Aging takes a toll on your body in ways that we can’t always see. When age happens at the cellular level, muscles get weak because they don’t regenerate as easily as they once did. We all know that exercise is good for you. But did you know the lesser known fact that the type of exercise you do should vary by your age? The best workout for aging muscles depends on your body type, age, and some other factors. Here’s why:
Mitochondria produce energy but it diminishes in vigor and number as we age. According to a study published in Cell Metabolism, high-intensity interval training improved age-related decline in muscle mitochondria. The study also found that cellular health as it relates to aging can be improved by exercise, especially if it was intense.
The good news is that you can use the Trikke active riding experience to engage your whole body. Even the electric version of the Trikke can be body-powered. Whether you’re a thirty-something or seventy-something, a Trikke can get you to move in ways that are good for your hips. One of our customers has this to say:
I am 70 yrs old and bought a Trikke 8 at a garage sale in June. I went home and watched instruction videos on YouTube. I went out and got on my Trikke 8 and away I went, I have never fallen off or even come near to falling off. What a great machine for keeping in shape. My hips haven’t felt this good in years.

Some activity is better than none to promote health during aging. If you understand yourself as you get older, you’ll realize that your body is unique – and your workout should be too! The magic of a Trikke is the way in which it articulates. A rider can turn and lean the vehicle, all while keeping all three wheels on the ground. This is the essence of the technology, which promotes your overall health and well-being.
Even former President Jimmy Carter likes the workout that Trikke offers: “It gives you a workout from your ankles all the way up to your shoulders and your neck.”
