    AD8 Action Air Cycle 25th Nov 17 at 10:42 AM
    Hi,


    I'm interested in buying one of these exercise cycles.


    https://www.fitness-superstore.co.uk/schwinn-full-commercial-airdyne-ad8-dual-action-air-cycle.html?source=webgains&siteid=216667#tabsancho r


    I think it's possible to get one for around £900 with a discount. Maybe for less in the new year. Anyway, does anybody have experience of using one? If so, what did you think of it? It seems to be one of the best in exercise cycles. Thanks.

    Looks like I'll be the first in the UK to get this piece of equipment. :-)

    See these quite a lot in boxing and MMA gyms. Supposed to be good for interval training at high intensity.

    Quite a big outlay but not ridiculous compared to a good spec standard exercise bike.

    They often offer discounts on the price posted in the above link. I'm hoping that after Christmas, there will be even bigger discounts offered.

    I suggest you try one before making any purchase. They are quite unlike any other cycle based exercise.
    I am encouraged to use one as part of a HIIT training class in the gym and after 45 secs everyone climbs off breathing very heavily and totally drained.
    It does adapt very easily to how fit you are.
    I think you can tell it's not for me. I still prefer a decent quality rowing machine.
