Propel to Fitness with Cycling at Gold’s Gym in Chapel Hill
Cycling is a great form of exercise for both aerobics and strengthening. It’s easy on the joints and you can pedal at your own pace. The best part about cycling is the indoor studio at Gold’s Gym in Douglasville – Chapel Hill. The fierce Georgia summers won’t matter – and neither will the humidity, wind or rain. Regardless of your age, fitness level or experience, indoor cycling (also known as spinning) has many health benefits, including physical and emotional wellbeing. Even if you already have an established workout routine, think about adding cycling to your exercise activities.
- Cycling is easy on the joints. Pedaling does not require jarring, impactful movements, and it helps loosen stiff muscles and joints. That’s one reason cycling is a great activity for older adults; it increases mobility for stiff hips and knees, and it keeps muscles flexible and limber.
- Spinning loves your heart. Not only does indoor cycling increase your heart rate and boost your metabolism, but it also improves energy and endurance. So to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels – and burn unwanted calories at the same time – hop on board one of our stationary bikes for a spin. It’s a great weight loss solution, and in just 30 minutes a day you can also reduce your risk of heart disease.
- Cycling strengthens your core and tones your muscles. If needed, consult a personal trainer at our Douglasville health club for the proper form and the most effective intensity and duration of your cycling workout.
Yes, cycling is a great physical workout, but there’s more. Spinning is a workout that just makes you feel better, too. Almost every exercise, when done properly, delivers a sense of well-being. Cycling is no different. It’s a great stress reliever and mood booster, guaranteed. As you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins that give you an energized, positive outlook. It’s your body’s natural response to exercise.
In addition to individual workouts, our health club offers group training classes including Group Ride and R30 Cycling – a 30 minute workout that offers surges, short intervals and a powerful conclusion – all led by a certified instructor and set to motivating music.
For the ultimate physical fitness program, try alternating your cycling workout with free weights or circuit training.
