7 Reasons To Start Spinning

7 Reasons To Start Spinning

Jul 23, 20210 comments

Exercise doesn’t always come easily to us, especially when it comes to beginners just starting out their fitness regimes or perhaps someone trying to get back into exercising after a long hiatus. Well, there’s no reason to wait any longer because if accessibility, affordability and benefits are your concerns, then there’ll be no need to worry anymore. In recent years, people have increasingly taken a hard look at fitness with data from the IHRSA (The Global health and Fitness Association) which found that over 1 in 5 Americans belonged to a health club or studio as of 2019.

Recently however, the focus has shifted from fitness centres towards home fitness. Home fitness is a double-edged sword in that it provides you with the perfect opportunity and convenience to work out however and whenever you choose, wasting minimal time. However, at the same time working out from home comes with its drawbacks of having a multitude of distractions which people use as an excuse to not work out.

Ultimately, it is your choice to make on whether or not to start spin cycling but if you do, here are some of the key benefits that could change your life:

  1. A Bike a Day Keeps the Doctor Away: Although getting on a bike might seem so simple at first glance, its impact on the human body is tremendous. For one, studies from the British Medical Journal have linked increased rates of coronary heart disease to a sedentary lifestyle since the 1950s. This is especially relevant when noting that coronary heart disease is linked to others such as heart attack and stroke. The benefits of spinning bikes also extend past the heart with the working of your lower body also strengthening your muscles and bones which lower the risk of injury and even osteoporosis and arthritis later in life.

  1. Less Excuses and More Action: Feeling too tired to work out or maybe just not in the mood? That’s exactly how exercise regimes end. Sticking to your schedule is the most surefire way of getting the results you want. With the ultimate convenience of having a bike at home and being able to listen to an audiobook, watch a movie or listen to your favorite music while exercising, there’s no reason why you should skip the bike today, tomorrow, or ever again.

  1. Customizable Workouts for Ideal Results: You can’t go wrong with indoor spinning bikes, whether it’s the dead of winter or heat of summer. However, it’s important to know how to pace yourself since going 120% all the time during your workout won’t cut it. That’s why our bikes have up to 22 different levels of resistance, fans to help you cool off and Wifi connectivity to allow you to connect to the iFit program which offers personalized coaching regimes to users around the world.

  1. Energy In and Out of the Bed: According to the Sleep Foundation and John Hopkins Medicine, exercise has been proven to facilitate deeper and better quality sleep with even participants of moderate exercise for a couple hours a week shown to experience far improved sleep length and quality compared to those who didn’t exercise.

Similarly, participants of both sexes have also been shown to experience improved performance under the sheets with regular exercise. Men reported an increase of 15% in testosterone after only 2.5hrs of exercise a week while women experienced a boost in sexual arousal after a mere 20 minutes.

  1. Getting the Gains: Of course, any conversation about fitness and exercise would be amiss if you didn’t have one person mentioning their muscle gains in an effort to show off. While there’s nothing wrong about building muscle just for show, it also helps your body. Regular cycling targets the body’s lower muscle groups such as the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and lower back which improves your balance, stamina and bone strength while decreasing your risks of falling, injuries and more.

  1. A Healthy Body - One Calorie at a Time: Exercise burns fat, what a shocker! Cycling at a high intensity has been shown to lower body fat levels and promote healthy weight management. However, it’s important to understand that regular cycling in and of itself isn’t the main cause of your weight decrease but instead, your appetite. Habitual aerobic exercise such as cycling has been observed to decrease a participant's appetite. Therefore, a big reason why people who exercise are fit is that they don’t go downstairs at midnight to forage for snacks.

  1. A Stress-Free Life: Nowadays, mental health has gained far more traction than before. A person isn’t considered to be healthy without their mind being in the right place. That’s why it’s so crucial that we focus on what matters most. Published journals from Harvard Health have proven regular aerobic exercise (i.e. exercises involving repetitive motions taking place over a longer period of time) releases endorphins and dopamine (the body’s “happy” hormones) while also reducing the body’s level of stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol which has been shown to not only improve mood but also lower the risk of anxiety and even, depression.
