Exercise Bikes

In terms of space requirement and cost, Exerise Bikes have a lot going for them, and most modern models with magnetic resistance are extremely quiet, making them ideal for exercising at home where others may prefer not to be disturbed.

We have been impressed by the quality and performance of exercise bikes from as little as £500. As you look up the ranges your money buys better build and component quality as well as more advanced training programmes and clever interaction with the internet and devices, all those things to keep you interested and motivated.

Most Popular Exercise Bikes

Traditional upright exercise bikes are still top sellers. Recumbent exercise bikes have been around for quite some time now. These cycles are especially useful in helping people who would find it difficult to exercise on an upright bike, cross trainer or treadmill.

The big growth area in exercise bike workouts has been with indoor cycles, exercise bikes which require the user to behave more like a road-racing cyclist than sitting in the more traditional upright position. Versions of these cycles are now quite common for use in the home but if you are equiping a gym you should really consider Commercial Indoor Cycles to meet the demands of frequent usage.

Popularity for these types of exercise bikes stems from indoor cycling classes, and people now buy them for exercising at home in preference to normal upright bikes. If you are interested in this type of bike but haven`t yet tried one, please bear in mind that the different cycling position to an upright bike and that the seat will most likely be similar to those found on road bikes, which are quite a bit firmer and narrower than normal gym bikes.

Motivational Interactive Programmes

Interestingly, indoor exercise bikes seem to be developing in two directions, one being the class type cycle which people are using for fitness, and the other replicating road racing with interactive programmes linked to Google maps such as the Proform Tour de France training bike.

If a comfortable seat is high on your list of requirements on an exercise bike then an indoor cycle may not be your best choice as the saddles are similiar to those you find on road going cycles, usually very narrow and quite firm.

The Air Bike - for a Full Body Workout

If you`re looking for a bike that will provide some upper body involvement take a look at the Renegade Air Bike. As the name suggests, resistance is create by fan blades, and the moving handle bars are linked to the cycling mechanism to allow you to apply upper body power as well as using your legs. This is a heavy duty piece of equipment designed for regular use in commercial gym environments, but equally suitable for the serious home exercise enthusiast.
