7 Best Indoor Exercise Bikes in 2019

Keeping in tip-top shape can be a challenge these days, particularly when you have limited time to head over to the gym and spend an hour or two sweating it out. Good thing, you have the option to work out indoors.

Exercising at home is now common for many who need to squeeze working out into their busy day. It’s now easier than ever to set up a small makeshift gym inside your home with all the fitness equipment such as plates, kettlebells, and an indoor bike that you can rent or purchase for your weight training and cardio needs.

An indoor bike trainer is arguably one of the best cardio machines you can own, particularly if you are looking for a low-impact exercise that won’t be hard on your knees. It can also improve joint mobility while helping you lose weight with regular use. You won’t even have to be at risk of getting into an accident compared with cycling outdoors.

If you’re on the lookout for an indoor bike, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some of the best you can set your sights on by category:
