InMotion's indoor cycling studio hums with upbeat energy, energizing music, and the low churn of state-of-the-art stationary cycles. The certified instructors and cyclists, which include former swimmers and current runners, draw on their athletic strengths to lead students through challenging spinning workouts. A unique playlist of motivating and up-tempo music powers students through intervals and sprints, as digital landscapes play across two screens, giving riders the sense that they're cycling down a country road or through a black-and-white zombie apocalypse. Each FreeMotion bike's cadence, power, and heart-rate monitor keeps track of rider progress and stats, all of which can be downloaded onto a USB drive and analyzed at home.
