Look, I've ridden the same Schwinn Airdyne bike for years. This is one rugged bike. If there is a classic exercise machine, this must be it. Exercise gadget fads come and go, the Airdyne just keeps going. And, the bad news is, you actually have to ride the thing to get the benefit. Yikes! Here's how to get going the right way...

Tip 1: What ya gonna do?

Goals. About 3 percent of adults have written goals. They're the ones who get things done... What do you want to accomplish? A specific weight loss amount? What is it? Write it down... please. Then get going... Maybe your goal is to exercise a certain amount of time or a certain number of times per week. Whatever it is, get it in writing and get it done starting now.

Tip 2: Today?

Why not start now? See, your exercise bike is just waiting for you to get going. Any time night or day, hot or cold, right or wrong is just the time to start. All you have to do is just get on and start. No fancy additional equipment required. No more courses. Nothing...

You don't even need to buy a book or video or read forums about exercise. The real key is to get on and pedal away. That's the way to get started.

Tip 3: Twenty minutes...

That is a great workout length. Any time will help, but there are several reasons why pedaling for twenty minutes is a great plan. If that's too long, can you set twenty minutes as a goal??? Actually a 12 minute workout can accomplish much, but add on four minutes on the front and back of the main twelve minutes and you get twenty minutes for a complete sort of workout.

Tip 4: Intervals...

Interval or circuit training is a fancy way to describe mixing up the pace a bit. That means push it hard for a little while, then back off for a bit, then repeat. This is easy to accomplish with a programmable bike, but requires a little thought with our Airdyne. Here's what I do. I push hard until I still can breathe in through my nose, but I want to breathe out through my mouth. So, I'm pushing hard, but I'm not out of breath. Back off until breathing is easier, then repeat. Another way to accomplish this is to vary the pace at 15 second intervals. Speed up for 15 seconds, then back down for 15 seconds and repeat.

Tip 5: Don't stop...

That means do it again tomorrow and the next day too. It's OK to take breaks, just don't stop. Regular workout sessions are the key to long-term success. It isn't how hard you ride or even how long. It's whether you keep at it.

My Schwinn Airdyne can take lots of abuse. It's a rugged machine that helps you get a great workout. It only works when I do though. That's the trick. Get on the thing and ride... Keep it up and progress is certain.
