Stationary bicycles have come a long way over the past 20 years. No longer designed as “one-size-fits-all” – they now offer multiple adjustments to simulate the fit and feel of your road bike. If upright cycling is uncomfortable for you due to orthopedic limitations, you can continue your cycling with a recumbent design. And the workout programming options are innumerable – keeping your workouts fun, different and challenging every day.
One company which has maximized these design features is LeMond Fitness (now part of HOIST Fitness). Their g-Force line of LeMond exercise bikes offers 13 custom workout programs along with three heart rate controlled options. But this is just the beginning. All g-Force bikes come with a personal training program called WKO Lite . This software program allows you to download your workouts directly into your computer. Just like having a coach in your back pocket, you can use this information to create your own fitness diary and customize your g-Force workout to lose weight, improve your health or train like a pro. You can learn more about this amazing Lemond Training Programs on the Lemond Fitness website.
LeMond g-Force bikes are available as upright (UT) or recumbent (RT). Unique to LeMond’s recumbent exercise bike is the ability to adjust the seat into 1 of 5 different angles, avoiding muscle fatigue and enhancing your comfort. You can learn more about the G-force RT Recumbent Exercise Bike on the BGI Fitness website.
The LeMond G-force UT Exercise Bike does an amazing job of re-creating the fit and feel of your road bike. The seat can be adjusted not just up and down, but also fore and aft. Handlebars also allow these two adjustments and offer multiple hand positions. For the avid road cyclist, you can even swap out the seat with your favorite road saddle. The G-Force UT is also available from BGI Fitness.
Bicycle Garage Indy and BGI Fitness – two great stores in one. On the Indianpolis North side at 82nd and Dean Road, and in Greenwood, just west of I65 on County Line Road.
