Ivation Fitness Electric Mini Pedal Exerciser
This is a late 2016 release motorized mini pedal exercise bike by Ivation Fitness for working both your legs and arms and comes with a bonus mat. Being a very new product there aren’t many customer reviews out yet but so far the rating is 5 out of 5 stars. It is compact in size so you can take it anywhere in your car, use it in the office then bring it home and work out while you’re sitting on the couch and watching TV, reading your book or whatever you may be doing and you don’t even have to think about exercise, your legs will do the work and you can concentrate on your work or entertainment. It has an LCD display with the regular but important indicators like the speed, distance, calories, time, scan and On/Off, time, reverse, speed + and – buttons underneath.
There are 6 auto programs, a manual mode, 12-speed settings to choose from as this is a motor-assisted exercise bike and will give you the optimal pace so you can achieve your target faster. And you can simply switch off the motor-assist and use the totally manual pedal option, so it is rather flexible that way. The LCD display also functions as a remote control as it is connected to the unit with a cable and you certainly do not need to move down each time you wish to check the indicators or change your speed etc. and you don’t have a chance of misplacing the remote. Ivation Mini Bike offers a relatively low-impact workout that will not create a major burden on your knees or any of your joints and promises great results if you use it regularly and follow a healthy eating plan. One interesting feature is that this bike lets you pedal both forward as per usual and on the reverse. In auto setting, the bike will run for a quarter of an hour and you might want to reset it if you wish to exercise longer.
It weighs 11 pounds with measurements of 11.6 x 19.3 x 11 inches with a 13.7 x 21.6-inch mat, so you can set it in very small areas too. You can easily cycle sitting down on a couch or lying down or even use your hands instead of your legs by putting the bike on a desk or table. You may be wanting to tone and strengthen your legs, burn calories and fat all over to be able to lose weight, improve your flexibility and balance and enhance your blood circulation and if used right this will certainly help. The included PVC mat is good for the bike to stay put when you’re exercising and there are straps on pedals for your safety so there will not be any slipping. Power consumption is 70 watts (like an average light bulb) and the max operating current is specified as 0.6 amperes. You can adjust this mini bike to your needs according to your fitness levels, age or if you are in physical rehab. In the package, you will find the mini bike, remote control/LCD display connected via cable, a PVC mat for stability, tools, instructions and operation manual.
