The Home-spun Goodness of an In-door Exercise Bike in Your Personal Space
This entry was posted on October 21, 2014.
Winter is just about here and soon it will be time for even the most avid outdoor enthusiast to pack it up and bring the workout inside – at least some of the time. Bike riding is not only fun-fitness, but most of us learned how to ride a bike in childhood (ever dare to cycle the Mississippi River Trail, the famous MRT, when you were a kid?). Bike riding becomes so natural once you learned how to ride. Riding outdoors gives you an integral experience of freedom of movement and the outdoor element of sun, breeze, trees, blue skies, and the ground beneath you. However, cycling doesn’t have to begin and end outdoors. Bring your racing bikes and ElliptiGos in for a much needed break to experience the benefits of a recumbent or stationary bike and incorporate it into your overall bike-riding regimen.
In-door exercise bikes are very popular among workout enthusiasts. Great for small spaces, many models are lightweight and foldable for easy storage. Recumbent or stationary bikes are especially ideal fitness equipment if you are overweight – these bikes are a good alternative to a treadmill when beginning a workout regimen at a lower fitness level. An indoor bike will help you get the needed cardio to burn fat with less impact on the joints over a treadmill. Exercise bike workouts mainly target the leg muscles, but some models do have moveable arms for an upper body workout to increase cardio and a fan wheel to keep you cool while you spin. A great time to get working out on a stationary bike is while you are watching TV – spinning and calorie-burning versus just sitting being a couch potato.
