Home workouts have been booming in 2020, and while gyms have long since reopened, many people out there still prefer the convenience of the first option.
A good choice for home workouts are smart exercise bikes, and one of the most affordable on the market comes from Apex.
Founded in 2021, Apex Rides is a British brand with a self-proclaimed mission of “getting more people to move, because life is better when it moves”.
The Apex Bike costs £599 or from £15 at Klarna – In comparison, the Peloton range starts at £1,345.
What to expect from the Apex Ride bike
Here’s a rundown of what to expect from the Apex Smart Bike:
- It connects to a companion app on your phone or tablet. This allows you to view all of your work stats in real-time while taking any of Apex’s live or on-demand practice courses.
- Everyone loves Peloton for the camaraderie of connecting with other users – Apex offers exactly the same.
- You don’t have to be a Bradley Wiggins fan to get started on one of these smart bikes – ApexThe rides are suitable for all skill levels.
- The classes are just plain broad: you can expect stats-focused ‘metrics’ classes, Pilates classes, floor-based strength training, stretch-focused mobility classes, and ‘movement rides’ (which Apex dubs ‘a party on a bike’).
- Nothing beats a healthy bit of competition: As you train, you can earn Apex Points, which then count towards a user-wide leaderboard.
- Classes and sessions are led by one of Apex’s 12-strong team of fun and friendly teachers.
So if you still have a few lockdown pounds to shed, take a closer look at what the Apex bike has to offer on the brand’s website.
