Designed to provide effective cardio workouts from the comfort and convenience of your own home, the We R Sports S3000 Magnetic Training Cycle can be adapted to suit a variety of user heights and cycling positions.
This product article takes a look at the bike in more detail, including the design features, adjustment options, and an example of a high intensity workout.
While these will often have a useful range of preset exercise programs to help you achieve your fitness goals, a studio style bike is often much more efficient for high intensity training.
Your body position when cycling on the bike resembles a road bike much more closely, allowing you to include more high intensity sprints and interval training in your workouts.
These sprints make it even more important that you are in a comfortable position when cycling, which is why you’ll need to find a bike that offers a range of adjustment options.
Fortunately, the We R Sports S3000 has been designed to offer you exactly that, with its fully adjustable seat and handlebars.
Stability and adjustment options
Although many bikes will claim to offer a number of different adjustment options, these will usually just be for the height of the seat, and perhaps the height of the handlebars.
But the S3000 doesn’t just offer vertical adjustment, but also the option to slide the seat and handlebars horizontally in order to better suit taller users.
One of the main design features to set this bike apart from other studio style bikes is the design of the frame.
Rather than having two horizontal stabilizer bars, the We R Sports S3000 gains its stability from a single, extra large base stabilizer at the front.
This extra length, curved angle, and raised design helps to ensure you stay stable on the bike at all times during your workouts.

Can you really benefit from a 15kg flywheel?
If you’ve already looked at some of the upright or folding exercise bikes by We R Sports, you might have noticed that the flywheel size for these bikes was closer to 5kg. But what’s the difference? How can this affect your cycling?
Put simply, a larger flywheel is used on the We R Sports S3000 to enhance the feeling of cycling on a road bike.
The larger diameter and heavier weight creates cadence. Cadence is the motion of the flywheel and how much effort it takes to make one full rotation.
Having a heavier flywheel means it takes more effort to get up to higher cycling speeds, but when you get there the momentum makes it easier to maintain that level of intensity.
This makes the S3000 ideal for interval training, where you can build up strength and tone in your legs at the same time as getting a great cardiovascular workout.
Suggested indoor cycling workouts
Although studio bikes don’t usually have any preset programs, you can still put together an effective workout plan to reach your fitness goals.
If you are training for power and endurance, interval (HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training) will be your best option.
Even 20 to 30 second sprints evenly spread throughout your current cycling workout can increase your oxygen capacity, help to burn more fat, and improve your endurance.
If you wanted to increase the intensity further, you can also try sprinting for 40 seconds, then recovering for 20 seconds. After 10 of these sets you would cycle at a low intensity for 5 minutes before repeating.
In just 25 minutes you would already have an effective, endurance building and fat burning workout.
You can always increase the number of times you rest and repeat the 10 sets, depending on your current level of fitness and amount of time available.
