Until the invention of recumbent exercise bikes, lounging in front of the television had not been considered a healthy endeavor. Today, however, from the recumbent position, people can build their endurance, strengthen their legs, and get comfortable watching their favorite shows all at the same time. Elite fitness companies design bikes for this very purpose. They know people need their exercise, and that most people, if given the choice, would choose TV over sweating in the gym any day of the week.

Convenience of Modern Recumbent Exercise Bikes

For convenience, some of the best recumbent exercise bikes are self-generated. They don't need to be plugged into outlets. Therefore, they come with no unsightly wires over which people can trip. The people using these bikes generate all the needed power with their legs. Even without connecting to electrical sources, the top bikes can count calories, calculate mileage, and increase resistance. Wireless bikes are ideal for television rooms, because they can always be easily removed when company arrives.

For the ultimate in comfort, some recumbent exercise bikes come with built-in fans. Biking can be a grueling exercise, and people sweat a lot when they work out. Rather than wiping themselves down with towels every two minutes, on these machines people are cooled by pleasant breezes.

The comfort features on these bikes do not lessen the health benefits. To get in shape, people don't need to train like Stallone in Rocky IV, when he scaled 20,000-foot mountains in sub-freezing temperatures, military pressed a wheel barrow full of grown men, did pull-ups off rusty nails, and got into the best shape of his life without the assistance of a single modern convenience. This spartan behavior is not necessary, regardless of how comfortable people get, they can still receive great all-around workouts on exercise bikes.
