If it’s your first time at an Indoor Cycling class, it can be a bit daunting. You worry about what everyone else will think, will you cope, am I fit enough, will it hurt, what do I need to bring along? Well, here are a few things you may find helpful.
First of all, everyone will be friendly. We’ve all been there and all felt exactly the same. We are a friendly bunch and will only ever try to encourage you. As for coping, yes you will although the first time you come along you will find it takes a bit of getting used to. Seems a lot of things to take in. Getting used to the bike, hills, flats, hovers, sprints and doing all that to music!! On top of that, after your first session, your bum and legs WILL ache and if Carlsberg made the best cycle shorts in the world it wouldn’t help. But, it does get better and after two or three classes it will all fall into place so stick with it. At that point the buzz kicks in, you see improvement and then you look forward to your sessions.
Try and pick a specific beginners class to start with and although we realise this isn’t always convenient remember, beginners are more than welcome at any of our classes. Also, good classes have good instructors with well planned sessions using various music genres. This all helps to create a great atmosphere and make you want to come back. After all, it’s got to be enjoyable.
The only things you need to bring along with you are, Shorts/Leggings (worth investing in cycle shorts at a later date), Tee shirt/Vest, Trainers, Towel and a drink. Anything else you want to know, just ask as we are more than willing to help.
