Schwinn 120 Upright Exercise Bike


imageIt's no secret, the vast majority of people are overweight. The weight loss industry is booming, and people are becoming more and more conscious of the need for physical exercise, but where do you find the time? We're all busy. When you have a lot to do, working in the time to drive to a gym, or working around Mother Nature's schedule to walk or ride a bike outside is not just tricky, it's nearly impossible. Economy is an issue as well. Health clubs cost a lot of money, and even though walking outside is free, if you want to ride a bike you're going to have to spend a fair amount of money to buy a bike you can only use when the sun is out as well. The Schwinn 120 Upright Exercise bike is the answer to all of those problems.

If you buy your Schwinn 120 Upright Exercise bike for your home you can alleviate all of your problems in one fell swoop. A good quality standard upright exercise bike is as affordable as an average road bike, and you can use it any time you want. If you want to get in a workout before you get ready for work, or when you get home late at night from a full day of errands and work, you can simply jump on and ride. No more worrying about rain, snow, dangerous traffic outside, and no more driving to a health club, and spending regular dues to maintain your membership.

On Board Fitness

When you ride your Schwinn 120 Upright Exercise Bike, you have your entire workout status at your fingertips. The onboard computer readout not only keeps track of vital stats such as heart rate, time and distance, calories burned and other important measurements, it also has 12 programs built in to give you the perfect workout for your needs.

The onboard computer is simple to use, with six quick touch buttons to regulate everything from speed and resistance to viewing your stats. The LCD screen is backlit for easy to read status updates, and shows time, heart rate, distance, calories burned, watt, and a very helpful interval graph so you can see how the ups and downs of your training program are working.

Resistance

No self-respecting exercise bike is worth its own spinning weight if it doesn't have adequate resistance. You need resistance to create the stress levels that make your heart pump and your muscles engage. The Schwinn 120 Upright Exercise bike has 16 levels of resistance so you can find just the right spot to meet your needs at each level of your workout. You can start out light to warm up, and increase as your body begins to pump up.

Moveabilityimage

Even though the Schwinn 120 Upright Exercise bike is a heavy in the industry, it isn't a heavy in your home. It is 75 pounds of easy to move equipment that even has transportation wheels so you can roll it to exactly where you want to workout. Whether it is in front of the TV, or by a picture window for the outdoor feel, you can get it there, and then put it back out of the way when you're done.
