It's winter. It's cold and it can be hard to motivate yourself after all the comforts and excesses of Christmas.
But fear not. Our latest, high-end exercise equipment here at China Fleet is fitted with a whole host of new technologies, helping to take the pain out of exercising. Through large touch-screens affixed to the equipment including bikes and treadmills, you can access a host of engaging technology. When connected, the consoles provide detailed workout results and play virtual courses – perfect for cycling the French Alps! Plus, with internet connectivity and integrated TV, you can stream your favourite shows from Netflix, be inspired with videos from YouTube or just browse the Web. With Bluetooth connectivity you can play music and also pair with some fitness apps and trackers too.
There's nothing wrong with tuning into a show while you're on a trainer. It can actually have some surprising benefits.
Watching TV while you're running or cycling can help decrease boredom and provide distraction "thus helping you push through the pain and exercise at a greater intensity or for a longer time," says University of Texas professor John Higgins, MD, Director of Exercise Physiology.
You may be surprised how many calories you can burn while watching your favourite shows. Last year, Netflix unveiled its 'Watch It While You Work It' campaign, releasing statistics on how many calories viewers can burn on a treadmill or stationary bike while watching single shows, movies, or entire seasons. A 44-minute episode of The Walking Dead, for example, is long enough to burn 152 on a treadmill set at 4 mph (15-minutes per mile) with no incline. Likewise, a season of House of Cards will burn you 4,561 calories at the same speed, and the entire Breaking Bad series a whopping 17,553.
It can be great incentive to keep up or start a new fitness habit. Plus, as an extra incentive, we currently have a special offer of £10 Joining Fees on Health Club Membership throughout January 2019. (Normally £40 per adult, £20 per child) No annual contract, under 6s go free. T&Cs apply
