Don’t Let Your Arthritis Be An Excuse – Get Motivated With Ding! Bikes
Many with rheumatoid arthritis don’t exercise.
In fact, more than 40 percent of people with RA are inactive and up to 65 percent of this inactivity is due to two reasons – lack of motivation and belief of the benefits of physical activity.
People who lacked strong motivation for physical activity, and people who lacked a strong belief in the benefits of exercise were 2.5 to 3 times more likely to be inactive than those who had strong motivation or held strong beliefs.
Everyone knows it’s important to remain active for your health’s sake, but it’s even more essential for those with RA. In fact, people with this condition have a decreased life expectancy simply because they commonly remain inactive, which increases the risk for heart conditions. Exercise, however, is good for your heart and helps relieve the pain RA patients have by strengthening the muscle around the joints.
Despite massive efforts to motivate RA patients to exercise more, the numbers of sedentary RA patients remains surprisingly high.
But Ding! Bikes (based in Orlando, Florida, but available online at www.dingbikes.com) is here to help get all of those suffering from arthritis pain, or other limiting conditions, to get active and start exercising. We know it’s not always an easy task, especially if you suffer from joint pain, but we have the perfect tool to ease you into a safe, effective and fun exercise regime.
Take, for example, the Ding! Jaunty Trike:
Small, portable and light on its wheels, Jaunty is easy to manage, easy to ride and easy to work into everyday life. For smaller people with less-than-perfect balancing abilities, Jaunty’s compact frame makes it easy to mount, easy to dismount, and easy to put both feet on the ground. Hop up, and you’ve got yourself a smooth, sailing ride that stays stable through low and medium speeds. Fold it up, and you’ve got a trike that tucks away in a breeze. Ease. Convenience. The occasional escape. That’s the Jaunty way.
But Ding! Bikes isn’t just about the hardware, it’s also about our unique, friendly customer service and our helping hand. The Ding! team will deliver your high-quality bike or adult trike ready to ride. We are proud of our bikes and nothing makes us happier than knowing they make people happier … and healthier, especially those who have limited mobility or joint pain, giving them the freedom to enjoy one of their favorite childhood past-times.
