We often get asked how do the mini pedal exercisers compare with the old style of stationary bike.
They are quite different from one another with the exception of the pedals.
The pedaller is small and can move easily to wherever you want to use it in the house. The stationary bike is, mostly, stationary. It needs its own space and has its own seat.
The mini pedal exerciser will park nicely in front of your favourite chair or at the table or desk.
The mini pedallers are mostly designed for low intensity exercise. You will burn calories if weight loss by pedalling is a concern.
The stationary bike will allow for more intense exercise with a higher calorie burning ability.
If there is an issue with balance problems then a stationary bike can potentially be a problem. The mini pedaller will help to keep the blood pumping for various medical needs.
To help choose whether the stationary bike is what you want or a small and portable mini pedaller there are two main questions to ask.
1. Do you want it for high intensity cardio training?
2. Do you have the room for a big machine?
Here is more information to find out if the pedaller is the right fit for you.
