Sit N Cycle is a specially designed stool with pedals that allows you to maintain a pedaling motion as you sit, meaning you can stay active while doing any activity that requires sitting.
It has minimal resistance, meaning you don’t have to overly exert yourself to see benefits from it. You simply cycle while you sit.
The Sit N Cycle is a Smooth Fitness product sold under the "As Seen on TV" brand.
How the Sit N Cycle Claims to Work
The Sit N Cycle has a hands free design that apparently forces you to sit upright while using it, meaning that your core muscles will be engaged while strengthening your back in the process. Your legs and butt will also be worked out as you pedal. It apparently helps you to strengthen your body while losing weight as you do other activities like read, knit, watch TV or talk on the phone.
It is lightweight so it can be carried with ease, but also has wheels on the bottom for rolling from place to place. The Sit N Cycle comes in five available colors.

Just started falling apart
Received this from my son for a valentines gift on QVC. After taking over a one and half hour I finally got it assembled. I finally got the seat adjusted that didn't want to stay in place so my knees want hurt.
I pedaled on it night after night from 45 mins to an hour. I was really enjoying it until it started making a strange noise so I pedaled backwards and it stopped. I received it on the 18th of FEB started workout on the 19th and the pedal fell off on MARCH 1.
I have unassembled on the 3rd and now ready to take to the UPS.
It really has helped my stiff lower back. After Every session i feel taller & my posture has Really improved. I peddle 30 minutes watching The evening news every night~ love the Multitasking concept! I thought it would be Difficult to balance but that is not the case at All. Core strength is everything! Snap it up!
I have had this for about a month and used it almost daily.
So far I have really enjoyed it, and am having some good results (slight weight loss and strengthening of core muscles).
A few hints for other users:
- You must use your core muscles for balance. If you sit on this piece of equipment like a sack of potatoes, you will probably fall off!
- Take your time with assembly and follow the instructions carefully, especially with regards to the pedals.
- This is billed as a LOW RESISTANCE piece of exercise equipment. It is not supposed to be for spin classes or other intense workouts. I would say it is good for beginners or people looking to supplement their workouts.
I got on the so called sturdy workout bike thing and was reading a book as they say you can do with no problem! I fell over sideways, the whole right side pedal fell off and it is now unusable... what a piece of junk!!!
The pedals do not stay on and the the most important part - the tension - doesn't work. I called customer service to get a fix on these 2 problems and solution was to send back and so they would replace it. Fine, but I had to cart it to a fedx store... During the order process, they messed up my email address so I have to call fedx and ask them if they will print out a shipping label. Is it really worth it for me to ship back and forget all my expense - especially after 20 emails and 10 phone calls!!
Ad claims u can do anything that requires sitting down while using it - I use a Huffy all metal exercise bike from the 50's daily, and the US made Huffy never made such an ignorant claim in it's advertisement. you can't drive a car or operate a boat or a truck or a crane or do 100 other things that require sitting. The Huffy is more then 40 years old and works fine. The Sit N Cycle comes with a lousy "limited" what ever that means 90 day on integral parts warranty. What a piece a JUNK ! If all the faith they have adds up to 90 days for $200.00 you'll do better on CL yard sales or maybe even a thrift shop then that deal. Granted the sit n cycle is a really nice looking piece of junk. None the less it is what it is, asian made JUNK! Don't buy it !
Sitncycle exercise bike not for short people
it is not for a short person as they can not get on it, I am 4'11 and I have to get on something to get on it, and I can not reach the pedals.
