Who doesn't love cycling - the nature, the wind in your hair... but it's also one of the best cardio activities there is. You'll burn a huge amount of calories during the ride, plus you'll kick up your metabolism, which works much faster even after the ride is over. Plus, unlike running, it doesn't put as much strain on your hips and knees. But we don't want to talk about riding in the wilderness. We want to introduce you to an alternative to this great sport, which means you won't have to move a metre away from your gym. Introducing rotopeds.
Clearly the biggest advantage of rotopeds is that you can easily incorporate riding into your workout. The combination of cardio and weight training is the perfect combination for shedding excess pounds and sculpting your physique afterwards. So if you're not going for volume and you want to get a nice fit physique, a rotoped is the right choice for you. Plus, you'll be strengthening more muscles than you might think when you pedal - the calves and thighs work the most, of course, but when set to a heavier load you'll also engage your glutes, core, lower back, shoulders and triceps.
You'll find many different kinds of rotary bikes. A folding exercise bike can be easily folded and unfolded so it doesn't take up too much space, so it will come in handy especially for small home gyms and you can even take it in the car to the cottage. Magnetic rotopeds, on the other hand, contain an electromagnetic braking system that can evenly dispense the desired load automatically using an induction brake. There are also simpler rotopeds for the elderly, who can exercise their bodies despite reduced mobility.
At StrongGear, however, we have a rotoped for sale that will put everyone at ease. It's called the Air Bike, and if you have a gym, it's an absolute must-have - because it's one of the best and most efficient machines that combines cardio and weight training all at once. It's made from the highest quality steel and features a host of innovative solutions that make it deservedly considered a market leader.
Thanks to the special rubberized handles, you will engage your whole body when pedaling the exercise bike. You don't just use your legs to overcome the load, but your arms, back and entire core are also heavily involved in the process. The exercise bike is also designed to be ridden without your legs - just place them on the side handles and you can work your upper body. The armrests are also extra reinforced so you can lean on them properly while strengthening your arms. In the middle of the rotoped is a massive central frame, which has been reinforced compared to the previous version of the rotoped. The result is a perfectly stable and solid base that can easily withstand even the most dedicated athletes.
