Indoor cycling and indoor bikes have become incredibly popular over the last 20 to 30 years because more and more people are realizing the incredible health benefits that biking offers.
The fact that they don’t have to leave the comfort of their own home makes indoor cycling that much more attractive. At gyms and fitness centers all around the world, indoor cycling and “spin” classes are popping up, helping people live happier and healthier lives.
Indoor bikes aren’t necessarily bikes, at all. They’re stationary, rather than being able to move across the terrain, but still allow you to adjust the resistance in the pedals to raise or lower the level of workout you’re going to get while riding them.
Some indoor bikes have handlebars that move back and forth, helping you get a full-body workout, while others will have stationary handlebars. They can get incredibly complex, with heart rate monitors, TV sets, music players, and even 3D tech to help you visualize the terrain you’re riding on.
Indoor bikes utilize a flywheel with a belt or resistance bands around it that you can adjust, based on your endurance levels.
Getting the workout a good, long bike ride can give you without leaving the comfort of your home is easy with an indoor bike.
