A Health Time-Bomb

Britain is the fattest nation in Europe with 1 in 4 people in England already obese and these figures are set to rise dramatically in the coming years. Doctors are urgently advising us to do more regular exercise and to keep physically active in order to reduce the risk of us storing up serious health problems in later life, however, circumstances conspire to make fitting exercise into our daily lives very difficult.
People of all ages who are physically active are less likely to get cardiovascular disease than those who are inactive – British Heart Foundation
Our increasingly busy lives, our sedentary lifestyles and even the bad British weather prevent many of us taking the medically-recommended amount of exercise – 30 minutes of temperature-raising, heart-rate increasing activity, at least 5 times a week. Also as more of us live into old age, medical experts say that we need to keep active to ensure that we stay healthier for longer, both physically and mentally.

Being over-weight and lack of sufficient physical activity are major causes of:
  • Angina
  • Heart-disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Dementia in old age
Medical experts recommend that we each do 30 minutes of temperature-raising, heart-rate increasing activity, at least 5 times a week

Mini Exercise Bikes – A Solution

Mini exercise bikes are a wonderfully simple and convenient solution to this problem. Just like a large stationary exercise bike that you would find at a gym, they provide a light cardiovascular work-out and help you maintain your muscle strength. They can help you to:
  • Keep fit
  • Lose weight
  • Reduce your cholesterol
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Tone your muscles
  • Maintain your joint flexibility
  • Recuperate after surgery

Your health is your most valuable asset so watch this video from the British Heart Foundation to help you understand what causes a heart attack…it could save your life!

Are you over 40? Then get a Health Check.
If you are over 40, the British Heart Foundation strongly recommends that you get a health MOT.

Also called a heart health or cardiovascular risk assessment, a health check is an assessment carried out by your GP or practice nurse to find out your risk of coronary heart disease, and is available for free to anyone over 40.

Based on your results, they will advise you on what you can do to keep your heart healthy. This may involve lifestyle changes such as improving your diet, giving up smoking and becoming more physically active. They will also consider whether you need to start taking medicines to lower your cholesterol and your blood pressure to protect your heart.

Convenient and Time-Saving

Keeping fit could not be any easier. Mini Exercise bikes are:
  • Small: They take up very little space and can easily be stored away out of sight
  • Lightweight: They are easy to move around, even by someone elderly.
  • Convenient: They enable you to exercise whenever you want in the comfort, privacy and safety of your own home.
  • Affordable: They provide the same benefits of large stationary exercise bikes at a fraction of the cost and will save you hundreds of pounds on gym fees.
  • Time-Saving: They enable you to exercise while doing other things e.g. watching TV, listening to the radio, reading or surfing the internet.
  • Flexible: They can be used at home or work (i.e. under your desk)
  • Versatile: They can be used to exercise both your upper and lower body.
  • Effective: They enable you to maintain a consistent exercise regime, regardless of the weather outside.

In this way they are able to help everyone in Britain become just a little bit healthier.
