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!
Why is cycling at the cornerstone of every FUSE workout? For starters, indoor cycling is highly adaptable to all fitness levels -- participants are able to adjust individual resistance levels based on their own perceived exertion levels. Cycling is also low-impact, meaning it's easy on the knees, hips, and ankles (hooray! for injury prevention).
Aside from keeping things interesting and making your workout FLY by, FUSE workouts train all three of your body's energy systems. Fitness is multidimensional, and your workouts should be too. By training all 3 energy systems, you're able to perform different types of work more efficiently over time. You'll feel your heart rate increase and stay elevated while off the bike performing other types of movement, meaning increased energy expenditure throughout the workout. If that's not all, your metabolism will be supercharged for an extended period even AFTER your workout, a phenomenon called Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC).
Are you a data geek like we are? Our superior technology allows you to track a number of performance metrics using our FitMetrix system. The studio is equipped with the best cycling equipment in the industry, the Stages® SC3 indoor cycling bikes. Each bike has a power meter on the crank arm, allowing you to track power output (and watch it climb over time as you get stronger!), in addition to cadence (RPM), distance, and speed. Track your heart rate as well during any of our FUSE classes by pairing an ANT+ heart rate monitor to your FitMetrix account. Scosche® Rhythm+ Heart Rate monitors are currently INCLUDED with enrollment in any of our recurring memberships an ($80 value!) while supplies last.
We hope to see you in a FUSE class starting September 22nd, Lexington!
