Threshold Power (FTP) Test. The rider will have the ability to perform either a 5min test, or the standard 20min test.
Feelgood Fitness Grantham will be offering a variety of different class formats and programmes all designed to incorporate the Myzone system. This will enable members to stay motivated by monitoring their real-time performance and personalized training zones during a session and their post-workout stats so they can monitor their improvements. The Johnny G Spirit Bikes are ideal bikes for the FG Cycle Zone as they feature a telemetric heart rate receiver which is fully compatible with Myzone. In addition, the electronic shifters ensure that riders are able to keep a track of resistance and level of difficulty for a given training session, allowing them to replicate the workout and gives another measurable metric of progress as they improve over time.
Johnny G, commented: “It’s fantastic to see the first UK installation of the Johnny G Spirit Bikes at Feelgood Fitness. The bike has been developed to enhance the end user’s experience and the FG Cycle Zone provides the perfect example of how this is being achieved. The cockpit-style console of the bike was crafted to transport riders into an elevated state of performance through the integration of mind and body. By integrating with Myzone, this takes the experience even further through real-time performance tracking and post-workout data that allows them to make ongoing measurable and sustainable progress.
Dave Wright, Creator and CEO of Myzone and Owner of Feelgood Fitness Gyms, added: “We could not be more delighted to have the bikes created by the person who introduced indoor cycling to the world. Johnny G. Feelgood Fitness is the global training centre for Myzone so we have operators from around the world visiting and experiencing the Myzone technology. Why not have the best in breed for indoor cycling bikes too? Beyond the global stage, my members absolutely love the bikes. The look, the feel and the heads-up display take our club to a whole new level, and the fact that they integrate with Myzone is the icing on the cake.”
