Eating for Health

Swapping the road for the carpet!

Fri, 2 Mar 2012 08:55:56 EST

Fair weather cyclists have been spear-heading the latest fitness craze of 'stationary biking' in the privacy of their own homes.
 
High Street store Halfords has discovered a startling rise in sales of Turbo Trainers as more and more people discover the benefits of the clever device that turns an everyday bike into a fitness machine.
 
Cheaper than gym membership, far less intrusive than a cross-trainer, treadmill or conventional exercise bike; latest figures from the cycle, leisure and car parts retailer show sales of the machines more than doubled when the cold, wet, weather pushed all but the most committed cyclists indoors.
 
Asked where the preferred home for the turbo trainer was, 80 per cent said the garage, 10 per cent a spare room, 5 per cent the kitchen or dining room while 5 per cent admitted to using the main living room and exercised while watching TV.
 
Halfords cycle expert Justin Stevenson said: 'It is no secret that the number of people cycling goes up as the weather gets warmer and down as it gets chillier, but the new generation of excellent cycle trainers, with great stability and different levels of magnetic resistance to mimic harder rides, have been keeping people occupied.
 
'In these uncertain economic times people are looking to get the best use possible out of the equipment they have and turbo trainers are a great way of ensuring you can keep your fitness levels up by cycling even when you don't feel like going out in the cold and wet. An added bonus is that they take up little space when not in use.'
 
Notes to Editors:
 
The Elite Magnetic Cycle Trainer from Halfords priced at £119.99 online, features five levels of magnetic resistance and can be used on any bike to allow you to train on your bike indoors. It is ideal for performance tuning and personal fitness.
