What is it?
Les Mills RPM is a virtual class involving high-intensity interval training (HIIT) set to tunes that will really get your pulse racing. Get results faster, ride hard. RPM™ is a group indoor cycling workout where you control the intensity. It’s fun, low impact and you can burn up to 675 calories a session. With great music pumping and the group spinning as one, your instructor takes you on a journey of hill climbs, sprints and flat riding.
In an RPM workout, you repeatedly spin the pedals to reach your cardio peak then ease back down – keeping pace with the pack to lift your personal performance and boost your cardio fitness. RPM is a great way to build up your sense of personal achievement. You can draw on the group’s energy and find your rhythm in the music. You control your own resistance levels and speed so you can build up your fitness level over time. It’s a journey, not a race!
RPM is literally easier than riding a bike
Born from the sport of cycle racing, RPM uses simulated climbs and sprints in a workout where you control the intensity.
• Race proven and body proven
• Group riding that lifts personal results

Your instructor will show you how to set up your bike and all the basic cycling moves. You can start off with four or five tracks and work your way up to a full class. The class structure fosters a fun group mentality whereby you will feel encouraged to match and meet the overall pace as you work towards your health and fitness goals.
