“Cycle Studio is quite literally a dream come true. Knowing that I have access to such a quality indoor training option while in Sydney is real peace of mind – not only can I ride safely indoors and as part of an energetic group to keep motivation high, but it means I don’t have to travel with a bike to get some quality training in. Especially now with a young baby, short hard intense training suits my time constraints but is also the most effective no matter what distance I am training for. The staff are knowledgable, fun and enthusiastic and the facilities and equipment are top class. Riding with power is essential for me to be able to track progress and know that I am hitting training goals. Put simply the numbers never lie! I wish I had Cycle Stdio as my permanent home base, but will now happily plan my trips to Sydney knowing that my training is never compromised. Hope to see you there too!”...

Staying healthy over 50

Simple tips can help avoid health problems A healthy lifestyle is necessary at any age, but for those over 50, it’s especially important. As you age, your body changes, and your risk for health problems increases. Fortunately, there are three simple things you can do to lead a healthier and happier life. Eat heart-healthy A great way to establish a heart healthy diet is by reducing your sodium intake, which may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Eat nutrient-dense foods As you age, your body needs fewer calories for energy-but still needs the same amount of nutrients. Make your calories count by eating foods packed with good nutrition such as: fruits and vegetables fresh, canned or frozen. Protein Add some variety to your diet with delicious protein sources such as fish, beans and peas. Get moving Physical activity and regular exercise can decrease the risk of heart disease, stroke, colon cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure. You should consult your physician or other health care professional before making changes to your diet or exercise plan to determine what is right for your needs.

Tip 5 – Be Realistic

Tip 5 – Be Realistic

One of the biggest problems with New Year’s resolutions is they can be extremely impractical. Setting goals is a great idea, but make sure they are realistic and feasible. For example, a goal to lose 12 lbs by Easter is both reasonable and achievable. So is a goal to complete a 15K ride by the end of the month. Conversely, a goal to complete a triathlon by that date is unrealistic and potentially unsafe for newbie cyclists. Think of it as if you were building a house. Start slow (i.e., low intensity and duration), develop a solid foundation of fitness and then build upon that foundation as your fitness improves. Good luck with all your New Year Health & Fitness resolutions from all the team at Cycle Studio Ps if you need any help we are always here…   image courtesy of © Rolffimages | Dreamstime Stock...
Tip 4 – Take it easy

Tip 4 – Take it easy

Think of your resolution as a lifelong commitment to a healthier lifestyle. You are much more likely to be successful if you take it easy at the beginning. For instance, you may see people exercising at a very high intensity, but you should start with low-to-moderate intensity workouts. You may know people who train six days a week, but it’s fine to start with three. You may see people engage in a diverse array of physical activities, but a 15-minute walk three days a week is a great place to begin.  Go at your pace and build up and remember the hare and tortoise… image courtesy of © Liz Van Steenburgh | Dreamstime Stock...
