Indoor cycling classes can seem intimidating at first, but there’s a reason why once your start, you can’t stop. Just ask our members! Long time StarCycle member Amy C calls StarCycle ‘her sweaty obsession’. Once you get into the saddle for your first class, you’ll very quickly find yourself prioritizing your schedule to make sure you can always get to your bike at least three times a week. Don’t believe us? We polled our members for five reasons why our signature indoor cycling classes will win you over.
- The Health Benefits
There’s nothing quite like indoor cycling class to give you that amazing workout you’re always looking for. Bonus! StarCycle takes it up a notch my incorporating total-body elements into every single class. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends that adults get 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise five times a week (or 20 minutes of vigorous cardio three days a week) at the very least. Our cardiovascular workout will strengthen your heart, tone your entire body, and you won’t have to deal with the physical toll of a high-impact workout. It’s seriously one of the best possible things you can do for your body and overall health. And why not have fun while doing it? At StarCycle, we make every class a dance party on a bike.
- The Stress Relief
If you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed, heading to one of our studios and getting on the bike is one of the smartest decisions you can make. At StarCycle we create an environment that allows you to leave your mental baggage at the door and cycle your worries away – one beat at a time. And of course, because cycling workouts are on the intense side, you’ll produce more endorphins leaving you feeling stronger and shining brighter the rest of your day.
- The Killer Music
For those who love to get lost in the music and find that moving to a beat is therapeutic, there’s no better way to workout than an indoor cycling class at StarCycle. Music is a fantastic motivator during exercise. Research has found that athletes tend to work out harder when they listen to music that has a faster tempo. The beat of the music can help you reset and allow you to stay driven during class, thus ensuring you get the best workout possible.
- The Team Mentality
Although some people enjoy an independent workout, there’s no denying that working out in a supportive group can push you to do your best. All that synergistic energy can have a positive impact on your overall experience. It turns what could be a boring workout class into a super charged 45-minute ride full of twists and turns. It turns the concept of ordinary exercise on its head. Our community is incredible and our team of instructors are there to cheer you on every step of the way.
- The Party
For some people, thinking of a workout as “fun” might seem like a stretch. But even those who haven’t particularly enjoyed exercise in the past will find there’s something special StarCycle. The variety of the moves, our community, and the energetic focus will allow you to appreciate exercise in a whole new way. We make exercise fun! Once you start attending classes at our bike studios in Portland (and beyond), you may soon find yourself hooked on cycling. It’s that fun.
