24 Apr Exercise bikes provide multitude of fitness benefits
Getting fit can literally be as easy as riding a bike.
Exercise bikes have been around as long as just about any type of fitness equipment for a reason — almost anyone can use them and they get results.
Whether it’s a recumbent bike, upright bike or other type of indoor cycles – exercise bikes provide an excellent way to get a good cardio workout. At Home Fitness has the following great brands of exercise bikes to choose from: BH Fitness, Life Core, Life Fitness, Octane Fitness, Lemond, Ball Bikes, ElliptiGo, Bladez and Inspire.
Exercise bikes should be an important part of any home gym for many reasons.
For starters, they are Low Impact. There is much less impact on an exercise bike than a treadmill because you’re not jumping or running on an exercise bike. An exercise bike can help you get a good cardio workout without taking a toll on your joints. Exercise bikes are great for people with joint problems or pain.
Regular exercise on a bike helps improve your cardiovascular health. Heart disease and stroke are leading killers of men and women, so this benefit is of utmost importance.
Believe it or not, research has found that regular workouts on an exercise bike can help manage joint and even back pain. The American Council on Exercise has reported that researchers at the Virginia Medical Center found in a study that people with chronic back pain who rode an exercise bike for 25 minutes had a lower perception of pain for at least 30 minutes afterward.
Basically, if you get the blood flowing and muscles moving on a regular basis, it can loosen up your body.
Exercise bikes are one of the safest forms of cardio exercise you can do. It’s obviously safer than walking or running outside, and even more safe than exercising on a treadmill or elliptical, where there is a slight risk of falling.
Compared to other cardio machines, exercise bikes remain one of the most affordable.
