Individuals are a lot more likely to stay consistent with an exercise that they enjoy. A fun and safe work out for weight-loss patients is biking. Biking is a great alternative to running for people with heavier frames as it places no impact on the knees. Biking requires tons of effort but does not stress an individual’s joints. The best part is how enjoyable the entire process is. The wind and change of scenery paired with the exhilaration of going down a hill is amazing. Also, since it is a form of transportation, biking is exercise that can fit into life without getting in the way. If people bike to get to their daily destinations than they will burn more calories and lose more weight. The other beautiful part about biking is that it can be done at various intensities. Biking also makes it easy to do interval training and even workout inside. There are a lot of cycling studios and outside riding groups that create a sense of community among their riders. This community creates a sense of belonging which ultimately leads to more consistent workouts.
