Whether he can't miss a day at the gym or is hoping to jumpstart a fitness regimen, Father's Day is a perfect occasion to gift Dad a fancy new tool to make exercising from home fun again.

Plenty of retailers currently have products in stock, but can't guarantee delivery in two days. Luckily, Academy Sports + Outdoors has the option to buy online and pick up in store. Academy also offers free 2-day shipping on orders over $25 with sign in.

"Great quality. Easy to use. Don’t let the simplicity fool you. This will give you a full workout," said a satisfied customer.

Features in this bike that Dad will love include a full-color LCD screen, a Bluetooth-enabled armband that tracks heart rate and a complimentary 1-year JRNY membership ($149 value) so he can select from tailored workouts. It's also compatible with Peloton and Zwift exercise apps.

"I did a lot of research before purchasing this bike. It was between this and the Bowflex (they are from the same company). But I loved this because I did not want the monitor, I just put my headphones in and ride. The seat is a little uncomfortable and takes some getting used to, but it's a quiet, sturdy ride and I absolutely love and enjoy my bike," wrote a workout enthusiast.
