The J is excited to have new, state-of-the-art exercise bikes! On Friday, August 18, we will be installing a new set of exercise bikes in the Cycle Studio. The current exercise bikes have served our members well for the past six years, but Susan Kwasny, the Health and Wellness Director, says “It’s time to get new ones that are technologically equipped to take our members on a more effective bike ride.” These new bikes will have a built-in computer screen that will provide relevant statistics for the rider, such as RPM (rotations per minute), resistance, and distance traveled.
Indoor cycling is perfect for those who want a more engaging and group-oriented workout. The group cycling classes offered by the J are led by an instructor and are a great way to work up a good sweat. During the class, the instructor plays carefully selected music to energize and direct the speed of the workout. The music swells when it’s time to turn up the intensity, and lulls when it’s time to cool down.
The group dynamic of the cycling classes area great motivator to get the most out of every workout. Working out in a group is a fun activity for friends, and also an opportunity to meet new ones!
Cycling workouts are also great for those who have arthritis or other joint problems, as the exercise is very low impact. If you enjoy low impact workouts on the elliptical or swimming, you should consider adding cycling to your exercise routine.
Kwasny says she’s very excited “that our members will get a more effective ride on these new bikes, and they’ll feel the quality of their workout improve on them.”
