TerraTrike, the “worlds most comfortable recumbent trikes,” have become the weight-loss solution for more than 10,000 people world-wide including the winner of the reality television show “The Biggest Loser” Season 13, Jeremy Britt.
In July of 2012, Jeremy came to TerraTrike and was fitted for a trike. Like so many new TerraTrikers, Jeremy couldn't help but notice the huge difference from riding an upright bike. "My trike is extremely comfortable and easy to ride. And even though the bike looks complex, it's easy to adjust." Because of this, Jeremy feels it will be his easiest method of keeping his weight in check.
"I haven't ridden a bike since I was a kid - since I've had my driver's license, and I don't remember it being this fun! The trike will fit perfectly in my plans to stay active and keep a healthy lifestyle. Even when I'm sore after running or weight-lifting, I can still ride the trike because it's so comfortable. Plus, it's still a really great workout!"
TerraTrikes are also helping those who’ve undergone surgeries, for weight loss or otherwise, continue on their journey and get safe, comfortable exercise. 52 year old Cal Oslon has lost over 200 pounds with his TerraTrike. “The majority of the pounds I lost went away because of the surgery,” said Cal Olson. “But the reason they’re off two years later? That’s due to TerraTrike.” Sitting on the comfortable seat of his trike, Olson can ride at an average of 12-14 mph getting a great work out that doesn’t bother his injured knee.
TerraTrike riders can burn an average of 235 calories per half-hour riding at a moderate speed (12-14 mph), and the cycling motion, especially when going uphill, helps develop muscle and burn fat. And because of the TerraTrikes’ design, riders of all conditions, ages, and sizes can benefit on a TerraTrike.
Every day, we hear customers who come in to our shop tell us about the weight they’ve lost and how they’re now riding 20-30 miles per day, ” said Wayne Oom, CFO of WizWheelz Inc (maker of the TerraTrike brand). “These are the same people that, just months ago, hadn’t been able to exercise for years due to discomfort. It’s pretty inspiring.”
