You may have heard about FUSE, our new lineup of one-of-a-kind workouts combining indoor cycling with elements of other class formats, such as strength, barre, and core conditioning.
All FUSE workouts at CADENCE are designed by an exercise physiologist and a team of certified trainers and instructors to ensure you receive a well-rounded, safe, and highly effective exercise experience. Track in-class performance metrics, including power (using Stages® power meters) and heart rate (if a monitor is available), on in-studio displays!
At CADENCE, we are proud that all of our instructors hold nationally-recognized fitness certifications, alongside their passion for making fitness fun and effective for their clients! Many of our team members also have undergraduate and graduate degrees in health and fitness. We are firm believers in education and the significance of the services we provide for our clients within the healthcare continuum.
We hear it all the time, right? An age-old question that intends to persuade us into a low-cost or risk-free action that leads us to the possibility of reward. It's one we often ask, too, when we offer new clients their first class free. Most of the time, the question is rhetorical in nature. But when it comes to exercise and your wellbeing, there's a lot to lose.
When we quantify our work, we can track our progress both over time and in real-time. In the weight room, we know we're improving when we can lift more weight. Runners know they're progressing when they can run farther, faster. In cycling, we use power as a gold standard, even over mileage and heart rate. While heart rate training is highly beneficial, it can be influenced by many variables such as the body's physiological responses to inadequate sleep, temperature, water intake, caffeine, and overtraining. Power on the other hand, is a mechanical response -- the only way to increase it is to do the work!
Spring is a great time of year to talk about #mentalhealth. Actually, any time of the year is ideal for talking about mental health, but we just wrapped up National Stress Awareness month in April and now Mental Health Month is going on through May. With 1 in 5 adults in America (more than the population of NY and FL combined) dealing with anxiety, depression, or other mental health conditions -- it’s time we talk (and keep talking) about it.
Think back to some of your best memories of being active during childhood or adolescence. Did it involve being together with friends, family members, or teammates? As we get older, we still thrive on socialization, but don’t always have the time or opportunities to do so. Exercise itself carries a multitude of benefits for your overall well-being, but exercising with a group? You could be gaining a lot more than if you choose to work out on your own.
