TYPES OF STATIONARY BIKES AT FITNESS SOLUTIONS SASKATOON

Stationary Bikes at Fitness Solutions

Stationary bikes make excellent additions to your home gym. Riding one provides an effective total body workout burning calories and body fat while also strengthening your heart, lungs, and muscles. At Fitness Solutions Saskatoon, we have a wide variety of stationary bikes available either in stock or to order for you.

Upright Bike

The upright bike is similar to a regular bicycle, with the pedals positioned under your body. It provides a great cardio workout while also strengthening your leg and core muscles. Depending on your preference, this bike can be used both standing or sitting.

One of many upright bikes we have at Fitness Solutions is the Sole Fitness B54 Upright Cycle. The SOLE B54 upright cycle's low-impact motion is one of the main benefits of exercising with an indoor cycle. Decreasing stress on knees, hips, and ankles throughout your workout while providing positive cardiovascular effects, it is suitable for anything from maintenance to high-performance exercise. The B54 is easy to use at any exercise level and takes up a relatively small amount of space, making it an ideal fitness partner for your home workout.

Recumbent Bike

Recumbent stationary bikes allow you to sit in a comfortable reclined position on a larger seat that’s positioned back from the pedals. This type of bike puts less stress on your upper body, joints, and low back. Your body is fully supported, which can make your workout less intense. You’ll also have less fatigue and muscle soreness after your workout.

Fitness Solutions has different options of recumbent bikes including the S3Ri Recumbent Bike. Featuring the Concept Health and Fitness integration which allows for countless entertainment and motivational options, the S3Ri is a full-size, walk-through recumbent featuring the latest in creature comforts for enjoyable workouts.  



Indoor Cycle Bike

The indoor cycle bike, which is the most popular option in indoor cycling classes, is similar to an upright bike. However, it has an elevated seat.

Another difference is that resistance is created with a weighted flywheel on the front, which is typically about 40 pounds. The resistance can be adjusted to simulate hills or riding into the wind.

An option for an indoor spin bike at Fitness Solutions is the Horizon Fitness IC7.9 Indoor Cycle Spin Bike. Designed to keep pace with the most popular live and on-demand streaming fitness classes, the IC7.9 indoor cycle puts your tablet and content at the centre of your experience. Pedal along with Peloton, Studio SWEAT onDemand or other popular streaming fitness apps.* Bring your favourite media or just ride — no membership fees or subscriptions are required to get the most from this high-performance bike.

Air Bike

A less common type of stationary bike is a fan or air bike. This bike doesn’t have any preprogrammed options as you create resistance by pedalling. The faster you pedal, the faster the wheel blades rotate and the more resistance you generate. 

Fitness Solutions has air bikes including the Bells of Steel Blitz Air Bike 2.0. The Blitz Air Bike is the definitive choice for your home gym. Belt-driven with an oversized fan and comes standard with wind guard, bottle and phone holder and a super comfy seat! This fan bike is well suited to even the most die-hard garage gym athletes.

Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment Store, Fitness Solutions Share 5 Things to Know About Infrared Saunas

Fitness Solutions is a locally owned, Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment storeserving residential and commercial customers for over 30 years. They have the tools and the experience to make your fitness goals a reality. They are there every step of the way to guide and educate you through the process of finding the perfect piece of equipment to make it happen. In our latest Trusted Saskatoon fitness article, they provide information on home saunas that are available at Fitness Solutions Saskatoon.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT INFRARED SAUNAS FROM FITNESS SOLUTIONS SASKATOON

Infrared Saunas from Fitness Solutions Saskatoon

Home saunas are known to provide plenty of health benefits including relieving sore muscles, reducing stress, and helping maintain healthy skin to name a few. Saunas also add value to your home and require very little upkeep. Here are 5 things to know about infrared saunas from Fitness Solutions Saskatoon.

1. What is an Infrared Sauna?

Infrared saunas use infrared heaters to emit infrared light experienced by the body as radiant heat. This heat is absorbed by the surface of the skin without warming the air around you.


2. How Does an Infrared Sauna Work?

Saunas heat the body primarily by conduction and convection from the heated air and by radiation of the heated surfaces in the sauna room. This infrared heat penetrates more deeply into the skin than just warmed air. This allows you to experience a more intense and tolerable sweat at a lower temperature. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body without being absorbed through the skin.

3. What Kind of Infrared Home Saunas Does Fitness Solutions Carry?

Fitness Solutions carries Seaview Cedar Infrared Home Saunas which are available from 1 person up to 4 person:

If you are interested in any of the infrared saunas available at Fitness Solutions, please give us a call at 306-933-3310 or email us at info@fitnesssaskatoon.com.

4. What Should You Know Before You Try an Infrared Sauna?    

There are a few things you should know before indulging in your first session:

  • Avoid using an infrared sauna if you’ve been drinking alcohol.
  • If you feel ill or have a fever, it’s best to wait to use the sauna until you’re feeling better.
  • Using an infrared sauna will cause you to sweat a lot, so you may feel lightheaded when you stand up. If this happens, make sure you get up slowly and sit down once you leave the sauna. Drink water immediately after finishing your session and wait for your body to cool down before doing anything else.
  • In extreme cases, some people may experience overheating (heat stroke and heat exhaustion) or dehydration.

***If you have any health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems, or are under medical care, get cleared by your doctor before your first session.***

5. How to use an Infrared Sauna

  • Drink water: Make sure you’re hydrated before going into an infrared sauna. Drink a glass of water before your session. You can also bring water into the sauna, especially if you’re sensitive to higher heat.
  • Choose the temperature: The average temperature for an infrared sauna ranges from 100˚F to 150˚F, with beginners starting out at the lower end and more experienced users at the higher end. If this is your first time, start with 100˚F. You may want to stay at this temperature for a few sessions. You can always increase the temperature each session until you reach 150˚F.
  • Length of time: For first-time users, start with 10 to 15 minutes. You can add time to each session until you reach the suggested time of 20 to 30 minutes. Saunas come with a timer, so make sure to set it. You don’t want to stay in there too long and risk becoming dehydrated.
  • What to wear: How you dress is your choice. Some people will wear bathing suits, while others prefer to go in naked.
  • What you can do while in the sauna: Relax, read, meditate, listen to music, or visit with friends. Just don’t go to sleep.
  • After the session is over: When your session is done, it’s suggested that you take your time and let your body cool down. Once cooled down, feel free to take a shower or bath. Just make sure you are drinking plenty of water.
  • Number of sessions per week: Most facilities that offer infrared sauna treatments recommend using the sauna three to four days per week. If you are healthy and tolerate the four days, you can use the sauna daily.

Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment Store, Fitness Solutions Share 5 Fitness Trends for 2021

Fitness Solutions is a locally owned, Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment store, serving residential and commercial customers for over 30 years. They have the tools and the experience to make your fitness goals a reality. They are there every step of the way to guide and educate you through the process of finding the perfect piece of equipment to make it happen. In their latest Trusted Saskatoon fitness article, they discuss 5 fitness trends to expect in 2021. 

5 FITNESS TRENDS TO LOOK FOR IN 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic changed the way most of us are used to getting our exercise into our daily lives. Routines were altered and new measures were taken for fitness. Thankfully fitness will never go away, but there are trends that will be expected to rise for this year in 2021.

Virtual Fitness

Gyms and fitness clubs have had to experiment with alternative ways of providing their services to customers at home. Virtual workout classes have started to be offered whether that be from your local gym or from online video platforms.

Virtual fitness classes are a great way to continue doing the workout classes that you enjoy while staying safe and keeping your distance from others. Classes can be found with a low-cost subscription, while others may even be offered free of charge.

Cleaning & Sanitizing Practices

Many fitness enthusiasts have moved away from going to the gym until working out is safer to do so. Gym owners, trainers, and gym attendees will be expected more than ever to ensure cleaning and sanitizing practices remain long after the pandemic is over. Along with proper social distancing and safety norms to be followed before a person enters the fitness facility.

Body & Mind Training

According to ISPO.com, the trend toward yoga, mental training, or Pilates existed before the Covid-19 pandemic but it has intensified since.

“More and more people want to combine physical training with mental relaxation,” according to ISPO.com. “This desire is triggered not only by job-related stress but also by the strenuous homeschooling with children or financial and health fears in connection with the pandemic.”

At Fitness Solutions Saskatoon we have a variety of fitness accessories to help you with your mental training. Contact us to learn more about incorporating body and mind training into your routine.

Increased Focus on HIIT

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) was ranked the number two trend in 2020, according to ASCM’s Health and Fitness Journal, and it’s looking as if it’ll continue to remain one of the top fitness trends in 2021.

HIIT exercises tend to take significantly less time to do than a regular workout, making it attractive to people who have busier lives. You don’t need specialized equipment to do it and you can still reap the rewards. Burning more calories in a shorter period of time is another one of the many benefits of HIIT.

Outdoor Fitness

Outdoor fitness with gyms or local fitness studios will also be a trend to encourage fitness goers to enjoy classes outside where they can be safely distanced.

During the lockdown in 2020, many people incorporated a daily outdoor walk, run or jog into their fitness routines. Getting fresh air while exercising is a great way to stay active and healthy and this trend will continue as it has become a part of people’s routines.

Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment Store, Fitness Solutions Share Their Love Of SUP’s

Fitness Solutions is an established and well-loved Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment store. They have the tools and the experience to make your fitness goals a reality. Whether it's a treadmill, free weights, racks, elliptical, yoga mat, or paddle board, they are there every step of the way to guide and educate you through the process of finding the perfect piece of equipment to make it happen. In their latest Saskatoon fitness tip they share their love of SUP’s aka Stand Up Paddle Boards


WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LOVE ABOUT SUP’S IN SASKATCHEWAN




What's Up with SUP’s

Paddleboarding is a unique activity for your entire body. Not only is it lots of fun, but it’s beneficial to your own personal health & wellbeing. In our latest fitness article, we share the benefits of SUP’ing, there’s more to paddleboarding that meets the eye. We will also share the SUP options we have in store at Fitness Solutions in Saskatoon. 

1. GETS YOU UP ON YOUR FEET

One of the greatest advantages of paddleboarding is that it gets you outside, onto the water and on your feet. This alone helps maintain both your body and mind. Most people only focus on the physical aspects of this activity, but it’s incredibly beneficial to a variety of other health aspects as well. 

2. HELPS WITH BALANCE

Paddleboarding requires a lot of balance to stand up on the board. This means that you’ll be practicing both your core and leg strength to keep yourself balanced on the board. 

3. REDUCES  STRESS LEVELS

Paddleboarding can be a great stress reliever due to the sedative nature of the water around you and the ability to make the action all about you. Not to mention, falling off the board can give you a serious adrenaline rush to push off any stressful feelings. 

4. EXERCISES THE WHOLE BODY 

Stand up paddle boarding did not start as a sport. Some say it was used by Hawaiian surf instructors to move around as they attended to learners in the water. Everything about this activity is amazing and makes people want to try it. Believe it or not, it takes your entire body to use your SUP board well. This means that while you’re paddleboarding, you’ll be working your back muscles, core, arms, legs, shoulders, and torso, offering you a whole body workout. 

As you try to stabilize yourself from gravity, your body will work hard to maintain balance. At the same time, you’ll use your arms and shoulders to move the stand up paddleboard paddle forward, as your heart beats faster and releases nitric oxide. Your blood vessels will open and increased oxygen will approach your brain, improving the function of nearly every organ in your body.



5. LOW-IMPACT WORKOUT

Generally speaking, paddleboarding is a low-impact workout, meaning it can’t do serious damage to your ligaments or tendons. However, this also means it’s beneficial to anyone who experiences knee or hip pain, as well as shin splints. SUP’ing can help you increase your strength or recover from injuries, without doing any harm to your body.

6. HELPS WITH  LOSING WEIGHT

If you are looking to slim down, you should look to paddleboarding to help with your weight loss goals. Studies have shown that paddleboarding can help lower your body fat. Plus, paddleboarding is generally a fun type of exercise to actively take part in.


7.  BOOSTS CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Paddleboarding can help lower your risk of suffering from a stroke or heart attack, according to iSupWorld.com. This is because paddleboarding is similar to cross-training, running, and aerobics, all of which greatly help cardiovascular health and prevent a greater risk of relatable diseases.


8. MEDITATION WHILE YOU PADDLE


In the beginning, you may find Paddleboarding difficult to master, especially when you are just developing the ability to balance on the board itself. This also helps heighten your awareness of every move you make while on your paddleboard. Psychologist researchers determine this state of mind as “flow,” which is ideal for Zen Meditation.

However, being in this “flow” state of mind can offer you a wide range of health benefits, including improved mood, focus, and cognitive function. You can also experience better memory, and improved creative and empathetic ability. 

9. BOOSTS VITAMIN D LEVELS


This benefit is very important, especially, if you don’t get the opportunity to be out in the sun much. After our long winters in Saskatchewan, we look forward to getting some sunshine. As long as you are wearing waterproof sunscreen this is good for you since it boosts your vitamin D levels. 

We think you will agree, there’s so much more to paddleboarding than just doing the activity. Not only is it fun and great exercise, but it also helps improve the current state of your mind and body in a calm and soothing environment on the water. 

When looking for StandUp Paddle Boards, Fitness Solutions takes the time and asks you questions and goes through all the details, to find the perfect Paddle Board for you. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to climb on your board and start paddleboarding today!

At Fitness Solutions, we have the tools and the experience to make your fitness goals a reality. Whether it's a treadmill, free weights, racks, elliptical, yoga mat, or paddleboard, we are here every step of the way to guide and educate you through the process of finding the perfect piece of equipment to make it happen.
