Get Stronger with Indoor Cycling

If you are looking for a cardiovascular workout that offers a large expenditure of energy with minimal impact on your hips, knees and ankles – indoor cycling is an excellent option. Not only will your lungs be pumping, you'll also work your calves, quads, hamstrings, core and you will burn up to 600 calories in the process.

How does it work?

Sarah, ACE certified personal trainer and Indoor cycling instructor from Cyklus, Vancouver, recommends indoor cycling, because classes focus on endurance, strength, interval, and high intensity training using the stationary bike. Sarah leads the class through different types of cycling, like uphill climbs, bursts of speed, and short recovery periods with easy pedaling. It is an organized activity with a group fitness format. If joining a group class, find a qualified instructor that helps you set up your bike, reviews safety information, and can motivate you to derive the maximum benefits of the activity. If you enjoy working out with others in a very structured environment, then indoor cycling is a great fit.

Indoor cycling benefits:

  • Joint-friendly. Joints are well protected because the only movements are rotation of the hip and bending of the knee and ankle as it involves remaining seated.

  • Fat-burning. It has been proven that indoor cycling can be part of a very effective weight management program.

  • Enhances muscle definition and shapes the legs.

  • It’s for everyone whatever your age, gender or fitness level is.

  • Anti-ageing workout. It sends fresh blood to the cells, bathing them in oxygen and increasing longevity.

  • Bone-friendly. Increases bone density and combats osteoporosis

Dress for Success

Throw on a moisture-wicking tank top to stay cool. Avoid shorts or baggy sweats— go for comfort with padded bike shorts or 4 way stretch leggings.

By the end of the workout, you may feel like you’ve been through a real adventure because cycling is one of the best cardiovascular activities found in gyms today. You will be proud of what you accomplished!
