A Congresbury-based health club has become the first in the South West to install the very latest in virtual fitness bike technology.

theclub at Cadbury House has now taken delivery of four, state-of-the-art Trixter X-dream training bikes representing an investment of £24,000.

Replicating the true motion of riding a bike outdoors, the Trixter X-dream bike has been proved to burn 55% more calories as opposed to a standard fixed wheel indoor bike.

With riders feeling real gears, brakes and handlebars the bikes' resistance accurately depicts the terrain gradients, track surfaces and conditions.

The four bikes also include virtual screens which shows the rider where they are in relation to users on the other bikes. It means they can race against each other making the workout more fun or competitive.

The reason for the Trixter's impressive performance is due to the unique X-Bar mechanism. With its realistic movement and seven levels of resistance it helps work the core and upper body, areas normally missed by other exercise bikes.

With four different terrains to choose from including Parkland, Semi Arid, Desert and Highlands, users will start on the easier green trails moving up through the blue, red, black and finally onto the toughest white graded routes.

Jason Eaton, manager at theclub said: "These new bikes really are the next generation in terms of health club fitness. They are also really good fun and once members get underway they'll soon forget they're exercising.

"Here at Cadbury House, we're constantly looking for ways to improve our members' experience and is why we have invested in these new bikes. It's what sets us apart from all other health clubs."
