The beginning of the exercise bike was very popular with cyclists training for races and for the person who wished to get fit and keep in shape. It was first named a Gymnasticon bike and was stationary and allowed you to cycle miles without moving from your location. Traditionally, it used for medical purposes and for the sick and not for the weight loss; we see it being used for today. The benefits were for physical therapy and to help the joints to become suppler and ensuring 100% full health after illness.
The Veoloer gometer bike provided cardio training, which tested and analysed the results to confirm Coronary Artery Disease, also for the use of astronauts in training. The early bikes were not adaptable for transportation so were not convenient to use.
The modern versions of today are much more easy to use in any location and can get from A to B, for the customer to use, becoming more adaptable. The elliptical trainer was designed to help stimulate the act of climbing the stairs and working the upper and lower of the body at the same time, as you would do in a real life situation.

The tension levels refer to the resistance of the programme it has on it and how much your body can cope with. Starting with small steps and then more and finally to reach the aim you have set yourself. It can come with manual or programmed options that can be set for your work out.
