Exercise Bikes. What are they best used for?

Exercise Bikes are increasingly in demand as the population and demographics of Auckland changes.

Riding exercise bikes works out your hamstrings, calves, hip flexors and quadriceps. …  The difference between upright stationary bikes and recumbent exercycles is that on a recumbent bike, your legs are primarily responsible for powering the machine, but on an upright bike, your core and upper body share the work load with your legs. This is an excellent way to regain or retain low impact fitness.  Plus has the added benefit of calorie burning . A half hour on a stationary bicycle helps up your daily calorie burn.

What to look for in exercise bikes:

Look to make sure there is an adjustable seat both up and down and back and forwards.

Look to see that the exercycle is stable and that you can get on and off with ease.

Sit on the exercise bikes to find one that has a comfortable seat.

The goal is to feel comfortable and make the exercise as stress free as you can by having the right bike and the set up as ergonomically correct as can be.

Good cycling!

We have just added some new EXERCISE BIKES to our stock for rental, hire or purchasing.

Exercise bikes remain one of the best products for  rental equipment. We at fit2run are very particular about the quality of our exercycles.

First and foremost we recognise the importance of making sure the exercycles are easy to use, adjustable, comfortable and particularly well balanced. There is nothing worse than getting on and off a bike and finding that it is unstable!

As  fitness equipment experts we know what people need when it comes to  exercise bikes and what to suggest that will meet your needs.


We are alway very happy to have a good chat to our customers and this is so important when it comes to making sure you are going to get what is the right piece of fitness equipment for your needs and for your safety.

This is particularly important if you are using something like an exercise bike after some sort of injury or surgery. We assist many people who are looking at knee replacements and post operative recovery.

If you are interested to talk a little more with us feel free to call us any time  and we will talk you through the different options for rent or sale.

Your Home Fitness Equipment Spring Routine

SPRING has arrived and with it the momentum to get fit and  sort out your Home Fitness Equipment workout. 

It won’t be too long now until the season we all look forward to –  summer – which is just around the corner.

The question for Spring is what sort of home fitness equipment is best going to work for you to get yourself in good shape for summer – and look stunning in that swimsuit or in that lycra gear!

The Treadmill is ever popular particularly with the unpredictable spring weather and its tendency to rain and prevent outside training.  It gives you good opportunity to keep up the mileage and the walking or jogging through these months and to be ready for  the summer.

Or, if you are like many of us rowers who can’t wait to be out paddling there is the option of hiring of a rowing machine - More and more we can see paddling becoming a water activity many choose.  Not only with the school teams who are in full swing preparing for the Mardi competition, but also all the paddle boarders out there on our glorious harbour.  Auckland has one of the best harbours for these sort of activities, which is no surprise given how stunning and accessible our harbour is.

Then there is the Exercise bike – such a good training option for those who love  cycling and can’t get out on the road or trails as they will in the summer months.

Fit2run has just added new exercycles to the fleet either for rental or purchase.

Whatever your personal exercise routine is, make sure to keep up the fitness for the summer season ahead, and if  at fit2run we can help by getting you going we will be very happy to assist.

Call us on 09 281 3541 if you would like further information on our great range of equipment.
