Looking for effective cardio exercises at home? Spinning on a stationary bike is a good option for you. And riding indoors keeps you from slick roads. As your cadence increases, it ratchets up resistance accordingly for a seamless sweat.
Smart indoor workout equipment like MERACH S09 Auto-Resistance Bike make your home workout dream come true. It takes cycling up a notch with its smart auto-resistance technology. Comfortable yet challenging, it allows you to stream immersive fitness games on the MERACH app or watch movies while working out!
2. Non-Equipment Aerobic Exercises
If you have no equipment or plan to invest anything, you can still fire up your cardiovascular fitness. Your body is your gym.
Some easy non-equipment workouts like high knees, burpees, jumping jacks, and mountain climbers are fabulous HIIT exercises at home using just your body weight. Some gentle exercises, like slow flow yoga and stretching, not only help find your inner zen but also provide active recovery between cardio bursts.
You can also turn up some fun music or watch something entertaining to make these at-home no equipment workouts fly by!
Mini stepper workouts are excellent training for burning calories and engaging your leg muscles like the glutes and quadriceps. Its compact size takes up less room than a large stair climber or elliptical machine while working the same muscle groups. And MERACH makes it even better! The MERACH S27 Mini Under-Desk Bike allows you to pedal during work calls or Netflix binges.
On rest days or low-impact recovery periods, this indoor workout equipment can help you maintain a lower resistance level and focus on a consistent stepping rhythm in your daily workout routine.
Imagine gliding through calm waters, the rhythmic swoosh of the oars propelling you toward your goals. Comfortable, right? Our MERACH Q1S Electromagnetic Smart Rower makes it real. When performed correctly, home rowing engages 86% of the muscles in your body. Research also shows rowing improves cardiovascular fitness by increasing VO2 max and lower blood pressure. It's also easier on the joints than running.
If you're looking to do home workouts to increase your overall fitness, it would be wise to invest in an affordable home rowing machine first.
For adults who love running, walking, and interval training, a treadmill lets you rack up miles in comfort, ditch the weather worries, and focus on what you love – running, walking, or even interval training.

Whether you walk or run, the MERACH T03 Auto-Incline Treadmill keeps things interesting with exciting gamified app courses and automatic incline adjustment to simulate hill terrain throughout your cold winter months.
If you want to build muscle and boost your heart rate at home, you may need to do some alternative exercises between rowing and squatting. But is there a machine that puts these two workouts in one? Look no further than the MERACH R07 2-in-1 Squat Rowing Machine. This indoor workout equipment comes with a complete muscle shaping system, targeting almost all of your lower body's muscles, like your glutes and thighs with ease to strengthen your entire core.
