Hot Indoor Trainers for Cold Outdoor Temps

Why an Indoor Trainer?

As the temperatures outside get colder, and snow and rain start to hit, a lot of people put away their bikes deep in the garage until the spring. This doesn't need to be the case! You can keep riding all year long. Indoor trainers turn your everyday bicycle into a stationary bike. You can ride in the comfort of your own home.  Plug in some headphones and pedal away through your workout playlist. Set up in front of a TV and make yourself commit to 10 miles for every episode of your favorite drama series. That weekend Netflix binge just got a lot more productive! There a many awesome apps you can integrate into your indoor cycling to get the most out of your trainer experience. Apps like TrainerRoad, ZWIFT and Rouvey allow you to track mileage, power output, virtually ride anywhere in the world with 4K road footage, and the opportunity to virtually ride with your friends!

Trainers are for everyone.

You don't have to be a cyclist to start riding a trailer. Trainers will work with almost any bicycle. Road bikes, mountain bikes and comfort bikes are all compatible with a indoor trainer. Change up your workout. Cycling is a great way to burn fat, work on endurance and get a great cardio workout.
