One of the advantages of cycling is that it offers a balanced approach to fitness. It's a low-impact exercise that can help you strengthen your heart, lower your blood pressure, boost your energy, burn calories, tone your body (especially thighs, buttocks and stomach), reduce stress and tension and help you reach peak performance. Cycling is an excellent exercise because it exercises large muscle groups in a sustained fashion, which maintains your heart rate at a level high enough to achieve training effects. If your aim is to increase your weekly exercise dose only modestly, then biking to work or the like is a great way to start getting into shape.
