What are the Benefits of Indoor Cycling?

According to the U.S. Department of Health ".....regular physical activity substantially reduces the risk of coronary disease, stroke, colon cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.....and helps to control weight, contributes to healthy bones, muscles and joints... reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression..." Need we go on? Cycling is also "low-impact" without the joint stress that you get from "ground-pounding" sports and activities. All good reasons to strap-in/clip-on and RYDE!

Kristie Has Put the Pieces Together

kristie combinedThe last time we profiled Kristie, it was as part of an article where we celebrated her success as the second-place winner of RydeOn! University.

So how is she doing today? We're thrilled to say that Kristie has kept Rydin' On!, and we have both Kristie and her friend and RydeOn! instructor, Malissa, to tell you all about it.

“I feel fantastic!,” Kristie reports, after shedding forty-six pounds and shrinking from a size twelve to a size six. “I actually wake up each day thanking God for one more day on the planet and for a strong body that can change based on how I take care of it.” And change it she has! Kristie tells us she ran the last Chicago marathon in 28:59 – her personal best!

Jeanne and Glenn Keates – Getting Their Rydes On!

KeatesJeanne and Glenn Keates of Saline started coming to RydeOn! for different reasons; Jeanne, who has known Brigid for about two years, was so inspired by Brigid's success with indoor cycling that she decided to take a health and fitness journey of her own.


'I' is for 'Interval'


When I design my indoor cycling classes for RydeOn, I create workouts that alternate times when we're really pushing our limits with time off for recovery immediately after each bout.

Why? This way to exercise is called Interval Training,


Announcing Our 100+ Ryde Club!

Talk about dedication! Christina, the other instructors and I have been pleased to see so many of the same friendly, familiar faces since we first opened in October 2011. It's such a pleasure to work with each and every one of you! However, we've been getting the feeling lately that several members of our RydeOn! family are at the center almost as often as we are – and it turns out we were right:
