Residents are taking a spin on video game technology


Residents are taking a virtual spin to stay fit and active by way of the CyberCycle in the fitness center at the Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens.  

More than dozen residents are jumping on the popular stationary bike, which was first added to the community’s gym in 2016. It has a screen that offers more than 40 computer-simulated environments. That ranges from the tough mountain climbs to flat, scenic terrain.

CyberCycle "is just more interesting than riding a bicycle," resident Charlotte Maschke told the Clovis Independent and ABC30 Action News. "It has a lot of curves, you ride through the trees, you go across a bridge down and up, so it's really more fun."  

Maschke goes for a 20-minute ride on a daily basis, clocking in nearly 15 miles in almost two-week period; and in 2017, she earned two gold medals for the CyberCycle competition at the San Diego Senior Games.

“I feel stronger—I feel invigorated,” she said.

AJ Castillo, the community’s fitness coordinator, said that the CyberCycle also “drives our residents’ competitive spirit and gets them on here and lets them have fun with that."
