Exercise doesn’t have to be a grind
I used to approach exercise with the belief that I had to be absolutely miserable and beat my body up in order to get a “good” workout. Who hasn’t heard the phrase “No pain, no gain”? Over time all this managed to do was discourage me from training at all. I also inherited severe arthritis from my dad and that made staying fit even more difficult.
So as a last resort I joined the gym and naturally gravitated to the stationary bikes because using them wasn’t painful. I soon found that I could get a good cardio workout with virtually no discomfort to my knees and hips. Thus I discovered that cycling was perfect for me.
I soon graduated from strictly indoor cycling to both indoor/outdoor. And I found that I LOVE being outdoors. Some days I got home after an hour ride with my shirt plastered to my back and my hair dripping wet from exertion, and I felt great! I loved the feeling of being outdoors with the wind blowing through my hair all the while improving my health. And what made it even better? It was all low-impact!
So, in the quest to stay fit and discover all I can about low-impact exercise, I have compiled some helpful information and some great products I’ve found to share on this site. I hope you find something in it for you.
