We have a great range of upright bikes available at The Fitness Shop. This includes the BodyWorx AC550AT Upright Bike, the Matrix U30 XR Upright Bike, and the NOHrD Bike Ash. The options are endless, but what actually is an upright bike and why should you consider one?
Upright bikes are perfect for anyone who suffers from lower back pain, as they provide a low-impact exercise. These bikes will keep your abdomen tight and your spine erect, which is great in terms of providing an efficient abdominal muscle workout as well as building flexibility and muscles within your hamstring and thigh.
There are a variety of different exercise bikes, all of them providing the calorie-burning, heart health-building cardio with an extra focus on giving you a lower body workout targeting the glutes, calves, and thighs. Upright bikes are particularly good for building thigh and hamstring muscles and flexibility. By keeping your spine erect and your abdomen tight, upright bikes provide an efficient abdominal muscle workout.
