Bikers can grunt and sweat, pedalling 25 kilometres in a single session, they’ll never travel so much as an inch beyond Legacy Indoor Cycling Studio’s 2,000-square-foot space. Instead, Schwinn-certified instructors coach them along imagined paper routes, varying the intensity of hills and curves via the advanced settings on Schwinn Evolution bikes. In each class, up to 30 stationary steeds whir in place, their spokes’ constant hum drowned out by the teachers’ commands and the high-energy music blaring from a Bose stereo system.
Beyond spinning sessions, the personal trainers also bend bodies in yoga classes and incinerate calories with boot-camp-style circuit training, which incorporates cycling. With almost 30 total classes a week, the studio accommodates virtually any schedule, allowing students to fit in a workout between work and daily appointments to oil their bionic legs.
