Our Seniors Cycle class is designed for anyone who embraces the retiree lifestyle. Not only can seniors enjoy these classes, they can benefit greatly from the heart rate training and low impact activity that indoor cycling provides. This class will promote the strong personal sense of purpose and camaraderie one gets by belonging to the indoor cycling community. Members will feel that they are part of a team, everyone helping each other to achieve their goals.
As we move into our later years, it’s normal to lose muscle mass. Our muscles’ ability to contract reduces due to fat and connective tissue. When seniors stop being active, the rate of muscle loss speeds up and they age faster.
Cycling can increase your lifespan by reducing the risk of chronic disease. In a UK study of 260,000 adults, those that cycled cut their risk of death from all causes by 40% and cut their risk of cancer and heart disease by 45%. Cycling is also a form of vigorous activity that protects telomere length. Shortened telomere cause ageing and cell death.
Join us for a fun and healthy 45 minutes - enjoy the music, community and best of all keep moving!
Like any new physical activity, it’s best to ease into it. Start slow and don’t ask too much from your body, especially if you haven’t been exercising regularly.
If you are thinking of taking up cycling and you haven’t exercised in a while, consult your GP or an exercise physiologist for advice first.
