X-Biking takes indoor cycling to a whole new level. It strengthens the lower body, the core and upper body through the use of the moving handlebars. It's as close to a real bike as an indoor trainer will ever get. X-Bike instructors enter certification at the level of a Sport-Category Instructor and can work up the ladder from X-Category to Elite-Category to Pro-Category Instructor.
