It's that time of year again. Christmas has come and gone faster than you would have liked and the numbers on your weighing scale is a little more than you had planned.
But never fear, help is here!
To start your journey and get back on track, why not buy the Smart Cycling Turbo Trainer? Here are 6 reasons why this is the best option for you this year.
IT CAN HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS
When going on your weight loss journey there are 5 main pillars that you need to incorporate into your routine: cardio (aerobic), strength (resistance) training, core exercises, balance and flexibility training.
Having a Turbo Trainer can help you achieve your weekly cardio goal and aid in your weight loss. You should aim to include 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per week. That’s about 30 minutes for 5 days.
Cardio is a great way of getting your heart rate up as well. This helps your heart pump blood and oxygen all over your body which, in time, will increase your body strength. Since your heart is also a muscle, it too will reap the benefits of a good cardio workout. Your heart will get stronger enabling it to pump more blood and oxygen around your body, helping your breathing and endurance.
YOU CAN DO HIIT WORKOUTS
HIIT, also known as High-Intensity Interval Training, is a brilliant way of burning loads of calories in a relatively short amount of time. You can do HIIT exercises using the Smart Turbo Trainer, just use the adjustable resistance features to modify the intensity. Your HIIT workout should consist of short 30-second bursts of your maximum effort followed by long 120-second 'rest' periods of low-intensity movement. You can repeat this cycle (Cycle, get it?) for 10-30 minutes.
SUITABLE FOR ANY FITNESS LEVEL
This Smart Turbo Trainer is suitable for all fitness levels. It has adjustable resistance options and a maximum slop of 15%. Because of its adjustability, it is excellent for both high-intensity days and low-intensity days.
STRENGTHENS THE LOWER BODY
Cycling targets your lower body, particularly your leg and glute muscles. Legs are useful things and strengthening them is an excellent way to help your body out and increase your functional mobility. So, if you’re used to sitting around all day, using this Smart Turbo Trainer will help activate those hibernating muscles.
GREAT FOR MISERABLE DAYS
The British weather is no longer an excuse for not getting onto your bike. You can use the Smart Turbo Trainer in your living room, kitchen, bedroom…anywhere! With this flexibility, you can train anytime you like and no longer need to wait for the rain to stop falling or for the sun to come out. Simply hop on your bike, hassle-free, all in the comfort of your own home.
LINKS TO COOL CYCLING TECHNOLOGY
Finally, you can also connect this trainer with the best training software out there including Zwift, Bkool, FulGaz, The Sufferfest, Kinomap, TrainerRoad and RGT (Road Grand Tours); making you feel like you’re actually riding the road with immersive training visuals and resistance features that replicates the real outdoors.
So, for the days that you can’t be bothered to leave your own home, get your bike on the Smart Turbo Trainer and cycle away without getting out of your pyjamas.
