The Weight of the Situation: The Trick to Getting Your Daily Exercise

With the holiday season right around the corner, we all know the concept of weight gain all too well – leftover Halloween candy turns into Thanksgiving pie which turns into holiday baked goods and some New Years champagne.

We’ve all been through those three months of food temptation.

Americans, in particular, are especially familiar with this weight conundrum – the U.S. is currently the most obese country, with over 1/3 of our population living with obesity.

The reason we’re the frontrunners of the worldwide weight issues is easy to see when our lifestyle is compared to, let’s say, a European lifestyle.

Europeans do not rely so much on the fast-food diet that so many Americans rely upon. Their food is unprocessed, immediately making it 100 times better than your average fast food meal.

More importantly, the activity level of America is lower than some of our foreign counterparts. In 2013, the U.S. reached more than 40% of our population being active – a fantastic statistic!

However, when such a large amount of our population is obese, the number of active individuals needs to be much higher to combat the weight of the country’s obesity problem.

The solution seems easy enough: more Americans need to get out and get their daily exercise. But this is not a simple answer for all Americans.

Weight, injury, illness and a variety of other reasons prevent many individuals from getting on a treadmill or bicycle, going for a run, or playing sports. With so many methods of exercise unavailable to some people, it’s not surprising that they simply do not exercise.

This is an increasingly dangerous problem – and American Eagle Cycles has a great solution.

Our Freedom Cycle is designed to provide safe, low-impact exercise for those who cannot participate in traditional forms of exercise. The sturdy bucket seat allows riders to cycle in comfort without any fear of falling and our easy steering and shifting functions make your ride a breeze.

Without the hassles and discomforts of a traditional bicycle, our Freedom Cycle helps you get your recommended exercise and all the benefits that come with it. The cardiovascular exercise of cycling is proven to reduce cholesterol, strengthen your heart and reduce blood pressure, all of which greatly lower your risk for complications like diabetes and stroke.

To accommodate for all riders, American Eagle Cycles even provides custom models. We make these customized cycles especially for you, so your tricycle can adjust to your unique body type and you can ride in the most ideal comfort.

A healthy lifestyle isn’t a “One Size Fits All” deal.

At American Eagle Cycles, we understand that traditional exercise is not for everyone – but we think that health and happiness should be for everyone.

If the thought of balancing on a painful bicycle seat or running miles on a treadmill makes you shiver, stop torturing yourself with exercise that isn’t for you. Exercise should be fun, safe and comfortable – and that’s what we were thinking when we made our Freedom Cycle just for you.
