Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Exercise Bike with Pulse

I have reviewed and tested several bikes and exercise bikes during my career and although I am not a big fun of foldable bikes I understand the need of some people for more room in their flats. To make a long story short, one has really impressed me and its buyers/users across different platforms such as Amazon and Walmart receiving enviable comments and high ratings at an affordable price was definitely the Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse. Although space saver bikes usually mean lower quality, this is not the case with this Exerpeutic stationary bike.

Exerpeutic 300SR Foldable Recumbent Exercise Bike

Finally reviewing stationary bikes for those of you that have space problems in your flats and houses: one that did really impress me and all its users across different platforms (Amazon, Walmart, etc) receiving really high ratings and more than positive comment is for sure the Exerpeutic 300SR Foldable Recumbent Exercise Bike. Although I am not a big fan of this kind of bikes, as foldable usually means somewhat lower quality, this is not true in the case of the Exerpeutic 300SR Foldable Recumbent Exercise bike.

Exercise Bike vs Treadmill

I recently received some emails asking what is best for home fitness: exercise bike or treadmill. There is no doubt these two are among the most popular home exercise equipment, and there is also no doubt that both of them are significant calory burners. However, in order to do the right decision for you you should take in consideration the budget you have at your disposal, the long term sustainability of the equipment, the quality, the type of workout you are expecting and the effectiveness of it and the safety of the machine you are looking to buy.

Marcy Recumbent Mag Cycle – Best Recumbent Exercise Bike

A couple of days ago, a good friend of mine, asked me if I could help him choosing a good quality exercise bike in the "up to 200$" range. As he is a big guy and used to experience problems with his back, I suggested to restrict the research to recumbent bikes as due to his health problems recumbent bikes are much more easy to use and allow for longer workouts. I was a semi-professional cyclist for several years and due to my time restrictions I have been using exercise bikes during the last two to three years. As usual, I started where I could find most user reviews i.e. on Amazon. There I selected all the best selling recumbent bikes in the selected price range with enough user reviews and my extensive research finally led me to the Marcy ME709 Recumbent Mag Cycle.

ProForm 290 SPX Spinning Bike – Best Buy

The ProForm 290 SPX is amongst the highest quality and affordable priced fitness bikes, with a nice and professional design, and if you are looking for a serious solution for indoor cycling training this is probably the best buy you can find. The manufacturer of this incredible piece is Icon Fitness, that is also the manufacturer of more expensive brands such as Nordick Track: this is important to mention as the latter is a bit more expensive but does not give much more for the difference in price.

What are fitness bikes?

As explained by Wikipedia an "exercise bicycle or bike, or stationary bicycle, or Exercycle is a device with saddle, pedals, and some form of handlebars arranged as on a bicycle, but used as exercise equipment rather than transportation. A cycloergometer, cycle ergometer or bicycle ergometer is a stationary bicycle with an ergometer to measure the work done by the exerciser".

Exercise bikes – How it all began

The real indoor cycling as we know it today, was invented in 1987 by the SouthAfrican cyclist Johnny Goldberg, who invited his cyclists' mates for an indoor cycling session, after installing a few exercise bikes in his garage. Later on, precisely in 1989, Johnny started his first fitness bikes center in California, and from this point in time, stationary bike indoor training grew in popularity to what we know today. One of the key milestones in history was probably 2002, when world renowned cyclist Greg Lemond (who won the Tour the france in 1986, 1989 and 1990) started LeMond Fitness, his own company manufacturing fitness bikes for fitness studios. Today, exercise bike training is done in a class environment with trained instructors (certified by some of the best exercise bike manufacturers such as Schwinn, Spinning or by national associations) or train individually at homes, hotels, finess clubs.
