Spinning classes include the standard RevRide60 class, which is set to fast-paced beats to help motivate riders to push through steep inclines and fast flats. They also include the 45-minute RevSunrise45 class, which helps kick-start the day, and the RevRideNoon45, which boosts energy during lunch breaks.
Ride Revolution's method for blasting calories and chiseling muscles into the body involves shocking the system and keeping muscles guessing at what level of strenuousness is coming next. Cycling-class participants have to push through terrain that varies from steep inclines to flat sprints, motivated only by the instructor's encouragement, the class's upbeat music, and the fistfuls of pennies promised upon completion.
In the dark, cool cycling room, exercisers atop top-of-the-line Schwinn bikes keep their legs pumping in a variety of classes, including a 45-minute midday ride, a 60-minute standard cycle session, and even a charity ride. Unlike traditional gyms, which can't focus all their energy on cycling, Ride Revolution is a cycling-only studio, which means it features such amenities as stadium-style seating, atmospheric lighting, and the cutting-edge Performance IQ heart-rate-monitoring system.
