New Spin Studio at Our Pittsburgh Gym
We’d like to introduce you to our brand new, state-of-the-art indoor cycling studio!
The best gym in Pittsburgh wanted to provide members with the most modern equipment and best fitness experience possible, and so we’ve expanded our spin studio to 800 square feet. We’ve added 21 new IC6 stationary bikes, each with colorful displays of real-time data such as heart rate, resistance level, miles traveled, calories burned, and heart rate training zones.
Why is that important to our fitness family?
Cycling is great exercise for every age — and indoor cycling is even better. You can exercise anytime, regardless of the weather! Cycling is an aerobic exercise that offers many benefits, especially with the technology featured to make training more effective and efficient. If you’re not already a cyclist, these reasons may convince you to get pedaling.
3 Reasons to Hop on an Indoor Cycle
Cycling is Low Impact
With all of the great cardio options at our Alexander’s Athletic Club (like treadmills, ellipticals, and rowers), indoor cycling is the most gentle on joints, tendons, and ligaments. Even aerobic group exercise may involve running in place or jumping. By adjusting your speed and resistance levels, cycling can offer an intense cardio workout — but your skeletal system won’t feel the impact. It’s a great option for members recovering from an injury, senior adults seeking a way to keep moving, and gym newbies looking for a good place to start. Already an experienced cyclist? Take it to the max!
It’s Great for Heart Health
Indoor cycling gets your heart pumping to rev your metabolism, improve aerobic capacity, and get oxygen flowing to all of your hardworking muscles. It’s a great weight loss solution as you burn calories, and a great exercise to tone and strengthen glutes, hamstrings, and quads. It’s an all-purpose workout!
Cycling is a Mood-Booster
It’s hard to ignore the positive vibe of a group cycling class! Even solo pedaling activates endorphins, the “feel-good” hormones, to lift your spirits. Hop on one of our bikes and take it for a meditative, mood-boosting spin. Enjoy unlimited cycling classes for free with your gym membership!
