Mistake 1 – Keeping the Windows Closed
When you start cycling inside your room, ensure that your room is properly ventilated. During exercise and vigorous cycling, you will need more oxygen which is not available inside the room. So, always keep your doors and windows open during the exercise. If you have a fan or air conditioner, switch them on too. It ensures better flow of air for your exercise and keeps you fresh.
Mistake 2 – Working Out Alone Without Company
Another deadly mistake did by most people who pursue online cycling is doing it alone. The real advantage of the mode of cycling is that you can do it along with others. What is the purpose of using a fitness app like Vingo, if you are not going to mingle with others? Even if you don’t like to socialise, you can still participate in online competitions and running races or cycling tours where you don’t have to interact a lot with others.
Mistake 3 – Sharing Too Much Information in the Online World
When you start using apps like Vingo, you can literally speak with people on the other side of the planet with ease during your exercises. So, it might be hard to control your initial emotions. Everyone is not what they seem in the online world. Some might sound rude but they might just be tensed and don’t want to interact with others. Similarly, those who are overtly and perhaps too friendly are people looking to steal your personal information. So, don’t share too much personal information in the online world. Even if you have known a person for a prolonged period of time, censor some critical information. This way, you will be safe from cyber bullying and other cyber crimes.
Mistake 4 – Using Old Equipment or Devices
If you are still using the old and previous generation exercise equipment like your treadmill or exercise bike, then you are using the app at a level less than its capacity. You will only get a sub-par performance from the app. Vingo is a powerful indoor cycling app, use it right with the latest equipment.
Mistake 5 – Spending All Your Time on One Indoor Exercise
If you like cycling, you should pursue it. However, doing too much of one thing can make you bored easily and you might start resenting the exercise altogether. So, have some variety in your exercises and start using the running trails near me inside the Vingo app.
