Summer is in full swing, and while it’s amazing weather to hit the beach or the lake for the day, it’s just too hot to be exercising outdoors for the most part. On those days where you feel like you’re melting the second you walk out the door you can ride a bike, go for a run or have a row in the comfort of your home. This is where owning exercise equipment comes in handy, and today I’m welcoming Schwinn Fitness equipment to Best Buy.

Introducing Schwinn

In 1895 Ignaz Schwinn, with the financial backing of Adolph Fredrick William Arnold, created what would become The Schwinn Bicycle Company. By the end of 1896 Schwinn made quite the name for themselves by having more race victories than any other bike company. Then in 1965 they brought the bike indoors with the creation of the Deluxe Exerciser exercise bike. Today they offer many options in home fitness equipment.

It uses exponential wind resistance which means the harder and faster you pedal, the more resistance you’ll feel. On the console you can keep track of your RPM, speed, time, distance, watts, calories burned and pulse. The water bottle holder will help keep you hydrated and the foot straps offer balance and motion control. It’s also easy to move if you need to with the transport wheels located on the bottom front of the bike.
