Much more than an object, much more than a design icon. When an athlete approaches home cycling and his bicycle, a relationship is at stake. The intimacy that is created with the tool of so much effort means something special: it is a real bond generating rhythm.
The rise of home cycling
The soundtrack is the one you prefer: the total silence or the playlist that starts slowly and intensifies with your performance to start training with the custom soundtrack is another story.
The advantages of training at home
Forget all this. Your home is a temple, where you can neither interrupt the exercise nor the calming of your thoughts. The elegance of the tools for exercising, their design to be appreciated in the quiet of your effort. Where you can breathe, allowing yourself to be detached from everything else.
Of course, the gym can counterbalance an inadequate degree of determination. Workouts and home cycling are not for everyone. It means looking at yourself, discovering a deeper and less ostentatious will. As Lao Tzu wrote: He who knows others is wise; he who knows himself is enlightened. It's a matter of determination and humility. Imagine yourself in the middle of the room on the pedals, modulating intensity and speed: training of thought, conceptual commitment before physical. Opening your eyes in the silence of the house at 5 am for your home cycling session, leaning your arms on the handlebar pursuing your goal sounds like a mantra.
