On the other days, I run or jump rope
When I wanted to buy a bigger piece of workout equipment for my home, I checked into the various makes as well as models of treadmills, ellipticals, rowing machines and stationary bikes. I considered the bizarre benefits of each one. The dimensions of the equipment was a priority because I have limited space available. Plus, I frequently exercise when the rest of the family is asleep. I was looking for a machine that operates quietly. I chose a stationary bike because it fulfilled all of my criteria and was the more affordable piece of equipment. The box that showed up in the mail looked too small to contain a stationary bike. Putting together all of those parts was difficult, time-consuming and aggravating. Once the bike was operational, I was totally happy with my selection. It provides a very comfortable seat and I can adjust it to accommodate the length of my legs. There is a cup holder for my water bottle. The touchscreen display is simple to navigate. I can quickly scroll through a wide selection of programs such as fun rides, rolling hills, stream crossing and long-distance treks. I can increase the challenge of the workout by tapping a button to elevate resistance. I can also just pedal faster. I am able to target my goal according to distance travelled, duration of the workout or amount of calories burned. I most often set the program to burn 500 calories and devote about an hour to riding the bike. I enjoy the ability to listen to music and read while I exercise. I usually ride the bike one or two times per week. On the other days, I run or jump rope. It’s beneficial to have the option of biking because it provides some relief for my joints.
