Looking for a great cardio workout that won’t be too hard on your joints? An exercise bike may be right for you.

Looking for home gym equipment but not sure where to begin? Not sure what the difference between an exercise bike and a spin bike is? Here’s what you need to know about shopping for exercise bikes.

Are exercise bikes good for weight loss?

Diet and exercise are the key factors that drive healthy, sustainable weight loss. Weight loss requires a calorie deficit, which means you are burning more calories than your body is taking in with food. Exercise pushes your body to become more active, which requires more calories, whilst a balanced, healthy diet is a way of controlling calorie intake.

Cycling on an exercise bike is a low impact cardiovascular workout. This means it will increase your heartrate without putting stress on your joints. Not only is this an efficient way to burn fat and lose weight, it will also help strengthen your heart, lungs, circulatory system and other muscles in your body.

Working out on an exercise bike, especially at higher intensity levels, is a great way to burn calories and build strength in your muscles. Muscle building exercises have additional weight loss effects because they increase your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which means you will be burning more calories when you are not working out.

How does an exercise bike compare to a treadmill?

Before you begin comparing different types of home gym equipment it is worth considering what activities you enjoy or what types of exercise you are already comfortable with. After all, the best exercise equipment ultimately comes down to whether you are motivated enough to use it regularly and form healthy workout habits. The more you enjoy using the machine, the more likely you are stick with it.

Exercise bikes and treadmills are both excellent options for intensive, cardiovascular workouts. This means that using either machine is an effective way of losing weight and burning fat.

Using an exercise bike puts less stress on your joints, bones and connective tissues than using a treadmill, whether you are running or walking. This helps lessen the risk of injury (which helps you stick to a regular exercise routine) and may make exercise bikes a better choice for people managing chronic injuries or pain.

If space is limited, exercise bikes tend to take up less space and are easier to move.

Exercise bikes VS. spin bikes: what’s the difference?

There are two main types of home gym bikes; spin bikes and exercise bikes (sometimes called upright bikes or stationary bikes). Whilst these bikes differ in general design and features, both are great for doing cycling workouts that will improve your cardio fitness, promote weight loss and help tone muscles.

Spin bikes more closely resemble the form factor of a normal bicycle and you ride them using the forward lean posture of regular bicycle use. Many spin bikes are designed with strong pedals that can support standing and riding. Exercise bikes are designed for users to sit upright as they ride, which can be easier on your shoulders, neck and lower back.

Exercise bikes are easy to use, comfortable to sit on and tend to come with more built-in technologies for tracking progress and customizing your workouts. Spin bikes provide manual control of riding intensity and allows your fitness to progress further. Spin bikes lack pre-installed programs, which may make them harder for beginners.

How do I buy the best exercise bike for me?

Before buying new equipment it is always worth getting measurements of the available workout space. Bikes tend to be smaller than other home gym machines and many models have wheels on the base so you can more easily move them aside when they aren’t in use.

When comparing different exercise bikes it is worth thinking about the comfort of the seat, especially for longer sessions. Upright bikes tend to have larger, more supportive seats than spin bikes. Some models will let you swap out the seat or you can buy a comfortable seat cover.

Models that use a magnetic field to adjust the intensity of the workout tend to be quieter than bikes with air resistance or tension bands/belts. The resistance on magnetic models also tends to be smoother to adjust.

Exercise bikes with comfortable and secure foot straps on the pedals are useful for keeping your feet in place. Secure straps also help with pulling pedals up and well as pushing them forward and down, which helps on high resistance settings.
