Gay Health – Keeping fit during Quarantine

It is almost twelve months since we started experiencing bouts of quarantine measures. Many people around the world including gay population, started working from home. Holidays were cancelled, local gyms closed and access to many sport facilities limited. In spite of a rapid vaccination, we don’t know how long will this situation last. Fitness is important part of health in gay population lifestyle. Many gay people from my circle have stopped exercising and are more house-bound than ever. Friend of mine suggested the other day to write post about keeping fit during quarantine. Here it is. Make no mistakes, I am not an expert on this topic. Gay health without fitness is just not complete.

Oh, by the way, I hope you like the cover photo. He seems quite fit to me. Do you agree?

If you love sweating your way through a good cycling class, then giving up the studio and getting into a home workout groove over the past year has likely been a challenge. When it comes to investing in an fitness exercise bike to use at home, you not only have to consider the price. For many it is also important how much space it’ll take up. That’s why many gay shoppers have turned to the Exerpeutic Folding Exercise Bike. One model they say solves both of those problems in one. It is inexpensive, will keep you fit and maintain good health.

The fold-out upright bike  is designed so that it can easily be tucked away in between uses. With a US$200 price tag, it costs a fraction of what other options do. And best of all, it has an impressive 11,000 five star ratings, with some gay shoppers calling it their “best quarantine purchase.”

Gadgets Watch – The best Fitness Trackers

As many more people are working towards leading much healthier lives, the role of fitness trackers is increasing

Is it worth trying?

“It doesn’t wobble, makes virtually no noise (that’s just my knees) and the resistance goes up high enough to be a real workout. The top levels are hard enough for good HIIT sessions. Unless you are REALLY used to doing hill climbs and so on,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “Is it the same as a Peloton or a fancy spin bike? Nope, but it’s also less than 10 percent of the price.”

Over 400 reviewers specifically mentioned how well-suited Exerpeutic’s bike is for small spaces. With a few adding that the size of the bike doesn’t negatively impact its sturdiness. In fact, the machine has a weight limit of 300 pounds and can accommodate tall riders. Well — though it’s worth noting, one reviewer says  that the lowest seat height setting is just a little too high for riders shorter than 5 feet.

If you have reservations that this extra affordable bike won’t last the test of time, rest assured that its quality is still impressive. “I purchased this bike on xxxxx,” wrote another gay shopper. “It became a real lifesaver once osteoarthritis of the hip made it difficult to use the equipment at the gym, and even more so when the gym had to shut down due to Covid-19. It’s been steadfast, sturdy, and reliable through it all.”

I must admit that information I am presenting here is from the second hand. I also intentionally have not mentioned where tis product can be bought. Purpose of this post is not to sell or advertise. Purpose is to get our gay shoppers start thinking about exercise. It might not be suitable for hard core fitness enthusiast but should be fine for an ordinary gay bloke during quarantine.
