Back pain, pains in the hips, ankles, or knees, cellulite… All of those can sometimes ruin your life! To do yourself good and calm your pains, suitable physical activity is recommended in a lot of cases. With no impact, exercise bikes are the perfect option for helping you gently fight your pains. Check out all the good things they can provide.

BACK PAIN

[1/] REDUCE BACK PAIN

Back pain, the ailment of our era! More and more sedentary, many of us spend our days seated at a desk facing a computer. Frequently sitting poorly on an unsuitable chair has its consequences. The first victim? Our backs. Unlike what you might think in the case of pain, it's important to stay active. So to ease your pain, get off the couch!

A sport that does you well: The exercise bike. With no impact, brutal tensions, or asymmetrical positioning, it allows you to move gently. Unlike classic bikes, where you cover kilometres on sometimes uneven roads, on exercise bikes, you don't get jostled. A real plus when your back is making you suffer. 

With the right saddle adjustment and seated as upright as possible, exercise bikes are an excellent way to relieve back pain. As for your pace? Increase gradually and at your own pace - it's important that your workout is and remains fun :)

The only step before beginning: consult your doctor and get their approval. You can never be too careful when it comes to your health!

[2/] EASE PAINS: HIP, KNEE, ANKLE

As we age, our joints become more fragile, so it is essential to take care of them. But whether in the hips, knees, or ankles, when you have pain, it can quickly become a handicap. If you still want to stay active, make careful choices. Certain sports are not recommended, and could even worsen the situation. So in that case, what should you do?

Considered to be a supported sport where your body weight rests in the saddle, exercise bikes reduce the risk of injury. Movements are fluid and no impact, and when you're calmly seated at home, you can ride without any risk of falls. 

Gentle on the joints, it still allows you to work on your endurance and break a sweat. It is also particularly recommended if you are overweight.

Finally, exercise bikes help you improve your range of motion. Basically, nothing but positives!

[3/] BEAT CELLULITE

Hormones, excess sugar and fat, poor circulation, sedentary habits, genetics... there are many causes of cellulite, but are there any solutions? Rest assured, the answer is yes - it is possible to reduce it. And exercise bikes are a part of it. Of course, remember that in parallel, you need to stay hydrated and maintain a healthy and varied diet.

Thighs, glutes, and calves are the main areas you work with an exercise bike. Pedalling improves the circulation of oxygen and lymphatic fluid through your body, which reduces cellulite over the long term.

With regular workouts, your legs get toned and your skin tightens up. Forget riding for 45 minutes at low intensity, the best way to reduce cellulite: HIIT workouts (high intensity interval training). Shorter but more intense, they help you firm up.

For the best results, the ideal is to keep up a pace of 3 sessions a week.

You can never repeat it enough: sport is good for your health! Riding the exercise bike will also be beneficial in case of:
