    Anonym 20.4.2018 - cardiostrong exercise bike BX60 black

    De hometrainer heb ik zelf gemonteerd, maar het was niet echt ingewikkeld om het zelf te doen! Ben heel blij met dit apparaat en ook blij dat ik niet voor het goedkopere model heb gekozen omdat deze op stroom gaat zijn er 16 verschillende standen voor de belasting en dat werkt erg fijn

  • cardiostrong exercise bike BX70i

    Anonym 20.4.2018 - cardiostrong exercise bike BX70i

    Hiervoor heb ik ook een hometrainer gehad maar die was lang niet zo goed als deze. Ik heb gebruik gemaakt van de gratis montage wat soepel verliep. De installateur wist waar hij het over had en had de hometrainer al snel geïnstalleerd. Dankzij de feedback die je krijgt kun je doelen voor jezelf gaan stellen wat naar mijn mening mensen gemotiveerd houdt! De Hometrainer bevat veel goede functies. Al met al, ik ben erg enthousiast over deze hometrainer.

  • cardiostrong exercise bike BX30

    Anonym 20.4.2018 - cardiostrong exercise bike BX30

    Super blij met deze aanschaf en met de installatie. Hij fietst lekker en maakt weinig geluid, dus stoort de huisgenoten niet. Neemt weinig ruimte in beslag, wat erg fijn is voor een kleinbehuisde. Zeker een aanrader!

Purchase advice for exercise bikes: the most important facts about the popular fitness equipment

Exercise bikes are fitness machines for home training
Train at home with the exercise bike
Exercise bikes or bike trainers have been the most popular and most frequent fitness machines for a long time. It's due to their very simple principle: they work like bikes and that's what everyone knows. Despite the simple principle, there are many little differences between the different models. That's why it is all the more important to find and buy the correct or - more precisely - the appropriate training machine. It's very often that ppor exercise bikes of the discounter or the store end as dust catcher or coat stand. Offering our purchase advice for exercise bike, we would like to call your attention to the important differences and help you in deciding what to purchase.

Why should I buy an exercise bike?

At first, we would like to explain you the advantages of an exercise bike in short, so you can be sure that the exercise bike is the ideal fitness machine for you and not just another category of equipment, as for instance treadmill or elliptical cross trainer.
Exercise bikes offer some advantages for all users, being absolutely independent from age, fitness level or training goal. One of the biggest advantages of a bike trainer is the accessibility: There's no need of exercise to work out with an exercise bike. Those, who can sit down and pedal, can do an effective cardiovascular training with the fitness equipment.
Cardio training with an exercise bike is possible at any time. Just doing a few sessions a week will result in good successes for health or in losing weight - and for the general fitness. The training in the sitting position is very comfortable and mainly more joint-gentle than running. Hence, many healthy training programmes are developed according to the bike trainer.
In contrast to the classic upright bike, the advantage of bike trainers is that the resistance of an exercise bike can be watt-precisely set. It offers the advantage that the own performance is precisely measured and the same resistance can be set again and again.

Purchase advice for an exercise bike: Recumbent bike or exercise bike

At first, it is important to differentiate between two designs of exercise bikes: Recumbent bike and the upright exercise bike. The upright exercise bike is actually like a stationary bike. Saddle, pedals, handles - everything you expect from a real bike is included in an exercise bike.
Recumbent bikes are exercise bikes with backrest

back-gentle exercise bikes
Recumbent bikes differ from the common bike design. The pedals are not below the seat, but they are mounted in the front of the machine. The saddle is situated below the pedals and are a bit lower. Hence, the training position on the recumbent bike is almost lying, just the upper body is upright. Recumbent bikes offer an even more comfortable training and the back is additionally supported and relieved. Even though the position on the recumbent bike looks more comfortable, the training is as effective and intensive as with a common upright exercise bike. Find the recumbent bikes at our online shop under its own category.

Seat adjustment

Your new exercise bike should be equipped with a height-adjustable seat. The more precise the adjustment, the better! Pleasy pay attention that the height adjustment has a scale so that every user can quickly find its best sitting height. The height adjustment should be as simple as possible, i. e., with a control knob or a lever. For a better seat adjustment, the seat should also be adjustable in horizontal direction - that means in the space between saddle and handlebar.


The seat should be big enough so that everyone, who uses the machine, can comfortable sit down on it. The upholstery should be soft and thick so that long training sessions remain comfortable. The most comfort is offered by gel saddles. The saddle of many exercise bikes can also be exchanged. For instance, you can use your bike saddle on the exercise bike or exchange the saddle against another model. That's an interesting feature, when different persons train with the machine or when you want to cycle with a more sporty racing saddle.

Frame and body with step-through

In the meantime, more and more exercise bikes models offer a deep step-through. Between upright post and seat, the frame is not closed - so you can easily step through. For persons with limited mobility, a deep step-trhough is essential. It is also recommendable for all other users, because getting on and off is much easier.

Training control via pulse

Exercise bikes are great for losing weight. In order to make a weight reduction as successful as possible, the exercise bike should be equipped with the possibility of heart rate monitoring. A heart rate monitoring offers the advantage that you you can set a certain pulse zone. You achieve more effectively some training goals in certain pulse zones. The machine adjusts automatically the resistance so that you always remain in the set pulse zone. For instance, you train at 55 to 65 % of the maximum heart rate in the optimal fat burning zone. The following illustration makes clear which training goals can be best achieved in which pulse zone:
Very easy 50 to 60% Health zone Supporting health
Easy 60 to 70% Fat burning zone Activation of the fat metabolism, improvement of the basic cardio
Moderate 70 to 80% Aerobic training / Fitness zone Improvement of the aerobic fitness, increase in cardio performance
Intensive 80 to 90% Anaerobic training / Anaerobic zone Improvement of lactage tolerance, training for maximum increase in performance
Maximum 90 to 100% Maximum training / competition zone Improvement of maximum performance and speed


Beispiel Fitshop Testurteil Ergometer
An example of the Fitshop exercise bike test rating
It is important that all mobile parts of the exercise bike, especially the drive belt, are completely covered. Hence it is ensured that nothing gets caught or clamped while exercising. In addition, a cover ensures that the sensitive inside of the exercise bike is protected from dust, dirt, and sweat. Moreover, the stability provides a higher safety - we tested it for you. Please find the rating in the Fitshop test rating. Our Fitshop test rating offers you an evaluation with respect to equipment, ergonomics, and concentric run as well.

Resistance setting and training programmes

Training programmes offer diversion and support you in achieving your training goals more effectively. Many programmes are not really required. In principle, all exercise bikes are already equipped with the possibility of Watt control. In addition, we recommend at least one programme for controlling the performance via the heart rate, an interval programme as well as a small selection of pre-set profile programmes. Hence, new stimulations can be set in the training again and again and progress is quicker achieved.

The training computer should be easy to use. When the whole family works out with the machine, the computer should be equipped with a user memory. Hence, grandma, father or daughter can use immediately their personal settings.


An ergonomic design prevents signs of fatigue and avoids physiologically false postures. Details like the adjustability of saddle and handlebar, a deep step-through, the pedal space, and the general design of the machine ensure good ergonomics. Please find an overall evaluation of the ergonomics of all our exercise bikes in the Fitshop test rating. Furthermore, you can test exercise bikes at all our stores in order to find out which design of an exercise bike is best for you.

The handle

The more grip possibility an exercise bike offers, the better it is. First, different persons can chose the preferred grip position and secondly, you sit more comfortably, when you can support yourself as you like it. In addition, you can change the hand position during the training. Please make sure that the handles are non-slip. When the handlebar is also adjustable in height or incline, it offers an additional comfort.

The training experience with an exercise bike

The concentric run or the training experience is closely linked to the ergonomics - a comfortable training position. Many small factors ensure a good concentric run, of it the workmanship and the material quality. We cycled with all exercise bikes and evaluated all exercise bikes according to the criterion "concentric run" in our Fitshop test rating.

Balance mass

We are often asked for balance mass. However, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that the weight of the balance mass of an exercise bike is not a decisive feature. The workmanship of the whole resistance system and its quality are much more important. A big balance mass might be a sign for a good exercise bike, but not necessarily.

When you want to test an exercise bike, we invite you to visit one of our several stores.

Alternatives for exercise bikes

Besides the recumbent bikes, there are two other alternatives for exercise bikes: the indoor cycle and the upright bike. Upright bikes are actually the predecessors of exercise bikes and offer much less functions. The important Watt control is not offered by upright bikes, for instance.
Indoor cycles are rather meant for sportsmen. They are much more similar to a traditional bike, because they are not equipped with any electronics, for instance. The resistance is manuallyl set and can be set much higher.

Good reasons to buy an exercise bike

Finally, we would like to summarise the most important advantages of an exercise bike for you:
  • When you go for an exercise bike, you train independently of the weather and the time.
  • The relatively small equipment is space-efficient and easy to use.
  • The training is easy and motivating.
  • The resistance is displayed in Watt.
  • Exercise bikes are easily "accessible": everyone, who can pedal, can benefit from the training!
