4 Benefits of Indoor Cycling

Are you looking to torch calories but don’t have a lot of time? Did you know at OTC you can burn up to 600 calories in just a 45 minute long class? The best part, you don’t have to be an experienced cyclist to do so. We welcome all fitness levels to our classes and our instructors are pumped to show you a great time and get a great sweat on while you do so. If you are still on the fence, keep reading to find out more of the benefits of indoor cycling.

Reason #1: We are a Community

Many people find their happy place during a workout class because you are surrounded by others that are working on themselves too. At OTC, you not only are surrounded by friends throughout the class, the party doesn’t stop when it is over. Our clients are going to hang out and catch up over a smoothie bowl from our in-studio Smoothie Bar. We know you won’t do a lot of talking during class but after class, you are free to hang out!

Reason #2: Improve your Cardio

Just like any fitness class, every one of our instructors has their own flare and style they put on a class. Some love sprints on the bike while others are super fans of hills. As you get to know our instructors, we encourage you to change it up as the constant variation of workouts will help improve your cardiovascular system even faster. Trust us, your heart will be racing as you surge up that hill with your bike set to heavy but your body will thank you when it is all over!

Reason #3: Go at your Own Pace

Although our instructors are there to motivate and push you to be your very best, they cannot control the gear to which you set your bike. If you are new to cycling, set that gear a little lower as you start to learn the movements. Do not get discouraged when you see someone on the screen that finishes the class with a 100 more calories burned than you. Everyone is on their own fitness journey! You will get there and our instructors are going to help you.

Reason #4: Strengthen your Core

 It is critical you engage your core throughout the class; otherwise, you run the risk of hurting your lower back as you sit in a bent over position. Our instructors will cue reminders to the class about posture and technique. Correct posture is essential to work the correct muscle groups.

Indoor cycling has a lot of benefits. If you are looking for a way to get your sweat on, your heart pumping and enjoy some time with friends, you are not going to want to miss checking out OTC. Sign up now to be one of the first riders in the studio.


Bottom line: attending an indoor cycling class has many benefits that will help you feeling strong, engaged, and motivated through the rest of your day!
