PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

The MYX II Plus is more than just a stationary bike; it’s a connected training experience that encompasses both cycling and other types of workouts such as weightlifting. The MYX bike comes equipped with a swivel HD touchscreen display that streams live and on-demand workouts via the OpenFit subscription-based fitness platform. A membership is required in order to use the touchscreen display. 

Included in your purchase of the MYX II Plus package is a Polar OH1 heart rate monitor, six-piece medium MYX weight set with kettlebell, a stabilizer mat, an exercise mat, an EVA foam roller, and a resistance band. That’s quite a lot of bang for your buck. The bike itself is well-made with a durable, hypoallergenic steel frame, and is has a compact footprint as far as exercise bikes are concerned.

Product Summary

Immersive virtual training is taking the world by storm and MYX Fitness has developed a state-of-the-art bike to add to the mix of technology-driven training. This bike is durable, hypoallergenic, and, with a compact footprint of about 4 feet wide by 6 feet long, will fit in most home gyms. MYX is intended to work for users ranging from 4 foot 11 inches to 6 foot 8 inches tall with a weight capacity of 350 pounds. 

Featuring top-of-the-line sensors measuring speed, cadence, and heart rate (via an included chest strap), users can track fitness data to assess progress towards their desired results. A 21.5-inch interactive, swivel HD touchscreen display encourages users to immerse themselves in both live and on-demand classes via the MYX fitness platform. We should note that there are no cycling classes, however.

What’s more, this membership (about $39/month) provides workout routines for a variety of fitness genres including weightlifting, recovery and speciality training programs and challenges. Simply swivel the screen when doing other workouts. Buyer beware, though, that a membership is required to utilize the touchscreen display and sensors. 

MYX states that this bike is professional-grade and used in elite studios, but there are some users who found the bike uncomfortable and reported parts breaking after several rides. That said, bike riding can feel uncomfortable at first, so it’s important to give yourself time to acclimate to it. Users can utilize the SPD clip pedals or flip them over to use the toe cages instead. The adjustable handlebars and seat allow for a customized fit, and a rear stabilizer ensures a sturdy ride.

Another impressive perk is that a Polar OH1 heart rate monitor, six-piece weight set with kettlebell, stabilizer mat, exercise mat, EVA foam roller, and resistance band are included with your purchase of the MYX II Plus. These accessories facilitate a variety of workouts.
