The Different Types of Exercise Bikes and Their Benefits

January 3, 2024

Exercise bikes have grown in popularity due to their ability to provide an incredible indoor workout. They offer exceptional convenience, versatility, and efficiency, providing a great cardio workout suitable for all fitness levels. Thanks to today’s modern technology and innovation, exercise bikes come in many forms, offering varying workout experiences and benefits. Ensure your gym offers the best indoor biking exercises and experiences by exploring the different types of exercise bikes and their benefits.

Upright Bikes

Upright bikes are designed with the seat positioned directly over the pedals, closely mirroring the structure of a traditional bicycle and requiring the user to sit upright when cycling. The upright design enables vigorous workouts as it encourages the use of core and upper body muscles while pedaling, offering a comprehensive fitness experience.

TRUE’s 900 Upright Bike provides a compact, space-saving upright bike with additional benefits to the upright biking experience, including multiple resistance level options and safe, easy bike entry. With TRUE’s 900 Upright Bike, your gym members can enjoy the benefits of the upright bike’s low-impact, high-intensity workouts along with TRUE’s innovative designs and engineering.

Indoor Cycling Bikes

Indoor cycling bikes are synonymous with high-intensity, sweat-inducing workouts and are similar to an upright exercise bike. However, indoor cycling bikes use a heavy flywheel mechanism that mimics the feel of riding a road bike, offering an authentic cycling experience. Indoor cycling bikes allow light and intense workouts and are perfect for interval training, helping users burn calories and improve cardiovascular health.

Recumbent Bikes

Recumbent bikes offer a more relaxed workout experience, providing ergonomic comfort and enhanced accessibility. The distinguishing feature of commercial recumbent exercise bikes is the chair-like seat with back support, allowing users to recline while pedaling. This design reduces strain on the back and joints, making it ideal for seniors, people with physical limitations, or those recovering from injuries. Despite the relaxed posture they make possible, recumbent bikes still provide a powerful cardiovascular workout and are great for toning the lower body.

TRUE’s 900 Recumbent Bike is an advanced design of commercial recumbent exercise bikes that offers self-generating capabilities, single-stage drive systems, and quick access controls. This bike elevates the benefits of recumbent bikes, enhancing the comfort and joy of the experience.

These different types of exercise bikes provide varying benefits that offer your gym members numerous potential workout experiences that align with their specific needs and fitness goals. At TRUE, we offer a diverse selection of commercial exercise bikes featuring upright and recumbent designs that will provide plenty of bike options for your gym. Check out our selection and gift your members a beneficial cardio workout.
