The indoor-cycling haven boasts a team of motivating trainers dedicated to sculpting participants with challenging, full-body workout classes on the multifitness level RealRyder bikes. Built to imitate bona fide outdoor-cycling apparatuses and effectively easy on your joints, RealRyder bikes steer, turn, and lean with your movements, unlike stationary bikes, which stand around and jealously scoff at sweaty attempts toward betterment.
An indoor-cycling studio, Breakaway Ryder uses stationary RealRyder bicycles, which tilt and lean in an effort to provide a full-body workout. Exercisers hop off of the polished, wooden studio-floor and on to one of several stationary bikes, where their legs furiously pump in group classes. Certified instructors lead them in cross-training sessions, orchestrating tilts and turns that exercise the core as well as the lower body.
With a fleet of two-wheeled cruisers, Shore Riders Bike Rentals equips beach-going guests to explore the boats, shops, and restaurants of Point Pleasant Beach. Its bikes idle, anxiously waiting to be ridden, in the parking lot of a local italian-ice shop and each cycle sports a delectable paint job that brings to mind scoops of strawberry, lime, and derailleur-flavored ice cream. Locks and helmets are included with each rental to ensure safety for both bike and rider.
Exercising can be frustrating if you don't see results. In addition to a slimmer physique, guests at Endure Cycling can see the numerical breakdown of their workout—from the amount of pedal strokes to the number of calories burned to their heart rate throughout their stationary journey. Here, the stationary bicycles use internal sensors to monitor each individual's performance, allowing students to track their progress over time. After saddling up on one of the studio's M3+ indoor cycles, cyclers join a certified instructor on a simulated joyride through a pre-programmed series of climbs, restorative plateaus, and thrilling loop-de-loops while high-energy music helps to keep them motivated. Smart sensors track the RPMs of each bike as well as the rider's heart rate, transmitting data to the room's flat-screen television in real time and storing it for future review. This allows students to keep an eye on their numbers throughout each workout, or go online after class and chart their improvement across multiple sessions to print out and put on their fridge.
From its outpost in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, We Cycle NYC sets cyclists off on two-wheeled adventures throughout the parks, paths, and streets of New York City and its surrounding boroughs. Once customers have settled astride a bike or balanced their favorite cactus on the back of a two-person tandem, they set off for hourly or daily rides, in full control of their pedaled conveyance until the scheduled return time. Each rental comes equipped with one wheel lock and one chain lock to safeguard the bike when it's not in motion, and customers can watch a brief video at the time of rental to ensure proper use.
We Cycle NYC encourages civic exploration underscored by an environmentally conscious mission, augmenting the benefits of sightseeing and exercise with a more viable mode of transportation. The company doesn't just preach green living—it also recycles all the cardboard, metal, and waste it produces and strives to minimize its use of packaging material by encasing all products in delicious cotton candy.
Sara Connolly—who boasts 10 years’ experience working as a personal trainer and fitness coach—founded Sessions Fitness to make accessible routines that meet the needs of any fitness level. Today, her clients keep in shape with personal-training sessions, moms’ and kids’ programs, and a spread of classes in her spinning and yoga studios or on muscle-building The Rack equipment. In the spinning workouts, rows of high-tech stationary bicycles span dark hardwood floors and mirrors line one wall, encouraging spinners to pedal even harder due to the jabberwocky on the other side of the looking glass. Connolly has long been committed to improving children's well-being, which is why her studio sponsors N.E.E.D.S., a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting childhood obesity.
