So, you're shopping around for exercise bike that ticks all of the boxes. Luckily, at Gym Direct we have a huge rage of quality, high-performing bikes for both commercial and home use, at extremely competitive prices.
Let's start with Upright Bikes.
These exercise bikes are fantastic at mimicking a real-life intense ride up hills and across varying inclines. They engage your core muscles as a result of your body being predominantly held upright while riding. Typically, these bikes engage a wider variety of muscles and are a great option for those wanting a workout that targets most of the body, rather than just your legs.
What about Spin Bikes?
You've definitely heard of spin classes and how intense they are. But what most people are unaware of, is that these exercise bikes are also relatively easy on the joints. They're able to providing a smooth, low-impact ride without suffering on intensity one bit. Spin bikes also tend to be the quieter choice, and very popular for the home gym. If you purchase a spin bike, you can expect to be engaging your core just as much as your lower body.
How about Air Bikes?
These are definitely our favourite. If you want an exercise bike that will leave you sore and dripping in sweat, look no further. Air bikes are fantastic because the intensity of your ride is powered by air, and is determined by how fast and hard you pedal. Most air bikes also feature handles that move - giving you the ability to train your arms while training your lower body. While these do tend to be slightly louder because of the fan noise produced when riding, a sweet added effect is a beautiful flow of air to keep you cool while you ride. Some bikes like the FleetX FXAB5 offer a larger range of control by giving you the ability to decide how much air you want to feel.
Okay, what about Recumbent Bikes?
These exercise bikes are the safer option for those wanting to minimize as much pressure on the joints as possible. They feature extra large seats, which tend to encourage longer workouts, and are generally safe and easy to use for people of all skill levels. One thing to keep in mind with recumbent bikes, is they have a solid focus on rehabilitation rather than intense cardio sessions.
