The Stamina® Magnetic Resistance Recumbent Bike is designed to put you in a semi-reclined position so your workout focuses on all the major muscles in your hips, thighs, and buttocks. Stationary cycling is one of the most effective low-impact aerobic exercises for increasing your metabolism for more efficient calorie and fat burning without the impact on your joints. Because it is an impact-free activity, stationery cycling can be a lifelong form of exercise. For effective aerobic exercise, work within your target heart rate zone (70% to 85% of your maximum heart rate). Stamina’s Magnetic Resistance Recumbent Bike features the adjustable heavy-weighted flywheel resistance and belt drive train, so your bike pedals smoothly at any resistance level. The magnetic resistance is easily adjusted with a grip-edged, 8-position dial knob that can be easily reached and adjusted without interrupting your workout. The oversized foot pedals and adjustable foot straps hold your feet securely to improve pulling motion while pedaling. Exercise bikes without this feature have the pushing motion only and not the more advantageous pushing/pulling motion.The Stamina Recumbent Bike takes up much less space than other recumbent exercise bikes with a footprint of just 45” x 24”. And the Stamina Recumbent Bike gives you value. You’ll find that it is as well designed and constructed as other more expensive recumbent bikes so you can sit back and get a smooth, quiet, low-impact, yet full-body workout. The electronic, battery-operated monitor keeps you motivated during your workout by displaying speed, distance, time, number of revolutions, tempo, calories burned, and RPM. Aero handlebars allow you to choose various riding positions that are comfortable for you. The seat is padded and adjustable to fit any size rider.
