JLL Home Exercise Bike JF100

JLL Home Exercise Bike JF100

This sturdy upright bike offers an impressively smooth and quiet ride, at a bargain price. Relatively basic, it will be particularly good for beginners who are keen to do some cardio workouts at home.

Apex Bike

Apex Bike

The Apex bike is a slightly cheaper alternative to a Peloton but without an inbuilt screen – it has place for you to attach your own. It’s a bit on the heavy side, but is worth considering as it is good value, all told.

Ultrasport F-bike Trainer

Ultrasport F-bike Trainer

At 14kg, the Ultrasport F-bike is reassuringly solid, and its folded dimensions of 131 x 43.5 x 45cm mean it can be tucked away to save space when not in use. It has eight resistance levels and comes in seven different colours.
