Exercise bikes are a popular gym staple due to their ease of use and versatility. Whether you are seeking a leisurely workout or intense training, you can achieve your fitness goals through an exercise bike. Plus, exercise bikes are a great option for those who have health problems that would otherwise make it difficult to use a treadmill or elliptical machine, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Fitness Gallery’s exercise bikes have a number of different functions to help you make the most of your workout, including adjustable seats, arm rests, and resistance and incline settings. Plus, our upright and recumbent bikes incorporate incredible technology, allowing you to track your calories burned, heart rate, distance traveled, and much more. They can be customized, and they’re made of high quality steel so you know that they will last.
“I purchased a recumbent bike from Fitness Gallery, and the sales staff did an excellent job evaluating my needs. I got just the right bike for my home and love riding it! Delivery was prompt and courteous, and the guys couldn’t have been nicer. Next time I need more home gym equipment, I’m definitely going back!”
– Tom D., Denver
Exercise bikes come in a range of styles, but they all share one thing in common: they provide an effective and customizable workout. Upright bikes are more affordable, recumbent bikes offer additional comfort, and dual-action bikes incorporate upper-body exercise, but cyclists can adjust all of these models to reach a comfortable but still challenging level of difficulty.
For help choosing the right indoor training bike for your needs, consult with the exercise equipment specialists at Fitness Gallery. Visit one of our stores in Colorado or Kansas to learn what to expect from each type of bike, and use our specialists’ expertise to select the best bike for your home and budget. You can try out different positions on each bike as well, such as standing up while pedaling. In addition, if you’re interested in a pricier product (such as a recumbent bike) but aren’t able to afford it, we sell used exercise equipment in great condition. You may be able to find your desired bike within your budget after all.
Types of Exercise Bikes
Amongst the several different types of exercise bikes available, upright and recumbent are the most popular. Both offer effective cardiovascular and lower-body workouts.
You’ll recognize the form of upright exercise bikes because they mimic standard bicycles, making them a great choice for people who already enjoy cycling outdoors. These bikes include bicycle-style seats and pedals, and they typically take up less space than other types of bikes. Plus, they’re more affordable.
Recumbent bikes, on the other hand, are more chair-like. The cyclist is partially reclined on a larger seat with a supportive backrest. Although you may have to push harder with a recumbent bike due to the positioning, the seat is more comfortable and may allow you to work out longer, burning more calories and deriving more toning benefits. When compared with other styles, however, recumbent bikes are typically more expensive.
Amazing Technology Features
If you haven’t been on a stationary bike in years, the amazing technology features on today’s exercise bikes might surprise you. Many bikes include readouts to show you how many calories you have burned, your rate heart, your distance, your work level, and more. These amazing bikes also offer top-of-the-line construction with robotically welded heavy-gauge steel and crank systems made of one-piece forged steel with sealed bearings. The strong structure and technological features will ensure that you get many years of fitness benefits from your exercise bike.
Benefits of Exercise Bikes
Convenience. When you own a stationary bike, you can exercise in the comfort of your own home. Whether it’s raining or snowing, the middle of the night, or a sweltering summer day, you can still get in a great workout. In doing so, you will also save money by avoiding the high costs and rigid memberships of gyms.
Warranty Protection. Your investment in an exercise bike will be protected by a warranty. Although warranties vary from bike to bike, typically an exercise bike comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, 10 years on the parts, and 1 year on labor.
Safety. Using an exercise bike indoors is inherently safer than biking in traffic, and you can place 100% of your concentration into your workout instead of worrying about traffic tie-ups and hazards like potholes, dogs, cars, and pedestrians. You can also watch TV while you work out, listen to music, or simply commune with your thoughts in the privacy of your home or office.
Fitness. Finally and most importantly, exercise bikes provide an effective cardiovascular workout no matter what your skill level. You can quickly burn calories and banish fat through regular workouts. Exercise bikes also place less stress on your joints than treadmills and elliptical machines, making them a great choice for people with health conditions that make exercise difficult, like arthritis or fibromyalgia.
