Tons Of Health Benefits
There are many health benefits linked to indoor cycling. Not only does it get your heart rate up and lower your risk of cardiovascular problems, but it has a great impact on your mental health as well. While cycling, your brain produces endorphins elevating the release of serotonin. This can lower symptoms of moderate depression and anxiety. Over time, cycling can have an effect on your overall mood, making you feel calm and in control of your mind and body.
