You already know the numerous beneficial effects of aerobic exercise for your physical and mental health, and why aerobic exercise has always been and will always be a part of a balanced exercise regimen aimed to keep the body healthy and fit. However, traditionally aerobic exercise has customarily been performed indoors under the supervision of a live instructor or following the direction of a taped aerobics instructor while using various expensive exercise devices.
In a break from tradition, the introduction of the innovative Trikke cambering vehicle has now changed all that. Dubbed by many as the “health club on wheels,” this innovative Trikke scooter-like device with its patented 3CV cambering suspension technology offers an alternative way of performing aerobic exercise while traveling and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors.
Aerobic exercises are aptly named (aero means air or oxygen) because they involve continuous or rhythmic low-intensity activities performed for extended periods of time to improve the body’s oxygen consumption. They are mainly aimed to build skeletal muscle endurance rather than strength, strengthen heart and respiratory muscles, and improve circulation and mental health. The repetitive arm thrust – alternative pushing and pulling on the handlebars, upper body twisting, coordinated shifting of body weight, and balancing performed in order to propel and accelerate the Trikke meet the requirements of an aerobic exercise; i.e., less vigorous activities performed in a continuous and rhythmic manner.
Working out on your Trikke will primarily condition and tone the core muscles, especially the obliques, as well as the thigh and leg muscles. Core muscles are the trunk and hip muscles that stabilize the spine, pelvis, and shoulder. Well-conditioned core muscles help you maintain good posture, reduce strain on your spine and protect the back. But perhaps the best reasons for improving your core strength is to improve body control and balance, and increase efficiency of movement. Since many of your muscles are being exercised while Trikke-ing, more glucose will be needed to provide the muscles with energy. Once dietary glucose is consumed, the body will start burning fat as its energy source, thereby resulting in weight loss. Riding your Trikke scooter offers all these benefits and more. The bonus is you don’t have to suffer the boredom of the gym or the monotony of repetitively watching your video instructor perform the same routines over and over again, anymore!
Boredom is a word that can never be synonymous with your Trikke scooter. In fact, first time riders of the Trikke, when interviewed, can’t stop gushing over how exciting and fun riding the Trikke is. Some even find it addicting, saying they can go for miles at very fast speed and burn calories without feeling too exhausted.
Trikke-ing also allows you to enjoy the fresh air and attain an overwhelming feeling of freedom. Being an outdoor sport, you can never run out of challenges with the Trikke. Upon mastering the coordination, one can proceed to practicing speed and then on to uphill climbing, which many people find difficult initially.
Even after you’ve become a master climber, trying to compete with other Trikkers or learning new tricks with your Trikke scooter will provide more than enough challenges. New Trikke designs, particularly the Trikke 8 convertible and the Trikke 12 roadster, even allow you to take the Trikke off-road and experience even more challenging terrain. Furthermore, the more you ride your Trikke, the higher your stamina will become, and your metabolism will improve. This translates into more fat burned during your Trikke workout, faster weight loss and a more fit body.
And we all gotta love that!
