Unlike other cycling and running fitness products, the beauty of FitRacers is that we offer a quick and easy, one-stop solution for fun and exciting, high-tech fitness. All you need is your smart phone, the FitRacers Sensor Kit and your own two feet to get started. If you want to get super fancy, cast FitRacers onto your smart TV and turn your living room into an incredible fitness center.
You don't really need to read most of the techie stuff below to get started (but you can if you want to get fancy). All you need to do is order the FitRacers Sensor Kit and watch our GETTING STARTED VIDEO. It's really that easy, however; make sure you at least read the Smart Phone Requirement part below.
FITNESS EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS
FitRacers can be used INDOORS with a spin bike or treadmill and OUTDOORS with a bicycle. It's super easy to get started and you don't even need any equipment if you plan to use it while running OUTDOORS. If you want to use it for INDOOR cycling, a convenient way to use it is with your bicycle and an inexpensive bike trainer (that bike stand contraption that lifts the back wheel). It's really that easy. Use the equipment you got, and remember, FitRacers works with any spin bike, treadmill or bicycle on the market.
SMART PHONE REQUIREMENTS
FitRacers works on many Android smart phones that are less than 2 years old (purchased approximately after March 2018). It is difficult to gauge if it will work on smart phones older than this, BUT if you're not sure, you can take advantage of the FREE FitRacers subscription trial period and run the simulator to see for yourself.
You'll need the appropriate cadence sensor AND a heart monitor to use FitRacers. The cadence sensor is used to track your pace as you workout. The heart monitor tracks your heart rate bpm. The FitRacers Sensor Kit provides the sensors you need to get started. They can be purchased through the FitRacers app.
