Cardio Vascular fitness:
Cardio vascular exercise is any type of exercise that increases the work of the lungs and the heart, and is the number one way to improve your general health, burn body fat and increase your fitness levels.
Utilising the large muscle groups in the lower body, the exercise bike is an effective machine for a total body workout. Not only is it incredibly effective for increasing cardio fitness, but it's also easy on the knees and joints.
To get the most from your workout on your bike you first need to identify what you want to achieve:
Are you working out to improve your health or to lose weight?
Understanding a little about intensity levels will ensure that the time invested in your exercise sessions returns the greatest benefits, rather than a hit and miss approach.
Cardio for good health:
To stay healthy, adults aged 19 - 64 should aim to do at least 150 minutes, or 2 hours and 30 minutes, of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week. Your heart rate should be raised and your breathing will be quicker but you should still be able to hold a conversation.
This level of exercise is for those wishing to improve quality of life and general well-being. Gentle 'good health' cardio training will increase your fitness level to a degree, helping you get through day-to-day tasks more easily and with more energy.
Cardio for weight loss:
To see a significant reduction in body fat, your sessions must be a little more intense. It's recommended that adults aged 19 - 64 should aim to do at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity every week. If you are working out at this level, you will be breathing hard and fast, your heart rate will be high and it will be difficult to talk.
This level of fitness is ideal for those wishing to lose weight and significantly improve their fitness levels.

As somebody who is starting exercising from scratch I find it really comfortable, with its wide, well-padded seat, the console easy to set up and understand and am relishing the challenge I set myself every week. It's a silent, smooth, ride and leads me to believe that I can do a 'proper' bike ride within a very short time. Thoroughly recommend.
The legs that the machine sit on are very sturdy and are made from metal with heavy duty rubber pads at the corners to stop it sliding around if on tile flooring, at the same time there are wheels in the front bar so it can be moved quite easily without lifting (the machine is very heavy). The seat position can be adjusted to any number of positions so virtually anyone of any height can use fit. There are 8 settings which determine the resistance on the pedals, this can be operated from the dial half way down the main post, Setting 1 literally offers no resistance, while 8 provides the feeling that you are cycling up a steep hill.
Everything can be monitored from the screen which showcases all the information you may want including; distance, time, rpm, amount of calories you have burnt and if you place your hands on the metal pads on the handle bars then it gives you your heart-rate in beats per minute (which i have to say is very accurate). Now the screen requires 2 AA batteries in the back to work but they do last a few months. Just to clarify for those wondering... the machine does not use batteries, it's magnet based, only the screen is battery operated!!
Other things worth noting are that the seat size and padding is excellent and is identical to what you would expect on a high quality bike, also the pedals are high quality and have a loop which can be adjusted so as to keep your feet secure.Read more ›
Delivery was quick and I found the assembly very straightforward. The bike was bought after I was advised I needed to lose some weight and move to a more healthy lifestyle. I followed the guidance in the instructions, opting to do a 30 minutes workout, pretty much everyday, and see how far I could go. The resistance was initially set fairly low, but as time has gone on it has been upped to just below the maximum. I have also been careful to eat sensibly - but I hasten to add I've not starved myself - just cut back on cakes, crisps, snacks etc. - but still occasionally treat myself
The results of all those 30 minutes? Since I've had the bike I've doubled the distance I can cover and have lost over 3 and a half stones or 22KG. It has also motivated me to get out and buy a road bike, which I now use in conjunction with the York Active 110. When the weather is bad I just hop on the exercise bike for 30 minutes and it gives me a tough, but low impact workout. The trip computer is more than adequate for the level I'm at, although it is hungry for batteries, probably due to the constant use. The handle bar does also squeak a bit when I'm getting into a rhythm, but to be honest with you I can't hear it with my iPod on.
For the price you'd be hard pressed to find better - plus I have been so impressed with the results - and feel so much healthier for it.
It is quiet in operation with quite a range of resistances to suit you, my wife likes to 'spin' whereas I prefer a fair amount of resistance to pedal against. There is a good range of adjustment and suits perfectly both my wife who is 5' in her stocking feet and myself a 6 footer.
I would have given it 5 stars except for 2 things, firstly the seat is not very yielding and somewhat uncomfortable after 10 minutes of use. That of course is easily rectified and courtesy of Amazon 48 hours later I had a new and very comfortable cycle seat to replace the original.
The second point concerns the computer display and sensor information (ie. pulse reading). In short I found it impossible to get to grips with and so basically I ignore it. For example after a hard 30 minute workout it shows I have used up approxiately 2 calories and gone about 100 metres. My pulse also shows zero which worries me because although I usually feel like death after using the bike I can still feel my heart pounding wildly in my chest !
So in conclusion if you are looking for a well made bike that offers just a little bit extra over the entry level ones, this York exercise bike comes highly recommended.
Edit. I have since discovered that I had the 2 sensor leads plugged in the wrong way round and having swapped them I can see my pulse rate, speed, distance covered, and calories burned etc., consequently I have changed the review rating to 5 stars !
