An exercise bike, stationary bike, or bike trainers have been around since the days of the treadmill and is a great type of cardio machine that offers a great, low-impact cardio workout at the convenience of your own home. An exercise bike has a lot to offer in terms of fitness and definitely helps out areas such as weight loss, body toning specifically in the abs/core, and builds massive muscles on the glutes, quads, and calves.
The exercise bike comes in three main forms depending on the type of workout you want to experience.
- The indoor cycling bike that simulates the feeling of being on the road and helps in training for events such as bicycle tours and triathlons.
- The recumbent bike that adds back support and a more casual workout session.
- The upright exercise bike which requires the person to sit upright and pedal without any back support. The upright bike is positioned more comfortably than the cycling bike and also provides a casual workout.
