Keep to the beat

Trendy Hipster Girl with Bike in the City

Exciting news! We are getting RPM consoles in the cycle studio! What does that even mean?

RPM consoles are a great way to monitor your fitness. Cyclists know more than anyone the importance of efficiency. Their goal is to ride in a way that translates every bit of energy into power and speed.

So rather than spinning out of control in class, it is time to pay attention to your cadence, this is the speed at which you pedal. It's measured in RPM or revolutions per minute. This means that one full cycle of the pedal every second translates as a 60 rpm. Simple, no?

Now there is no guessing how much resistance to put on, if you can keep to the RPM as you turn up the dial, you are on the money.

Why you should? Good Vibes Cycling increases calorie burn as well as raising the metabolic rate, which can all help to lose the fat. It lowers your resting heart rate, a high resting heart rate has been linked to cardiovascular disease. It hugely benefits your cardiovascular health. It trains your respiratory muscles as well as improving muscle strength, improving mobility and co-ordination.

You'll look great in short shorts and you'll feel AMAZING afterwards!

Fast Fitness

4 May 2015

Sexy Girl With Blond Hair In Black Bikini Posing Beside A Swimmi

Now that the weather is getting warmer, the question everyone asks us is, how to get fit quickly! The fastest way is to add in Power Plate classes into your routine, they really do work.

With Power Plate training, your muscles contract between 30 and 40 times a second as you work through a range of exercises. It's this constant muscle tensioning that increases muscle strength. Power Plates helps to achieve and sustain weight loss and help reduce unwanted visceral fat, that's the fat in between your organs.

A study of overweight adults found that those using Power Plates, in addition to healthy eating, lost twice as much visceral fat after six months compared to those who followed a healthy diet with cardio and weight training.

The decrease in visceral fat remained at the same level in the Power Plates group after a whole year, while the diet and conventional fitness group returned back to their baseline.

And did we mention that Power Plates can help to get rid of cellulite? It works as a massage for your body as the thousands of muscle contractions  in every class help to increase circulation. Need we say more?

The classes are a speedy 25 minutes and held in the mornings, lunchtimes, evenings as well as the weekends. Step up to the mighty plate!
