New Cycling Trend
You're looking at the latest trend when it comes to indoor cycling.
Kyle Miller says "It is like a dance club, and you get to exercise in the music, escape in the lights, escape in an entire experience instead of just a workout."
Kyle Miller takes the new cycling class at Thrive Studio on the North Shore.
Kim Gavin says "I think that we hear and know what we need to do, but it's hard to get motivated."
Kim is hoping this new high energy environment with lights and sounds will not only get people motivated, but moving, moving from side to side on the Real Ryder bikes that are supposed to burn more calories and offer the closest thing to being on a real bike.
But in addition to fitness, Kim says it's important to also focus on the nutritional component of your life, but you can't have one without the other and be healthy."
Kim Gavin says "People understand you need to exercise, so you exercise, but what you put into your body is equally important and how much of it."
From super sized meals to extra large portions, it all adds up to a growing health crisis.. more obese people.
That's why Kim says it's important to teach people how to make healthy food choices when it comes to snacks and meals.
Kim Gavin says "Changing those habits is very difficult to do."
But it can be done.
Kim Gavin says "I say start small, take one small step and for some people that might be walking to the mailbox or walking around the block."
But the most important thing is to do something. No matter how small, it's all about building health bodies and minds.
