Burn Fitness: Burn Cycle
Burn! That’s a perfect name for it. Not only do you sweat, you compete. You race against yourself and others in the class. Nothing beats a little friendly competition.
When we first began I wasn’t quite sure how the ranks worked.
You enter a stadium style studio with a screen projecting every participant’s bike number, name, and rank. Each bike is also equipped with it’s own computer breaking down RPM and Power.
As the class went on I saw my name go farther and farther up the chart on the big screen in the front of the studio; I went faster. I was motivated. Rather than getting tired, I pushed myself.
The class flew by with good music, encouragement from the instructor and intervals: hills, jumps, and sprints. We even had a little upper body workout with hand weights towards the end of class.
For me this class was a fun change of pace of a workout while on vacation. I was introduced to it by a friend and Lululemon employee who lives in Atlanta and I’m grateful for the recommendation.
