Since the pandemic, people say that they have got out of the habit of exercising regularly and don’t know how to find the time or the motivation to get back into it. Research shows that we’re sitting for an average of four hours a day more than we did pre-Covid, and the damage to our health is dramatic.
Lack of physical activity is one of the biggest killers and more avoidable than diabetes, obesity, and smoking combined. Since the pandemic began we’ve been moving less and need to get back into fitness. Sitting has been described in Harvard Business Review as the new smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle is said to be as bad for you as smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes a day.
There are some exciting ways to get back into exercise that combine state-of-the-art science and exercise technology with simple mindset changes that will get you out of your rut, help you improve your health, and save you time while gently pushing you out of your comfort zone.
CAROL is a scientifically-proven, cutting-edge, AI-powered bike that gives you the shortest possible personalised cardio workout using REHIT (an advanced form of HIIT). A CAROL workout takes just 8 minutes and 40 seconds a session, with two short, hard sprints of 20 seconds. An AI-powered ride on CAROL will optimize your fitness to give you the same benefits as a 45-minute jog, giving you double the health and fitness benefits in 20% of the time compared to traditional exercise.
Working out on CAROL will improve your heart health, overall fitness, help you lose weight, help lower blood pressure and blood sugar so you can reach your optimal fitness to stay physically and mentally stronger than ever.
A CAROL bike overcomes the issue of not having time to spend hours in the gym or pound the streets but changing our routine and mindset can be challenging.
This can be solved with easy to apply hacks that utilise the Kaizen philosophy of making small, incremental changes to help shift our perspective. This shift can set us on the road to success and back into healthy habits without piling on the pressure to reach unrealistic fitness goals that are usually doomed to fail.
Good ways to stick to your new habits are setting a calendar reminder for a short CAROL session three times a week, planning how you’ll reward yourself, and using the extra free time saved by not having to spend hours working out. If you focus on changing your habit rather than the outcome and commit to three sessions a week on CAROL, the results will take care of themselves.
Because each CAROL ride is personalized, it’s suitable for all ages, and you only need to spend 26 minutes a week on CAROL in total. You’ll soon notice a difference in fitness levels, which will encourage you to stick to new healthy habits, and it will become easy to fit a short CAROL session into your day as you start to feel the benefits.
Once CAROL’s AI algorithms have got to know you, the bike’s AI will calculate and change the resistance level of your personalized workouts to deliver maximum results, pushing you further than you could ever push yourself.
‘In only eight weeks, three rides a week will transform your health and fitness, reverse bad habits and undo the damage done by lack of movement. You will achieve a level of fitness that previously seemed impossible, you’ll be back in an exercise routine that couldn’t be more convenient, and you’ll have more free time to spend doing things you love with the people you love,’ says Ulrich Dempfle, CEO of CAROL.
