Loves it-- Golds Gym Upper and Lower Body Cycle

So I have been using my fantastic little peddler for about a month now in addition to my gym work and I LOVE IT!! I catch up on a lot of tv shows online bc I dont have DVR or TIVO or whatever, so I end up spending a lot of time at the computer instead of on the couch. This got me thinking, I have seen these under the desk bikes and I wondered if I would like it. Well I found this at walmart for $24 and I am SO glad I gave it a try!
I watch Biggest Loser or The Deep End or Greys Anatomy or Celebrity Fit Club or Ruby and I just Peddle Peddle Peddle. It has helped a lot with strengthening my legs. I have seen a big improvement in my squats and lunges. When I really want to multitask I also grab my 8 pound medicine ball and work my upper body! I'm sure I look like a dork doing it, but it is a nice way to get in a light workout while I catch up on some tv!! I want to try bringing this to work with me and using it under my desk...but I feel like that would be a bit odd... I dunno. I dont really have a close the door/hide away kind of work environment.


  1. Hi, does this also work the upper part of your body or just mainly the bottom?

  2. I have honestly never tried it for the upper body... Maybe I will do that an let you know.
    ok, pulled it up and put it on the desk... It's ok, but honestly resistance bands would be better. You can do a lot more with resistance bands than you think.

  3. fantastic job. i purchased a walmart peddler tonight and at first i wasnt so sure, maybe i should return it. however your jouney has inspired me to keep it! thank u and God bless

  4. I have it and it is great

  5. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

  6. Hi, I know this post is very old. I was wondering, however if you lost any weight when you were using the cycle.
