You’ll build lean muscle, train your body to burn fat and like a typical HIIT workout, you’ll burn calories for hours after your workout.
New to indoor cycling classes? You don’t need to be a seasoned cyclist to take the class but you do need some level of fitness for SPRINT. Take it easy during your first few sessions to get a feel for what it’s about. If you’re finding things tough it’s okay to slow down, reduce the load or sit up and rest.
