Bicycle exercise equipment isn’t just for your local health club or gym. You can purchase bicycle exercise equipment for your home. This is an outstanding alternative to having to wake up early, tame your bed hair, go to the gym and fight over the best piece of bicycle exercise equipment. Bicycle exercise equipment purchased for home use is great for those who need an effective low-impact workout, but who are more comfortable in a seated position versus a standing position.
Stationary bike machines, both recumbent and upright, have electronic displays. The electronic displays can show you how much time has gone by or how much more time you have during your workout. The displays also show estimated number of calories burned and the distance you have pedaled during your workout. Some of the newer models also will allow you to use preset workout modes that include fat burning training, speed, intervals, hills and endurance training. With some of the more expensive bicycle exercise equipment you’ll find an interactive display that simulates biking through landscapes or even indoor cycling. Unfortunately, indoor cycling bikes do not have displays or preset workout modes. It’s up to you to keep the workout interesting and intense. However, you can buy accessories to your indoor cycling bike such as a spinning computer that tracks your time and heart rate. You can also purchase gel seat covers to give your butt a little cushion compared with a regular cycling seat.
