Nordictrack Bike

Has anyone ever used one? My wife and I got a Nordictrack s22i (she already has a treadmill, and thus we pay for the family ifit account, etc).

Do you find the workouts hard enough?

I guess I like the workouts, but there just seems to be a lot of trial and error - either the workout is too easy (or I'm assuming it will be too hard if I select a higher intensity because I'm out of shape currently).
I *really* like how trainerroad would test your FTP with the RAMP test - and then base your target wattages off your calculated FTP. The hard days are HARD, and the over/under intervals really hit the zones right on the head for me.

I feel I always got the best results from those over/under long 20 minute intervals hovering right under your FTP. I don't feel like that type of training is going to be possible on this Nordictrack. Let me know if you've tried it and gotten accustomed to it -- does it have any features like that? Thanks.

I had one of their recumbents years ago and liked it, but my family felt it wasn't much of a workout and we eventually ditched it.

So I messed around today and - it definitely will be hard enough.

I wish they’d add some type of ftp training though, and have an erg mode. Maybe they do and I haven’t found it yet.
