Strap on your bike helmet for Cycle to Work Day on 8 August and get pedalling with Xercise4Less Gyms! It doesn’t matter whether you love cycling to work or haven’t been on a bike for years, now is the opportunity to get on your bike and grind out the gears outdoors or in the gym. You can ride solo to your job or take on a biking challenge with your gym friends for this national bike to work day. With Xercise4Less however you can also make cycle to work day just the start of your bicycle adventures.
Cycle to Work Day is the UK’s biggest cycle commuting event but don’t let that put you in a spin. Xercise4Less gym members can already include cycling in their weekly fitness programme. The benefits of riding a bike don’t have to be limited to cycling to work every day when you can access loads of stationary bikes and indoor cycling classes like spin sessions or virtual cycling.
Let’s take a look at why you should get the lycra on and ride your own Tour de Fitness at your local gym.
The Benefits of Getting on Your Bike in the Gym
At Xercise4Less Gyms we like to lead from the front when it comes to indoor cycling. That’s why we provide 30 spin bikes including IC7 bicycles and 16 upright and recumbent bikes in every gym. There’s no need to bike to work every single day when you can benefit from cycling in our gyms whenever you want. Our spin classes or indoor cycling sessions offer amazing opportunities to go up the gears of your fitness plan. Just think dark room, stationary bikes, blaring chart music and a class full of sweaty cyclists and prepare to be blown away by your fitness improvements.
There’s no need to soft pedal how indoor cycling can supercharge your fitness. Spin cycle classes and virtual cycling increase your cardio fitness while being low impact exercise and there’s no chance of cars splashing you! Indoor cycling helps increase the endurance of your leg muscles and adds muscle definition to your legs and core. Spin classes will also benefit your joints with improved balance, coordination, and gait. As a bonus indoor cycling classes can be a great way to make some new gym buddies. Our gym members have lots of indoor cycling options including spin classes and virtual cycling. Check out our fitness class timetable to come along for the ride.
Grease Your Fitness Wheels with an Xercise4Less Spin Class
With 30 spin bikes including IC7 spin bicycles, your local Xercise4Less gym offers you every incentive to get in the saddle and get cycling. Our Cycle4FiiT spin classes are high-intensity cycling workouts with constant pedalling using varying resistances and speeds to simulate the effects of riding a bike uphill, downhill and fast along straight roads. Work out with an inspirational personal instructor and listen to pulsating chart music as you push yourself to the limit. You won’t be spinning your wheels with indoor cycling; this spin class is a rough ride that will increase fat loss and build muscle as you burn between 500 and 700 calories in an hour’s workout. You can book Cycle4FiiT or any indoor cycling classes with the Xercise4Less mobile app, on our website or at your local gym reception. Spin classes are usually run multiple times during the week.
Change Exercise Gears with a Virtual Cycling Class
Before you ride off into the sunset, spin classes are not your only indoor cycling options. A Virtual Cycling class is a terrific way to build your fitness and build some confidence for cycling outdoors. Stationary bikes will never be dull again when you can choose your location, get on your bike and ride away virtually to destinations around the world. Feel like you’re actually riding outside the gym as you pedal as fast as you can. Virtual cycling isn’t just some gimmick either, riding a virtual bike improves your workout by increasing exercise awareness, concentration and effort rather than staring at a gym wall. You’ll be aided by virtual instructors who’ll guide you along some of the world’s most exciting cycling routes while providing encouragement. Virtual cycling is perfect for every gym member no matter your real body shape, your age or your fitness level.
