photo-16Lately, cycling has been my cardio workout of choice outside of the gym.  I love cycling classes because they are an intense workout, and I feel full of energy afterwards.  It sounds counterintuitive, but it is true!  Gotta love the endorphins you get after a sweaty, challenging class!  I especially love doing a cycling class in the morning or at noon because I feel ready to tackle the rest of my day after I am done.

Beyond Pedaling had been on my list of studios to try for a while, and I was excited to finally “Go Beyond”.  So, last week I signed up for the Tuesday 9:30am class with Adria for my intro to Beyond!  First off, I loved the design of the studio and the sleek Keiser bikes.  The way that the studio was lit, and the platform the instructor teaches from reminded me of being at a club listening to live music.  Kind of like listening to a rockstar play for an audience, instead of taking an exercise class!  Fitting…since Adria pretty much is a rockstar instructor!  I loved how she led the class, full of energy and motivation.  Her playlist was awesome, it really pushed me along during class.  I liked that she kept us aware of our posture and body alignment throughout the class.  Sometimes I tend to stiffen up my upper body too much during cycling, but her cues to move around a bit and engage the trunk helped me keep it loose. The class was a fun mix of sprints and climbs, and included a short segment of arm/upper body movements with light dumbbells. Overall, my first experience at Beyond Pedaling was great!  I got the energy boost I needed and enjoyed the class.  Looking forward to returning soon…
