Let us have a look at the variety of such equipments available.

Traditional Upright Cycle
This kind of workout equipment features a saddle, handles and pedals, and closely resembles a classic street bike. Your position of using this exercising gear is also similar to the position of riding a typical bicycle. If you are looking for an intense exercise routine, you can stand up while using this, so that you receive some really serious workout.

These are available in different designs and styles. They come with several features such as a screen for monitoring your heart rate, calories burned and distance traveled. Some cycles may also have adjustable handlebars and seats, ensuring ultimate comfort level for the user. Due to their compact size, these cycles can be easily moved around the home and can be used in very less space.

Dual Action Cycles
This is a kind of cycle in which handle bars are attached to the pedals. With this feature, you give some exercise to your arms as well while cycling. You can receive a full-body workout including your arms, upper body and of course legs. These exercise cycles also come with technological features that you can find in a traditional upright exercise bike.

Recumbent Exercise Cycle
The major feature of this kind of fitness tool (or exercise bike) is its seat. The seat is designed as a bucket or a chair. This kind of cycle places you in a reclining position. Some bikes may also have a backrest to support your lower back. While cycling in this reclining position, your legs are thrust forward instead of traditional downward movements. These bikes consume more space in your house, but they are really great to use. The seat is more comfortable and larger, and pedaling allows you to stay further back. Although this allows you to workout in a relaxed position, it can still give you a great workout.

Such exercise cycles are particularly ideal for elderly people, overweight people and anyone who is quite new to exercising. Before starting your exercise, you can set your challenges as per your skill level. You can gently pedal while listening to the music or reading a book.

Interactive Exercise Cycle
Modern, stylish and trendy, these exercise bikes are equipped with technology features that allow you to play games and have entertainment while exercising. Some exercisers find that these entertainment features distract them from the fatigue and their strenuous exercise sessions get converted into an easy workout regime. These exercise cycles allow you to watch movies, play video games or simulate a race or hill climb, making the entire cycling session a fun and enjoyable activity.

The type of exercise cycle that you choose depends on your individual requirements and preferences.
