Seven Reasons Crosscycle is King
CROSSCYCLE IS AN ALL-IN-ONE WORKOUT.
Don’t know what to do? Don’t worry. Crosscycle is beautifully designed so that you can get a fierce cardio workout along with HIIT strength repetitions. It’s the perfect combination to ensure that you are getting a complete workout.
CROSSCYCLE CAN MAKE YOUR MIND & BODY FEEL BETTER.
Strength training can help with the body and mind (see our last blog) by building muscles used in everyday activities and stimulating the endorphins in the mind. HIIT challenges your heart to pump more efficiently, which can lower your heart rate, reduce blood pressure, and improve your endurance over time.
CROSSCYCLE GIVES YOUR METABOLISM A JOLT.
Crosscycle workouts are HIIT (high-intensity interval training) style, the exercises create a huge metabolic reaction and spark your metabolism to get going. After a HIIT workout, your metabolism gradually burns down and simmers for a long time.
CROSSCYCLE IS GOOD FOR YOUR JOINTS & BONES.
Strength training has been shown to reduce the risk of osteoporosis by maintaining bone density and lowering the likelihood of fractures, which is important as we age. Cycling is a low-impact sport, so these workouts will take it easy on your bones and joints while still challenging your muscles and endurance.
CROSSCYCLE WORKS YOUR ENTIRE UPPER BODY.
When you finish a class and your body is sore, you know it’s been a good workout. Crosscycle gets your arms, shoulders, back, core, and heart involved, so you move away with a complete and total workout. HIIT workouts like Crosscycle involve quick bursts of vigorous exercises followed by periods of lighter activity or rest to let your body recover. That might mean 30 seconds of all-out pedaling followed by 30 seconds of light cycling.
CROSSCYCLE CHALLENGES YOUR BODY.
New members have talked about how the mix between cycling and strength creates a dynamic that allows them to learn new exercises and forces the body to react in a new way. When it comes to deciding what to switch up, Kakana instructors say you need to challenge your body. It’s important to keep your body guessing. Challenge your body to move in different planes, it will help overall functional strength & mobility. Push outside that comfort zone & try something new. That is when you grow.
