There are a variety of different types of exercise bikes available. You can choose between recumbent bikes, upright bikes, spin bikes, and…air bikes? But, what’s so special about an aerodyne bike?
Firstly, any bike-based exercise is a great altertive for those who have difficulty with other forms of higher impact cardio like running, treadmill or skipping. For example, if you have an ankle or a quad or hip flexor strain, an air bike provides a good option for exercising safely. It’s a great tool for rehab as it provides safe movement with no impact. It also allows the area of the injury to move and provide blood flow to the area to aid in recovery.
As far as conditioning, an aerodyne bike is the perfect tool for interval training like HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Unlike other types of exercise bikes with fixed handles, an air bike has handles that move with your peddaling action, so you get a full upper body workout as you work your legs. For those who have not tried yet, It’s deceptively intense the harder you push yourself.
Other exercise bikes may use a the weight of a flywheel combined with a resistance brake to add resistance to your workout. An aerodyne bike uses wind resistance via a large fan – so the harder you work, the more resistance you feel. You also get the cooling effect from the air moving through the fan – helping you to keep cool during your workout.
Top benefits of an aerodyne:
- Low-impact, total-body workout – The Aerodyne bike gets your arms in the action for better conditioning and calorie burning, all without any jarring impact to the joints.
- Infinite intensity and resistance – Unlike other types of exercise bikes, an aerodyne bike has the advantage of unlimited wind resistance to customize every stage of your workout.
