Upright Cycles

If you want the benefits of cycling without the outside elements, one of our upright stationary bikes is for you. From the surge in spin classes to more and more people tuning in to the Tour de France, bicycling is more popular than ever. Riding a bike works to tone your legs, heart and lungs while burning calories to help you lose weight. In this respect it gives results similar to treadmills or ellipticals, although with the added comfort of sitting. At Kmart, you can find durable stationary cycles from well-known brands like Schwinn, Stamina and ProForm to get started on the road to better fitness.

Get toned legs and a slimmer stomach with upright stationary bikes

Today, cardiovascular exercise is more important than ever. That's because we've become less active and more sedentary than ever before; we drive to work, where we sit at a desk before driving home and plopping on the couch. An easy way to get yourself moving again is with one of these upright stationary bikes. Put one in your living room, bedroom, basement or garage, and eliminate all those excuses about not wanting to go outside. Plus, enjoy the ability to work out in front of the TV so you can catch up on your shows while you sweat.

The first question to ask is probably whether an exercise cycle is the right piece of equipment for you. Upright cycles do a great job of working the muscles of your thighs. Because cycles involve moving only your legs, they don't stimulate as many muscles as various treadmills and ellipticals do. There are some cycles, however, that feature moving handles to give you an upper-body workout while you pedal. One of the benefits of cycles is that they are a low-impact machine, which means they're quiet and gentle on your knees.

One important feature to look for in an exercise bike is a heart rate monitor. Heart monitors are vital exercise cycle accessories that tell you exactly how fast your heart is beating. This is helpful to monitor your heart rate remains within the recommended range as suggested by a health professional while you exercise.

There are two kinds of exercise cycles. Find upright cycles, which give you the experience of riding a real bicycle. You can also find recumbent exercise bikes, however, which feature a lower seat with the pedals more in front of you than underneath you. Recumbent bikes have a back rest, so many people find them more comfortable. However, they also take up more floor space than an upright cycle. Ultimately the choice comes down to your needs and preferences.

Whether you're stuck indoors due to bad weather or just don't feel like leaving the house, an upright exercise cycle is a great way to fit in your workout without leaving home. Once you discover the convenience of working up a sweat in front of the TV, you might never have to join a gym again. For a wide variety of exercise bikes, check out our selection here at Kmart; where we stock everything you need to get in the best shape of your life.
