whats the difference between the excercise bike that sits you upright like a real bike or the one on the floor (mini) that you (im guessing) lay down and pedal?

 

what difference does it do when it comes to toning the legs and abs? any one better?

*****side question******

anyone know if kick boxing is only leg excerise or is it also including regular boxing ?

The regular bike is better, your whole body is engaged on it. Kickboxing is also an entire body workout. You learn punching, kicking, and boxing moves. It's very intense. Two girls threw up in the first class I took.

Idk on the bike I don't use machines too often. Kickboxing sometime includes punching and tones legs, abs, and arms

Joining a gym? Or just a class? 

If you are joining a full gym, classes are optional and you don't have to take them.. CFT get paid on commission at most gyms so the more people in class, the more $$ they make, but they don't force you into a class if you are not ready. 

Don't just rely on a bike though. You should take advantage of all of the equipment in a gym- treadmill, bike, elliptical, rower, ladder, stepper, weights... You should be doing cardio 4-5x per week for 30-60 minutes each workout and you should be strength training 2-3x per week for 30-45 minutes per workout. It is best if you work different muscle groups each workout and you should have 48 hours between resistance training days to allow your muscles adequate time to restrand and rebuild. 

As far as kickboxing, it is a great workout as it works many different large and small muscle groups at one time.

Kick boxing incorporates the whole body. I never used the bike it doesn't give me a good work out. Try the elliptical or treadmill.

 Kick boxing includes basically all muscles.
