Indoor Casual Workout
In the past year, I have noticed how climates are changing around the world and shifts in weather patterns are as moody as a woman with her period. With Mother Earth trying to overcome PMS, a lot of us are kept indoors, and would just have to get creative to be able to turn our outdoor exercise regimen, to indoor workout heaven. One of the things that I like about bike trainers is how it allows us to do just that. Simply attach your regular bike to the Bell Motivator Mag Indoor Bicycle Trainer and take out the resistance by adjusting the knobs. Voila! You have successfully set up an indoor bike trainer that doubles as a spinning trainer. Put the resistance back in, and you’ll feel like you’re back on the road again.
While the top-of-the-line indoor bike trainers are usually of the fluid mechanical type, magnetic trainers such as the Bell Motivator Mag Indoor Bicycle Trainer are less costly, yet efficient.
Too Noisy for the Neighbors
If you live in an apartment, and most especially if you have young children or elder parents or grandparents who need a lot of sleep and are living with you, I would not recommend using the Bell Motivator Mag Indoor Bicycle Trainer, unless you would take out the resistance provided. The whirring noise is definitely too loud for your neighbors, or your sleeping kids and elders.
As in other magnetic bikes, you can break free from the resistance when you are executing hard sprints on your indoor trainer. Other users of the Bell Motivator Mag Indoor Bicycle Trainer have also mentioned that even without the hard sprints, the resistance provided is still weaker than expected. It is because of this and the noise that most users would rather opt to buy the more expensive fluid trainer, instead.
Whether it be used to warm up or cool down during competitions or, during a nasty Polar Vortex winter, or a hot and humid summer spell, a bicycle trainer is a must-have for cyclists of all athletic levels. The Bell Motivator Mag Indoor Bicycle Trainer, specifically suits cyclists who are looking into a more affordable, yet reliable option to the more expensive, high-end fluid bike trainers.
