Hiit Cycling Workouts could make you 20 years younger!

Imagine shredding 20 years off your biological age? Research reveals the secret formula to help you make it happen.

As we age, we start to see a gradual decline in strength, power and aerobic capacity. What’s surprising to many is that this decline kicks in rather early on. By 40, you start losing about 90g of muscle each year, which means by the time you hit your 70s you’ll likely have a third less muscle than a 25-year-old. From the age of 50, you can expect a 16 percent decrease in aerobic capacity, falling by 26 percent by the time you’re in your 70s.

But … If you exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet, and limit stress, then there’s every chance you can slow the effects of aging.

Previous research has shown cycling can help maintain muscle mass, stabilize cholesterol and reduce disease risk as we age. Now, there’s evidence that cycling cannot just slow aging, but actually reverse it. A comprehensive study of both athletes and sedentary men revealed that a man in his late 60s can cut his biological age by 20 years – simply by following a specific cycle workout.

At Moove Motion Fitness Club we have a variety of Group Cycle classes to keep you young and fit.  Workouts such as LES MILLS SPRINT, using intense bursts of powerful pedalling followed by periods of recovery – with the work durations often lasting between 20 and 40 seconds.

It significantly improves cardiovascular, metabolic and musculoskeletal fitness. In six weeks, a group of fit adults reduced body fat mass and blood pressure, while enhancing their cardiovascular fitness, lean body mass, glucose tolerance and strength – simply by replacing one 60-minute cardiovascular training session with two 30-minute LES MILLS SPRINT workouts.

Head over to the Moove Motion Fitness Group Fitness Schedule to check out when the next cycle class is.
