Stationary cycling is one of the most effective low-impact aerobic exercises for increasing your metabolism to burn calories and fat more efficiently. Because there isn't heavy impact on your joints, stationary cycling can be a lifelong form of exercise. For effective aerobic exercise, work within your target heart rate zone (70% to 85% of your maximum heart rate). A heart rate monitor will give you the constant feedback you need so you stay within your target heart rate zone.
The Elite Total Body Recumbent Bike includes an electronic monitor to measure your speed, calories burned, distance, and pulse. The electronic monitor is battery-operated so there is no need for an electrical outlet. The handrails' built-in pulse sensors take your pulse for display on the electronic monitor.
