The indoor bike trainer has a low impact on the body, even pros like Mike Woods recovering from cycling crash injuries use the indoor bike trainer as part of their recovery workout.

Weather all year round

Raining outside? Snowing? or High winds? You need not worry anymore. With a indoor bike trainer, you have predictable conditions to workout in. No excuses for not being able to workout.

Build your mental & physical endurance

You will be able to increase your mental endurance. Yes, I know that riding in one spot for 45 minutes more be monotonous, but it actually helps you focus on the task at hand. You are more focused on timing, breathing, control, pain and everything which comes with cycling. Compare this to outdoor cycling where you are concerned with safety, enjoying the scenery or simply chatting with a friend.

Indoors, you are more focused on your sports psychology techniques and you can actually control your breathing pattern better in order to reduce tiredness.

It takes less time

Workout in your home saves time to travel to a gym. Riding indoors allows non-stop training. More importantly, no coasting, so you need to constantly pedal allowing you to get a full value from your time. A 2 hour workout on the indoor bike trainer is worth 3.5 hours of outdoor bike training.

Great cardiovascular exercise

A recommended cardiovascular workout, you only need a moderate-intensity workout on the indoor bike trainer for 30-60 minutes five times a week.
