LifeSpan R3 Recumbent Exercise Bike

The popularity of recumbent exercise bikes has increased, and for good reason. The recumbent bike is fitness equipment that is suitable for just about anyone. With the increase in popularity, there is more competition than ever in recumbent bikes. The number of different styles that are now available may have you asking, "How can I choose just one?" If you are interested in purchasing a bike that will last and offer many features, one plan of action is to narrow your search to higher-end models.

The Lifespan Fitness R3 Recumbent Bike is one of the top models in recumbent bikes. In terms of the basics, this bike is in line with its competitors. The seat is oversized, cushioned, and provides more than adequate back support. You can use the knob located under the seat to adjust it to a level that is enables you to easily pedal. You can also adjust the pedals by simply tightening and loosening the straps.

There are six program profiles that enable you to vary your exercise routine. Interested in losing weight? The Weight Loss profile can help you maintain the target heart rate necessary to burn higher calorie levels. Are you or someone else in your family training for a bike race? The Race profile positions you against a "virtual rider," whose progress you monitor on the display unit and attempt to beat.

If you're just interested in achieving a good cardiovascular workout, the Target Heart Rate, Mountain, and Interval profiles are ideal for helping you achieve your goal. You can also go freestyle using the Lifespan Fitness R3 Recumbent Bike's Manual profile that allows you to change the resistance level as desired. With 16 resistance levels available for each of the six programs, the chance of your workout on the Lifespan Fitness R3 Recumbent Bike ever becoming boring is slim.
