NordicTrack Commercial S22i Studio Cycle
The bike has a 22-inch interactive screen that allows you to cycle through the most beautiful landscapes in the world, or drop in on an on-demand iFit class with elite trainers. It also offers cross-training options, like yoga and strength training.
Better yet, the motor-free machine is built to be powered by your strides. There’s no max speed, either, so try your best to push it as hard as you can during sprint interval workouts.
Think you can handle the speed? Try this workout: Perform a 15-second sprint as fast as you can, and then rest for 15 seconds. Keep your chest high and your core braced the entire time you’re running. That’s 1 round. Do 40

“In order to drive the handles down toward your body, you have to use your abs, arms, shoulder, and hips,” says Sean De Wispelaere, expert coach from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. “The power, speed, and strength needed for each rep will jack up your heart rate and make you sweat.”
To make it even more difficult, change up the position of your legs, says De Wispelaere. Holding a deep lunge or inline lunge not only blasts your lower body, but it narrows your base of support, he says. This forces your core to work harder to stay braced and upright as your arms move up and down.

The reason it’s so tough: The Assault AirBike is a stationary bike without a motor. It only has a fan in its front wheel that provides wind resistance. The harder you pump your arms and pedal your legs, the higher the resistance becomes. “While it’s easy on your joints, it provides an intense aerobic workout that burns a ton of calories in a short amount of time,” says De Wispelaere.
If you’re looking for a finisher to tack onto your regular workout, De Wispelaere recommends sprinting for 15 seconds, then resting for 15 seconds. That’s one round. Do six. If you’d rather test your endurance instead, do three miles as fast as possible.

Schwinn Airdyne Bike Series
You’ll feel a slightly greater sense of power on the Airdyne, with each attacking pedal and push yielding a stronger response from the bike. And don’t dismiss the little comforts on this bike, either: You’ll be thankful for that cupholder in the console whenever you’re between intervals and gulping down water.
Jacob’s Ladder Step Machine
Unlike the StairMaster, Jacobs Ladder puts you on a 40-degree angle, which engages your core muscles and takes stress off your lower back.
“It’s fun, because it’s totally different than any other exercise you can do at the gym,” says De Wispelaere. “The climbing action hits big muscles like your quads, glutes, shoulders, and lats, revving your metabolism and burning a ton of calories in the process.”
Concept2 Rowing Machine

“It provides even resistance unlike other models that jerk or jump when you pull too vigorously,” says Ewell. “That means you can work as hard as possible, while maintaining a smooth ride.” And the harder you work, the more calories you’ll burn. A 185-pound guy can burn 377 calories by rowing at a fast clip for only 30 minutes, report researchers at Harvard University. Try it yourself with this intense rowing program.
You can drop in on live classes or take them on demand on your own time. It’s almost like having a fitness studio in your own space— minus having to deal with a group of sweaty houseguests when you’re finished.
