When I go to the gym, I admit I probably am too light hearted about it. I’ll hop on a treadmill/eliptical/bike machine, & then hop off as soon as I get tired or bored. I am much more of a yoga girl, & I do know I much need to concentrate on other activities. So when I heard about the upbeat atmosphere at Cyclebar Northville, I had to try it out.
I could tell this was not going to be just an ordinary day on a bike at my gym. Right away, I was fitted with biking shoes & given a water bottle filled with cool water. I really wasn’t sure the purpose of either, but I soon discovered the needs!
As a short girl, I was glad to see the bikes were easily adjustable & comfortable. The important part of the riding shoes is that they lock your feet onto the pedals during the ride. Early in our 50 minute ride, I caught myself with my pedals spinning faster than my tired legs & I easily see that I could have hurt myself if my feet & legs had been lose.
Our instructor David was enthusiastic & always careful to encourage us to keep stretching ourselves but being careful to not over-do it. I also was glad that he shared with us certain benchmarks that we should aim for. The songs were the perfect compliment to pace & a fun spirit, & I even received an email after the class filled with my statistics of the class & the soundtrack of songs.
On our way out, we were treated to some snacks from Fresh N Healthy in Westland.
