Whereas cycling gets you from point A to point B with minimal effort, stationary cycling makes muscles large enough to occupy both points at the same time. Sculpt convenient physiques with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three classes at Revolutions Cycling Studio in Eagle Rock (a $54 value).
Inside the airy cycle-centric studio, Revolutions’ team of experienced instructors motivates students of all ability levels during spin classes available seven days a week. First-time riders should arrive 15 minutes early to learn how to properly saddle the sleek Schwinn stationary stallions before beginning 30- to 60-minute sweat sessions. As energizing music flows through speakers to encourage fast-paced pedaling, students can bask in the views of lush sycamore trees provided by the space's wall-to-wall windows. A low-impact exercise, cycling can burn up to hundreds of calories per class while being much gentler on the joints than running with buckets of rocks over other, larger buckets of rocks.
