Make exercise a sustainable habit

Adherence is the key to success when it comes to exercise. That's why we've designed CAROL Bike to help you build long-lasting exercise habits—with ease of adherence at the forefront.

We believe that adherence matters most. More than workout performance or effectiveness. After all, the best workout in the world won’t help if you don’t do it.

Research has shown that shorter and fewer sprints during Sprint Interval Training leads to a more positive emotional response from riders, leaving them feeling more confident to continue with their workouts.

Other research has shown that just 2x20s sprints are sufficient to elicit the most potent training stimulus, while 4, 5, 6, or more sprints appear to deliver less benefits.

While it is not fully understood why, one possible explanation is that riders may pace themselves when faced with multiple or longer sprints, holding back during each sprint rather than going “all out” – but that’s exactly what makes REHIT so effective.

The REHIT Intense ride with 2x20-second sprints is in a sweet spot that delivers optimal results and feels doable for most – helping to create a sustainable habit.

If 2x20-seconds feel too hard for you, try the 2x15 or 2x10-second REHIT workouts. They are substantially easier yet deliver still worthwhile results.  The 2x10s REHIT workout has been shown in research to still deliver around 40% of the fitness benefit of the 2x20-second ride.
