Group Cycling is one of the hottest trends in the fitness industry, it can over time get you into the best shape of your life.
Many people see group indoor cycling as the biggest thing to hit the fitness industry since step aerobics. Enlivened by racing drills, interval training and visualisation.. Group Cycling is an excellent way of reproducing the feeling of cycling outdoors. If you are looking for a high intensity, shorter duration workout, but need a little extra motivation from an instructor and enjoy the social aspect of a group class, then indoor cycling is for you.
Many people feel a little intimidated at the thought of trying an indoor cycling class, assuming that it is an intense, overwhelming workout that only the very fit can handle. However, this is a common misconception. The beauty of indoor cycling is that you work at your own level and you set your own intensity by adjusting the bike's resistance, so your age, size or fitness level doesn’t matter. You are in charge of your own ride.
Because indoor cycling is both aerobic and anaerobic, many experts believe it is the ultimate workout, providing you with both a terrific cardiovascular workout and training for muscular endurance. In a single workout, you can burn between 400-500 calories; that’s more than Body Pump, Body Combat, a gym session, or a standard aerobics class!
Every Group Cycling class is different, as there are no set choreographed moves, This adaptability is what makes Group Cycling fun, setting it apart from other fitness trends, which often fail to keep the body and mind inspired. This diversity in training develops ultimate fitness without over training. Indoor cycling is also particularly versatile as it is a non-impact activity and as such, is ideal for pre- and post-natal women, and people with conditions such as back pain or arthritis.
