Professional Bike Fit Reviews and Testimonials

Fitness Central Fit Studio will improve your comfort and performance...guaranteed.

Don't just take our word for it.  Here are just a few reviews and testimonials from some of the happy cyclists that have had their bike fit performed here at Fitness Central.

So what I have concluded from my bike fit from Fc Shop a couple of weeks ago. I went into the bike fit usually avg around 19.6-19.8 MPHs for my longer rides (60-80miles). So since then I have had two more long rides. I kept them on my regular route so I could compare - 1st ride post bike fit avg 20.4 MPHs (in the pouring rain) and 2nd one was 20.8 MPH. So yep it worked I would say. I came off my bike faster by 1 full MPH - and my transition run faster by over a 1min and a 1/2 over 3miles. So fastest training ride and run. Head out to Fc Shop and get your bike fit. SUPER HAPPY with these RESULTS - Thanks Rob Takacs!!

I’ve been road riding for 15 years and consider myself to be an avid cyclist.  Because I was never officially fit for a bike, last year (2015) I scheduled a Pro Bike Fit with Rob at Fitness Central.  The difference in my riding and comfort on the bike is amazing.  I no longer have neck or wrist pain after riding more than 20 miles.  I have much more power on hills and I’m faster on the flats.  My energy and effort is now directed into the pedals because my position on the bike is more accurate.  The time and investment is well worth it.  It has saved me numerous chiropractic and doctor visits which I have had to do in the past.  Rob is very professional and spent extra time with me to ensure all the measurements were correct.  I appreciate his knowledge and expertise.  My bike now fits like a hand in a beautiful hand stitched leather glove.  Do yourself a favor and schedule a bike fit with Rob today.

I had an excellent experience with Rob Takacs, from selection of bike to bike fitting. I have had several bike fittings at other locations, however I have never experienced such a thorough and comprehensive fit. From the initial interview, shoe/ cleat and pedal analysis to the video review was quite impressive and has made a difference in my comfort and power. The follow up to ensure my satisfaction is complete is scheduled soon, and although a few "tweaks" may be needed, I am completely satisfied.

I purchased a Trek Emonda SL6 from Fitness Central and had decided going in that I wanted a fit, as my previous bike was just a little too big for my build.  To put it simply, I’ll never buy another bike without being fitted for it.  During the fit process which took about 3 hours +/-, there were two points of adjustment that were what would probably be considered to be “minor” adjustments. One was a frame size adjustment, the second was bar width and both were immediately felt on the fitting machine.  It was night and day.  Left to make the purchase on my own, I would have purchased 1 frame size to large, and the bars would be too narrow.  I wouldn’t be as comfortable, and I wouldn’t enjoy the bike as much as I do.  I’ve now put almost 500 miles on my new bike and have enjoyed every mile.  I’m now riding more often,  and completing longer rides than on my older bike.  If you’re making the investment in a new bike, make the investment to make sure it fits your build and get the most out of your investment.
