Choosing which stationary, exercise or spin bike is right for you can be a daunting task since there are so many, from so many different manufacturers. To make your task a little easier we'll tell you what bike we use at Ride Fit™ and provide you with a couple of great resources where you can do your own research.
We use and are extremely happy with the performance of the Keiser M3 Spin Bike. The M3 is a great performance exercise bike, which is very popular with gyms and fitness centers. It offers a smooth ride, sturdy, is whisper quiet, is easy to use and offers a host of other built in features. The M3 spinning bike also offers an optional computer that measures RPM, power output in watts, kilocalorie expenditure, heart rate (via wireless Polar monitor), trip time, gear (resistance), and trip distance.
But don't just take our word for it. You can find some excellent reviews and information on a whole host of spinning bikes and turbo trainers at one or more of the links below:
According to a New York Times article:
Ride Fit™ workout videos will stop that spin bike collecting dust by providing a fun, entertaining and goal orientated environment to help you stay focused and motivated while working out. Our simple on-screen digital dashboard provides critical ride information (such as resistance, cadence and perceived effort) and a terrain profile with progress indicator shows the user where they are and whatís coming next so rides can be paced appropriately. To provide the most realistic virtual cycling experience possible, Ride Fit™ videos are shot from the first person perspective using bike-mounted video cameras. Users will experience, as closely as can be achieved in an indoor environment, actually being there on the road.
