Group indoor cycling classes have become an exercise favorite over the past decade. Many have flocked to instructor-led spin classes as a way to shed off the stress of everyday life (while getting a kick-butt workout.)
For Prague residents looking to break a sweat, Zoom Cycle opened a new spinning center in Prague 8 on May 8.
The new spin center, located at Rohanské nábřeží 693/10, boasts 24 brand new Schwinn bikes, energetic instructors, a fully air-conditioned cycling room, and full locker room amenities. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the studio is using only 8 bikes per class spaced 2 meters apart. Weekend sessions are held outside weather permitting.
Zoom Cycle is a 45 to 60-minute intense cardio and strength cycling training. The training will, of course, give you a workout physically– cycling is known to build cardiovascular endurance, strengthen leg and core muscles, boost your metabolism, and burn calories. But Zoom Cycle also places emphasis on the stress-relief experience of the workout. Cardio exercise releases endorphins, so cycling classes are a great way to relieve stress and boost your mood.
Walking into a Zoom Cycle class, you will notice the dimmed lights and pulsing music in the cycling room. This environment was designed to create a personal, introspective element to your workout. Cyclers can escape from the stresses of the outside world in.
“The darkness in the studio gives you a sense of privacy and your only rival is your mind,” Zoom Cycle’s website explains. “Music helps you distract your thoughts. The coach motivates you to overcome your own borders.”
The new studio will offer spinning instructor-led classes in Czech and English, private spinning studio rental for team building or group sessions, and individual rentals. The studio is also offering weight loss consultations with certified dietitians.
Zoom Cycle offers workout classes six days a week, with a special double class (two 60 minute sessions) held on Saturday mornings. To find out more about class times and to reserve a bike, visit Zoom Cycle’s website.
Zoom Cycle offers also a discount code SUMMER20 for whom apply on the website to get 20% off any packages as well as an introductory price of 250 CZK for people visiting the studio for the first time.
