Cycling at Ride + Reflect

THE BENEFITS

Cycling classes provide a cardiovascular workout that improves strength, stability and coordination while increasing endurance and burning lots of calories.  It's fun too!

 

Cycling is low impact on the lower back and joints, so it's great for people with back and knee problems. Cycling is also great cross-training for any sport involving cardiovascular endurance.

 

WHAT TO WEAR

Plan to wear a moisture wicking top, fitted bottoms and stiff soled clip-in cycling shoes. If you do not have cycle shoes, you can rent a pair for $3. We also sell shoes in all sizes for men and women. 

 

Avoid any shoes with flex and if you don't have cycling shoes, wear stiff soles sneakers.  We have shoes to buy at the studio and your experience will be vastly better if you use proper cycling shoes.  Our cycles are equipped with SPD style clips and conventional cages.

 

Fitted bottoms are key as you don't want excess material getting caught in the cycle's moving parts or causing discomfort. Shorts or fitted capris are best.  

We sell a wide variety of stylish activewear and accessories so that you can always look your best at the studio and around town. 

 

HOW TO PREPARE

Don't work out on an empty stomach, and don't eat just before you start the class.  A piece of fruit is good up to 30 minutes before the class.   Also, please make sure to drink lots of water.  We also offer an assortment of energy bars, fruit and coconut water for purchase.

 

We have changing rooms, locker and fully stocked showers.  If you are planning on using our showers, please bring your own bath towel.

 

We provide towels for your use in the cycling studio.  Please bring your own water bottle to fill with our delicious Brita filtered water.

 

GETTING STARTED

If you are new to indoor cycling, please arrive 10 minutes before your first class so that the instructor can set you up on the bike and orient you.  Or feel free to book an introductory session so we can help you get the most out of your ride.  Call us at 908-221-1010 and we would be happy to make an appointment for you.

 

Take a spot in the middle or back of the studio so you'll be able to see the instructor and other students moving into postures in front of you.  All of our instructors are experienced professionals accustomed to introducing beginners to the discipline.

 

NEW TO CYCLING?

Our classes are accessible to all levels of riders and easily adaptable to all fitness levels. Instructors will encourage you to give it your all, but you and only you are in control of the bike's speed and resistance… exercise comfortably at your own pace.

 

Due to the size restrictions of our bikes, please ensure that all participants are at least 4'9". Any participant under the age of 18 will need a parent/guardian to sign a waiver.

 

Please let your instructor know about any pre-existing medical conditions or health concerns before you commence a class.  You should check with your physician before starting any new exercise regime.
