The playfit® Sit & Cycle model is an excellent way to improve stamina and is easy on your joints at the same time. Body weight is supported by the seat and the exercise is focused on your leg-muscles. The movements are fluid, easy to carry-out and control and the level of intensity can be dosed according to individual preference.

Outdoor Sit and Cycle – Areas of application

The playfit® model Sit and Cycle is suitable for installation in the following types of locations:

  • public parks
  • residential complexes
  • rehabilitation and treatment clinics
  • recreational facilities
  • retirement homes
  • wellness hotels
  • on company premises

Our playfit® equipment is corrosion-resistant and durable, making it easy to maintain and service and, as such, is very economical to operate in the long-run. Two units placed next to each might even encourage joint training sessions – for gentle endurance exercises and/or strength training together with friends and acquaintances.

This piece of equipment is very attractive and easy to use – just sit down and start pedalling. This is particularly motivating for people who are not keen on exercising or don’t exercise often to try it out.

Our ergometer offers endurance training that is easy on the joints, as the body weight is supported by the seat.
A backrest supports the back. This protects the spine and relieves the back muscles.

For additional security, users can hold on to the handles mounted on each side of the seat. And, because you are seated, you might even like to read a book while exercising. The exercise is simple and easy to control. This allows the training intensity to be ideally regulated.

For whom is the playfit® Sit and Cycle suitable?

The attractive outdoor seated bike is suitable for all age groups and fitness levels. It is particularly interesting for people who want to do some relaxed exercise and build up or maintain their basic fitness, for example:

  • Occasional athletes
  • Seniors
  • Fitness beginners
  • Children
  • People with physical disabilities
  • Office workers

The simple and steady movement sequence strengthens the cardiovascular system and requires no particular prior level of fitness.


Get seated, lean back and hold onto the handgrips. Place your feet on the pedals and start turning them, moving your legs forwards and backwards in even and steady cycles.

As the body weight is supported by the seat, the exercise is focussed entirely on the leg muscles. Carry out this exercise slowly and steadily.

For improved endurance, increase the speed and the duration of your training sessions. Try to keep your abdominal muscles tensed. Avoid overexertion. Download your training programme for the recumbent bike directly and keep it to hand.

Due to its low resistance, the outdoor recumbent bike is not primarily suitable for high-performance training. For such exercises we recommend the playfit® Elliptical or the playfit® Sit and Row machines for strength and endurance training of the upper body as an alternative recumbent bike.


What is the maximum load capacity of the Sit and Row?

The outdoor recumbent bike is designed and certified for a maximum user weight of 150 kg.

Can the outdoor Sit and Row be individually adjusted to the rider’s height?

There are no adjustment devices for the recumbent bike to suit individual body sizes. In general, adjustment of outdoor equipment with movable parts installed in public spaces is not adviseable as the mechanisms can get clogged up with dirt or leaves and become stuck or difficult to adjust.
Based on DIN EN 16630, the training device is intended for users who are 140 cm or taller. Experience shows that even people up to a height of 190 cm can train optimally on the seated bike.

What is the average calorie consumption during a training session?

Among the cardio machines, a recumbent bike is the one that burns the fewest calories. No reliable figures are available for this training device. However, the recumbent bike is an ideal way for very overweight people to start training, as the strain on the joints is very low.
