Gold's Gym Review

Best Exercise Bikes

To help you find the Best Exercise Bikes, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth Gold's Gym Review.

Exercise bikes, also known as stationary bikes, are a great way to get an excellent cardiovascular workout at home when it best fits into your schedule. Exercise bikes also strengthen and nicely tone your legs, butt, stomach, and other muscles, and do so with less impact on the knees and lower back than other forms of exercise.

There are two general types of exercise bikes for home use: upright bikes and recumbent bikes. The upright exercise bike is similar to your standard road bike, with a saddle seat, and pedals positioned directly underneath the legs. Upright bikes allow for more movement, such as riding while standing on the pedals, or in a racing position, which can give you a more strenuous workout.

Cost:

From $299 to $399

Gold's Gym started in 1965 and has since expanded globally to a well respected commercial gym for serious body builders and exercise fanatics. Unfortunately, the home equipment doesn't provide the same quality that we would expect with the Gold's Gym name on it.

Gold's Gym exercise bikes are super low priced and as a result seem to come with a lot of issues. You can anticipate a no-bells-and-whistles, standard exercise bike with fewer pre-programmed workouts then most other brands. On the other hand they do feature a built in fan and an adjustable seat.

Durability and equipment issues are the largest issues of the Gold's Gym exercise bikes. We found numerous complaints of bad or missing assembly instructions, extending setup time to hours or sometimes days. Many customers who have the exercise bike 90 days or more report serious complaints about quality, any many of the bikes are unrepairable.

Equipment overview:

  • Type of Exercise Bikes: Recumbent and Upright
  • Price Range: $299 - $399
  • Different Models: 2
  • Financing Available: No
  • Weight Capacity: 250 lbs
  • Return Policy: No
  • Guarantee: 90 days
  • Shipping: Free

Priced well below the average for home exercise bikes, we weren't surprised that the quality of the equipment was less than satisfactory. The guarantee is too short to manage the quality issues that seem to come with these bikes. We recommend you shop for an exercise bike from a higher ranked provider with a better durability history.

Continued from above

A recumbent exercise bike is more like sitting in a padded chair with back support. The pedals are situated straight ahead like a recliner. Recumbent bikes provide more comfort and ease of use, especially for those with back problems or who feel unstable sitting high off the ground.

Recumbent bikes can also encourage a less intense workout, which is good for those people looking to gently exercise at their own pace. In the end, choosing a recumbent bike or an upright bike is ultimately a matter of preference to the user.

Several different brands of exercise bikes exist today and they range greatly in cost and quality. Before you make the move to purchase an exercise bike, consider the following:

  • Weight Capacity.  What is the maximum body weight allowed on the exercise bike
  • Cost.  What is the price range for the exercise bikes offered? How do these prices compare with other brands?
  • Return Policy.  If you're not satisfied, does the company enable you to return the exercise bike for a full refund?
  • Guarantee.  If a piece or part of the exercise bike breaks, does the company offer any guarantee for replacement?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best exercise bikes available today. We hope these reviews help you find a healthier, leaner you!
