What is indoor cycling?
Indoor cycling is typically taught in classes of perhaps up to 20 people. The classes are almost always set to music and are a proper cardio workout, while also strengthening the lower body and shoulders in particular. While neither rhythmical nor particularly complex in the movements, participants will be standing, sprinting, and sitting on the bike at various times, and altering their speed accordingly. For effective and continued weight loss, increasing resistance – weight in the pedals – will be needed. Classes typically last 30-60 minutes.
