Is HIIT The Road a Good Workout? 

Because it’s low impact but not low intensity, cycling offers so many great results for your body on the bike: 

  • HIIT Training Benefits. High-Intensity Interval Training delivers some of the quickest fitness results of all training styles and is a foundational element of all formats of the Crunch Ride program. The built-in recovery allows athletes to attack repeated work segments with the same or higher intensity each time. This leads to increased fat burning and lowers insulin resistance.  
  • Cardiovascular Benefits. Because the heart rate remains elevated even during the recovery aspects of HIIT training, participants’ hearts get a workout! This leads to a lower resting heart rate and higherVO2max, better lung capacity. 
  • Strength Benefits. Legs get a great workout during The Ride, obviously, but so does the core, from stabilizing the body while standing to keeping good overall riding posture. This core strength improves overall balance and coordination as well.  
  • Joint Benefits. Cycling is one of the best low-impact exercise options for fitness fanatics trying to stay healthy while being kind to their hips, knees, and ankles.  
  • Safety Benefits. Indoor cycling can provide all the training benefits of outdoor cycling without risk of crash injuries
