Here’s 5 additional benefits of having an exercise bike in your home gym:

  1.  Strengthens legs and the lower body muscles
  2.  Gentle on Your Joints
  3.  Improves posture
  4.  Burns calories
  5.  Saves up space at home

Strengthens Legs and the Lower Body Muscles

Exercising on a stationary bike is perfect for toning your legs, thighs, and buttocks. It can also work the muscles in your core, and glutes.

When you increase the resistance of your exercise bike, you are adding to the intensity of your workout. A low resistance level is good for warming up and for improving endurance.


Gentle on Your Joints

The exercise bike is a low-impact workout that allows you to work out without putting a lot of pressure on joints and muscles. This makes it the perfect workout for when you're recovering from injury or have an injury that prevents you from participating in impact-bearing sports.


Improved Posture

Cycling is an excellent way to improve your posture, as long as you practice good form, meaning sitting tall with a neutral spine and pulling your shoulders down and back while keeping them relaxed

The physical motion of grasping the handlebars and pedaling keeps your full body engaged which helps strengthen your lower back muscles.


Burns Calories

You can easily spend 30 minutes or more on HIIT workout with cycling, which not only will burn more calories, but also make you feel great!

A 150-pound person biking for half an hour with “light effort” burns about 170 calories. The calorie burn for “moderate effort” rises to 239 calories.
