Schwinn exercise equipment have been one of the highly-rated names in the physical fitness market. The company has been known for its road bicycles before it entered the home exercise machine market. One of the most marketable segments of the brand is its exercise bike product line.

Schwinn, like other exercise bike manufacturers, offers both upright and recumbent models in almost all its series. The machines can cost from $300 to $1,300. The higher the price, the more features a model would have. To give you an idea of what the company is offering, let's look at some of the more popular models from this manufacturer.

First is the Schwinn Airdyne upright model. Because of its low impact design, the Airdyne has been used mostly in physical rehabilitation facilities. It has been recommended by the manufacturer to people who had injuries and are looking for a way to stay fit without aggravating old injuries or getting new ones. The model's handle bars have been designed to allow the user to incorporate arm motion into the whole physical fitness routine. However, this model does not have the program features or heart rate monitors that are seen in most modern exercise bikes.

Model 213 is one of the most popular recumbent machines from the company. This sells for less than $500 and has a magnetic resistance feature. It includes preset programs, heart rate sensors and profile courses. The 213 has a wide seat to accommodate bigger sized users. It also has a statistic counter that monitors time, distance, speed and pulse rate. With its numerous features, the model has been considered by product reviewers as a good buy at less than $500.

When it comes to indoor exercise equipment priced at $1,000 or higher, the Evolution Indoor Cycling Bike is one of Schwinn's major offerings. It sells for $1,049 to $1,199, depending on the distributor. The Evolution is an upright model and was designed in a road bike style. This model is more appropriate for people looking for high-intensity workout. It has a 38-pound fly wheel and direct-drive gears. The Evolution can be seen in physical fitness centers where equipment are expected to endure constant use for a long time.

Schwinn also offers exercise bikes priced between $199 and $299. One of these is the 101 model. The upright model has six preset programs and features eddy current resistance system. Although not as fully-loaded with features as its more expensive counterparts, the 101 has enough on it to provide for the basic exercise needs of a person who's just started bike exercising.

Schwinn exercise equipment do not start and end at indoor exercise bikes. After all, the company first built its name by manufacturing road bikes. The best thing a potential buyer can do before making any purchase is to conduct a thorough research and try various models at the retailer's or seek the opinion of physical fitness experts.
