18 Feb What is ‘Perceived Exertion’ and why does it help make the 3G Cardio Elite RB Recumbent Bike the best on the market?
By AARON DORKSEN — At Home Fitness Correspondent
Perceived exertion is how hard you feel like your body is working.
It is based on the physical sensations a person experiences during physical activity, including increased heart rate, increased respiration or breathing rate, increased sweating, and muscle fatigue.
If you are comfortable while working out you will almost assuredly be able to exercise longer and harder.
Conversely, if you are uncomfortable, you’re more likely to have a short, less productive workout.
The 3G Cardio Elite RB Recumbent Bike, which retails for $1,799 (check www.athomefitness.com for special deals), has been called the most comfortable recumbent bike ever built.
“Comfort is King” with the 3G Cardio Elite RB Recumbent Bike, which is available at the At Home Fitness Phoenix Superstore located at 14647 So. 50th St. Suite 110. This Ahwatukee Showroom has an incredible selection of fitness equipment.
At Home Fitness also has a Scottsdale Superstore and a Gilbert Superstore. AHF is Arizona’s leading 3G Cardio dealer and has the best prices and selection on this award-winning brand.
Here are three reasons why the 3G Cardio Elite RB Recumbent Bike is the industry’s most comfortable exercise bike (and will lower your perceived exertion):
Q-factor pedal spacing – A unique Q-factor pedal spacing helps make it a bike that people of nearly all shapes and sizes can use with great comfort.
The 3G Cardio Elite RB Recumbent Bike fly wheel is located under the seat, a design that enables the width between the pedals to be narrower than other bikes on the market. That helps provide much better comfort.
Most recumbent bikes have the fly wheel under the pedals, which requires a wider space.
Seat of comfort – A 3-way, adjustable mesh back seat rest and ultra-comfortable seat pad make this a bike you’ll want to use over and over.
The seat curves to adjusts to the contour of a user’s back, while offering just the right amount of stability and cushioning.
It’s extremely easy to adjust the seat to your desired position. The Infinite Airflow Mesh Flex adjustable back rest reclining feature is easily adjusted to a comfortable position during your workout.
The seat frame slide adjustment makes it possible to accommodate user heights between 5-foot and 6-4, weighing up to 350 pounds.
Space Saver – The 3G Cardio Elite RB Recumbent Bike is extremely well built and with a small compact overall length of 49 inches, it will fit into spaces other bikes won’t. Easy roll transport wheels and a smaller, easy to see over upper console will make working out a breeze!
The electronics are low enough to easily see over, allowing a user to watch TV.
Bonus tip – The high quality construction comes with a lifetime frame and seven- year parts warranty.
