Considering that the Reebok Trainer RX 4.0 is priced at around $600-700 it surprisingly comes with a good number of bells and whistles, including a built-in fan and Intermix Acoustics 2.0 Sound System. However, it is also one of the most technologically packed exercise bikes on the market, with its 20 resistance levels, 15 weight-loss workout programs, 15 performance workout programs and a slot for an iFit workout card.
The Reebok RX 4.0 comes with a very good range of workout programs, including 15 weight-loss workouts and 15 performance workouts, allowing you to find a program that is in-line with your fitness goals. However, we also like the fact that there are a couple of manual programs, as they allow you to completely customize a workout to your liking.
There are 20 levels of resistance to choose from, which is certainly on the high end, particularly for a sub $1,000 exercise bike. The first few levels take things nice and slow and are ideal for warming up and warming down, or for people who want to gently acclimatize themselves to starting an exercise regime. On the other end of the spectrum, the highest resistance levels are very challenging and are sure to offer people who fancy themselves to be in excellent shape a serious workout.
The Reebok Trainer RX 4.0 computer monitor provides you with feedback on time, distance, speed, calories burned, in addition to your pulse, due to the inclusion of a Dual-Grip AccuRate Heart Rate Monitor which is surprisingly accurate.
The feedback is easy to read thanks on the ClearView Backlit Display, largely in part due to the writing be black and oversized on a green background. Changing the resistance level, workout program, switching on the fan etc takes just the touch of a button.
The Reebok RX 4.0 seat is fairly well-padded and therefore comfortable to sit on; however, if you are undertaking a marathon long session then your backside may hurt afterwards. The seat is highly adjustable and can cater to people who are under 5′ right the way up to 6’3 and taller.
Transport wheels can be found on the bottom of the bike for ease of transportation and storage purposes.
The RX 4.0 comes with a few bells and whistles -i.e. they’re not really needed but it’s nice to know that they are there. These include a built-in CoolAire fan, an Intermix Acoustics 2.0 Sound System and compatible Music Port for an iPod, iPhone and iPad, as well support for an iFit Workout Card Technology slot, which is an 8-week progressive workout program designed specifically by a Certified Personal Trainer.
The Reebok Trainer RX 4.0 is backed by a lifetime frame and 1-year parts and labor warranty.

REEBOK TRAINER RX 4.0 USER REVIEWS
The RX 4.0 has been well-received since its release. Users say that they love how quiet the bike is, as it allows them to watch T.V, listen to music and not disturb others while working out. Users seem to be in agreement that that the computer monitor is large and well-lit, thereby making it easy to read. The bike’s ease of adjustability has also been praised. The RX 4.0’s construction quality is also considered to be excellent.
However, there is a minor complaint that is to do with the seat when exercising for an extended period of time.
There is very little to complain about; however, the fan isn’t powerful enough to be effective and the sound quality of the speakers could be better.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW?
The only things that the Reebok RX 4.0 have going against it are its ineffective fan and sound quality of the speaker. However, considering that these are common issues with exercise equipment that retails into the thousand of dollars, it would be unfair to make too much of a point of these things.
Therefore, if you’re looking for a well-constructed, reasonably priced, quiet exercise bike then the RX 4.0 is worth considering.
