Cycling workout with variable resistance: Cycling is a low impact exercise that helps to improve muscle strength and maintains proper mobility of lower part of the body. It is also easier and less risky than other types of complicated exercises - hence this is convenient for seniors. The new cycle exerciser offers an isotonic workout for the abdominal and leg muscles thereby helping in post-surgical or post-stroke rehabilitation to regain mobility. Regular cycling exercise protects the joints from arthritis or similar disorders. Burns excess fat on hips and thighs, thereby improving muscle tone. Static pedalling on the new cycle exerciser while sitting upright, makes use of thigh muscles: quadriceps (or quads on front of leg) during downward push and hamstrings (on back of leg) during upstroke, thus maintaining better muscle tone and relieving pressure on the knees unlike normal cycling. It also helps in better metabolism and reduces obesity risk.
Pedal Straps: The straps provide firm grip and support to the feet while pedalling and prevents accidental sprains/strains from slipping of the feet
Aluminium Body: The unit is lighter yet than local steel indoor cycles, as it is made of oxidized aluminium. Durable and resistant to damage even after prolonged use.
