Tired of trudging to the gym for your cardio every day, but don't have the space or money to invest in a home exercise bike? Turn to the Stamina InStride Cycle XL, a portable folding exercise bike that gets your heart rate up while storing easily on a closet shelf. The InStride measures a mere 19 by 15.25 by 12.25 inches (W x H x D)--about the size of a small suitcase--so you can bring it to the office or on vacation in a pinch. More significantly, the InStride lets you pedal with your feet while seated for a lower body workout, or with your hands for an upper body workout. As a result, you can improve your cardiovascular health and strengthen your upper and lower body muscles all from the comfort of your own home. The InStride Cycle XL is equipped with a battery-operated electronic monitor that times your workout and keeps you motivated. The unit's convenient tension control, meanwhile, offers several resistance levels, so you can vary your workout intensity depending on your fitness level. And thanks to the sturdy nonslip rubber feet, the InStride stays securely in place while you exercise. Other features include handy foot straps, a durable steel tubular frame, and a pewter gray finish. The InStride, which weighs a mere 9 pounds, carries a 90-day warranty. The Benefits of Cycling Cycling improves your cardiovascular health, boosts the functioning of the heart and blood vessels, and decreases your risk of heart disease. It also increases HDL (good cholesterol) and reduces the amount of triglycerides in the blood, helping lower blood pressure. Of course, aerobic conditioning is just the beginning, as the constant movements demanded by the InStride improve your muscle strength in the legs, arms, shoulders, and backs. And exercising your muscles helps prevent osteoporosis and the risk of broken bones. Finally, cycling helps you maintain flexibility without stressing the joints, and can reduce discomfort from arthritis or back pain. Other benefits include improved digestion, better lung function, and higher metabolism.
