The use of air bikes

2021-09-02

Unlike a more traditional exercise bike, elliptical machine, treadmill or step machine, the Air Bike isn’t really designed for long, drawn-out cardio sessions where a few episodes of your favourite Netflix show are consumed via a snazzy multimedia panel. You have to work on an Air Bike to get the most out of it

Search the internet and you will see them referred to as the ‘Devil’s Tricycle’ and even the ‘Misery Machine’ thanks to its inherent ability to leave users sucking for air after a punishing workout. Of course, it is possible to gently rotate the legs for the duration of Friends, but users will soon get bored and will likely have issues with the slightly unnatural cycling experience.

Instead, those serious about fitness should view an Air Bike as the ultimate HIIT machine - employing a workout where you perhaps first warm up for around five minutes, before going hell for leather for ten to twenty minutes and wrapping things up with a decent cool down.

An Air Bike is well known in the CrossFit and gym world as a great calorie-burning machine with its unlimited range of fan driven resistance that is fully dependent on the user. Essentially, the harder you work the more resistance there will be. An air bike has independent handlebars that move and also build resistance, giving the user an upper and lower body workout. Due to the dual upper and lower body design air bikes make great home fitness machines. You get two workouts in one machine; taking up less space and maximizing effectiveness. This cardio machine is a powerhouse and will help users push their limits, lose weight, build endurance and gain strength.

An air bike is the perfect tool for interval training or HIIT with infinite intensity and resistance. This means users can push themselves harder and faster without worrying about settings or resistance levels.
