Pedal Exerciser?

Postby ArthurJ » Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:10 am

I've been reading Amazon reviews for the last few days looking for a decent pedal exerciser. So far, I've turned up nothing bit iffy devices, some of which have even been reported to fall apart!

Does a decent pedal exerciser exist? If one works for you, then please let me know which one you're using.

what is your budget?

I recently bought a stationary exercise bike that also gives your arms a bit of a workout at the same time, don't know this is something you would be able to use.

This is not the one I bought but it is the same in function and will give you an good idea of what it does. This one is also very affordable and has good feedback:

Prices for this style of exercise machine vary substantially up to the $1000 range.

By the way, many of the reviews on Amazon simply cannot be fully trusted.

Thanks for the link to the exercise bike. I already have access to one, but it's difficult getting on and off. I was looking for a decent floor pedal model that might help build some function back.

Regarding the Amazon reviews, yes, I know that all reviews can't be trusted. However, if half a dozen or so people say the thing falls apart, then it's probably best to look elsewhere.

Buy from a local store like Walmart or Target, if you have an issue with it, they will take it back without any hassles even after extended periods of time. The pedal exercisers are typically simple device and not overly expensive.

Another good exercise option to consider is a workout chair where you can get a pretty good workout for many different parts of your body from a seated position, some incorporate pedaling into them.

like this all in one:
