If you are looking to take part in some good old fashion group exercise then look no further than studio cycling. There are lots of benefits of studio cycling which I am going to cover in this article so if you have not tried a class before after reading this I hope you will be tempted to give it a go.
Benefits of Studio Cycling
If jumping around and running plays havoc with your knees and hips then I would definitely give studio cycling a whirl as there are no high impact movements so it’s much kinder on the joints.
A forty-minute studio cycling class is over half the recommended amount of weekly aerobic exercise. Manage two forty-minute classes a week and you half your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Most group exercise is enjoyable because of the social element but studio cycling classes are extremely sociable. You are sat next to at least two people that are in high-fiving distance the whole time. Class participants often hang around at the end for a chat or even go for a coffee together.
When I first started teaching studio cycling I went from attending no classes to teaching five classes a week overnight. I lost 5 kg in just one month. The massive calorie expenditure during the class and after whilst I recovered resulted in a big calorie deficit which meant the fat melted off me.
When I was teaching a lot of studio cycling a friend of mine asked me to ride the ‘London to Brighton Bike Race’ and also suggested we start from Clapham. I didn’t even own a bike so had to borrow one. By the time we finished the race and had ridden home, I had cycled 87 miles but I felt good and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although I never cycled I was teaching plenty of studio cycling classes which appeared to prep me for it brilliantly 🤟
