Equipment for temporary conversion of my bike into a stationary bike?

I'd like to start using my bike for transportation more often, but I'm really out of shape, so I was thinking about working on a stationary bike to build endurance. I've heard there's equipment you can set your bike on that temporarily converts it into a stationary bike, but when I've gone into shops or looked online, I'm not really sure what I'm looking for, and what I have found seemed extraordinarily expensive.

Is there a relatively cheap way to lift a bike into a stationary position, and what equipment would I need for that?

I'm not sure what you mean by relatively cheap. A trainer has to do more than just lift the rear wheel off the ground, it also has to provide some resistance, otherwise you won't get any exercise. A trainer also has to be sturdy enough to hold the bike securely without damaging the frame. Bike trainers start at prices below $100, if you find this too expensive, and it doesn't get too cold outside where you live, you can get in shape just as well by riding outside as you could by training indoors. A ride in the fresh air is also much more interesting than stationary training.
