Exercise bikes (or stationary bikes) are a popular method of exercise that replicates riding a bicycle. They are simple to use and work well in both commercial contexts and at home. Different types of exercise bikes depend on people’s fitness goals and workout preferences. Orbit Fitness stocks an excellent range of exercise bikes, so you can find the ones that suit you best.

What is an exercise bike?

An exercise bike is a machine used for cardiovascular exercise. It aims to emulate the experience of riding a bicycle. Exercise bikes remain stationary whilst the users operate the pedals against the resistance generated by the machine. Doing so works various muscles and causes the heart to pump blood into different body parts. For this reason it’s a great option for cardio and muscle strengthening. Typically, exercise bikes have adjustable settings for their seating and the resistance level offered. This allows the user to cater the experience to their individual preferences and fitness goals. Exercise bikes are equally suited to beginners trying to get some fitness back or more advanced users trying out High Intensity Interval (HIIT) workouts.

How to use an exercise bike

Using an exercise bike is a simple process, but may vary based on the type. With any kind of exercise bike, you should always adjust the settings. This includes finding the correct seat height and resistance level. Then you can continue to pedal at a level of intensity that suits your fitness level and goals. There are different workouts to choose from, depending on your preferences. Some workout programs may involve exercising for longer at a more leisurely pace. Other regimes could be focused on providing a higher level of exercise intensity in shorter bursts. It all depends on your circumstances and what suits you best.

Types of exercise bikes

There are different types of exercise bikes to suit people’s varying preferences. The main factors that differentiate them are how they generate resistance and the position in which they seat the user. Your fitness goals will often be a good guideline for which type of exercise bike is best for you. The four broad categories of exercise bikes to be aware of are upright bikes, recumbent bikes, spin bikes and air bikes.

Upright bikes

Upright exercises bikes are built to provide a comfortable riding experience. They allow the user to keep their back straight and maintain a proper posture throughout their workout. Upright bikes work well for longer, more frequent workouts. Browse Orbit Fitness’s selection of upright bikes to find the one that suits you.

Recumbent bikes

Recumbent bikes allow people to exercise in a posture that lets them lean back. These are the best options for people recovering from injury or dealing with recurring back pain. They also have back rests for additional support, meaning they put less strain on the body. Recumbent bikes provide an excellent option for the elderly and those with limitations to their mobility. Check out Orbit Fitness’s array of recumbent exercise bikes to see if one suits you.

Spin bikes

Spin bikes are known for most effectively emulating the experience of riding a bicycle on the road. When using a spin bike, the user takes a more forward-leaning position. This helps to add to the intensity to the workout and keep the body moving. There are different types of spin bikes based on how the resistance for the exercise is generated. If you’re interested, look at some of the available spin bikes from Orbit Fitness.

Air bikes

Air bikes bring a high level of intensity to your workout. They have a flywheel with a large fan. As you pedal an air bike, you generate more resistance. The movement is very smooth, making it more a low impact motion. This makes it better for anyone trying to rehabilitate after an injury. But it’s also suitable for higher levels of intensity as well. Look through Orbit Fitness’s range of air bikes to find one that’s perfect for you.

Benefits of using an exercise bike

Exercise bikes bring a range of benefits to users. They provide a great form of exercise that is adjustable to all fitness levels. Exercise bikes are a great option for maintaining both physical and mental health. Regularly using an exercise bike can help you lose weight, build strength, increase fitness and release endorphins that lower stress.

Cardiovascular health

Using exercise bikes is a great way to keep your heart healthy. Doing so causes the heart to pump blood into various areas of the body. By making the heart work regularly, you lower the risk of heart disease and have better stamina. And exercising regularly helps keep your body fat lower, which also benefits the heart.

Mental health

Regular cardiovascular exercise has often been linked to better mental health. It helps to keep many stress hormones, such as cortisol, in check. It also releases endorphins into the bloodstream, further lowering stress. In fact, regular exercise is even linked to better sleep. This in turn benefits cognitive function and emotional regulation throughout the day.

Muscle building

Using an exercise bike works various muscles in the body, particularly leg muscles. Combining high-resistance exercise with the right diet can help you build your legs muscles and strengthen them. This is especially beneficial for your calves, thighs and glutes.

Exercise bike maintenance

Diligent maintenance is an effective way to ensure that your exercise bike lasts longer. The main aspects of maintaining an exercise bike are cleaning and checking that the components are in good condition.


The exact process of cleaning an exercise bike will vary somewhat depending on its type. However, it will generally start by wiping down the machine to get rid of sweat and dust. These can both cause the components of the machine to deteriorate over time. The exact model of exercise bike will have instructions for how best to clean it.

Checking for faults

Checking for faults will also be different depending on what exercise bike you’re working with. If you notice any unusual sounds while you are using the machine, this is a common sign that some components may not be working as intended. While it’s tempting to try and fix it yourself, it’s best to leave it to professionals. We offer service and repair to make sure your equipment is running perfectly.
