Deciding whether to purchase a smart stationary bike can be a big decision. However, an exercise bike should be viewed as a long-term investment and there are a multitude of reasons to invest in a connected stationary bike for your home. If you are wondering why a bike is a good investment, then be sure to keep reading to find out some of the top benefits of home exercise bikes.

Health and Fitness

Whether you’re looking to improve your fitness levels for health reasons, to lose weight or to simply lead a healthier lifestyle, a smart stationary bike is the perfect exercise equipment for improving your cardiovascular health without putting strain on your body.


One of the key benefits of home exercise bikes is their convenience. Not only does having an exercise bike in your home eliminate any travel time that is involved with going to the gym, but it also means you can get fit regardless of the weather conditions outside. You can work out from the comfort of your own home without having to worry about whether its raining or snowing outside, which is perfect for the upcoming winter months.

Compared to other exercise equipment, smart stationary bikes require a lot less space and are easier to move; making gym exercise bikes a suitable option for those with small apartments or little free space. Additionally, exercise bikes are significantly quieter than other exercise equipment. Echelon bikes are specially designed with magnetic resistance that keeps the bike’s noise to a minimum without restricting your workout, which means you will no longer disturb neighbours or other members of your household with a noisy workout.

No Gym Membership

A further reason why a bike is a good investment is that you will no longer require a gym membership, which (if you have one) can save a significant amount of money over the years. If you’re the type of person that enjoys interacting with others at a spin class, then do not worry, exercising at home does not mean you have to lose that interaction. Instead, you can join a tight-knit online exercise communityand continue to interact with others virtually.


Another gym exercise bike benefit is their usability for everyone, regardless of age or fitness levels. Exercise bikes are beginner friendly, meaning everyone in your household can use the bike. All Echelon bikes have adjustable resistance levels from 1 to 32, allowing individuals to alter the resistance to suit their personal needs. Having a piece of equipment that everyone can use is beneficial for getting the whole family fit, and our Echelon United Membership allows you to create up to five user profiles on the one membership. Competing with your family and friends is a great way to get everyone involved in keeping active.
