Recumbent Bike

Saturday, February 27, 2010

I have been kicking it around for several months that I should buy a recumbent exercise bike. I have even checked out several at different stores in the area to test the comfort and also read reviews online to help choose the right one.

One of my problems was that I didn't really have a good place in the house to put it. Then my youngest son moved out and I decided to make his room a place for my bike, some other exercise equipment. This way it isn't quite as sad that he has left home.

So yesterday during work I decided which model of bike I wanted and I went after work to buy it. My husband put it together and we both did the fitness test. I never thought he would do it, but I'm happy to say he did. I am hoping that he will use it once in a while too.

I have also set a goal to read while I'm working out. I am an avid reader and feel guilty if I sit around and read so now at least I will be doing something constructive while I read.

    Mine is sitting on my porch because the grandsons loved it to death. I did like using it to watch tv. Now the dogs exercise me.

    LOVE recumbent bikes...there is something so laid back about sitting back yet at the same time peddling one's brains out...lol! I don't own one, but have fun using one if there's one at a hotel where we might be staying. I'm always surprised when I start sweating...it's like HEY, I'm just sitting back taking it easy...what's to SWEAT about...? :-)

    I have a workout room as well...it's a GREAT idea...you can situate everything up precisely to your liking to make it as simple and easy as possible to slip right into your workout routine.

    Way to SPARK!

    Kudos to helpful DH as well! :-)

    I have an upright stationary bike and I feel guilty if I am just watching TV or a movie. When I ride the bike, I can catch up on my shows and fast forward thru the commercials.
    Hope you enjoy the bike! emoticon
