Burn Fat by Sprinting

Sprinting will help yosprinting2u burn fat and burn fat faster than a lower intensity workout such as jogging or going for a long run.

Biking for Fun and Fitness

Biking for Fun and Fitness

IMG_0596

I like biking because it makes me feel like a kid again. Just hopping on my bike, going from block to block with friends the neighborhood, just felt good as a child. It felt good then and it feels good now! The wind in your hair, heart pumping as I enter the slope of the hill -maybe having a destination in mind, maybe not.
It’s meditation in motion. You can problem solve while you are biking. Forgetting about the issue for the time you are out while your subconscious mind works on the solution.
Being outside in nature can also have a positive effect on your mental and emotional well-being. Pumping the heart and filling the lungs has healthful benefits for your cardiovascular system.

Calories…. Yes, you burn calories while biking too!!!!! In just 30 minutes you can burn over 250 calories!
So get outside and hop on that bike for fun and fitness!!
