What is it? The 2-in-1 folding fitness bicycle is a cheaper option than the ordinary stationary bike, but it can provide basically the same exercise as the ordinary stationary bicycle, while taking up less space. Because of its convenient folding frame design, you can fold it and store it upright after using it for exercising, which can help you save much space at home. In addition, because it also adopts a 2-in-1 design, it allows you to choose to do sweat-burning exercise in an upright position or a slower-paced exercise in a recumbent stance according to your own exercise needs. Generally speaking, a foldable exercise bike weighs between 30 and 50 pounds. The lighter 2-in-1 folding fitness bicycle will be easier to move and place in your desired position, while the heavier 2-in-1 folding fitness bicycle will be more stable and the pedal will move more smoothly.

Can it help to lose weight? The answer is undoubtedly yes. The 2-in-1 folding fitness bicycle is very suitable for weight loss. According to Harvard Health Press, for a person weighing 125 pounds, exercising at moderate intensity for 30 minutes on the upright recumbent exercise bike can burn about 210 calories. A 155-pound person can burn about 252 calories with the same length of time and exercise intensity. A 185-pound person can burn nearly 294 calories with the same length of time and exercise intensity. By increasing exercise intensity, you can also achieve higher calorie burning (but you must do what you can).
