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.
