Indoor Cycling

What is Indoor Cycling?- Using a stationary bike, you will experience a guided ride designed to simulate terrain and situations similar to riding a bike outdoors. With a variety of road-like challenges and moves, you will strengthen your entire body. Some of the movements and positions include hill climbs, sprints and interval training. A well-trained instructor uses music, motivation, visualization and enthusiastic coaching. Multiple adjustment points on the bike are used to increase the difficulty of pedaling. Thus, cycling serves a range of fitness levels from beginner to expert. Pedals are equipped with toe clips for biking shoes and baskets for those wearing normal athletic shoes. Classes are co-ed and run for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the schedule.

What are the Benefits of Indoor Cycling?- Cycling is the best calorie burning workout in a group setting offered at our location. Improve your cardio-respiratory endurance, raise your metabolism and shed pounds of excess weight. Cycling offers a low impact workout, making it safe for those with joint issues or weak ankles. A wonderful substitute for running, cyclists control the level of intensity to suit their ability and fitness level while strengthening the muscles of the lower body. Burn 400 to 500 calories per hour while toning your quadriceps, hamstrings, back and hips.

What to Bring: Padded shorts aid in comfort and help to avoid chafing. Also choose moisture-wicking clothes with good breathability. Regular athletic shoes or clip in biking shoes will work. Bring water and two towels (one to use and one for the handlebars). You will sweat! Our gym does not have an online reservation system. Please arrive early to reserve a bike. The sign-up sheet is usually put out an hour before class starts. Classes do fill up.

Fitness Level: Adaptive to all levels. Beginners welcome! Geared toward all fitness levels.

Attending Your First Indoor Cycling Class?- Arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to meet the instructor and setup your bike prior to riding. Comfort is important, and to avoid injury, make sure your bio-mechanical positioning on the bike is right for your height. Select a bike where the instructor can observe your form throughout the duration of class. Bring extra water, two towels and a change of clothes to use after class. There is no need to invest in cycling shoes until you know the class is right for you. Gloves and sweatbands are optional, but expect to sweat a lot. Inquire at the front desk about our Introduction to Spinning Class offered once each month if the regular class option seems to intimidating.
