Introduction  Based in Miami, executive Jill Marten holds the position of corporate director of human resources at Baptist Health South Florida. Outside of work, Jill Marten enjoys cycling and works out regularly.

About Cycling  Cycling offers many health benefits, both physical and mental. In addition to building strength and muscle tone, cycling increases stamina and improves overall cardiovascular health. Cycling also burns calories and can help people lose or maintain weight. While other exercises can be hard on the knees and the body, cycling is low-stress and low-impact, meaning it can be enjoyed for many years with less stress on the joints than what is experienced in other sports. Cyclists also experience reduced levels of stress and depression due to the endorphin boost.

Conclusion  In addition to the plethora of physical and mental benefits, cycling is also an environmentally friendly and inexpensive alternative to driving. Bikes do not release pollution, do not require insurance or gas, and are easily and cheaply maintained.
