Schwinn Airdyne Exercise Bike

The Schwinn Airdyne exercise bike utilizes exponential wind resistance to deliver a workout for both fitness enthusiasts and users recovering from injury.

Because resistance levels become harder as you pedal faster, the benefits derived from this bike are tailor made to each individual’s goals.

As a result, the Schwinn Airdyne is a multi-use exercise bike with an infinite number of resistance levels, durable steel frame, padded & adjustable seat and LCD display.

The Schwinn Airdyne exercise bike offers a diverse workout giving you the option to exercise your whole body, or break down your routine working upper or lower body separately.

Airdyne’s flywheel is designed for both a smooth and cool ride largely due to cooling air created from pedaling. Thus the more you pedal, the larger amount of cool air released.

Workout Programs

Two workout programs are included on the Schwinn Airdyne.

The greatest advantage to the Schwinn Airdyne is the ability to set your own routine for both the upper and lower body. Exercise both at the same time using the dual-action feature or separate the two and work on each part exclusively.

Take advantage of the heart rate monitoring feature and adjust your workout based on reaching your target zone. The only issue with the heart rate monitoring is the built-in pulse grips or wireless chest strap are not included with the purchase. You’ll need to get them separately.

Exercise Bike Features

The Schwinn Airdyne exercise bike contains an onboard computer (w/ LCD display) that keeps you abreast of your progress during your workout.

Time, distance and resistance levels are all displayed. Lose weight by tracking burned calories and calories per hour.

Whether you want to simulate riding up a mountain or trekking through the sand on a beach, working at a different elevation is easily accomplished by setting the computer’s air density and altitude features.

Because of Schwinn’s air resistance system, resistance levels truly are infinite allowing users to continually challenge themselves with harder and more intense workouts.

Infinite resistance levels are also a great option for injury recovery because your workout adjusts as you heal.

The drive train meets the tough requirements set for road bike chain life. Sealed cartridge bearings on the drive train extends usage and bike wear beyond normal bike life.

The transport wheels easily move the Airdyne from room to room especially on flat surfaces.

The rehabilitative usage of the Schwinn Airdyne is what separates the trainer from other exercise bikes. Schwinn’s wind resistance technology keeps the user cool during their fitness routine, even when pedaling at full speed.

If you are recovering from an injury, the Schwinn Airdyne does a little more than your typical exercise bike.
