A 99-year-old great-grandmother trades her cane for a unicycle and rolls smoothly across the floor of a vibrantly colored studio. Made possible by an innovative uni-trainer device, similar feats occur regularly during group unicycle lessons held at Just One Wheel's 5,200-square-foot facility. Cofounder Adam Cohen turned to one-wheeled cycling to stay active after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease, then began teaching the entertaining sport of unicycling to any student over the age of 4. During each lesson, groups of up to 12 helmeted students spend 60 minutes laughing, strengthening cores, and ducking prospect scouts from street-performance leagues. Just One Wheel also offers unicycling schools and camps, birthday parties, and miscellaneous open-play sessions.
"Stationary bike" is a misnomer when it comes to the RealRyder cycles at CoreRyder. True, they won't propel you across the gym like a bodybuilder would if you insulted his tan, but they tilt and lean like a real bike on the road. This movement engages the core, strengthening the gut as legs burn off plentiful calories through cardio.
