Why Flywheel Is Perfect For Every Fitness Level

By December 14, 2018 No Comments

Building a healthier lifestyle requires two key components: the support of those around you and the environment to focus on yourself. At Flywheel, we aim to provide both in our studios, with a welcoming community that will make you a part of the Fly Fam from your very first workout. Our cycling classes will motivate you at every step of your fitness journey—whether it’s helping you hit your stride with the perfect playlist or having you covered with complimentary cycling shoes—all you have to do is clip in and start riding.

Why Flywheel Is for All Fitness & Experience Levels

  1. Customizable Challenges

You don’t need to be a seasoned cycler to thrive at Flywheel; our classes are designed to fit your specific fitness level through the all-important resistance knob—or Torq knob, as we call it. This part of the bike is how you alter how much resistance you feel as you pedal—turning the knob right makes it tougher to pedal, and turning it left makes it easier.

Your instructor will help set the pace and suggest how to set your resistance level based on the type of ride and how it varies by interval. Ultimately, you are in control of your ride and can modify your pace and resistance based on your skill level. If you need a break, simply slow your pace or lighten your resistance. Our cycling classes were expertly designed to be a great workout for you, precisely as you are, and the technique, skill, and improvement will come with time.

  1. Low-Impact Cardio

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) can help you get in excellent shape, but opting for running or HIIT circuits can wreak havoc on your joints. A Flywheel ride has the same heart-pounding, muscle-strengthening benefits without the discomfort of a high-impact sport. Cycling can also help fight joint pain by working the muscles and tendons around your knees, hips, and ankles to build stability and strength around these sensitive areas.

  1. Community, Coaching, and Performance Metrics

The Flywheel experience is genuine—whether it’s your first time or five-hundredth, we’ll support you every step of the way. We have over a half a million riders of all fitness levels around the country, and the community you’ll find in your local studio creates a fun, encouraging environment for you to unplug and focus on your fitness. While our cycling classes will get you started, it is our Flywheel family—the Fly Fam—that will keep you coming back.

Our world-class instructors make it their mission to inspire you at every step of the ride. Whether they’re helping you set up your bike beforehand or guiding the class through that tough climb, the fitness pros you’ll find in our studios will offer impactful coaching to optimize your ride experience based on your fitness needs.

Our cycling classes will help you track your performance metrics so you can monitor your progress over time. These stats are private and intended to help you set specific target goals. For an even bigger push to reach your personal bests, our rides feature races and a stadium leaderboard—the TorqBoard—to see how you rank in your studio’s community. Participation is optional!

For first-time riders, we recommend our Method class as an introduction to our metrics-based HIIT rides. And the best part? Your first ride is on us. To join the FLY Fam with a free class, sign up today.  See you in the studio!
