MyFitnessPal is now synced with Expresso, the unique stationary bike from Interactive Fitness. Admittedly, this high-end stationary bike does come with a steep price tag so we know not everyone can be so lucky to use this new MyFitnessPal partner, but for those of you fortunate enough to belong to a gym that owns one of these bikes or happens to have a really sweet home gym, you can now automatically upload your Expresso workout to MyFitnessPal. To find out where the nearest gym is in your area with an Expresso bike, click here.
Expresso sets itself apart from other stationary bikes in a variety of ways. The visual monitor attached to the bike together with the equipment itself are both designed to engage and motivate you while you workout, keeping your exercise fun but not distracting. The bike is fully integrated with the virtual ride on your monitor, meaning you use the handle bars to steer and shift and the resistance automatically adjusts to the terrain on screen.
Some other fun features unique to the Expresso bike include the option of going on biking tours (even in outer space!), having a personal pacer set to your level, and a leaderboard where you can compare yourself to other Expresso riders in your age group and gender. Also, Expresso offers you the chance to go on a virtual group ride with your friends, or, if you're not on the same schedule, share one of your previous rides with them and they can compete with your ghost. Yep, you can race your friends' time by chasing their ghost! The ghost function also allows you to race your personal best time visually.
With our new integration, your Expresso exercises now flow seamlessly into your MyFitnessPal Exercise Diary. All you have to do is link your accounts and ride; we'll take care of the rest. Click here to link your account.
Cardio exercise has never been more fun than on the Expresso bike, and now with the integration with MyFitnessPal, keeping track of your progress has never been easier. Ride on, and learn more about the integration in the MyFitnessPal App Gallery!
