Unleash Your Inner Athlete: Join the Best Spin Class in Richmond!

The power of cycling is backed by extensive research. Studies have unveiled a compelling narrative: after just eight weeks of regular cycle workouts, individuals can revel in the remarkable rewards of improved cardiovascular fitness, reduced body fat percentages, and healthier blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Just three weekly cycle workouts can work wonders for your fitness. At Cycle Collective, we make it easy to integrate cycling into your routine and provide inspiration for embarking on this exhilarating journey toward better health and vitality. So, fasten your helmet and prepare to pedal your way to a healthier, fitter you.

The science behind our spin class programming

Science has become an essential partner in crafting workouts that deliver tangible results. For our spin classes, the use of performance-based science has revolutionised how the workouts are designed, ensuring that every minute on the bike counts toward maximising fitness benefits for riders.

Spin class programming has moved beyond the one-size-fits-all approach. Thanks to advancements in exercise physiology, trainers and instructors now have the tools to tailor workouts to individual needs. This means considering factors such as fitness level, age, and genetic predispositions to create a personalised training experience.

By understanding the unique requirements of each rider, our spin classes can be designed to provide an appropriate balance of intensity, duration, and recovery, ensuring that participants achieve their fitness goals effectively and safely.

Tracking and measuring your progress

Cycling offers feel-good endorphins and sweaty workouts, but we also want to quantify your efforts, allowing you to track and measure progress with precision. Our data-driven approach empowers you to set and reach achievable goals, see the impact of your efforts, and make informed decisions to optimise your cycling experience:

Distance and Duration

Measuring the distance and duration of your rides is one of the most basic yet crucial aspects of tracking progress. This data offers valuable insights into your endurance and allows you to set goals for increasing distance and ride duration progressively.

Kilojoules (kJ) and Calories Burned

Kilojoules and calories burned are metrics that provide a clear picture of the energy expenditure during a ride. By tracking these values, you can gauge the intensity of your workouts and manage their calorie balance effectively. Knowing how many kilojoules or calories you’ve burned can be instrumental in setting weight management goals and optimising your nutritional intake to support your cycling performance and overall health.

Average Power and Watts

The power you generate while cycling is a fundamental metric in performance-based science. You can assess your fitness level and track improvements over time by consistently monitoring your power data. This metric is especially valuable for setting performance goals, as it allows you to push yourself to achieve higher wattage outputs during your rides.

Power-to-Weight Ratio

Calculating your power-to-weight ratio, which compares your power output to your body weight, is another performance indicator that can help track progress. A higher power-to-weight ratio indicates improved cycling efficiency and climbing ability.

Heart Rate and Heart Rate Zones

Heart rate monitoring is an essential tool for tracking your cardiovascular progress. You can target different fitness goals by identifying and training within specific heart rate zones, such as improving aerobic endurance, maximising fat burning, or building anaerobic power. Over time, you can observe changes in your heart rate response to the same intensity, signalling improved cardiovascular fitness.

Non-impact sessions for fitness excellence

At Cycle Collective, we have redefined the art of cycling by putting science at the forefront of our programming. Our commitment to delivering outstanding fitness results is underscored by one key principle: all our sessions are non-impact, meticulously designed, and rooted in proven scientific principles. The result? A cycling experience that feels exhilarating and delivers tangible improvements in overall fitness, strength, power, and speed.

Unlike traditional high-impact workouts, our non-impact cycling sessions prioritise your joint health and longevity. By eliminating the jarring impacts associated with activities like running, we provide a safe and sustainable fitness solution suitable for participants of all ages and fitness levels. This allows you to push your limits without the risk of damage to your joints, ensuring you can enjoy cycling for years to come.
