Nordictrack S22i Commercial Studio Cycle: FAQs:


What Are the Nordictrack S22i Dimensions?

The measurements on this bike are: 55″L x 21.9″ W x 56.9″ H



Does the Nordictrack S22i Have Live Classes?

Unfortunately, no. You can however choose from thousands of on-demand (pre-recorded) cycling classes from beginner to experience athlete (as well as other workouts like yoga, stetching, strength-training and more).

Also, many people actually prefer on-demand classes since live classes have one large drawback: you can’t pause them mid-class.

So if your phone goes off or you have to answer the door – you can’t pause the live class – and can end up missing parts of the class.

But with streaming on-demand classes you can pause the class if your workout gets interrupted – which is much more convenient.
