Stationary Exercise Bikes - Part 1 of 3

July 20, 2012 09:56 Richard S
Travelling a lot, I get to try a lot of different exercise equipment at hotels I stay.  By far, my favorite equipment is the stationary bike!  Some of the bikes I have ridden are equivalent to economy class on some airlines; small seat, tv, hot, smelly, etc!  I recently had a trip to the US and had the opportunity to ride 3 different stationary bikes.   

Platinum Club Series Upright Lifecycle by LifeFitness.

I rode the Inspire 7" LCD bike.  Like all bikes I have ridden, I always tend to find the seat too far forward.  I am not that tall either, 5'10" (179cm).  The bike comes with 25 different resistance levels (generator resistance system) and can support a max weight of 181 kgs (wow).

What also amazes me are the consoles and LifeFitness ranks well up there!  Firstly, the amount of information you are able to record is amazing:

  • Elapsed Time
  • Time Remaining
  • Time in Zone
  • Time of Day
  • Speed (mph/km/h)
  • Distance
  • Distance Climbed
  • Distance Remaining
  • Pace
  • Heart Rate
  • Target Heart Rate
  • Calories
  • Calories per Hour
  • Watts
  • METs
  • Time

I did not know it at the time of riding the bike but apparently you can record all the data and upload it to (only available with Engage and Inspire consoles).

    I prefer swimming to riding a bike- my knees are hurting after a longer ride.
