HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST HEATED CYCLING CLASS?
Due to the increase in detoxification and extended sweating, we advise all our riders to prepare for class at our studio by hydrating before your scheduled class. In fact, we suggest you plan on consuming most of your water intake long before you are scheduled to come in. We also always remind riders to continue hydrating after class as well.
Also, wear light and breathable clothing (i.e. cycling shorts, tank top, etc).
Hydration is key!
How much water should I be drinking?
On our blog we have a post dedicated to calculating how much water intake is necessary based on weight and height and the number of hours you are working out. to calculate how much water you should be drinking.
I am intimidated by heated cycling. What if I can't handle IT?
We hear this a lot. We understand this intimidates many new riders, but assure you it is not as bad as it sounds. The vast majority of our 1st timers make it through class like champs. Furthermore, all of our instructors are highly trained and prepared to guide our riders through class, acclimating to the heat steadily. We also always encourage new riders to go at their own pace.
What do I need to bring with me on my first visit and what time should I arrive?
Bring water! We provide free towel service and also sell water, should you forget to bring your own. We also offer free shoe rentals on your first visit. Thereafter, it’s $3 per rental. We do not offer toe cages for sneakers. Our studio is a strictly “cycling shoe” studio. Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit. You will need to fill out our studio waiver and the instructor will need that extra time before class to help you with your bike set up. Please note, we do not allow new riders to enter class late as proper bike set up is crucial and must be performed prior to class start time.
What kind of pedals do you have?
All of our bikes have double sided pedals that accommodate both LOOK and SPD cleats
