Cycling is a complex movement form that uses many different muscles in the legs, core and the hips, all of which must be synchronized to create a strong, effective and powerful pedal stroke.
It’s a beautiful thing, and it benefits from good position, concentration and focus not unlike yoga or barre work. That concentration creates a quiet and calm mind, especially when the movement is synchronized to the beat of the music. And like yoga or barre, it’s a practice that we can work on for a lifetime.
The current trend in ‘spinning’ is a club-like party on the bike with electronic dance music so loud that your ears are ringing after class. The classes are ‘taught’ by untrained actors and models and involve all kinds of dangerous upper body moves and contortions which add nothing to the workout and, in fact, take away from the cycling workout since you can’t be pedaling hard if you are busy swinging around and dancing. Instructors prance around the room screaming obscenities and banging on drums.
At Revocycle we are bringing professionalism back to indoor cycling. Just like in barre or yoga businesses, we hire instructors who are highly experienced and knowledgeable, and who actually know and love the cycling movement. And just like in barre or yoga, we practice excellent form and position in order to maximize your workout and reduce the risk for injury. We tune into our bodies in a quieting way in order to reach the ‘flow state’ where we are working hard but experiencing profound peacefulness.
Revocycle is a new breed of indoor cycling studio that uses the authentic cycling movement and position to give you a vastly safer and more effective workout than any dance party spinning studio. This, mark our words, will be the next ‘thing’ in indoor cycling.
Come join us while we still have room in classes!
