Health Benefits of Balance Bikes

Here at Kiddimoto we understand that when learning to ride there has to be a balance of education and fun. Not only is learning to ride an absolute blast, here are some of our top health benefits of balance bikes.

Weight Control:

It is no question that the weight of little ones is a hot topic in the UK at the moment, it is said that a quarter of 2-10 year olds are overweight or obese. Overweight and obesity in adults is predicted to reach 70% by 2034. Obesity and overweight are linked to a wide range of conditions including diabetes, asthma and heart disease. Just a small amount of excercise each day an help to combat this, and what better way to excercise than having fun on your balance bike.

Improved Posture and coordination:

Good posture in children is important, not only does it carry health benefits it can also increase overall confidence. Balance bikes command the correct posture needed to progress onto a standard bicycle.

Increased cardiovascular fitness:

They may already be running circles around you at the park, but cycling is a great way to keep hearts in check. Plus, it is fairly low intensity so if you’re out on a ride¬† you will hardly know your excercising!

Improved Joint Mobility:

Balance bikes improve core strength and the running element of the bikes can improve/maintain good mobility in joints.

Mental Health:

Just as important as physical health, balance bikes improve confidence, independence and a positive mental attitude. ‘Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.’ John F Kennedy.
