What is the Best Exercise Bike for Seniors?
Reaching the ripe age of seniority is a blessing but that does not mean you have to embrace a dull and sedentary lifestyle. Sure, you have to slow down and embrace a rather slow-paced life but it can’t be the reason to avoid all forms of exercise altogether. If anything, being a senior means you have to take better care of your body and that means engaging in some light exercises.
There are a lot of benefits of working out – it influences to embrace better habits such as eating properly, avoiding alcohol, cigarettes, and other nasty habits. With that said, the only thing left to consider is to choose the type of exercise. There are a lot of options out there but if you’re not one to join groups and engage in a Zumba session or find jogging too boring, then you might want to consider getting an exercise bike.
Benefits of Exercise Bikes
Exercise bikes also called stationary bikes, are pieces of cardiovascular equipment that are generally easy to use. Bikes provide a no-impact aerobic workout that can strengthen and tone the muscles of the legs and buttocks.
Exercise bikes have enjoyed increasing popularity over the last few years, partly because of ‘spinning’ classes (group cycling classes offered by many gyms) and the need of an aging public for lower-impact forms of exercise. The current crop of stationary bike models is fairly sophisticated. A quick look at one and you’ll see features that go beyond counting miles and tracking speed. Some even have multiple programs that manage and change exercise pace, count burned calories, and measure heart rate. The more sophisticated ones can even connect to the Internet, allowing users to maintain an online record of exercise sessions to chart progress.
There are multiple benefits of getting exercise bikes. They generally require very little maintenance. A clean and oiled chain takes care of most potential problems. Basic exercise (pedaling) is very easy to learn. Since it doesn’t require much physical exertion, it lessens the risk of injury or strain. Users can easily learn exercises by watching a variety of workout videos available on various media platforms.
