I recently received a Marcy Air 1 fan exercise bike made by the company Impex Fitness as my birthday present from my family member. Well, I actually received it at the end of July 2013.
I didn’t want to write the Marcy Air 1 fan exercise bike review yet until I had given enough time to test it out first. I think I have owned this bike for about three months and I have been fully using it for about two and a half months.
I was using it at least three times a week and every time is for about half an hour. Sometimes it might be for an hour. I haven’t been using it for the last two to three weeks because I was sick from a cold. I can tell you that I am loving this bike.
I am ready to be back continuing working with my bike. I have been taking a long break from it. I did lose about 5 to 7 pounds from working with my bike from that time frame. I think that is a pretty good result. As you know, losing an extra pound is pretty hard and I did eat a lot of chips.
Someone lost even more weight than me, like 60 pounds, when he or she was using this bike for over six months. You will also have very good results too if you are dedicated to your workouts.
Actually, losing weight is not the real reason I requested for this bike. My real reason is I have lack of exercise, so I wanted something to give me some exercise. I don’t mind losing some weight though. I do need my tummy and legs to be a little tighter.
Benefits Of Owning Marcy Air 1 Bike
What exactly the exercise bike has to offer?
Here are the things that this exercise bike has to offer.
- It has a big computer screen display for easily reading the numbers.
- It has a built in fan to keep you cool while you are doing your workout. I was looking at other exercise bikes, but I preferred to have an exercise bike with a fan.
As you know, if you want to have a decent workout you will bound to have sweat and you want something to help out as much as possible.
Here is what I do with my work out routine. I will have a nice work out for at least 30 minutes. When I am done, I will ask one of my family members (mostly my youngest son) to do their exercise and I will sit in front of the the fan to cool myself off. How cool is that? It will also help me to save some electricity on the bill. 😛
- It has transport wheels to move it to whatever room you want it to be in. Even I can move it to my room by myself.
- The bike also has a built in computer so you can track your speed, distance, calories and time.
- The screen will display the current room temperature and time when it is not being used.
- The fan is fairly quiet so I can be able to watch TV while doing my workout. If the TV show is really good, I would even forget I am pedaling my bike and before I know it, I have already finished 30 minutes workout.
That’s the reason why I picked a machine that has a seat so I can watch TV at the same time. I certainly don’t want to fall off while watching TV with other machines that require me to stand up.
- The Air 1 fan exercise bike has a two years limited warranty. I would like to remind you, normally a product has a 1 year warranty.
- The bike is pretty small. It really doesn’t take up that much space in your room.
- With this bike your arms can also have a workout as well, because the handles are moving back and forth if you are pedaling the machine.
- The pedals have a strap belt on each side of your foot, so your feet won’t fall off or out of place.
Marcy Fan Bike Video
Okay, I have made a video for the Marcy Air bike. I thought you might see it better in the video than just seeing it from a picture. I always enjoy watching videos than just only pictures. If you haven’t watched it from the top of this page then you can watch it from below video.
Marcy Air 1 Review
I am giving a 90% rating for this exercise bike. I took off 10% because I would like to have the current local time being displayed while the bike is being used. I mean, I need to know the time of the day to get ready to do other things, such as picking up my kids. It also would be nice to have a light up display screen for better viewing of the numbers.
As you see below the average rating for this Marcy Air 1 bike is 84% by the consumers. If they don’t like this bike, they wouldn’t give it a very high rating. That average rating number comes from 32 users and it is not including me.
Average Consumer Rating: 84%
Pros & Cons
Pros: This is an affordable and durable exercise bike. We could have saved some more money if we were buying it online. The machine appears to be made with heavy metal and less plastic and that makes it more durable.
The seat is made out of high density foam, so it is very comfortable to sit on. Either if you are tall or short you can use this bike, for example my son is 4 feet and my other family member is 6 feet 1, and both of them are enjoying using this bike. The pedals are also large and comfortable to use.
Cons: I really don’t have that many cons to say, other than adjusting the seat to the level I want is a little hard and my son is always adjusting the seat to his level and he wouldn’t fix it afterward.
My son is only 8 years old and he likes to ride on my Marcy fan bike Air 1 when he is bored. Like I said before, it would be great to be able to see the current local time while doing my workouts.
Note: If you need to replace the batteries, the clock will need to be readjusted.
Bottom Line: I would recommend the Marcy fan bike to anyone who wants to be in good shape and have a very nice workout.
