Exercise Bikes, along with treadmills and home gyms, are one of the most popular pieces of fitness equipment purchased for weight loss and improved fitness. But the trouble is people buy a bike which is not really comfortable or doesn’t motivate you and it ends up being somewhere to hang clothes in the corner of the bedroom or something you trip over in the garage.
Did you know Cycling on an exercise bike can help you burn a lot of excess calories and can improve the strength and health of your heart and lungs. Cycling at 15 kilometres per hour (9 miles per hour) burns nearly 12 kilojoules / 3 calories per kilo of body weight every half an hour. For a person weighing 100 kilos, that equates to 1200 kilojoules or 300 calories every 30 minutes.
Why not buy a bike which motivates you, keeps track of your schedule and most of all you use so you can go from the ProForm 245 ZLX Exercise Bike you can customise the seating etc. for comfort and easy to use tracking or maybe you’re looking for something a little more sophisticated with the Technogym Recline Forma Exercise Bike withTraining Link offers personalised workout plans tailored to the goals
