13 Reasons to exercise in Winter - Reason 1

Immune System - Moderate exercise keeps the immune system strong, a fundamental benefit in the winter when there are so many germs flying around. In fact, studies have shown that exercising a few times a week can reduce the number of colds you get every year which means less of that frightful ‘red-nose’ look that so many of us suffer from in the winter months.

Why Spinning is good for Runners

16 February 2013


For the average runner spinning doesn't just make you stronger, it makes you faster too. It benefits the development of your leg muscles which helps to stabilise the knee joints and encourage faster recovery of the legs after running, while the continuous cardiovascular workout helps to improve your overall fitness level helping you to get faster on your runs.

It's actually the relationship between cadence and the velocity of hip rotation in degrees per second that really provides the link up between running and cycling. An individual pedalling at a cadence of 90 rpm (revolutions per minute) is generally rotating their hips at a velocity of around 220 degrees per second. This is equivalent to a 6.45 per mile running pace, while a cadence of 70 rpm would be equivalent to around an 8 minute mile. This translates to running as it teaches our bodies how to react and move faster, so literally getting your legs moving fast on a bike will help you to move them faster on the ground.

Runners! What are you waiting for? Book that Spincycle class now.

Don't forget to book into the 2 hour Yoga for Runners and Cyclists Workshop on the 23rd March, no yoga experience necessary. Tight hamstrings welcome!
