Exercise Bikes in South Carolina

Many South Carolina residents who enjoy an active lifestyle participate in aerobics or running. However, since these types of cardiovascular workouts can have a jarring impact on hips, knees, and ankles, some people in South Carolina are finding exercise bikes to be their preference. Exercise bikes offer an excellent cardiovascular workout with minimal impact to joints. A person can ride as gently or intensely as desired because of the resistance settings. In addition, since many exercise bikes are at home or at the office, it is easier than ever to be consistent with a workout routine.

There are two main types of exercise bikes available; the upright and the recumbent. Upright exercise bikes are similar to a traditional outdoor bike, in that they have a smaller seat that the rider sits upright on. Foot pedals are down below the seat, with handlebars out in front. Most people are familiar with the upright style. Recumbent bikes offer a bigger, chair-like seat that supports the back and offers extra stability. The rider cycles from a reclined position, with weight evenly distributed over a larger area. The comfortable seat provides lumbar support, and foot pedals out in front of the seat require the rider to extend both legs. The recumbent bike is best for people who are more than fifty pounds overweight, are experiencing back problems, or have orthopedic conditions. Each type of bike offers unique advantages to the cyclist.

Before purchasing an exercise bike, the rider should consider weight limit to ensure that the cyclist will be within the designated range. Also, a good warranty in place at the time of purchase can save time and money if things happen to go wrong with the bike. Warranties should cover parts and frames for at least one year, and since a technician often needs to come to the house to make repairs, having a labor provision in place is also wise. Before making the purchase, check out the store's return policy. Double check that they will issue a full refund if the bike is not satisfactory. Keeping these things in mind will help ensure that the purchase of a new exercise bike is a success.

Exercise bikes are perfect for people who are desiring low-impact, cardiovascular exercise.
