Exercise bikes are a brilliant way to increase endurance, lose weight and to gain fitness. As a low impact exercise, unlike running on a treadmill, riding an exercise bike is ideal for people who want to maintain or improve their level of fitness with minimum impact upon their joints.
Different types of exercise have differing effects on the body. Aerobic activities such as running or jogging can be extremely taxing on your joints. In contrast, a stationary exercise bike will help you to get the blood rushing through your veins without putting unwanted stress through your joints, meaning the risk of injury is greatly reduced.
Much easier to use than an elliptical cross trainer or running machine, exercise bikes are the ideal piece of equipment if you are new to fitness training and want to ease yourself into the routine of keeping fit and staying healthy.
Just half an hour of riding a stationary bike a day will help to dramatically increase your body's calorie burning capabilities. Continually burning a greater number of calories a day will help you to take off weight more easily and mean that it is easier for you to stay in shape.
As a cardiovascular exercise, regularly riding an exercise bike may also help to lower your blood pressure, regulate blood sugar levels and even help to prevent heart attacks by reducing the build-up of fat in your arteries. In short, simply getting on an exercise bike and pedaling hard for around 30 minutes a day may result in you extending your life for years.
