RPM is an indoor cycling class that gets your heart pumping and your legs burning! Instructors will lead you through hills, mountains, flats, and different interval training rhythms. This fitness class will help improve your aerobic fitness, burns major calories, and is low impact for less soreness.
What Should You Expect?
This indoor cycling class is about 50 minutes, set to music, and takes you through different intervals that will keep your heart pumping and your legs burning. The class will take you through tough cycling with high levels of resistance. Speed is not what matters in an RPM class, it is about pushing through different resistance stages and getting a better workout. You will need to figure out how to adjust your bike, starting with the seat height, and the instructors should be able to help you set up the resistance, if needed. This classes typical structure goes something like this:
- Mixed Terrain
- Free Spin
- Mountain Climb
- Ride Home
These workouts don’t really explain themselves, unless you think about them as if your were biking outside, how would you be riding through hills? How would you be doing a mountains climb? The paces are different and the intensity will change throughout the workout, making you burn more calories and giving you a great cardio class.
What Do You Need to Bring?
Wear workout clothing that are comfortable and allows you to move without rubbing. Cycling shoes are not mandatory, but they will improve your performance. So if you are looking to get the absolute most out of your RPM class, you should invest in some cycling shoes. Don’t forget your water bottle and a towel if you want to be able to dry your sweat throughout this intense interval-training.
