How does it work?

While this exercise machine might look like your run-of-the-mill stationary bicycle, it's actually a unique way to work your quads and glutes in a supported squat.

You start by placing your feet on the pedals and your bum on the padded seat, then holding onto the handlebar. Next, you bend your knees as if you’re sitting in a chair and use your glutes, legs, core and arms to pull yourself back into an upright position.

This compound exercise works virtually every muscle in your body at once, as your legs, butt, arms and core are activated with each rep. This helps burn more calories for an efficient workout in less time.

The details

This machine comes with a digital monitor to track your reps, time spent and calories burned. It also features three levels of resistance to tailor your workout — each band adds about 10 kg of resistance.

In addition to standing squats, you can also use this machine for bent over rowing, deadlifts and chest presses. Once you're done working out, the bike folds quickly and can be stored almost anywhere in your home.

'Low impact, effective and, most importantly, fun!'

This "Amazon's Choice" product has won over shoppers, with a whopping 27,000 five-star reviews. Customers have called it a "great machine" that lets you "really feel the workout" on your abs, quad, bicep and glutes.

"Best low impact all-over workout EVER," one person shared, writing that they "highly recommend" this machine for an "all over body workout for toning."

Another reviewer found this workout to be "low impact, effective and most importantly, fun!"

"It’s impossible to do a bad squat on this bike," another person wrote.

Shoppers also praised this bike for being "easy to assemble" and "very easy to fold up." However, some shoppers wrote that they "do not find it particularly challenging" — even with all three bands activated.

This machine also has a weight limit of 220 pounds, so may not be suitable for everyone to use.

Verdict

For a way to shake up your fitness routine this year, the Sunny Health & Fitness Upright Row-N-Ride could be worth adding to your cart. Reviewers have praised its "versatility" that delivers an "effective" workout, though it may be better suited to beginners or those just starting out on their fitness journey.
