I just love Nordic Track exercise equipment. My first Nordic Track purchase was way back in 1996 after the birth of my son. I was desperately trying to drop the baby weight and I needed the convenience of working out at home. I have been hooked on their products since then. I have had several different treadmills made by Nordic Track and have been very satisfied with their overall performance and durability. I decided to purchase a recumbent bike because I needed a change in my workout routine. I looked at several different brands of cycles and I knew that due to chronic neck and back pain, a recumbent bicycle would be the most comfortable and practical. Ultimately I decided to stick with the Nordic Track because it truly has a great reputation when it comes to high quality fitness equipment. The features on this recumbent cycle are very functional and easy to use. It offers a wide variety of workout programs and tracks calories burned as well as mileage and heart rate. I was somewhat skeptical about whether or not I would be able to get a good workout on a recumbent bike but I have been pleasantly surprised by how great these machines really are. I love the fact that my Nordic Track recumbent cycle is so easy to use and that I can workout while I am reading or watching TV. This bike is ideal for people who are still interested in exercising but need a less strenuous workout.
