York Fitness Active 120 2-in-1 Cycle Cross Trainer -, Well manufactured and easy to assemble.

Am extremely delighted with the purchase and can see the result if you work hard.

It not only looks good, it was very easy to build by myself, although i needed help to lift one heavy part. Instructions extremely clear. However, on arrival, i thought i had made a mistake in buying it, the contents of the box were everywhere, not neatly packaged, and i was positive bits must be missing or broken. Computer part tightly wrapped and perfectly easy to use with a variety of programmes. It is very effective as both a bike and cross trainer. I like the variety of the two in one. But just needs a little oil on a part my husband degreased. All in all i’m extremely happy with my purchase. It is better looking than most of the other cross trainers, so fits easily aesthetically in our lounge. Seat is padded and very comfortable. It works very well and is easy to use. Even has rear wheels that can be used to move it if needed.

York Fitness Active 120 2-in-1 Cycle Cross Trainer – Black

  • Cross trainer and exercise cycle
  • 17 programmes including 12 pre-set, 3 HRC, one user and one manual workout
  • 16 levels of computer controlled magnetic resistance
  • LCD console displays time, pulse, distance, calories and more
  • Fixed and moving handlebars for lower and upper body workout
  • Pulse grip sensors for heart rate measurement

I spent a long time researching to find the right product and definitely made a good choice with this one. The instructions were very clear and the parts all neatly packaged and labelled so assembly took about 90 minutes. With all the programmes and resistance levels i get a great workout at home and it is so quiet i can still use it while the whole family watches tv. It’s a very sturdy piece of equipment that couldn’t be easier to use. The only negative comment i would have is that i don’t get an upper body workout. I’m 5′ 8′ and while my legs work hard, my long arms barely move when holding the handles. Otherwise a brilliant piece of kit and highly recommended for any fitness level. Makes me smile whenever i walk past it.

Great purchase – better than expected. . Very sturdy and easy to use by all the family – we love it.

    I have to say i have always enjoyed york fitness machines. The ellipsis seems to be too short on this exercise machine. I am used to the xc530 which had a much longer ellipsis and seemed to give me much more beneficial exercise. I have to say i have always enjoyed york fitness machines. This one is leaving me slightly baffled and with a feeling i’m not really getting the work-out that i need.

    I have not used the braking resistance yet, as l find doing 30 minutesexercise ( 20 minutes cycling and 10 minutes cross trainer) 5 days a weekadequate for my needs. L am not to confident of the pulse reading onthe console though. Other functions on the console i. Time,speed,distance,calories, rpm & watts l find very useful.

    An excellent bike and cross trainer. An excellent bike and cross trainer. My husband is an engineer and says the bike is very well made. Easy to follow instructions. Bike up and running in 30 minutes. Saddle comfortable to use and lots ofprogrammes. Im on the heavier side but bike is sturdy. Worth the money for the quality.

    Well made and sturdy machine – terrible user manuel. . This machine is perfect for our use. It provides an extremely handy way to exercise regularly and the cross trainer aspect of its design works well for us. There are significant benefits to the cross trainer type of exercise that involves the arms and shoulders. I wouldn’t have thought that shoulder and neck problems could have been so easily improved by using this simple type of routine. This could be said of any cross trainer bike but why is this model so recommendable?it is easy to construct although two people make the job easier. It is very strong in construction although not intended for commercial gym use it is much better than some similar home use models. It has a solid feel when in use and that is so important as you are giving the machine quite a hard time of itdrawbacks though there are. The seat could be a little more padded and the suitability for a tall person would have to be questioned as the reach is only just enough for me at 6 feet. Worst aspect though is the manual that comes with the bike.

    Great machine for a great price. I hate flat-pack but this came so well packaged and explained that i had pleasure in assembling the unit before even trying it. The tools are not really up to it if you want to make everything really tight and i would recommend using a socket set and ratchet drivers to get a really good union. Once put together i was bowled over by how quiet and smooth it runs. The computer control is very easy to follow and the range of exercise programs is more than enough for a domestic user. It feels solid and robust and i am enjoying the benefits it is bringing. For the price i was amazed at how close it felt to a piece of professional gym equipment.

      1. Good enough for the price you pay. Good enough for the price you pay. The bottle holder is in the way (knees hit it) and it squeaks.

    Very pleased with this, it’s well made and easy to put together.
    1. I purchased the cycle cross trainer a few weeks ago,and i am so pleased with it as i had to stop using my treadmill due to knee problems,so i tried the machine and was so pleased to find i can use it with no pressure on my knees. I am doing 30 minute stints every two to three days,and starting to feel the benefits,losing a few pounds already. I cannot comment on the program features as yet because i have not used this yet,i am using the manual feature at the moment. It is great value for the money and so much cheaper than gym fees in the long run.

  13. Easy to put together and a solid piece of kit when fully assembled. Trainer is extremely smooth running and each exercise (x-trainer and bicycle) is easy on the legs and hips. One slight criticism is that the pace length is rather short, thereby lending itself to increasing the rate without conscious effort. A very nice exercise tool which is built to last.
