Exercise Bikes in North Carolina

Residents of North Carolina who are looking for ways to cut costs may want to consider eliminating the monthly gym membership fee, using the money they would regularly spend to work out on a one-time investment in an exercise bike. Home exercise bikes offer many advantages, including the convenience of working out at home and the freedom to multitask while exercising. In addition, they deliver an excellent cardiovascular workout that is very low-impact on the hips, knees, and ankles. Exercise bikes are gaining increased popularity as people who are serious about being physically fit discover the benefits of cycling.

There are several basic kinds of exercise bikes. Upright exercise bikes are similar in construction to an outdoor bike. They feature a small, padded seat, pedals directly underneath the seat, and handlebars out in front of the bike. Cycling experts maintain that upright bikes work the gluteal muscles more thoroughly than recumbent bikes, since the rider can fully extend the hips through the rotation cycle.

Recumbent bikes are usually bigger, with a large, chair-like seat that supports the back and offers extra stability. The rider cycles from a reclined position, with body weight evenly distributed over a larger area. The back and buttocks are fully supported, and pedals are placed in front of the bike, requiring the cyclist to extend their legs horizontally. Recumbent bikes are ideal for people who experience back problems, are more than 50 pounds overweight, or suffer from arthritis or orthopedic conditions.

Before making a decision on a particular exercise bike, the rider should take into consideration the features desired. Lowest-priced models should include the basic features of quiet handling, workout resistance, and stability when riding vigorously. Models that are priced a little higher ought to have some built-in workout programs, heart-rate control, and magnetic resistance. Exercise bikes that are in the highest price range should include a warranty that extends over one year, push-button resistance, and a large number of built-in workout programs. Researching the different features of available models will help the individual in North Carolina find the ideal exercise bike.

Exercise bikes are fast becoming the most preferred way to obtain a great cardiovascular workout, due to the broad range of styles and features offered.
