WHO CAN RIDE A FOOTBIKE
NO AGE OR FITNESS LIMITATION
If you want to be more active, a footbike can be a great way to move around. It’s a sport that can benefit both seasoned athletes and those who are just starting to lead a more active lifestyle. By keeping yourself moving, you’ll have more energy for life.
FOOTBIKING IS AN EXCELLENT SPORT FOR SENIOR
Footbiking improves coordination and therefore motor skills which is something that people at a certain age are slowly losing. The fact that the rider must alternate between the right and left legs means that he trains the connection between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which contributes to improved memory, concentration and cognitive function. In addition to that, footbiking also helps to “lubricate” and exercise joints and improve your circulation.
