Indoor cycling, also known as "cycle" or "stationary cycling," has become an increasingly popular form of exercise over the past few decades. One of the main reasons for its popularity is that it is a low-impact form of cardio that is easy on the joints, making it suitable for people of all fitness levels and ages, as well as for those coming back from a break from exercise or those recovering from injury.
Over the decade, indoor cycling has undergone a number of changes and advancements. One of the most notable changes has been the development of smart indoor bikes (like our Body Bike Smart+), which allow riders to track their performance, set goals, and compete with other riders through virtual classes and simulations (like Zwift). Smart indoor bikes often come equipped with a variety of features, such as adjustable resistance, Bluetooth connectivity, and virtual coaching that make for a very tailored training experience for the rider.
Another major change we've seen has been the growth of virtual classes & on-demand streaming workouts (like those ridden with A STATE OF RIDE [LIVE]. These types of services allow riders to participate in live or pre-recorded classes from the comfort of their own homes, with the option to choose from a variety of instructors and class types. This has made it easier for people to fit indoor cycling into their busy schedules, as they can participate in a class at any time that is convenient for them.
With the introduction of smart technology and virtual classes making it more convenient and interactive than ever before, so whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner, indoor cycling is an excellent way to get in a great workout every day.
