THE BENEFITS OF CYCLING

THE BENEFITS OF CYCLING

Compared to outdoor cycling, riding on a stationary bike gives you more control over your speed, resistance, and overall power output. The result is a tough, low-impact workout that strengthens your core, glutes, hamstrings, quads, and more. At Equinox, you get to experience one of the best exercise bikes on the market: Stages.

Here are three benefits you’ll get from cycling at Equinox:

1. The competition will push you.

When you’re led by an expert instructor and surrounded by high performers, you’re able to push your body further than you would on your own. This is especially true in offerings like The Pursuit: Burn and The Pursuit: Build, in which you compete with and against your fellow riders in immersive digital games. Progress is projected on in-studio screens, upping the competitive factor.

To be at the top of the leaderboard, the number you’ll want to increase is your wattage, which combines resistance and speed to determine how hard you’re working.

2. You’ll tune into your body.

Equinox cycling classes help you tune into your body as you try to match your movements with the music in a dark room, which increases focus.

In classes such as Anthem™ and Cycle Beats, the tracks help you keep rhythm with your ride, while allowing you to disengage from metrics. You’re able to lose yourself in the music—directing your attention to your form and breathing instead of whether you’re hitting the right RPMs.

The carefully curated playlists, which instructors create on a class-by-class basis, drive more than performance: They also foster a sense of community, giving you the opportunity to bond with the athletes around you.

3. You’ll become a better outdoor cyclist.

Stationary bikes can prepare you for stronger road rides—if you’re smart about execution. Our experts recommend staying seated as much as possible and keeping your cadence between 70 and 90 RPM, which will make you a more efficient cyclist. Try Studio Cycling, Endurance Ride, and Performance Ride; all three offerings mimic the unpredictability of outdoor terrain by incorporating hills and sprints.
