Exercise Bike or Cross Trainer.

Exercise is important for your health and well being.
One way to get some much needed exercise without leaving the comfort of your own home is to purchase some form of exercise equipment.
A couple of good choices are either a cross trainer or an exercise bike.

I personally use an exercise bike.

It is convenient having the exercise bike in my home-office and was not too expensive to purchase.

I use my exercise bike on a regular basis at least once a day. You don’t have to do a cycle marathon to feel the benefits, little and often seems to be the best option for me.  I have found it is possible to actually do some work whilst peddling, writing on a tablet for instance, but I prefer to listen to the local radio station or maybe a podcast.

Do you own an exercise bike or any other sort of fitness equipment?
