Every year we say we're going to be more active. We sign up for gym memberships, download fitness apps, buy exercise equipment, find trainers and attempt to take more walks. But despite all our efforts, we often end up back in our old patterns. And instead of putting all our cute fitness outfits to the test, we find ourselves stuck rocking them on grocery and coffee runs (not that we have anything against athleisure). Well, that was until the MYX Fitness MYX II at-home exercise bike came into our lives. To put it frankly, it's helped us get our crap together, and not to mention it's up to $600 off right now. Here's everything you need to know about it.
PureWow Editors Are Obsessed With the MYX Fitness At-Home Exercise Bike (& It's Up to $600 Off This Week)
What Exactly is the MYX II Exercise Bike?
Basically, it's an effortless and personalized at-home cycling experience. And if you're familiar with the Peloton and SoulCycle bikes, this is a comparable, if not better, workout system. Whether you want to burn calories fast or need a longer workout to clear your head, the sleek bike—which features an interactive touchscreen—is designed to help you reach your fitness goals, whatever they may be. All you have to do is tap the 21.5-inch touchscreen, choose from thousands of workouts and dozens of trainers, and it's like you're at the gym.
Some other features to highlight? It can be paired with the Apple Watch, and it tracks your heart rate, speed, cadence and distance in real-time. It also assesses your current cardiovascular fitness, which trainers use to guide you toward your goal. But the thing we love most is that the bike focuses on your heart so that you don't overwork or injure yourself during your exercise.
Will The Exercise Bike Be on Sale for Black Friday?
From now until November 28, you can save up to $600 on the bike when you use coupon code 'GEARUP250' at checkout. The amount you save will vary based on which bike model you get, but the lowest discount you'll receive is $250, plus free shipping, assembly and a stabilizer mat that keeps your bike stationed during intense rides.
MYX II VS MYX II PRO: What's the Difference?
It comes down to this: The MYX II Plus comes with everything the MYX II comes with (including the bike itself and stabilizer mat), in addition to a six-piece weight set (psst...the rack is sold separately), a kettlebell, exercise mat, EVA foam roller and resistance band. In other words, the MYX II PRO is like the complete package, whereas MYX II only includes the essentials.
What is the On-Demand Membership?
It's one of the best things about the bike. Similar to a gym membership, you pay $39 a month for unlimited access to workout content, expert trainers and fitness and heart monitoring and reporting. Not to mention the membership covers up to five profiles, so you, your sister, cousin, dad and best friend can all use it (and maybe split the price *wink wink*).
And did we mention you can test the bike for 30-days risk-free to ensure it's the right fit for you, and you'll receive a free one-year warranty just in case your equipment gets damaged? That, plus the up to $600 deal sounds like a win-win to us.
