Benefits of Indoor Cycling

Indoor cycles are a great investment for anyone to make. Not only are they used by almost
all pro athletes but they are also becoming more common for individuals to have because of
their accessibility and reliability. With all of that being said, let’s take a look at some of the
benefits of indoor cycling.

The benefits of indoor cycling include weight loss, overall improvement of your
fitness, and well being. You will notice an increase in lower body strength. Some
benefits also include accessibility and safety. If you have one of these bikes in your
home, you will also end up saving a significant amount of money.

In this article, we are going to take a look at all of these benefits in a little bit more detail.
Once we have gone through this list and have discussed everything that we need to, we are
going to take a look at two of the best indoor cycles that you can get. We will include a
premium option and a more budget-friendly one.

7 Benefits Of Indoor Cycling

Here is a list of 7 benefits that you can expect to receive from indoor cycling. We will list the
benefits and then talk a little bit about each one. Let’s get into it.
Indoor cycling is great for shedding weight quickly.
● It helps to increase your lung capacity which will improve your overall fitness.
● Indoor cycling will raise your heart rate which is good for your overall health.
● Indoor cycling is accessible.
● The safety features are unrivaled.
● You can watch sport, TV, or listen to music while indoor cycling.

Lose Weight

I have decided to add this to this list first because it is the main reason why people start exercising and one of the main benefits of indoor cycling is your ability to lose weight while doing it.

The amount of weight that you lose depends on the intensity of your cycling and also your current weight. Someone who is heavier that does the same amount of work as somebody who is lighter will lose more weight and burn more calories.

A person who is average weight and who cycles at medium intensity will burn approximately 250 calories every 30 minutes. If you cycle at full intensity you can lose up to 320 calories every 30 minutes. If you weigh more than average, you can increase these numbers. When we mention the average weight person we are talking about somebody who is between 119 to 125 pounds. So, if you weigh more than that you will burn more calories than what we listed above.

Increase Your Lung capacity (Fitness)

The greater your lung capacity is the more fit you are generally. That said, indoor cycling is great at helping you increase your lung capacity. While cycling indoors, it is important to remember to breathe properly by taking deep breaths through your mouth and exhaling through your nose. This will maximize the efficiency of your training and will allow you to go further. It is also the best way of increasing your lung capacity.

Increase Your Heart Rate

I could have just made one section called “improve your cardiovascular system” but I want to be slightly more specific. That is why heart rate and lung capacity are separate in this article. When you cycle indoors you increase your heart rate. This improves blood flow and contributes to your overall fitness and the well-being of important organs such as your heart. With all of that being said, it is important never to overdo it. You need to give your heart a rest so you should take at least one or two days a week where you completely rest from exercise, especially from cardio.

Improved Lower-body Strength

You could be quite fit and still struggle to do things like running or cycling simply because your leg muscles are not strong enough to carry out certain activities while holding your body weight.

Indoor cycling is incredible at building up upper leg strength and this will help you do more activities and, in the long run, it will make you a lot fitter. In fact, most athletes who play football or soccer have indoor cycles in their room and they cycle at least a few times a week.

Accessibility

Now that we have gone through the health benefits of indoor cycling, I think it is time to talk about things such as accessibility. Being able to cycle and stay fit without having to leave your home is great. This is only a small contributor to its accessibility. When cycling indoors, whether you are at a gym or at home, you don’t have to worry about bike lanes, you don’t have to worry about traffic or anything like that. You can simply get on the bike and start cycling.

Safety

When it comes to safety, indoor cycling is probably your best option. You don’t have to worry about being run over by a car, you don’t have to worry about being mugged, and you don’t have to worry about you maybe knocking over a pedestrian. I’m not saying that outdoor cycling is not great because it is but this safety feature is just one feature that adds to why indoor cycling is a great option for almost everyone.

Entertainment

Some indoor cycles such as the Peloton, come with monitors that have internet browsers where you can stream your music from. You can even watch your Netflix shows on it. If you are into fitness, I can safely assume that you are into sport and you might be able to catch up on your sport while cycling.

It’s not just about TV shows and music. A lot of bikes allow you to track your progress and it also allows you to cycle with people all across the world. With the statistics that some of these bikes can show you, you can compete with people in real-time. In my opinion, competing is a great way to maximize your workouts.

2 Great Indoor Cycles

Now that we have discussed the benefits of indoor cycling, we are going to talk about the top
two best indoor cycles that you can get. It is important to remember that the better your cycle is, the more benefits you will receive and that is the main reason why we added this section to this article.

Peloton

We can sit here all day and talk about the premium quality of the materials that get used
when building a Peloton bike but the reason why Peloton made it onto this list is purely
through the features that it offers.

Paying a small subscription every month, you get access to a library of constantly updated
workouts and you have the ability to virtually cycle with other people. This subscription might
save you money as you will no longer have to pay for spinning classes. You will be able to
do all of this in the comfort of your home.

Sunny Health & Fitness Indoor Cycling Bike

While this bike does not have a monitor attached to it for you to entertain yourself or to keep
track of your progress, this bike is made this list because it has a wealth of features that help
you while cycling. It does this at a great price of under $300.

When using this bike you can count on its stability and consistency to maximize your
workout. This bike is best for people who are short on time and who don’t have the time to
play around with any gadgets. You simply adjust the bike to your preferences when you first
get it and from then on, you get on it and go.

Conclusion

One benefit that I did not list has to do with your mental well-being. The time you spend on
an indoor cycle can be used to think about things going on in your life from a different
perspective. Think of the time you spend on the bike as “your time” where you don’t have to
worry about anyone else or anything else.

Here is a list of the newest indoor stationary bikes on the market.
