New Intro to Cycle Classes

28Aug2017

Would like to get to know cycle, but not sure where to begin? We've got new Spin and RPM sessions on Thursdays. Come and give it a try.

Intro to Cycle classes are commencing on Thursdays from 31 August
Would you love to improve your cardio fitness? Are you too scared to step foot inside the Cycle studio? Why not try one of our Thursday sessions designed and modified for new participants?

Our friendly instructors will show you everything, from how to set up your bike, correct positioning when riding and how to use the Body bike app to track your rides and your journey of improvement throughout the 10 week program. You are always in control of the intensity and speed of your ride, it is not a competition, merely an opportunity to try something new.

This is a great opportunity to take up a new challenge, you will be surprised how quickly you improve.
