I’ve always loved bike riding. As a kid riding my bike to the park, and now as an adult I do it as often as I can. I spent more money on my bicycle than I did on my car, if that’s any indication. It does take a toll on your body eventually, and I’ve noticed recently that my back and shoulders have been quite sore. A friend told me I should look at a recumbent exercise bike to help alleviate some of the pain, so I went straight to Lifespan Fitness to see if they could help. A recumbent exercise bike is a little different from your standard exercise bike in that you sit back in a much more ergonomic position which is great for your posture, as opposed to leaning forward all the time. My bodyweight gets distributed much more evenly instead of just on my hands and feet. After using a standard bicycle for so long, I admit I was a little hesitant to try the recumbent option but I’m already feeling better and I’m still having a lot of fun and getting a great workout, too. Lifespan Fitness have some great recumbent bikes and really good prices – well worth having a look.
