This January we are proud to announce the arrival of 10 brand new Keiser M3+ bikes that will be added to our Indoor Cycling Studio. These new bikes will mean more participants will be able to enjoy the classes. More bikes means more sweating!
5 Physical Benefits of Indoor Cycling
Indoor Cycling Classes are excellent for your cardiovascular system. Over time, continuous cardiovascular activity and upon repeated workouts your heart becomes stronger and better able to handle increased demands. A strong heart can greatly lower your chances of developing heart disease, can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and can help lower your overall resting heart rate.
Lowered Stress Levels
Exercise releases those happy-mood inducing neurotransmitters known as endorphins. Endorphins are known to create feelings of euphoria, lower your stress level and enhance the body’s immune response.
Increased Muscular Endurance
This refers to the ability of a muscle to continually and repeatedly exert force over an extended period of time. In an indoor Cycling class, this happens when you pedal against resistance, which can greatly increase the endurance of the muscles in the legs: quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus, and even the calf muscles. Working out these muscles will also help to strengthen the surrounding bones, tendons and ligaments.
If your fitness goals include weight or fat loss, an Indoor Cycling class is the place for you! According to spinning.com, individuals can burn anywhere between 400-600 calories per average 45-minute class.
For such a high-intensity workout, Indoor Cycling is surprisingly low impact. Many people who have recently recovered from orthopedic injuries turn to indoor Cycling to help them get back on track. When done correctly, there is minimal impact on the hip, knee and ankle joints.
