Take cardio fitness to the next level by biking along to the rhythm of the music. Adjustable resistance makes this class perfect for all fitness levels.

This rhythm based cycle class would be a 45 minute ride along to the beat of the music. Differing from a power based cycle class, participants' cadence would match the tempo of the music as intensity levels shift from one song to the next. Unlike the traditional cycle class currently taught at RecWell, this class could feature an upper body workout utilizing the different positioning and movements a cycle bike offers.
