The old-school stationary bikes had clunky parts, fabric-belt tension, and something a little like an oven timer attached to the handlebars. There’s a reason those kind of stationary bikes are piled up in garages everywhere and used as clothes hangers. If you don’t enjoy riding a clunky exercise bike, you’re just not going to do it. And so begins and ends the quest to get fit and healthy. It’s a scenario that’s played out thousands of times, but it doesn’t have to be.
Step up to the BodyGuard V9X Upright Bike at home or at the gym. Slide on to the ComfortCush seat, lock in your feet with the quick-release pedal straps, and grip the handlebars. In an instant you’ll know your current heart rate, and you’ll be just seconds away from cranking up your metabolism, burning a ton of calories, and logging the kind of workouts that will get you in the best shape of your life.

Monitoring your heart rate during a workout allows you to speed up or slow down depending on your fitness goals to burn fat, build cardiovascular endurance, or strengthen your heart, lungs, and muscles. It’s a strategy elite athletes frequently use, and exercising based on a percentage of your maximum heart rate is a proven method to increase your fitness level, endurance, and athletic ability.
The BodyGuard V9X Upright Bike even includes built-in digital training programs to help you exercise within your target heart rate. Pedal your way through one of these workouts, and you can combine a serious aerobic workout with high intensity interval training to blast fat and take your fitness to a whole new level in a hurry.

Silicone Keys offer many advantages over standard membrane or plastic keys such as being more responsive, durable and reliable. As a result, Bodyguard Fitness uses Silicone Keys on the main keypad on all our equipment. These principle keys are the ones used most often, especially during exercise, and are prone to wearing out if an unsuitable material is used.
Digital Contact Heart Rate
Bodyguard’s Digital Contact Heart Rate Sensors offer far more accurate Heart Rate readings than standard analog sensors. Also, our dual sensor plates provide improved contact readings, which is a big advantage for users who traditionally get intermediate contact heart rate readings due to “soft” pulses in the hands.
Heart Rate Control Programs
Bodyguard Fitness offers a range of fully customizable Heart Rate Control programs ideal for both beginners and advanced users that will help maximize the results from each and every workout. From fixed Target Heart Rate workouts to Heart Rate Interval Training (only available on certain models) that moves the user through various zones there is something for everyone no matter the exercise level.
K2 Electromagnetic Resistance System
The premium grade K2 Electromagnetic Resistance System offers numerous advantages over alternative systems such as “servo motor” or “eddy current” that rely on magnets that physically move to adjust resistance levels.
When in comes to long rides the comfort of the seat is crucial. Our ergonomically contoured ComfortCush Seats are shaped to offer great support without restricting the users range of motion and cutting into the thighs.
6.5” Pedal Spacing
Correct body alignment is one of the most important aspects a user should be aware of when choosing a bicycle. Our indoor bikes have been co-designed with engineers from Rocky Mountain Bikes (www.bikes.com) to ensure that bio-mechanically correct pedal spacing is incorporated on our indoor bikes. This allows a rider to correctly align their hips, knees and ankles reducing the potential for injury.
Target Watts Programming
This unique program allows the user to set a target output of wattage they wish to constantly achieve. The console will then constantly adjust the resistance as the stride rate changes so that they always are producing the targeted wattage output. That way, if the user slows down there stride rate then the console will automatically increase the resistance so that the targeted wattage is maintained.
Solid Steel Seat Plate
Durable seat plate tilted correctly to ease pressure on the pelvis.
Infinite Seat Adjustments
A quick release fore-aft adjustment is combined with a heavy duty vertical pin-lock mechanism to create infinite fitting positions.
72 Degree Seat Post Angle
Inclinated at 72º to mimic the comfortable feeling of a premium outdoor bike.
Offers more exercise options and comfort no matter the preferred riding position.
