New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/06/2014 -- There will always be a market for mid-priced and top-of-the-range home exercise bikes, but it would appear that people are increasingly turning to low-cost entry-level bikes and pedal exercisers, which are essentially miniature exercise bikes that don't have any handlebars or a frame, in a quest to get fit and lose weight.
Both of these items of fitness equipment enable people to get all the cardiovascular benefits of an exercise bike workout, without having to spend several hundreds of dollars on a top quality machine, which is possibly why they are both extremely popular right now.
According to Exercise-Review-Site.com, one of the best-selling exercise bikes in 2014 is the Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse, which was reviewed here at the start of January.
However pedal exercisers such as the MagneTrainer arm and leg exerciser and the top-rated DeskCycle pedal exerciser, which were named in this article as two of the best pedal exercisers to buy in 2014, have also been amongst the top-sellers this year, despite the fact that they are a lot more basic than conventional exercise bicycles.
Commenting on this sales trend, a spokesman for Exercise-Review-Site.com said:
"Exercise bikes in the lower price range always tended to be poorly made and very basic, but nowadays a lot of the entry-level bikes are strong and sturdy, have a good quality LCD display and offer really challenging workouts as they have multiple levels of resistance."
"So it is no surprise that these are really popular right now, and it's no real surprise that pedal exercisers are proving popular either because some of the best ones also have LCD displays and a range of resistance levels, and are ideal for anyone who wants to burn lots of calories and improve their fitness levels whilst relaxing at home or working at their desk, for example."
