Author: admin | Filed under: Riders, Training

We’ve had lots of theme rides in the past couple of weeks, but Emily has been working hard on putting together a “winter theme” ride that doesn’t contain xmas or holiday music! It’s a playlist filled with artist who have “winter like” names.. for example – Jack White, Mike Snow, The Cranberries, etc.
Here’s a sample of her awesome Winter playlist for you to enjoy! See you tonight at 6pm!

Sleigh Bells – Comeback Kid

Coldplay – Charlie Brown

The Darkness – I believe in a thing called love

The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army

Winter Theme Ride

Author: admin | Filed under: Uncategorized

At CYKL we believe we have the best indoor spinning studio in Toronto, with the best riders, instructors, and staff who bring their incredible energy and hard work to the studio every day! In addition to all that awesomeness, there are some great reasons to ride at CYKL!

First and foremost is our bikes, you can burn 20% more calories on a Realryder than on a traditional spin bike. Secondly is the calorie and fat burning effect of our real indoor cycling classes! On the schedule we have interval classes listed as CYKL 45, CYKL 60, CYKL Climb or CYKL Interval. These classes are high intensity classes, designed to get your heart rate up while working on improving power and strength through threshold and anaerobic efforts (meaning 7-9/10 efforts – hard stuff). These classes have a BIG calorie burn because the intensity is high! But don’t be scared, you ride at your own pace and ALWAYS you do what YOU can in each and every class.

The second type of class we teach is an endurance class – CYKL Endurance (60-75mins). These classes are geared to work your fat burning heart rate zone (looking at 4, 5, 6, or 7/10). Less about power and more about challenging steady state riding. You’re working on building your aerobic capacity, endurance and muscular endurance at the same time your body is learning how to use fat as a fuel source (yes!!).

These 2 styles of classes compliment each other, the better your aerobic base (endurance classes), the harder you can push in an interval class. The combination of classes will have you burning LOADS of calories throughout the class, increasing your cardio capacity, as well as kick up your metabolism throughout the day. In addition to a clean diet, we always see lots of our clients achieve their weightloss goals, with many going beyond what they ever expected!
