Indoor cycling has taken the fitness world by storm, and it’s no surprise; using a Indoor Cycle is one of the best ways to get a low-impact but highly effective workout that will burn calories and tone muscles. Indoor Cycling Exercise bikes are also easy to use and great for adjusting to different fitness levels. This makes them an ideal piece of exercise equipment for a home gym. At total fitness, we offer a wide range of Indoor Cycles for sale. We would love to help you choose the right bike that will help you to work towards your fitness goals.
The Benefits of Exercising with a Indoor Cycle
A session on a Indoor Cycle is a great workout with a lot of benefits. One of the first is that you can burn a lot of calories. The amount of calories you burn will, of course, depend on the intensity of your workout, but it’s common to burn 500-600 calories in an hour-long workout. Indoor cycling is also excellent for your cardiovascular health; it will strengthen your heart and lung capacity: two big benefits that are essential to your general health and fitness. Unlike a lot of intense cardio workouts, however, indoor cycling is very low impact. An exercise bike takes the pressure off of your knees and feet. If you have bad knees or arthritis, or for any other reason you find that exercising on a treadmill or elliptical hurts, an exercise bike is probably the perfect equipment for you.
While you minimize that impact, you’ll be working hard to tone your muscles. Indoor Cycles are particularly effective at improving your leg muscles: the quads, glutes, calves, and hamstrings. Your legs aren’t the only thing to get a workout, however. Your abdominals will also benefit, and it’s easy to involve the upper body by incorporating some light weights into a pedaling session or cycling in a standing position. Another great benefit of Indoor Cycles are their versatility. You can adjust your workout by changing the speed and resistance, meaning that indoor cycling is easy to get into but that it will continue challenging you as you progress. Indoor Cycles are also a favorite kind of exercise equipment for busy people. You can easily multitask by reading or watching something as you ride. That means you never have an excuse for not fitting a workout into your day.
Types of Indoor Cycles for the Home
We stock a wide range of Indoor Cycles and exercise bikes from the top brands in exercise equipment. These include both recumbent and upright exercise bikes. Recumbent exercise bikes feature a seat with a back, providing extra support for your back. In a recumbent bike, you sit closer to the pedals in a slightly reclined position. Some people prefer recumbent bikes because they support the upper body and leave your arms totally free. Indoor Cycles more closely resemble road bikes. They have a simple saddle seat located above the pedals. When using one, you typically sit leaning slight forward with your hands on handlebars in front of you. Upright bikes provide a slightly more effective cardio workout, but some people find them less comfortable. If you visit one of our showrooms, we would be happy to help you try out both kinds of bikes and decide which kind is best for you.
