Indoor Cycling – Know Before You Go
Fit On’s indoor cycling studio has Schwinn bikes with weighted flywheels and adjustable seats. They also come equipped with a gear knob to adjust the intensity of your workout. Come a few minutes early to adjust your bike according to your height. Set the saddle to your hip level to ensure your knees are not bent or locked straight when peddling. And, don’t force yourself, especially if it’s your first time.
What to Wear/Bring:
- Tennis shoes are fine
- Cycling shoes with SPD or LOOK clips work well with our bikes
- Bring a small towel & water – burning 400-900 calories comes with some sweat!
- Wear tighter fitting clothes – no need to buy a cycling-specific outfit
