As a certified spinning centre, Energia Athletics employs only highly trained instructors to guide riders through each of the program’s indoor-cycling workouts. Calories get torched in 45-minute sessions that strengthen legs and fortify the core as exercisers of all stripes pedal to the beat of fast-paced tunes. Each bike’s dash features a resistance knob that adds weight to simulate uphill climbs, releases to simulate flat roads, and, when tickled, shakes to simulate biking through an earthquake. Throughout the ride, instructors demonstrate the proper form for each riding position and advise students when to add or subtract resistance. Energia’s instructors also motivate cyclists with positive encouragement, unlike instructors in traditional spin sessions, who elicit faster cadences by releasing wild grizzlies into their classrooms. Classes take place seven days a week amid a modern, exposed-brick studio lined with the program’s trademarked Spinner bikes.
With equal focus devoted to CrossFit, running, yoga, spinning, and kettlebell workouts, Energia lives up to its philosophy that "cross-training is the best way to reach maximum performance and the highest level of fitness." And the business didn't just borrow this philosophy from the philosophy library. Both of Energia's founders are living examples of the benefits of varied training. Lea Amaral has run competitively since her late teens and later discovered spinning, yoga, and kettlebell workouts. Jon Dunnill walked a similar fitness path, joining a running group and competing in races before shaking up his routine with strengthening kettlebells and calorie-torching spinning. At Energia, the duo introduces their members to the healthy, full-body challenges presented by each discipline, helping clients tone their muscles, boost their endurance, and shed unwanted pounds.
