Why Choose an Exercise Bike?
Regularly working out on an exercise bike provides you with a multitude of benefits. It is a fantastic option for low-impact workouts as, unlike other forms of exercise, such as running, there is less pressure on your joints. This is especially important if you are getting back into fitness or taking the first steps in your fitness journey.
Exercise bikes are fantastic for maintaining muscle and increasing endurance. They also provide a cardiovascular workout, proven to help reduce diseases and illnesses ranging from heart disease to high blood pressure. You can also up the ante in a HIIT training workout on your exercise bike, proving that the bike is a versatile all-rounder for gym equipment.
Ranging in prices, aesthetics and features, we have a collection of varying exercise bikes available so you can be sure to find the right fit for your home or commercial gym.
Choosing The Right Workout Bike
When first starting out on a journey and a healthier and happy lifestyle, an exercise bike is often the first choice of equipment. To ensure you can get the most out of this piece of equipment, it is crucial to consider the possible features that best suit you and your needs.
Our exercise bike buyers' guide can help you make that decision.
Upright or Recumbent Exercise Bike
Both have benefits and drawbacks, and both give you a cardio workout. For many shoppers, the choice will boil down to personal taste.
The upright exercise bike is just that, upright! Easy to use, and the seat and handle-bars are precisely where you'd expect them to be.
The Recumbent bike design is where you sit in a seat and have the pedals out in front of you. So in effect, you recline slightly in the seat, and the pedals align with your bottom. As you don't need to lean forward over the handlebars, this design may be suitable for those who have back problems.

The Benefits Of Stationary Bikes
Cycling is a great form of exercise for everyone. Regardless of whether you are a seasoned fitness fanatic or just starting on your journey to a healthy lifestyle, a stationary fitness bike is an excellent piece of equipment to invest in. The benefits are endless with an exercise bike, and they include the following; increased muscle strength, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, healthier heart, improved mental health, increased energy levels, improved sleep, plus, you can work out no matter the weather!
Fitness Bike Warranty
With most models and manufacturers (and all the ones we work with), your bike will come with a warranty. Check this carefully to ensure it covers you adequately, as this will ensure if anything goes wrong from a manufacturing point of view (a cracked pipe, broken weld joint, fraying cables etc.), you will at the very least get a replacement part free of charge.
