Matters of the heart
Worldwide, heart disease and strokes are the leading causes of death. But at the heart of it—80% of all cases of cardiovascular disease are preventable. It’s time to take control.
Reduced Exertion HIIT (REHIT) helps you improve your VO2max (the maximum amount of oxygen you use during exercise) most efficiently. And this improvement lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, as well as promoting longevity.
CAROL Bike workouts give the most effective cardiorespiratory exercise and can help you increase your VO2max by 12%—in just 8 weeks.
A public health problem
Physical inactivity is the biggest public health problem of the 21st century. Insufficient physical activity is the 4th biggest killer worldwide. Low cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) leads to more avoidable deaths than smoking, diabetes, and obesity combined.
Up to 5 million estimated deaths per year could be averted if the global population were more active.

REHIT promotes heart health
As we’ve established, REHIT is the most efficient way of improving your VO2max, the key measure of cardiovascular fitness. The higher your VO2max, the better your capacity for consuming oxygen becomes—allowing your heart to do more in fewer beats.
Studies have shown that the risk of cardiovascular disease and early death is much lower in people with a high VO2max, compared to people with a low VO2max. Meaning that people who improve their VO2max over time will lower their risk of disease—and live longer.
REHIT helps you live longer
A 10% increase in VO2max can reduce the risk of mortality due to cardiovascular disease by 20% and add 2 years of healthy life expectancy.

The most effective workout
Improved VO2max comes with sustained aerobic exercise. But less than 5% of the population meet the recommendations for aerobic exercise. Why? A lack of time. But there is an answer…
