Most spin classes are so loud that studios hand out earplugs. Most of the time you can barely hear the instructor over the noise.
Loudness is not equal to good sound. Hearing your instructor is not a bad thing.
In the laboratory, scientists who study the stress response subject test animals to loud distorted sound and….voila, a huge stress response to study! A common form of torture involves subjecting prisoners to loud sound.
And that doesn’t even begin to address the inner ear damage done! Read this article Hearing Damage In Spin Class Tinnitus is no joke!
At Revocycle we value our hearing and ALSO love good music and good sound. And we want to be heard in class. We have a decibel meter and know how to use it!
Our sound system is easily the best on the West Coast. We use extremely high quality speakers that put out beautiful, undistorted music. Because our system is so good, we don’t have to play it nearly as loud to get that beautiful feeling of being enveloped in the music. And our instructors can be easily heard over the music so you aren’t wondering what’s going on.
Our founder is a serious about audio and hand-picked our speakers-we were the first in the nation to install them-and personally placed them in the room for the best sound. The difference is that you don’t get a stress response in our classes and instead leave feeling rejuvenated and alive.
