Exercise Bikes in Nebraska

If you are in Nebraska and looking for something that gives you an excellent cardiovascular workout, look no further. Exercise bikes offer a great workout, without the jarring impact on knees, hips and ankles that occurs with aerobics and running. An indoor exercise bike is even easier on the joints, especially the knees, than an outdoor bike. And to top it off, you can easily watch TV, listen to music, or keep an eye on the kids while getting your workout in. While gym memberships are declining as people look for ways to cut costs, use of home exercise bikes are increasing as cyclists discover the ease of use and physical benefits.

Several different types of exercise bikes are available. The upright bike is similar to a traditional bicycle, with a padded saddle-style seat, pedals placed directly underneath the body, and handlebars in the front of the bike. Most people are already familiar with this style of bike, especially if they have ridden an outdoor bike.

The recumbent bike is larger, with a chair-like seat that supports the back and offers extra stability. The seat puts the rider in a reclined position, with weight evenly distributed over a larger area, providing lumbar support to the back. Pedals that are placed out in front of the bike are situated in a way that puts little stress on the back. The recumbent type of exercise bike is ideal for people who have back problems, suffer from arthritis or other orthopedic conditions, or are more than 50 pounds overweight. Many physical therapists recommend the recumbent bike to their patients who are recovering from injuries or medical procedures, because of the minimal stress to spine and joints.

Exercise bikes are considered one of the safest types of exercise equipment, and can be easily used by all ages. They are a great choice for anyone in Nebraska wanting to increase physical fitness or achieve ideal weight goals.
