  • (1888PressRelease) March 28, 2013 - Costa Mesa, CA - During March 2013, Relay Fitness Group exhibited the Evo cx indoor cycle at IHRSA 2013, an enormous expo featuring the leading manufacturers and service providers for the health club industry. The Evo cx is the first commercial model of the Evo Fitness Bike, a new type of indoor cycle that features a sway frame and patent-pending beltless, chainless gear drive. Jack Nunn, head trainer for the Evo Fitness Bike, was also on hand demonstrating the unique workout potential of the indoor cycle.

    "The IHRSA expo was a fantastic event; it was the first time that the exercise potential of the Evo Fitness Bike was demonstrated in person," stated Jack Nunn. "It was fun to see how different people reacted to the unique rocking motion of the bike; for the most part, the reaction was simple: they sweated."

    The Relay Fitness Group booth featured an instructor stage, sound system, and 15 Evo Fitness Bike units, allowing people to sign up and join the three, 20-minute workout sessions held each day. Dozens of people took advantage of the opportunity to try the indoor cycle and Jack Nunn's unique training programming at the same time.

    Jack Nunn developed TriCore Indoor Cycling to take advantage of the Evo Fitness Bike's sway frame. The rocking motion of the indoor cycle offered Jack, an avid triathlete and Iron Man competitor, the opportunity to safely train for competition while also giving him the natural feel of an outdoor cycle. He used his competitive experience and the sway motion of the bike to create a new certification (to be approved as continuing education by AFAA in mid-2013) and workout DVD called TriCore Indoor Cycling released in 2012.

    Unlike typical indoor cycles, the Evo Fitness Bike's frame rocks like a real bicycle. Whether you realize it or not, your core muscles and upper body are used when you ride a bike outdoors. They help to stabilize and balance your body while you pedal. Cycling professionals are able to use this rocking motion to counter-sway the bike, throwing more power into the pedals when they climb hills or perform all-out sprints. To see this motion, simply watch the next Tour de France and pay attention to how their bikes move when they stand.

    Several other companies were displaying indoor cycles at the event; however, few had the same unique characteristics of the Evo Fitness Bike. One other bike featured an additional plane of motion, but achieved the movement in a much more complicated manner for a completely different purpose. The purpose of the Evo Fitness Bike is to mimic the natural pedaling motion of outdoor riding, not to simulate turning a bike like the competitor's offering. The other major purpose is to be durable and maintenance free, and the Evo Fitness Bike achieves that through solid construction and a unique beltless, chainless gear drive that achieves a 7:1 gear ratio without the need for maintenance or adjustments.

    "IHRSA 2013 provided us with an excellent opportunity to showcase the Evo indoor cycle and our new workout programming with Jack Nunn," stated Marko Vujicic, CEO of Relay Fitness Group. "We were happy to see that people really enjoyed how much the Evo rocks."

    The full commercial Evo cx and light commercial Evo ix models are available through the Relay Fitness Group's dealer network. For additional information about the Evo Fitness Bike or Relay Fitness Group, visit www.relayfitness.com.
