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!



The Benefits of Smaller Spinning Studios


-Brigid Lossing

Like most of us, I always love it when I come across articles by other experts in my field who validate what I already know to be true. This happy experience occurred for me most recently while reading the May 10, 2013 Spinning Instructor News® – in particular, the article “Why Smaller Spinning® Studios Can Offer a Big Advantage.”

It's true that at least some people enjoy the anonymity and variety offered by larger “big box” gyms and health clubs – if that weren't the case, the LA Fitness and the like would be in deep trouble! That said, the News article highlights the many advantages of smaller, specialized studios that I experienced first-hand.

What are those advantages? Anyone who has done comparison shopping knows that RydeOn! offers a highly individualized class experience for a fraction of the cost of a personal trainer. In fact, I challenge anyone to find a better deal than our yearly RydeOn! University and other class offerings.

In addition, though, the News article explains something I've seen first-hand since RydeOn! opened – people do better, and they stay more committed, to smaller classes where they get to know other clients and instructors alike. To put it another way, the “family” that peddles together truly does stay together!

Finally, smaller studios like RydeOn! are thriving, according to the article and my own experience, because we listen to our clients. We constantly ask for your feedback on everything from the effectiveness of our sound system to the music you think would be most motivating. After all, wouldn't want to go to exercise a class where I didn't get a say in how the class develops – and I don't expect you to do so, either.

If you haven't experienced the benefits of our small, community-oriented studio yet, I encourage you to sign up for an indoor cycling class (or two!) today. If you have and you have any ideas for areas where we can improve, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
