For most of us, a sedentary lifestyle has become part of our daily routine. Sitting down for hours on end, whether it's for work or our social life, can be a hard habit to break. To infuse activity into our day-to-day life, we need to get creative.
Benefits of Activity
Living an active lifestyle triggers a rush of positive benefits. A study conducted by Brigham and the Women's Hospital shows that consistent exercise strengthens the heart, respiratory system and lungs which aid in reducing the risk of heart disease. The heart is a muscle just like your biceps and triceps. As we train it, it gets stronger.
One of the biggest problems to date in the U.S. is diabetes. Nationwide, rates have nearly doubled in the past 20 years and they are continuing to rise. Frequent activity will help combat this disease as it increases our body’s sensitivity to insulin while supporting a healthy body weight.
Making time for movement boosts physical and mental health while fostering longevity. However, between work, grocery shopping and much-needed down time, squeezing in even 30 minutes of exercise can feel taxing. With an ebike in your garage, things change.
Life With an Ebike
With access to two wheels and a frame, your whole routine can be refreshed. Commuting becomes a chance to feel the wind against your skin and last-minute grocery runs shift into adventures. With features such as pedal assist and throttle, assistance is never out of reach. Hills become flats and any route can be adjusted to match your mood. No matter your style, putting the remote down and getting outside is easier with an ebike close by.
Spice up your lunch break with an afternoon ride or cruise comfortably into the weekend. It doesn’t matter where or when, just get moving. Studies have actually shown that ebikes offer similar health benefits to those of regular cyclists because they can keep anyone in motion. We all have different levels of energy and mobility, but with an ebike, these barriers are a thing of the past. Blix’s low step-through frame provides a sleek design while offering support to those with joint pain or physical impairments. Regardless of your level, a low-impact cardio ride will send a rush of endorphins through your veins and offer a great calorie burn.
