Exercise Bikes in South Dakota

Many South Dakota residents who are in their senior years are discovering the benefits of riding an exercise bike to obtain cardiovascular exercise. Most people who are elderly feel they are a little too old to be out pounding the pavement in snow, sleet, and hail, so cycling on an exercise bike from the comfort of their own living room is more appealing to them. In addition, a person can multitask while working out. It is easy to read a book, watch TV, or talk on the phone while getting their exercise. There are many benefits to riding an exercise bike.

Several different types of exercise bikes are available. The recumbent bike offers a larger, chair-like seat that supports the back and offers extra stability. The rider cycles from a reclining position, with feet on pedals that are out in front. The comfortable seat provides excellent lumbar support, and body weight is distributed evenly over a larger surface. The recumbent bike is recommended for people who have back problems, arthritis, or are more than 50 pounds overweight. The second option, the upright bike, is similar to a traditional bicycle. It has a smaller, padded seat for the rider to sit upright on. The foot pedals are placed directly underneath the body, and the handlebars are out in front. Experienced cyclists say this may work the gluteal muscles better than the recumbent, since the rider fully extends both legs through the cycle.

When choosing an exercise bike, a good understanding of the available features will aid in the selection process. Minimal features for an exercise bike should include quiet handling, workout resistance, and a seat that adjusts easily to accommodate the rider's height. Bikes with a few more options may include magnetic resistance and heart-rate control. Top-of-the-line exercise bikes offer such things as push-button resistance control, a longer warranty, and a large number of built-in workout programs. There are many features available, in a wide array of combinations.

A person in South Dakota of any age can benefit from riding an exercise bike.
