Tired of trudging to the gym for your cardio every day, but don’t have the space or money to invest in a home exercise bike? Turn to the Stamina InStride Cycle XL, a portable folding exercise bike that gets your heart rate up while storing easily on a closet shelf. The InStride measures a mere 19 by 15.25 by 12.25 inches (W x H x D)–about the size of a small suitcase–so you can bring it to the office or on vacation in a pinch. More significantly, the InStride lets you pedal with your feet while seated for a lower body workout, or with your hands for an upper body workout. As a result, you can improve your cardiovascular health and strengthen your upper and lower body muscles all from the comfort of your own home.

The InStride Cycle XL is equipped with a battery-operated electronic monitor that times your workout and keeps you motivated. The unit’s convenient tension control, meanwhile, offers several resistance levels, so you can vary your workout intensity depending on your fitness level. And thanks to the sturdy nonslip rubber feet, the InStride stays securely in place while you exercise. Other features include handy foot straps, a durable steel tubular frame, and a pewter gray finish. The InStride, which weighs a mere 9 pounds, carries a 90-day warranty.

The Benefits of Cycling
Cycling improves your cardiovascular health, boosts the functioning of the heart and blood vessels, and decreases your risk of heart disease. It also increases HDL (good cholesterol) and reduces the amount of triglycerides in the blood, helping lower blood pressure. Of course, aerobic conditioning is just the beginning, as the constant movements demanded by the InStride improve your muscle strength in the legs, arms, shoulders, and backs. And exercising your muscles helps prevent osteoporosis and the risk of broken bones. Finally, cycling helps you maintain flexibility without stressing the joints, and can reduce discomfort from arthritis or back pain. Other benefits include improved digestion, better lung function, and higher metabolism.

    The InStride Cycler delivers a nice work-out. The convenience of being able to use it almost anywhere in my home is a big plus. It is lightweight, makes no noise and takes up very little space. I immediately noticed that my legs felt light and really good. I could feel the circulation flowing. I also use it on a table for an upper-cardio workout. It stays firmly in place on a tile floor and on my wood floor I cut a piece from my yoga mat & it stays in place beautifully. The most important thing about the InStride Cycler is that I use it several times a day – unlike other fancier equipment that wound up collecting dust. After checking other websites, I found Amazon had the best price too. I highly recommend this product!

    I was looking at exercise bikes but there were a number of drawbacks. The bikes would have taken up my whole living room. They would be too heavy for me to move. And they were quite expensive, esp. the recumbent ones I liked. I saw this online and decided to give it a shot. I was expecting a flimsy piece of junk but was very pleasantly surprised. It’s quite sturdy. The folding feature allows it to be stored under your couch when company comes. I read a few reviews that said these cycles make noise but I have not noticed that at all. I have also not encountered the slipping that some people mentioned. I use the cycle on a rug, not on a bare floor, which may make a difference. I have diabetes and a heart condition and it’s important for me to get some exercise. This is a good choice for me. Sitting on a kitchen chair proved uncomfortable due to the fact that I am short. I found a living room chair that was just the right height. So far, I have used it every day. It’s very easy to use it while watching TV at night. One segment of a show is about 13 minutes, so you do not even have to use the timer. I would absolutely recommend this to someone like myself.

    Great for mild desk activity, not for fitness buffs, May 5, 2016

    I spend most of the workday sitting in front of a computer, so I needed something to be at least semi-active. I purchased this item despite reading some of the reviews.
    It doesn’t slide around on my carpet.
    The pedals reach about 1 ft in height at the highest point (see picture), and will occupy about 1.5 ft x 1.33 ft of space on the floor. I’m about 5’1 (ish), measuring 1’7 from the bottom of my foot to my knee. It fits under my desk, though on rare occasions, my knee ends up hitting the underside of the desk which is about 2’4 tall.
    The electronic monitor piece is flimsy and kept falling off within two days. It works when you’re able to keep it on. This wasn’t important for me so I just took it out.
    The tension control works somewhat. I didn’t get a level of resistance higher than 2 or 3 on a regular stationary bike. When I set it at the highest level, it did tend to stick once in a while, which is when my knee would hit the table (followed by a loud ‘ouch!’). If you keep it at the halfway/easy level, it will run smoothly.
    I kept it anyway because it allows me to keep moving, and I still get my heart rate high enough for a mild aerobic activity.
