In an effort to tone up and boost fitness levels, we quickly signed up for a free taster session at Flywheel; the new indoor cycling studio located in Downtown Dubai that boasts advanced technology in their custom designed bikes.
After signing up, you will be handed special shoes that lock into the pedals to ensure maximum safety while riding. The studio layout is inspired by stadium seating, with the instructor in front of the class to guide you through the right resistance, whilst cycling themselves, and managing the play list!
Screens at the front of the class display each cyclist’s results, so you can keep track of how you are doing compared to others. Your personal achievements are also available to view after the class, through an online account that can be accessed with a password provided by the studio.
Each class lasts between 40-60 minutes, covering a variety of different routines, including the use of weights to tone up arms. The energetic soundtrack helps to motivate, set the tone, and get adrenaline flowing – and the instructors are equally inspiring. Those that are slightly conscious of their weight will also appreciate the dark lighting in the studio.
We left our first session feeling physically exhausted, but mentally uplifted. It burns calories fast – and we will definitely be back for more.
