Be more physically active.
Many of you may not know my Finding Fit journey started on a bike.
Biking is a great way to incorporate more physical activity into your life. You can bike to get around town. Commute to work. Visit the grocery store. Biking is also a great way to get the whole family moving together.
Cycling is even a quick in to the ever expanding hipster culture sweeping across America. Skinny jeans and single speed bikes. I got the first this summer...halfway there.
Benefits of biking for exercise include:
- Burning approximately 300 calories/ hour
- Improving cardiovascular stamina
- Increasing muscle and strength in your legs
- Being a low impact form of exercise
