Exercise Bikes in Rhode Island

Rhode Island residents who ride an exercise bike for 30 minutes or more will burn about 260 calories per session. If the bike is ridden for a longer period of time, more intensely, or more often, a greater number of calories will be burned. Exercise bikes offer an ideal cardiovascular workout that is gentle on spine, hips, knees, and ankles. Exercise bikes can be ridden safely by persons of any age group. Regular exercise has been proven to increase health and longevity.

There are two main types of exercise bikes. The style most familiar to many people is the upright. This bike is similar to traditional bicycles, offering a small padded seat for the rider to sit upright on, with pedals directly below the seat and handlebars out in front. Upright bikes may deliver the best workout to the gluteal muscles, since the rider's leg extends full-length to complete the cycle.

The other type of exercise bike is the recumbent. This bike offers a bigger, chair-like seat that supports the back and offers extra stability. The rider cycles from the reclined position, with legs out in front on pedals that are positioned so as to put minimal stress on the back. The rider's weight is evenly distributed over a larger area, and the position of the cyclist puts very little pressure on the spine. The recumbent bike is most often used during physical therapy for patients recovering from surgery. In addition, this bike is the best choice for persons suffering from arthritis, orthopedic conditions, or who are more than 50 pounds overweight.

Many features are available with exercise bikes, including resistance levels, built-in workout programs, and heart-rate control. Before purchasing a bike with the desired features, Rhode Island residents need to verify that the bike comes with at least a one year warranty on parts and labor. This will help keep the bike running with minimal expense.

Exercise bikes are becoming increasingly popular as individuals who are committed to a healthy lifestyle are discovering their many features and benefits.
