YMCA Cycle Class

YMCA Cycle Fit gets your legs pumping with a high-powered indoor bike class set to energetic music. Working those major muscles in your legs also strengthens your most important muscle: your heart.

A YMCA Cycle Fit Instructor will take you through a stimulating aerobic and anaerobic workout, simulating hills and valleys or timed athletic drills in the indoor cycling class. You determine the intensity of the workout by adjusting your own bike, making this a suitable workout for you as an intermediate to advanced exerciser.

There are three levels of classes:

Gentle Cycle Fit: A cardiovascular class on indoor stationary bikes and is a great option for those who are new to cycling or have joint problems. The instructor uses music and cycling techniques to guide participants through a variety of flat roads, hills, interval drills and more, while allowing participants to stay seated on the bike.

Cycle Fit: Cycle Fit is a cardiovascular fitness class held on indoor stationary bikes. Each member can control his or her own intensity. The instructor uses music and instructional cycling techniques to guide participants through all types of terrain: flat roads, hills, rough trails, interval drills and more.

Advanced Cycle Fit: A high intensity cardiovascular workout on indoor stationary bikes for experienced Cycle Fit participants or outdoor cyclists. This class is intended to develop cardiovascular endurance over a longer class length, and includes more advanced drills.

 

*Members please arrive at least 5 minutes early to make bike adjustments. Injury prevention and a proper workout are dependent upon proper fitting of the bike. Be sure shoelaces are tucked into shoes and wear shorts or pants that are tight at the ankle to prevent loose items getting caught in the bike.
