Stationary cycle, exercise bicycle, exercise bike, studio cycle, indoor bike or exercycle? At Excy, we don’t care what you call it! We just love the amazing health benefits of this staple piece of exercise equipment and its low-impact and high-gain cardio exercise advantages.
Whether an upright stationary cycle, a recumbent stationary cycle, or even a bike trainer, it’s hard to ignore the potential benefits of these machines when used effectively and regularly to help tackle increasing obesity rates and obesity related diseases (diabetes and cardiac diseases). It’s also hard to ignore saving a ton of time and sparing the hassle of going to and from the gym.
As we highlighted in our post “Top Three Exercise Bikes on Amazon,” there are so many options to consider when buying an exercise cycle with 817 results popping up for the term “exercise bike” on Amazon. Since it can be overwhelming, we wanted to share a post we came across titled “Top 20 Home Exercise Bike Reviews,” where one man devoted several weeks to narrow down his selection and finally purchase the right indoor bicycle. He does an outstanding job of breaking down what he sees as the best upright exercise bike (FitDesk FDX 2.0 Desk Exercise Bike), the best recumbent bike overall (Schwinn 270 Recumbent Bike), the best value for an indoor cycle (Sunny Health & Fitness Pro), and the best full-body exercise bike (Schwinn AD6 Airdyne). He also provides a thorough Exercise Bike Buying Guide. This is by far the best 2015 exercise bike buying guide we’ve seen.
We’ve been working very hard to perfect this fitness favorite with a focus on a full-body portable exercise bike that makes it incredibly easy to fit fitness anywhere. We are especially fans of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts for stationary bikes as an amazing way to spin your way to a trimmer physique, build stamina, and bust boredom workout blues. This is an area we believe we will truly shine!
Excy is doing something very different and we look forward to head-to-head reviews with today’s stationary exercise bikes, but also any total body cardio and strength training exercise machine.
