What is it?
Indoor cycling is an aerobic exercise that takes place on a specially designed stationary bicycle. As you pedal, motivating music plays and the instructor talks you through a visualization of an outdoor cycling workout: “You’re going up a long hill now, you can’t see the top yet.…” During the class you vary your pace — sometimes pedaling as fast as you can, other times cranking up the tension and pedaling slowly from a standing position. This helps you to focus inwardly and work on your mind as well as your body. Why we love it: Indoor cycling burns serious calories (about 450 in 45 minutes) and offers an awesome aerobic workout that makes your heart pump fast. It also tones your quadriceps and outer thigh muscles like nobody’s business! Because you stay in one place with the same basic movement throughout, it doesn’t involve a lot of coordination; it’s easier to concentrate on your form than in other types of aerobic classes. And although you follow the general instructions of the teacher, you are in control when it comes to your pace. You can finish a class, regardless of your fitness level, simply by adjusting your pace or the tension knob on the bike.
