If you find that you’ve been moving less since the onset of the global pandemic, you’re not alone.
Between working from home and binging TV shows, this new sedentary lifestyle has caused the World Health Organization to increase its recommended range of exercise for adults. The new guidelines recommend 2.5–5 hours of moderate-intense physical activity and 1.25–2.5 hours of vigorous physical activity per week.
While moderate-intense activity can include going for a walk or taking an online pilates class, more vigorous activity includes those that really get your heart rate up, like running or spinning.
Amazon’s best-selling stationary bike has over 10,000 five-star reviews, and it retails for nearly $1,200 less than Peloton’s original bike. (It’s nearly $2,200 less than the brand’s newest Bike+ actually.) And, Amazon’s is currently on sale.
YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike Stationary, $279.99 (Orig. $299.99)
The YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike has a 35-pound flywheel and heavy steel frame supporting persons up to 270 pounds and over 6-feet tall (comfortably up to a 35-inch inseam). Of course, the handlebars and seat height are adjustable to fit each rider.
It uses a belt system that provides a smooth, quiet ride — so you can ride in the morning without waking the rest of the family.

It also has a nonslip handlebar, padded seat, water bottle holder, an extensive range of resistance for building strength and a resistance bar for turning it up, turning it down or stopping the pedals.
Its LCD monitor tracks time, speed, distance and calories burned. It also comes with an iPad holder for listening to music, watching shows and movies or reading while riding.
According to the product description on Amazon, the bike comes with instructions for putting it together in about 30 minutes and has wheels for transporting it more easily.
