For Christmas one year, my spouse purchased me a stationary bike.
Initially, I wasn’t sure how glad I would be with it.
I worried that cycling wouldn’t be a taxing enough workout. However, I swiftly learned that a bike is a entirely beneficial machine. It provides aerobic exercise separate from serious impact on my feet, ankles, knees plus hips… Because of how often I run for exercise, I have trouble with aching joints. I am always looking for effective ways to burn calories that are not so jarring on my body. The bike elevates my heart rate, works my lungs plus inspires a relaxing sweat. I can pedal faster plus increase resistance for greater difficulty. The bike has an easy to navigate touchscreen plus offers numerous programs. I can target distance, time or calories burned as the end goal. Because the bike is super quiet, I am able to workout when the rest of the family is sleeping plus not startle anyone. I listen to songs plus learn on my iPad while I pedal. The seat is super comfortable plus there’s a holder for my water bottle. The exercise is so relaxing that it feels like taking a day off. However, I can burn five hundred calories in an hour; Unlike riding an actual bike, I don’t need to worry about inclement weather, uneven pavement, mean dogs, exhaust fumes, traffic or bugs. I have access to a washroom plus control unit, plus I can be done whenever I want. The bike has turned out to be a main staple of my workout regimen.
