This time, I got to check out the Cycle 50 class at the Rec. You can register for this vinyasa and slow-flow fusion through the CSU Rec App or on our website.
Before I tell you what I thought, let me give a better description of what you will be getting into:
“An upbeat 50 minute cycling workout to fun beats that incorporates climbing, sprinting and so much more! Everyone is welcome here no matter what their background in cycling is.”
Jess was the instructor for my class and was very helpful in getting set up to start. I have never been to a cycling class before and did not know what to expect!
After everyone got their bike situated, Jess promptly started the class and turned up the energizing music we would be biking along to.
Honestly, this class gave me a real run for my money! It is high-intensity with frequent intervals of varying fast-paced movements such as climbing and sprinting.
Throughout the class, Jess encouraged us to add resistance to the bike in order to challenge ourselves. Still, I was able to take it at my own pace and never felt pressured to keep going if I felt like I needed a break. At the end, the instructor made sure that we stretched before moving on with our day.
I would highly recommend this class if you are someone who enjoys HIIT or other generally fast-paced workouts. This time I took a 50-minute class. Additionally, there are options for 30, 45, or 60-minute classes as well.
