Hop on a bike without a helmet? Mum would definitely shake her head.
But there’s an exception to every rule: Cycle (aka “spinning,” its trademarked name) is a cardiovascular, butt-kicking workout that takes us on a stationary but sweaty ride of our life. A high intensity, low impact, head to toe workout on a bike, led by passionate and charismatic instructors.
Cycle is definitely no ride in the park, though. It guarantees to amp up VO2 max (the rate oxygen is carried to the muscles), a sign the body is being pushed. All that pedaling will tone up the legs too, working the quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves, and core. Studies have also found that indoor cycling can help shed unwanted pounds and potentially ward off migraines, while keeping impact on the joints to a minimum .
