But exercise bikes have evolved greatly. You’ll find a range of different stationary fitness bikes for sale in our store, including:
- Upright bikes
- Recumbent bikes

THE BENEFITS OF EXERCISE BIKES
Having a exercise bike at home offers a wide range of benefits, including:
STRENGTHEN AND TONE
Cycling will strengthen and tone your leg muscles. The primary muscles worked on a bike are the quadriceps (front of the thighs), glutes (bottom), hamstrings (back of the thighs), calves (back of the leg below then knee) and hip flexors (bottom of the stomach).
Cycling is a very effective form of exercise for weight loss. The number of calories burned will depend on your age, gender and so on but as a guide a young man can burn around 500 calories cycling for 30 minutes at around 17mph. Once you’ve finished your cycle your body continues working to repair the muscles used during your workout. This burns calories even once you’ve finished exercising.
A GREATER SENSE OF SAFETY
The outdoors has numerous hazards that cyclists must contend with, including vehicles and dangerous traffic. Exercise Bikes eliminate the need for you to go outside, allowing you to complete your exercise from the safety and comfort of your own home.
Cycling is an effective and simple form of cardiovascular exercise. Cardio training on an exercise bike can help you prepare for marathons or just help you deal better with daily demands. A healthy cardiovascular system increases the supply of oxygen to your blood and the supply of energy to your body. It helps reduce your risk of stroke and disease and can lower blood pressure.
IMPROVE YOUR SPORT
An exercise bike can be more than a piece of home gym equipment. It can allow for specific training focused towards the discipline of road cycling. The controlled environment that an exercise bike produces can help improve and track your cycling fitness as well as improve your technique. Exercise bikes let you work on the elements you need to improve on, whatever the weather!
LOW IMPACT EXERCISE
The low impact nature of exercise bikes make them a good option if you want to lessen any risk of injury or strain. Their smooth motion and low impact action combine to make a workout that is easy on your muscles and joints. As long as your bike is properly configured and set up in line with your biomechanics the pressure is taken off of knees and ankles making indoor cycling a popular alternative to higher impact activities such as running.
CONVENIENT AND COST EFFECTIVE
Exercise bikes are compact and often sleek machines that don’t take up much space. They also let you make maximum use of your time: you can watch TV, read a book or listen to music as you workout. Cheaper than paying gym fees, all of our exercise bikes come with fantastic warranties that ensure you get years of exercise out of them and start from as little as $199.
EXERCISE BIKES ARE QUIET
This simple fact makes exercise bikes the perfect fitness solution for the home.
