Indoor cycling has really taken off in the last few years. This is because there has never been so much emphasis placed on health and wellness, and part of that is getting enough exercise. This is easier when you have a piece of equipment in your own home that offers you the opportunity to workout wherever you have the time and inclination.
Why Indoor Cycling is So Popular
Cycling is the perfect way to warm up or burn calories. It does a good job of cardio pumping and muscle building all in one. The majority of personal instructors will insist every gym session begins with at least 10 minutes on a stationary bicycle.
The reason why gym instructors choose biking for warm-ups, and not running, is because there is the possibility of injury on a running machine. When a stationary bike is used to exercise, there is no chance of a fall or misstep.
In many countries and areas, the weather is not nice enough to go for a bike ride outside all the time. This can be a hassle for anyone who has chosen cycling as their method of staying fit or as a hobby. In a snowbound environment, waiting for the opportunity to go cycling can be a very long time. This is when having an indoor stationary cycle is such a good idea.
The indoor cycling community has really taken off with the addition of live spin classes that are available via an app. The classes are given by some of the best trainers in the world in a variety of categories and for people of all fitness levels. This has proven a very popular option for indoor cyclists who want to participate in spin classes, but can’t be bothered to make an appointment at the gym to reserve a bike or make their way through rush hour traffic to attend the class.
Two good options that offer the best-quality bikes with a variety of streaming options and workouts are the Echelon and the Petalon brands. Being able to be interactive with a live instructor in a motivational environment is the way people are set to exercise now and in the future.
Where is the Best Room to Put an Indoor Cycle?
Indoor cycling is a fun way to exercise for the whole family as well as individuals who have made 2019 the year where they raise their fitness levels or lose weight. The key to doing this is to make sure your indoor bicycle is in a place where it is easily accessible. There should also be adequate space around the equipment for free and easy movement during the live streaming spin cycle classes.
Most people prefer their indoor bike in their bedroom because it is there waiting for them to warm up on it when they wake in the morning. There is a growing trend to have indoor exercise bikes at work. Folks in communal buildings have even started to club together to buy one for their apartment landing.
Indoor exercise is fun and stationary cycles make it even more so.
