What to Look For in an Exercise Bike

There are many different ways to gain access to an exercise bike, and not all of them include actually purchasing the bike. But for some people, purchasing a bike can be a very good investment, especially if they are committed to using it every single day. That might include people who are in training for some sort of athletic event, people who are going through physical therapy, people who are seeking a low impact aerobic, or people who have begun a daily exercise regiment to go along with their diet.

The most important feature when looking for a stationary bike is comfort. If you cannot tolerate sitting on the seat for longer than a few moments, you won't exercise. If you find it difficult to move the pedals, or you don't like the angle of the handlebars, you won't exercise. The exercise bike should never be an obstacle between you and your ultimate goal of fitness. To this end, you should be prepared to put the exercise bike to the test before you purchase it. Shop for exercise bikes at retail stores, not online, in catalogues, or from the television, unless you are familiar with the brand and model of bike and know it is a good fit for you.

The exercise bike only needs to do one thing-simulate the experience of riding a bike. Don't be suckered into a high-cost exercise bike by lots of additional bells and whistles. The more trendy an item is, the more expensive it will be, and you're ultimately paying for something frivolous. Make a list of the additional features you want, such as an odometer, a speedometer, and a pulse monitor, and then shop for bikes that have those specific features.
