Pedal Your Way to Better Health
Hopping on a bike is a great way to get some exercise. Many people do not have the luxury to spend hours on the open road, however. At Spectrum Athletic Clubs, we understand that grabbing a fast, effective workout is a priority for many of our members. Thanks to our dedicated cycling studio, you can burn calories and build stamina without ever leaving the room.
Burn Fat and Lose Weight
Perhaps the two biggest benefits most cyclists enjoy is that working hard on a bike for just 30 minutes leads to losing weight and body fat. Researchers have found that your body’s metabolic rate is actually raised while you ride and remains elevated for several hours afterward. That means that you are burning calories and fat more efficiently even after your workout is over.
That same study also demonstrated that if you ride at fast intervals – a technique often incorporated in our classes – you stand to burn much more fat than cycling at a slower pace. In fact, a cyclist pedaling in intervals can tear through more than three times the amount of body fat than a cyclist who pumps at a slower pace.Read More
