So I’m going to be honest in that I’ve not been to the gym in like…forever. It’s definitely taken it’s toll on me aswell both in energy and in overall fitness. I’m wanting to get the next week out of the way before I hit the gym hard to get my summer bod.
When Fenetic Wellbeing got in touch, it reminded me of spinning and how much I miss it. It’s also the best exercise for me because I do suffer from joint pain in the knees. Sorry Mum, I should have listen when you told me to stop kneeling when I was watching TV. #paybacktime
Fenetic Wellbeing are a mobility company who provide customers with the right healthcare and mobility products for their individual needs. This is a company covers those who find enjoyment from riding a bike but may find it difficult to because of joint pain, including arthritis.
It’s not only the older generation that can benefit from this but also those in my age group too. I’ve found that ever since I hit 22, my body (especially my knees) have started moaning. They’ll kick up a fuss if I sit in a space with restricted leg room so much in that it makes me feel really uncomfortable if I’m forced to sit in it for too long.
I think our bodies take on a lot of pressure and even more so now. There’s much more focus on getting fit and exercising, working harder in general day to day life and resting less. I think many of my friends will find themselves saying the same things and unfortunately that is a problem.
Fenetic Wellbeing have recently launched an electric bike range called the E-bikes. E-bikes are perfect for those who love the outdoor lifestyle but feel set back by physical restrictions.
The PAS (Pedal Assist System) of an electric bike means, you only need to apply a small amount of pressure to the pedal to start moving. So the perfect solution to causing less strain and pressure on vulnerable joints.
Their range of of E-bikes include the standard, sport and mountain. All are quite pricey but to be honest, having seen the prices of bikes nowadays – they ain’t cheap! Plus with the PAS integrated into these bikes, they seem like a product that would stand the test of time with many years of enjoyment out in the beautiful country we live in!
I used to do a lot of cycling when I was younger and I loved exploring the woods we had close by to wear we lived. Rides to the sweet shop and to meet friends at the park was also accompanied by cycling and it’s a shame I don’t do as much as I did now. Spinning is obviously stationary so I’m scared that when I do eventually end up cycling again – I’ll end up falling off due to the clumsy genes I’ve inherited.
The benefits of using an E-bike will allow a lot of us with joint pain to enjoy cycling outdoors and I think if this is something that will help you, then I’d definitely consider it.
What do you think of E-bikes? Let me know in the comments below.
