Why Should You Try Indoor Cycling?

Indoor cycling is a popular method of cardiovascular exercise.  The average indoor cycling participant burns anywhere from 500-700 calories in a 60 minute class – making indoor cycling a great choice.  With the use of the M3 Indoor Cycle – Keiser’s award-winning, third-generation, indoor cycle, the benefits of indoor cycling are many.

Low Impact

One of the major benefits of cycling is that it’s a low impact workout, meaning that it is gentle on your joints, especially the knees. This makes it an ideal exercise for those with knee problems or who are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Those who are inactive because of these conditions tend to develop balance problems. Stationary cycling allows them to perform cardiovascular exercise without the fear of falling or worrying about steering a traditional bike. They can work on their balance without the fear of an injury.

Weight Loss

Regular indoor cycling is an effective way to lose weight or maintain a healthful weight. In an hour, a 155-pound person will burn 493 calories cycling at a moderate pace, according to NutriStrategy.com. To increase your caloric burn, pedal faster or with increased resistance. If possible, stand and sprint on the bike or perform short intervals to elevate your heart rate.

Overall Health

Cycling is an aerobic and an anaerobic workout. According to MayoClinic.com, this decreases your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Regular exercise also lowers your risk of metabolic syndrome and certain types of cancers. It’s also an effective way to manage chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol and it increases your stamina

Other Benefits

Stationary cycling has many health benefits. It strengthens your heart, lungs and immune system. Cycling also builds strength and tones your quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and glutes. According to MayoClinic.com, a study found that when older adults exercised for at least 30 minutes, three times a week, they had a decrease in cognitive decline. Indoor cycling also increases mobility and joint flexibility in older adults. It’s also an ideal workout for those with back problems because it isn’t jarring to the spine.
