Our oh so busy lives often make it hard to commit to a regular workout outside our homes. But what if you could get a good cardio workout at home without even having to stop your work?
A stationary exercise bike is the perfect investment to ensure a regular and efficient workout whilst improving your heart, lung and muscle function. You can play around with different workout routines that will assist you in achieving your fitness goals.
A Stationary Bike is beneficial in more ways than one. Read along to find out how:
1. Improves your cardio fitness

- mood & stress levels &
- overall energy
2. Provides a low-impact, high-intensity workout that burns fat
A stationary bike provides a low-impact workout that is friendlier to your joints. You can burn over 600 calories an hour, depending on your body weight and the intensity of your workout, making indoor cycling an excellent choice for losing weight swiftly.
In a 2010 research, participants who combined indoor cycling with a low-calorie diet significantly reduced their overall body fat percentage. It also reduced their triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
3. Permits interval training
Interval training is when you alternate longer intervals of less strenuous activity with briefer bursts of more intense exercise. With this kind of workout, you can improve your aerobic fitness and burn more calories in less time.
With the variable resistance levels offered by stationary bikes, you may work out at low, medium, or high intensities. Some bikes come with a tablet, further offering an immersive and interactive workout experience that can boost the user's mood while keeping them motivated.
4. Convenience & safety
While there is no doubt that cycling outside can be terrific exercise, there are factors that make indoor cycling an even better option.
It can be challenging to gather the urge to get outside when the weather is unfavourable. Hot & muggy or chilly & rainy days often become the perfect excuse for skipping exercise. You don't have to fret about the weather, road conditions, or traffic when cycling indoors.
Not to mention, it is also incredibly convenient to cycle at home. You can do it anytime, even while attending calls, certainly enabling workout consistency.
