Your Ride Fit™ Buyers Guide
This page provides lots of additional information about Ride Fit's live-action workout videos.
Is Ride Fit™ Right For Me?
Ride Fit™ training videos suit many different types of indoor cyclist. Here are a few examples.
There are many great reasons to bring some of your cycling indoors, one of the most obvious being that sadly too many of us live in regions where it's not possible to cycle all year long because of bad weather. Rather than suffering through dreadful and dangerous winter rides bring it inside and buy a stationary bike and/or turbo trainer. Then leave it to Ride Fit™ videos to provide you with a motivational and entertaining workout environment.
Stationary Bike User
If you use an exercise or stationary bike then you're already used to working out indoors. Ride Fit™ videos are not designed to replace your indoor cycling class but there are going to be times when you can't make a class or perhaps you're working out at home. If this is the case play a Ride Fit™ video on your favorite media device and immerse yourself in that "real ride" experience. As we like to say, "experience, as closely as can be achieved in an indoor environment, actually being there on the road." If your fitness center does not provide workout videos tell them about Ride Fit so you can more fully enjoy your indoor cycling room when no instructors are available.
Cat Cyclist / Triathlete
Rather than us tell you the benefits of working out indoors, we'll leave it to Anne Samplonius, twenty year Canadian professional cyclist. In the recent Ride Fit™ blog article, "The Abominable Indoor Trainer: My Best Training Partner" Anne wrote, "All my specific, intense workouts were done inside. There is no faster, better means to finding your form than using an indoor trainer. If you can handle a boatload of tempo pace pedaling and if you can mentally and physically plow through the challenging workouts, it is an effective and efficient tool to trim the fat, so to speak, from your training program. With the indoor trainer you can condense your workouts and get right to the nitty-gritty. This gives you the best bang for your buck. If you are like the majority of cyclists who ride time is limited, the indoor trainer is the best tool you can have in your arsenal of bicycle paraphernalia. Trust me. I have fallen in love with my indoor trainer. I have seen it work its magic on me and it has become my life-long training tool."
If you're a Road Warrior in a new place or a foreign country there's nothing nicer than having something familiar with you. Take your Ride Fit videos on your laptop, tablet, ipad or smart phone and workout to your favorite cycling videos rather than staring at the blank walls or inaudible TV in the hotel fitness center. Ride through the likes of California, Nevada and Spain and feel a little more at home!
Just Like Keeping Fit
Indoor cycling is one of the best forms of low-impact cardio exercise. In a 30 to 60 minute session, repeated several times a week, torch those calories, blast that fat and condition your cardiovascular system to function so much more efficiently. Indoor cycling can be enjoyed by any age group and Ride Fit videos provide stunning scenery and great music to "rock you through your workout".
As Bill Walton (ex. Celtic, three-time recipient of the NCAA Player of the Year Award and made-keen cyclist) said in a 2012 press release, "Ride Fit™ is a fantastic alternative when I can't get out on the open road with my bike. It's simple yet realistic and effective interface makes it easy to use and so much more fun than just about anything other than being "out there" on your bike. Ride Fit to Live. Live to Ride Fit. Roll on forever, enjoy the ride. Where will our Ride Fit take us today---undoubtedly to the Promised Land."
Recovering From Injury
Accidents can happen and falling off your bike can often result in injury and perhaps a prolonged recovery. Sadly too many cyclists find themselves in this situation and are often cleared by their doctor to ride indoors before venturing out on the road again (see our recent blog article). If you find yourself in this position, using Ride Fit™ indoor cycling videos can get you through the boredom often experienced by those using a turbo trainer.
Multiple Versions and a Detailed Training Guide - Now That's Value!
When you purchase a Ride Fit™ title you get two versions of each video if you're buying the DVD and three versions if you're purchasing our downloadable product. The first version comes with text-based instructions, audio alerts and a great Ride Fit music backing track. The second version comes with only text-based instructions and audio alerts so you can play your own music in the background. The final version (only available with a downloadable purchase) has been specifically optimized to work with TrainerRoad. Again, it comes with text-based instructions, audio alerts, a great Ride Fit music backing track but additionally has duplicated information available through the TrainerRoad app removed from the Ride Fit™ digital dashboard. All this and you get the detailed Ride Fit™ Training Guide. This contains valuable information on such things as the setup of your stationary bike or turbo trainer, how to get multiple workout experiences from the same Ride Fit™ video, and the use of heart rate monitors.

Downloads and DVDs
Ride Fit's training videos are designed to be played on your home computer or the latest multimedia phenomena - the smart device (e.g. iPad, smart phone or tablet). For those with access to a DVD based media system we've got you covered as well.
All our live-action training videos and DVDs are available in stunning widescreen high-definition and are suitable for display on all types of media devices from smart phones and tablets, to the latest flat-screen TVs. Our simple on-screen digital dashboard shows your critical ride information (resistance, cadence and perceived effort) and the terrain profile with progress indicator shows you where you are and what's coming next so you can pace your ride appropriately.
Prices in our Shopping Cart are in US Dollars. Appropriate taxes, any shipping costs (applicable only to DVD sales) and currency conversion are displayed after you supply your customer information during checkout.
For downloadable products, your invoice and fulfillment e-mail(s) will be sent at the time of purchase. If you do not receive these e-mails immediately please contact us via the Contact Us page.
For DVD products, your invoice will be sent via e-mail at the time of purchase. DVDs will typically be shipped within 48 hours, and at the time of shipment you'll receive another e-mail with shipping information. DVDs are region free and in NTSC format.
With so many types of media device on the market today it is impractical to test our downloadable products on every device. Thus, before buying one of our downloadable products we recommend you download the One Minute Sample Video. If this sample video plays successfully on your media device you can purchase our product confident that it is compatible with your viewing platform. If you have problems or can't play the test file please review our Video FAQ page. If this page does not answer your questions, please contact us and let us know what device you're using. We'll make every effort to determine if your media device is compatible or inappropriately configured.
Downloading a Ride Fit video requires a broadband Internet connection. By downloading the sample file you'll also get an estimate of the download time for the product you're interested in simply by multiplying the sample video download time by the product run time.
