There are many ways for you to start the new year with a positive attitude and a healthier outlook, and fitness CycleCast could be exactly what you need.

The rising startup, who’s founder Douglas Lotz previously featured in an interview with StartupBeat, seems to be the gift that keeps on giving.

CycleCast makes studio-quality indoor cycling classes more convenient than ever and makes building a new workout habit fun and easy. The innovative startup recently shared four tips to start the year the right way, in addition to a free gift.

  1. Keep it short: quick exercises with high-intensity intervals can work just as well as longer, lower-intensity workouts (20 minutes is more than enough and any time at all is infinitely better than nothing – government health officials agree!)
  2. Consistency is key: even if it’s a short workout, try to build a habit by maintaining a consistent schedule – if you’re sticking to it, but it feels too easy, slowly increase the duration or number of times you exercise as your schedule allows
  3. Your cooldown is just as important as the workout: taking a bit of time to stretch and recover will pay dividends by reducing soreness and tension so that your body is ready for the next workout
  4. Know your limit: listen to your body – if something hurts, dial it back a little and save yourself for the next workout

Moreover, to incentivize people to get started, CycleCast is offering a special four week-trial. You can access the trial by entering the promo code ESP9GO8. It is also important to note that this offer is only valid in the US.
