This session is called a “workout” for two reasons: you have to work… and it is outside of life’s normal required or anticipated exertion. Hence, a “work-out.”
This amazing Spinning class demands that you stay steady with your tempo, steady with increasing gears, and steady with your leg drive, in order to achieve the ultimate goal of mastering a ride: thus finishing a work-out!
People who are good at internally generating beats perform well on synchronized tasks (like cycling). People who struggle “feeling” the tempo of a song can learn to re-train their brain to better establish “rhythm.” This 50-minute ride is specifically designed to turn your cycling effort into a “routine.” This allows for greater relaxation and a more rhythmic movement of the legs, which then allow us to “free” our brain from stress and worry! Let’s ride.
11 world famous Studio SWEAT instructors, saddled with 11 unique coaching styles, will motivate you through a calorie-crushing, full-length (plus some) Spinning Class. Anyone can take this class, just pace yourself and take it one pedal stroke at a time, and I guarantee you’ll enjoy the ride.
Basic is defined as “the essential facts or principles of a subject or skill.” This ride is a 30 minute focus on the basics of riding: posture, cadence, proper gear, the importance of a steady tempo… all of these are covered in this short, but challenging, sweat session!
Somewhere between a crushing ride and a recovery ride is a “conversation” ride. This ride, while solo, mirrors what a group ride feels like. This incredible 45 minute Spinning class has short, hard bursts of speed and power, offset by a smooth downhill transition where riders discuss life. Throw in two maximum power climbs and you have a perfect blend. Let’s ride.
This ride is about the essence of consistency: the ability to “show steady conformity to character, profession, or belief.”
Who you are is defined by what you repeatedly do. This ride is about maintaining consistent gear, tempo, and rhythm. A perfect metaphor of life!
When you cycle, it is often alone. This class has an eclectic music choice that allows you to think about everything other than the ride. To enjoy the effort, without undue thought, is the essence of riding. This is not a workout – it is a ride!
Two for one special with Mike and Mir! Variety is key to sustaining a workout plan. This amazing Spinning class has you alternating between the styles of two riders to provide just that. Whether it is short runs and sprints, or long sustained hill climbs and flat road rides, this ride gets your brain and body connected! As an added bonus, we finish with a cool down that includes a nice long post Spinning stretch that helps increase the flow of blood through the muscles for faster recovery!
This ride is about summertime fun that’ll lift your spirits anytime of the year. With upbeat tunes and the sheer enjoyment of working out, nothing beats this 50 minute ride, followed by some great core work. That’s what this fun Spin class brings!
An Enduring Ride.
To display endurance, one must have the ability “to sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity.” If accomplished, it is declared that one has “endured.” This word describes one who has “gained continued acknowledgement of worth or greatness.”
This endurance Spinning workout frames all of the qualities one needs to gain endurance: three long, sustained 8+ minute rides, followed by a 20 minute series of High Intensity Intervals. Then we culminate with a 9+ minute climb and cool down. The ultimate goal of cycling, indoor or out, is to cement your relationship with the art of enduring! This class will get you there.
Consistency refers to “harmony among parts.” Hopefully, cycling is a “part” of your workout regime and you are focusing on aligning it with your other activities. This ride is about knowing when to push hard, when to push steadily, and when to recover from those two efforts. Blended together, these form the “consistency” required to be an athletic cyclist! Give it a try.
There is nothing better than the reward of working out. Knowing that you’re capable of doing something, and then doing it, makes you feel so alive! This ride is the gift to yourself for your prior successes. It is the ride that defines the potential of greatness. So open it!
