Taking a Cycle 360 workout class is different from any other workout platform you’ll ever experience! Unique to all other available exercise equipment on the market today, the Cycle 360 provides an upper body strength workout, lower body conditioning, core stability and excellent cardiovascular conditioning – all in one workout!
The non-weight bearing frame equates to balance and stability, which means you can achieve the ultimate workout, involving sprinting, strength, upper and lower body benefits – all without compromising the body. For anyone with soft-tissue or spinal injuries who are frustrated by the lack of exercise options, you can still get a full-body, completely effective workout on the Cycle 360. Classes incorporate high intensity interval training (HIIT), which is scientifically proven to be the most effective way to burn fat. HIIT maximizes your workout by doing short periods of high intensity work, followed by a less intense recovery period. A typical Cycle 360 class can help burn an average of 500-700 calories, and more significantly, causes the body to continue burning calories long after the workout. In comparison to continuous, lower intensity activity, sprint intervals create a significantly greater increase in excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) and the added calories that accompany the increase in metabolism. This increased metabolic rate associated with EPOC is the primary contributing factor to the success of HIIT for weight loss. Mixed with other modalities like weight training, kettlebell work and TRX, Cycle 360 classes offer a much more effective workout in the shortest amount of time than any other cardio training.
No other means of exercise can compare to the benefits of a Cycle 360 class. With the torso elongated and the hips aligned, the energy of the workout is completely driven from the core, resulting in stronger abdominal and gluteal muscles, along with upper body strength benefits and most of all – extreme calorie burn! These benefits simply cannot be achieved on a traditional treadmill, stair climber, stationary bicycle or elliptical trainer.
The Cycle 360 requires recruitment of total body musculature, which generates a much higher cardiovascular demand. Because the intensity is higher, aerobic and anaerobic endurance is increased, speeding up metabolism and increasing the after-burn affect. More calories are burned during the workout, and more calories continue to burn after the workout, leading to maximum weight loss – with the added benefit of no side-effects like achy, sore joints!
Increased metabolism, better energy and no compromise to the body – the Cycle 360 class is the full workout like no other!
