Staying healthy with an office job? Simple! http://bikesandhikesla.com/2016/07/15/staying-healthy-with-an-office-job-simple/ http://bikesandhikesla.com/2016/07/15/staying-healthy-with-an-office-job-simple/#respond Sat, 16 Jul 2016 00:05:50 +0000 http://bikesandhikesla.com/?p=3770 Continue Reading]]>  

Who doesn’t agree that it can be rather difficult to accommodate a healthy lifestyle while having an office job? Long periods of sitting with only minimal movement, strange eating habits, as well as a high level of stress to only name a few challenges that every employee comes across while working his/her desk job.

Although this problem is well known, many people are not aware that a few easily implemented changes can help you stay fit and healthy.

Our first suggestion is to eat breakfast (a coffee doesn’t count)! A wholesome breakfast can give you an incredible start into the day by providing necessary vitamins and minerals to your body, which increases happiness and energy levels and therefore boosts productivity. Moreover, it will help you prevent mid-day snacking when we get tired and throw healthy-eating resolutions out the door.

Replacing sugary snacks and candies with fresh fruits and vegetables is the next step. If you make it part of your routine, forgoing the candy bar for a banana will become second nature.

While it is easier to just go out for lunch or order in, it can be costly and quite unhealthy at times, depending on the restaurants in the neighborhood. Therefore, preparing lunch at home and bringing it to work will not only save you tons of money, but it will help you stay slim.

Our next tip is to stay hydrated and to try to incorporate as much exercise as possible into your work day. While standing up during phone conversations is a good start, your lunch break should be utilized as well. Just walk or bike to the nearest park and spend your break enjoying your homemade food in the sun.

We know that you might not be able to drag yourself to the gym after work, but a little sport in the evening will help your body tremendously! We usually recommend a nice bike ride to leave behind the entire stress of the day and to just enjoy your surroundings.

LAID

Moreover, give your eyes a break from the screen after work. We know it’s easy to just lean back and watch your favorite shows, but your eyes could use a break. However, this gives you more time you spend with your loved ones, for hobbies or for food prep 😉

Last but not least… Get enough shut-eye! Waking up refreshed and energized in the morning will change your entire attitude about the day and help you stay positive and stick to your healthy life style!

Pokémon Bike Rental Special! http://bikesandhikesla.com/2016/07/12/pokemon-bike-rental-special/ http://bikesandhikesla.com/2016/07/12/pokemon-bike-rental-special/#respond Wed, 13 Jul 2016 00:04:25 +0000 http://bikesandhikesla.com/?p=3762 Continue Reading]]> pokemon go

Bikes and Hikes LA has a special offer for all of you Pokémon Trainers: Catch more Pokémon in less time by biking around the city instead of walking. Be more like Deoxys. The Pokémon Bike Rental is only $25 for 24 hours and it comes with a lock, helmet and most importantly a phone holder for your bike. No driving into poles here!

Ever wondered what it would be like if your childhood dreams came to life?! Back in the 90s, everybody dreamed of being able to catch em all!

After a tiring day at school, nothing felt more invigorating than watching the Pokémon series on TV to learn the newest moves and tricks that would prepare you beat your friends the next day during recess. Who knew a cute little yellow fluffball could be so powerful. Picachu! “Bless you.: “Come on, Mom, I didn’t sneeze…”

If you remember all of this, you are now officially old. Pokémon started… wait for it…. 20 years ago! Now, that your last Tamagochi has passed away, you can finally catch your own Pokémon pet!

Pokémon Go allows you to discover new Pokémon everywhere you go. You can catch them, train them, improve them and finally battle them at the Gyms. And no, you do not have to actually work out. You could though, if you complete your Pokémon hunt on a bike! Imagine how much faster you would be. And faster means more Pokémon and bam… you are the Gym leader. And again, you still don’t have to use the elliptical. You can tell everyone that you went to the gym though – we won’t tell.

Gotta Catch Em All!!

An amazing and unique way to explore Los Angeles by bike! http://bikesandhikesla.com/2016/07/09/an-amazing-and-unique-way-to-explore-los-angeles-by-bike/ http://bikesandhikesla.com/2016/07/09/an-amazing-and-unique-way-to-explore-los-angeles-by-bike/#respond Sat, 09 Jul 2016 23:19:28 +0000 http://bikesandhikesla.com/?p=3609 Continue Reading]]> When you visit a new city, you want to make the most out of it. Experience every aspect of the new surroundings. But how can you do that in a place you have never been before? Usually without knowing anybody in the neighborhood?

Our first advice is to rent a bike. It is incredible how much your perspective of your environment changes while paddling through the streets, enjoying a nice workout. Traffic becomes secondary, nature and little details about houses are the new focus. Stop whenever you want, decide your own pace, and don’t be rushed or restricted by traffic.

If you want to make your experience even better, our recommendation is to tour the city with a native! They know the areas like no other, have amazing insider knowledge and can open the door for an authentic experience.

Our LA in a Day bike adventure combines those two aspects and many more! Start your ride in West Hollywood, where rock & roll meets fashion, art merges with lifestyle and everyone is free to be different. Then go up to the Sunset Strip before you’re off to Beverly Hills and Bel-Air, home of the rich and famous. You will see over 30 celebrity houses in areas tour busses are banned. A walking tour of Greystone Mansion is one of the highlights in the hills. This amazing estate with its rich and interesting history is an iconic location for motion picture and television shoots. Greystone has been featured in dozens of films, including The Big Lebowski, Spider-Man, The Social Network, and is even known as Rory’s school, Chilton, in Gilmore Girls.

Continue your amazing ride through neighborhoods such as Westwood and Brentwood on your way to Santa Monica Beach. Bike over the Pier before having a nice break and enjoying a delicious lunch in Venice Beach

On the way back to West Hollywood, you will see the Venice Canals in all its beauty, ride through Marina del Ray and Culver City, over Robertson Boulevard and so much more!

The tour gives you everything you could ask for including stunning views, plenty of photo opportunities and will leave you with the best and most authentic impression of the city!

Experience LA! Don’t just drive past it!
