Target Your Total Body
The Stamina Elite Total Body Recumbent Bike will take you on a more efficient, more effective ride. Engineered to broaden the traditional target of cycling, the Elite Total Body Recumbent Bike does exactly what its name declares: it works your entire body. The exercise bike also lets you drive your heart rate to peak levels – earning the metabolism-boosting benefits of a heart-thumping cardio routine.
The padded seat and seatback are designed to place you in a semi-reclined position, letting you comfortably tone and strengthen all the major muscles in your hips, thighs and buttocks. For a strenuous upper-body workout, the Elite Total Body Recumbent Bike is equipped with rotating handlebars that work your arms, shoulders, and back while your hands pedal. You can also measure your progress and keep your motivation with the built-in, battery-powered electric monitor, which displays speed, calories burned, distance and heartbeats per minute.
Stamina recognizes that no one knows your body like you do, so we’ve built the Elite Total Body Recumbent Bike for quick and easy adjustments. From the resistance and intensity of your ride to the handrail position, this stationary bike is yours to personalize. The quick-adjust tension knob lets you select any of eight resistance levels to ramp up or scale down your output, without interrupting your workout. Because the heavy-weighted flywheel resistance and belt drive train is designed for on-the-fly adjustments, the bike maintains smooth pedaling at any setting.

About Recumbent Exercise Bikes
Despite the competition from trendy new fitness inventions, exercise bikes continue to be popular options for home exercise. They offer the same aerobic benefits of riding a bicycle at any time, in any weather, without leaving the comfort and safety of home. Exercise bikes don’t take up much space, require little or no balance or coordination, and can provide an effective workout for all levels of users, from beginners to serious competitors. While the same could be said for a number of other types of home fitness equipment, the exercise bike is one of the few that allows you to watch television or read a magazine while you work out.
The term recumbent literally means “lying down.” Exercising in a recumbent or reclining position allows the user to have full ergonomic back support, without causing strain on the arms, neck and shoulders, all of which can be common effects of using an upright bicycle. For many people, having convenient access to quality exercise equipment is critical to sticking with a long-term exercise program.
