Cycling may be low impact, but don’t mistake low impact for low results – cycling is the class that most participants love to hate. Not only is it a great cardiovascular workout, it will help tone your legs and gluts.
Taking care of your cardiovascular exercise needs at any intensity has been shown to increase metabolism, strengthen the cardiovascular system, reduce stress, increase circulation, and even improve self-esteem. And when you take it to a healthy level of intensity, you’ll burn fat and calories like you wouldn’t believe. With classes like fat blasting high intensity 30-minute Sprint™ and 55 minute dripping-with-sweat cycle, you’re sure to feel the burn! There are also great classes to ease into if you’re new to spinning.
HAC Offers Cycling Classes Included with Your Membership!
RPM™: This is the indoor cycling workout where you ride to the rhythm of powerful music. Take on the terrain with your inspiring team coach who leads the pack through hills, flats, mountain peaks, time trials, and interval training. Discover your athlete within – sweat and burn to reach your endorphin high.
Cycle: Come join this 55 minute cycling class and experience the thrill of hills, jumps, flats and more! This class is the perfect complement to RPM!
Cycle Express: Great for the new participant or those who want a short but effective cardio workout in 30 minutes. Learn proper form and technique while you enjoy great music and the full indoor cycle experience in a half hour.
Bike 2 Mat: A 65-minute class that begins with 30 minutes of cycling and ends with 35 minutes of heated yoga. In cycling, the hamstrings, quadriceps and hips never rest. Over developed quadriceps and tight hamstrings can pull the hips out of alignment. Yoga alleviates muscle tightness from logging long hours in the saddle. A yoga practice focuses on flexibility, core strength and balance. Cycling requires not only physical strength but intense focus and concentration. The attention to breath and mind body connection in yoga can be employed by cyclists. Each class will optimize your stamina, flexibility, balance and strength. Members only, no additional fee.
LES MILLS SPRINT™ is a 30-minute High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout, using an indoor bike to achieve fast results. It’s a quick and hard style of training that returns rapid results with minimum joint impact. The short duration of a LES MILLS SPRINT workout will motivate you to push your physical and mental limits. It features bursts of intensity where you work as hard as possible, followed by periods of rest that prepare you for the next effort. The payoff is you will smash your fitness goals and burn calories for hours after each workout.
Virtual Cycling Is Also Included with Your Membership!
