The Slim Cycle Review
This post is a review about the Slim Cycle exercise bike and whether it is a good exercise bike to use at home.
The pandemic has caused many to be stuck at home because of their gyms closing or out of caution of staying away from health clubs because of Covid. I have been involved in fitness close to 30 years and I have also had to learn to adapt to this new way of life.
I was looking for an inexpensive, but not cheap on quality, exercise bike to add to my home fitness workouts because lockdowns were happening.
I came across the Slim Cycle exercise bike. After reviewing it in detail and reading up on it, I decided to make the purchase and give it a shot as I felt the price was very reasonable.
What Is The Slim Cycle?
The Slim Cycle is a 2 in 1 exercise bike that can easily go from an upright bike to a recumbent bike. It also contains resistance bands to give to the added benefit of an upper body workout!
SLIM CYCLE Product Description Detail
UPRIGHT POSITION EXERCISE BIKE: Burn away calories with a high-intensity workout that will get your body sweating!. Sculpt and tone back and arm muscles while you cycle with the Built-in Arm Resistance Bands.
RECUMBENT POSITION EXERCISE BIKE: Use the less stressful, low impact, recumbent position to burn calories in a more comfortable position.
ADJUSTABLE RESISTANCE: The 8 levels of resistance, I find, are more than enough to make your workout challenging. Simply turn the resistance knob to your desired level at any moment to make your workout easy or hard.
DIGITAL CONSOLE DISPLAY: Keep track of speed, distance, calories burned, and how many miles you rode on a big digital console display. Also, you can get an detail accurate heart rate reading.
FOLDS AWAY: The Slim Cycle is easy to fold up and you can store it in a closet or under your bed making it perfect for any size house or apartment.
10 FREE CLASSES: There are 10 free on-demand virtual rides you get. You just have to download the FREE Slim Cycle app and you can follow along with the instructors!
