Improving healthspan and longevity can be just like riding a bike

By Eleanor Garth

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has become very popular; alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with recovery periods, it is designed to help to decrease body fat, increase strength and endurance, and improve healthspan in protocols that last approximately half an hour.

But these days, even finding half an hour can be tricky – enter CAROL Bike, an exercise bike designed around Reduced Exertion HIIT (REHIT) and AI-personalization, meaning an effective workout can be delivered in just 5 minutes.


Following a science-based roadmap

We were fascinated by REHIT, but there was just no product for consumers that made it easy to do it. So we contacted scientists who are the leading researchers in that field, who showed the expensive, specialised equipment they use. It wasn’t practical for the consumer, but data from those trials has flown into our product development, and now our bikes are used by leading researchers in that field, including Professor Lance Dalleck in Colorado, Professor Martin Gibala at McMaster University in Canada, Dr Niels Vollaard and Dr Richard Metcalfe in the UK. They all do research now also on our bikes and have published peer-reviewed randomized controlled trials on our bikes that back up those claims. These were independently commissioned by the American Council on Exercise to test and validate our claims.
