Cycle fitness classes
Pedal to the metal
Whether the route in your head is the Otago Rail Trail or the Tour de France, riding a stationary bike will benefit the knees, ankles, and hip joints.
Repeat the cycle
As you pedal, all those joints rotate, improving their range of motion and strengthening them. You'll also improve your endurance and stamina.
You'll wheelie love it!
As well as being a great way to get your cardio fix, stationary cycle fitness classes are a highly effective way to burn calories while strengthening your heart, lungs, and muscles.
Life in the fast lane
Cycling is also a great way to shed fat from your lower body as cycling activates the glutes (which leads to back stability), quads, hamstrings and calves. This gives you a better walking and running technique as well as enhancing your day-to-day movements.
Take the wheel
You can also adjust the resistance of the wheel. This ultimately helps improve the strength of your legs and lower body.
All tyred out
And the perks don't stop there. Mental benefits include improving brain function, cognitive function, memory and attention span. The endorphins released during a typical stationary bike workout and the act of pedalling play a key role in this.
