Exercise Bikes in Kenya
Exercise bikes are great tools to get you started on your fitness journey. You can use them for intense workouts or for light intensity steady state cardio. However, there are various exercise bikes in Kenya, and you have to pick one.
Here are the 4 exercise bikes in Kenya and how you can use them.
1. Stationary Bike
A stationary bike is an easy way to get a workout in before you go to work or after work. They offer a ton of advantages from better cardiovascular health, strengthening your lower body muscles and even improving your endurance. Another great advantage is that they are a low intensity workout and as such do not strain your joints compared to other bikes.
Also known as spin bikes, they are great for spin classes and your clients will enjoy them.
- Workout whenever
- Can be used by the entire family
- Does not strain the joints
2. Recumbent Bikes Exercise Bikes
Another bike you can consider for your home gym is a recumbent bike. However, unlike other exercise bikes, they have their audiences.
First, recumbent bikes are great for rehabilitation and older users. Yes younger people can still benefit but older users are more likely to gain.
According to PUBMED, the recumbent bike has been found to increase strength in the glutes, hamstrings and calves. The ergonomic reclining chair also reduces the strain on your upper body allowing you to focus on your lower body.
Pros:Includes more hamstring activation
3. Upright Bike
An upright bike is simply the upright version of a recumbent bike. However, unlike the recumbent bike, the upright bike engages more quads than hamstrings. It also strains a bit of your upper body as you do not have the ergonomic seat like you do on the recumbent bike.
4. Air Bike
Finally we have the air bike or the assault bike. These are great for people looking for more intense workouts. They are loud and as such only work with larger gym spaces for people with large compounds.
However, they do have their pros in that they are best for increased heart rate, they work on your upper body (arms and back) as well as your lower body.
They are great for a commercial gym or a crossfit gym but not so much for a home gym.
These are all the exercise bikes in Nairobi. We hope you find one that meets your needs and as always we are your fitness equipment supplier.
