UPRIGHT BIKE BENEFITS
Generally the most popular type of stationary bike, an upright cycle is considered the closest you can get to everyday outdoor riding. Ideal for beginners and seasoned cyclists alike, the upright offers a relatively inexpensive option for facilities seeking to offer high quality aerobic training gear without breaking the bank.
Boasting similarities to a road bike, you can either sit or stand whilst pedalling on an upright, allowing you to vary the muscles you target. Be wary of your posture though! It’s all too easy to lean forward and slip into a slouching position when riding, which can cause back pain over time. Large consoles and displays keep users informed and connected throughout your workout. Upright bikes have a small footprint too, taking up less space in your facility (room for more gym equipment!) For those who are short on room, the upright is your better option here.
Choose an upright if:
• You’re training on a budget
•You want to target multiple muscle groups
• Your workout area is short on space
• You want built-in workouts
