What customers dont love about the York Fitness Active 110
The York Fitness Active 110 comes with 4 pre-set workout programmes which were sufficient for many users. However, there were a few customers that express that they wished they had purchased an exercise bike with a greater selection of workout programmes. If this is off-putting we recommend checking out the JTX-Cyclo 5 or DKN AM-E which both come packed with pre-set workout programmes.
