While the popularity of various routines fluctuates as consumer preferences shift, indoor cycling has long been established as a fundamental fitness fad that is here to stay. Cycling has been practiced indoors for a long time. It’s a safe, familiar setting, which is why it’s one of our most common ones at Third Space, especially among new members. Because people know what’s coming from an indoor training class, the intimidation factor is lower than it is with other classes.
Indoor cycling has evolved and innovated in its own way, from immersive, gamified experiences to quality, premium smart bike products. It will always be popular and have a view of becoming a less impactful way to raise heart rate than other HIIT-style workouts, but it has evolved and innovated in its own way.
Indoor cycling has been taken in interesting new ways thanks to the explosion of reliable statistics and rapid feedback. What used to be primarily about music and movement has grown into an indoor riding experience that uses statistics, performance tracking, and metrics to motivate members.
The data has improved in accuracy and refinement, and members and instructors alike have gained a better understanding of how to exercise effectively within instruction zones. Trainers use this data to become coaches, examining performance and technique and assisting people even within a class setting, thanks to a specific pedaling effectiveness score present on the bikes.
The setting is the key pillar of a class, and customers today expect an encounter from their training. Third Space is now conducting research at our studios on the psychology of color and light sequencing. We link different hues with different emotions because the color is a learned response.
Technology-assisted or instructor-assisted classes are both possible. However, electronics will always be a benefit to a class’s overall coaching. We’ve witnessed how members buy into our team, their love and enthusiasm for fitness, as well as their encouraging and motivating attitude and charm, at Third Space. Coaches are no longer just sitting at the front of the room spinning on a bike; they are continuing to work with elevated amounts of EQ and transferable skills, ensuring that the data that is now available is used in the most effective ways to ensure a most individualized positive member experience for each and every person.
