Expert Advice

Are you getting tired of the same old gym routine? Weights followed by treadmill, dumbbells, vice versa? It may finally be time to try a different form of exercise this year at Rush Cycle.

Indoor cycling is quickly becoming a mega-popular workout. While you might be writing off a cycling class as way too intense or high-energy for you, they aren’t as intimidating as you might think. Cycling is a great workout within a fun and positive environment! As an added bonus, you’ll feel like you’ve gotten more of a workout from one cycling class than the two hours you usually spend at the gym.

Here are the top seven reasons to add cycling to your workout routine:
 

1. It’s more than just cycling!

A cycling class is way more than simply riding a bike for up to 60 minutes. It’s an incredibly energetic and fun environment that draws in a diverse community of individuals. Classes vary with the type of music played from hip-hop to house music, girl power, and more. You’ll feel like you’re out at your favorite club, but instead, you’re pushing your limits on the bike. Rush Cycle provides a variety of instructors, all with different styles, so you can feel comfortable in taking the class that’s right for you. The instructors are also incredibly supportive of you and your goals, whatever they may be!
 

2. You burn a TON of calories.

Cycling is one of the most efficient cardio workouts. From peddling the bikes at increasing speeds to inclining, you’ll definitely break a sweat. The instructors at Rush Cycle really keep you motivated to pedal all the way to the finish line. You’ll leave class feeling positive, accomplished, and motivated to come back for more.

3. You can make friends and find a community.

A great reason to sign up for cycling classes at Rush Cycle is for its supportive and friendly community. Rush Cycle’s members are likeminded and encouraging of one another’s fitness goals. They also have common interests, such as classes, instructors, workout gear, and more. This community is a great way to stay accountable for coming back to class. Cyclists often form relationships with one another, getting food together after class or planning out which classes to take together. The instructors, cycling staff, and other members of Rush Cycle are all great sources for staying committed to your routine and fitness goals. No matter where you may travel or move, you can feel peace of mind about your new cycling routine with Rush Cycle’s various locations throughout the country. 
 

4. It's a full-body workout.

You may think cycling only applies to your legs or glute muscles, but that is not the case. Cycling is a workout that engages every part of the body. During an indoor cycling class, your core will be constantly engaged for the entirety of the workout. You won’t feel the need to partake in an additional “leg day” or “arms day” since your entire body is thoroughly worked.

5. It helps reduce stress and anxiety.

Exercising helps reduce anxiety naturally through the release of endorphins. Cycling produces a natural high, similar to running. Most cyclists continue going to classes because of the increase in overall mood afterward. If you’re looking to reduce your stress and anxiety levels in a fun environment, Rush Cycle could be your answer!  
 

6. You can easily track your progress.

Whatever your reason for working out may be, it’s always a good idea to track your fitness goals. Through Rush Stats, you can track your progress, including calories burned and total distance. Rush Stats lets you see how far you’ve come since your first cycling class and continue to keep yourself motivated. 
 

7. It's a great way to try something new!

Indoor cycling is a fantastic way to maintain fitness goals, meet new people, increase positive energy, and try a new activity. We all have various distractions in our lives, and adding a fun, healthy exercise to your routine, such as indoor cycling, can provide dedication and enjoyment. Everybody needs something to get them through the day, and indoor cycling at Rush Cycle is a wonderful activity to be excited for.

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.

This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.

Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.

Encourage your favorite studio to sign up for the event

If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help pagewhere they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.  

Other ways to help

Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.

This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
