Some types of apparatus used in pilates machine classes definitely offer resistance training, as well as stretching and flexibility. It would also depend on how high a resistance or how heavy a weight is used, as well as the number of times (repetitions) the exercise is repeated. Strength training is probably best to build muscle. ...Read more

Is exercising on a stationary cycle beneficial for weight loss & reduction of abdominal obesity?

Partially: Any exercise can contribute to weight loss. Stationary cycling can burn 400-500 calories/hr; one pound is 3500 calories, so you would have to exercise 8-9 hrs to burn up 1 pound.

Exercise and diet both play important roles in weight loss. ...Read more
