Cycling is an excellent way to get your heart pumping.
Cardiovascular or aerobic workouts, such as cycling, strengthen your heart, lungs, and muscles. They also improve the flow of blood and oxygen throughout your body. This, in turn, can benefit your health in a number of ways, including:
(1) improved memory and brain functioning
(2) lower blood pressure
(3) better sleep
(4) improved blood sugar levels
(5) a stronger immune system
(6) better mood
(7) lower stress levels
(8) more energy
Depending on the intensity of your workout and your body weight, you can burn more than 600 calories an hour with a stationary bike workout. This makes indoor cycling an excellent workout option for burning calories quickly.
Burning more calories than you consume is the key to weight loss
