The 5 Best Home Gym Cardio Machines

Guest post by ERA-FIT

With the current state of affairs, home gyms have seen a dramatic increase in popularity over the last few weeks. With gyms closing indefinitely until the situation improves, gym-goers are having to find alternative solutions to workout from home, but not everyone can afford the money or the space to build a full gym at home.

When it comes to home cardio machines, they don’t need to be large (or even expensive) to be effective, and provide you with some killer workouts. To help you choose the best machines for your home setup we’ve put together a list of our 5 favourite home gym cardio machines:

1. Concept2 Rower Model D

Concept2 is known for its rowing machines, which are used around the world by most gyms and popular with athletes. Yet, the Concept2 Rower Model D doesn’t have to be reserved for gyms. It’s pretty affordable, priced at only £855.00, and it’s a great addition to any home gym (and perfect if you’re looking just for one cardio machine).

The Model D has several practical features, making it one of the best cardio machines on the market. It allows for a range of different cardiovascular workouts, from shorter anaerobic sprints to longer distance aerobic sessions.

The rower’s LCD display allows you to track your workouts as you go along, providing accurate data about your pace, power, timing and even heart rate. And, it’s foldable! The Concept2 Model D can be folded therefore making it portable and easily storable.

  • LCD Screen to monitor workouts and progress
  • Controllable resistance flywheel making it suitable for everyone
  • Foldable and easily storable

2. AIR Attack Air Bike

If you’re looking for high intensity workouts, this one’s for you. The AIR Attack Air Bike is the ultimate high intensity tool. It’s durable, fan-resistance combined with the dual-action design attacks both the upper and lower body. Perfect for achieving a full body workout.

Made with both the competitive athlete, and the average user, in mind, the resistance fan responds to the effort put it. It’s always challenging you for your maximum effort. AIR Attack have integrated an LCD screen to the Air Bike to allow to monitor heart rate, speed, RPM, time, watts and calories burnt. 

  • Perfect for high intensity anaerobic workouts
  • LCD monitor to track workout and effort

3. Concept2 BikeErg

The Concept2 BikeErg is the latest addition to the Concept2 family of sport-based ergometers. Just like C2’s Indoor Rowers and SkiErgs, the BikeErg is a reliable, robust and practical machine.

With the same flywheel and LCD Performance Monitor, the BikeErg brings the strengths and features of Concept2’s other products to cycling. Ideal for home gyms, the BikeErg is versatile, allowing for different types of cardio workouts whilst offering a smooth and quiet ride.

Additionally, and unlike most stationary bikes, the BikeErg has a clutch – so when you stop pedalling, the flywheel keeps on spinning.

  • Performance monitor to track workouts
  • Smaller than most bikes and easily storable

4. Concept2 Skierg

The Concept2 SkiErg uses the same flywheel resistance and electronic system as all other Concept2 products. But, unlike any other products, the SkiErg provides a different type of workout; great for developing both strength and endurance, whilst also exercising the legs, arms and core.

With home gyms in mind, the SkiErg fits in perfectly. Its vertical design takes up very little floor space, and can easily be stored in a garage gym.  

  • Takes up very little floor space
  • LCD monitor to monitor workouts
  • Full body strength and endurance

5. SPIN Attack B1 Indoor Bike

Making spin bikes affordable, SPIN Attack have developed the B1 Indoor Bike. Designed with a friction brake pad resistance system for maximum performance, the bike is a great addition to any home gym.

With an optional console, it matches any other competitor spinning bike – whilst being pretty affordable, at only £490.00. Equally, with several adjustable settings, the bike can be suited for any user, allowing you to perform a range of cardio workouts from interval sprints to longer rides.

  • Sleek design
  • Affordable 
  • Adjustable resistance
