Folding Electric Bikes for fitness

Possibly not the first thing to come to mind when you think of an ebike.
After all, it's got an electric motor, so surely that does all the hard work?
Not quite.

Taking your ebike for a ride can do wonders for your physical and mental health.
Not convinced?

Here are 5 reasons why riding an electric bike could be the tool you need to take your health and fitness to the next level.

1 Little and often

Ebikes are perfect for those short, regular journeys.

Taking exercise little and often really adds up. You’d be surprised just how much difference it will make to your health and fitness in the long term. However, making room for those exercise sessions can be difficult to fit in when you have a busy schedule. The easiest way to do this is to make it a part of your daily routine, and that’s where your electric bike comes in.

Think of your commute. If you work five days per week in the office, that’s 10 opportunities for you to ride your ebike. Keep it up, and you’ll reap the benefits sooner than you think!

2 Muscle power

The electric motor on an Axon Ride is powerful, but it doesn’t do all the work.

You still have to pedal, and when you do, you'll meet resistance, especially if you have to tackle an incline. However, the electric motor does some of the heavy lifting. So if the idea of being soaked in sweat when you're done riding doesn't appeal an ebike is the perfect choice.

Yet, even with the motor humming away, your heart rate will climb, and your legs will get a workout giving you a health kick without puffing, panting, dirt, and grime. Better still, with adjustable assistance, you can tweak the power up and down, or turn it off all together and go full leg-power. What’s not to like?

3 Relax and enjoy

The world demands more of us than ever before, and there’s little doubt that stress is on the rise.

Getting out into the fresh air for a gentle journey on your Axon Ride is a great way to lower your mental temperature. Thanks to the electric motor, you don’t need to get yourself psyched up for a physical challenge. Nor do you need to worry about lugging an awkwardly shaped frame out to the road because of the Axon Ride’s foldable, portable design.

Simply pick up your bike, head outside, unfold and 10 seconds later you can leave the stresses of the day behind you.

4 Lift and carry

Give your arms a (light) workout as you take your Axon Ride with you wherever you go.

There’s more to a journey on an electric bike than the ride itself. The chances are you’ll take advantage of the foldable and portable design of your Axon ride to take your ebike into your home or office for security. You might even take it on or off public transport if you’re heading further afield.
Sure, these little exertions might not feel like much, but every little bit adds up!

5 Consistency is king

We all have those off days.

You know the ones. You’re tired, stressed, and don’t really feel like exercising. They’re the days where you’d take the car or bus over a slog on your regular bicycle. It’s on these days that an Axon Rides electric bike shines. The electric motor gives you the boost you need to get the job done, meaning you can get that vital exercise in, even if you're having a less than stellar day.

Enjoy smooth and steady progress towards your fitness goals with your Axon Rides electric bike.

Important note: please don’t ride if you’re ill or injured!
