What is it?
Using a stationary bike this class will test your strength and endurance while improving your overall fitness levels while burning calories and having fun. In one 45-minute class, you’ll ride a stationary bike to the beat of the awesome music—and burn up to 600 calories in the process. Not only will your lungs be burning and your heart pumping, you’ll also work your glutes, calves, quads, hamstrings, and core.
Studies show that over time, indoor cycling can decrease body fat and body mass index, and improve overall cardiovascular function.
Who is it for?
In case you’re new to this world, an indoor bike is a form of stationary bike. Indoor cycling is a workout that utilizes an upright stationary bike, or Spinning Bike, usually with a heavyweight flywheel and adjustable resistance to change the desired exertion challenge level. The rider sits on an indoor bike just like any other bicycle with feet in pedals and “spins” the flywheel.
The flywheel of an indoor bike is the component that sets it apart from normal stationary bikes. The flywheel helps your leg exertion create momentum that can then be resisted via brakes and resistance functions. This helps mimic the feeling of being on a real road bike. The momentum both challenges and helps keep you going during a workout. That’s all there is to it!
