Booyah! The week is winding down, as well as the weekend is just around the corner! Because it was a shorter project week, I’m relieved to see it come to an end. Due to work schedule, I’ve only been able to squeeze in a few workouts this week, so I’m eager to make up for lost time this weekend.
At Fitfire on Monday night, I had a great time doing BODYPUMP and BODYATTACK. Even now, I’m in awe of the studio. Insanity was the only class I taught on Tuesday. Coached for the first time on Wednesday but was unable to work out. Hopefully, I’ll be able to fit in such a TRX strength workout after I get home from Insanity today!
P.S. As a side note, I’m preparing to begin GRIT training next weekend, which promises to be yet another epic exercise experience.
Even though it feels such as this month has indeed been going on forever, it hasn’t come to an end yet, so there’s still time to discuss the benefits of cardio exercise. The subject of discussion today is indoor cycling!
For at least 25 years, indoor cycling has become one of the most popular group exercise formats. High-intensity interval training on a stationary bike is the focus of these classes. “Spinning” is a popular term for this low-impact cardio workout, which is also known as a recumbent as well as upright bike in your gym’s cardio room. Cycling is a great option for people who are unable to participate in high-intensity cardio classes because it provides the intensity as well as calorie burn without the joint jarring.
If you’re a current or aspiring group exercise instructor, I strongly recommend pursuing an indoor cycling certification. It’s a great way to get your feet wet with in world of group fitness instruction, and the high demand for instructors means there are always openings.
A few of my favourite cycling posts from the LGRS era are included here..

So, you’ve decided to give an indoor cycling workout a try. If you don’t have access to an indoor bike at ones gym or home, this workout could be done on any type of stationary bike. The circuit is designed to be repeated, and each interval is repeated. For your own safety, always include a simple warm-up and cool-down.
Cadence is another name for rotations per minute, or RPM. The number of times one leg completes a full circle in thirty seconds can be used to figure out your RPM if your bike does not have a display for it. To determine your rotations per minute, multiply that number by two.
