What to Know About Riding at Cyklus
Indoor cycling is an excellent workout and a great way to burn a ton of calories while you relieve stress. Stationary bikes allow individual control of resistance levels. Our Keiser M3i bikes are equipped with heart rate monitors and power meters. These tools provide a sure way to keep motivated and accomplish personal fitness goals.
Did you know that an indoor cycling workout of 45 minutes may allow you to burn around 500 calories? That is a huge amount when compared to other types of workouts. However there are other benefits. You will build muscle tone on core muscles, as well as your buttocks and thighs as you develop serious cycling skills that will translate into riding your bike around the city as well.
One of our favourite things about indoor cycling is that it is a low impact exercise that won’t put pressure on knees and joints, as running and some other aerobic exercises do. This workout is often recommended for people that suffer from arthritis. Regular classes will build increased cardiovascular endurance that you will notice. Best of all, music and video contribute to make your workout more exciting.
Remember, classes can be attended at any time during the year in any weather. A note on what to wear: cycling shorts are highly recommended. Light breathable tops that won’t stick to you (synthetic performance fabric if possible) are the most comfortable. We provide the shoes, you provide the socks. Throwing a plastic bag in with your stuff is a great way to get your sweaty clothes home after your spin. Yes, you will sweat that much!
