Even though it's group exercise, indoor cycling is ultimately each individual's own ride. We've labeled this class "Beginner" and kept it at 30 minutes, but this workout can be modified and will be effective for any fitness level. You get to control your intensity using resistance on a specially designed stationary bike while Amie gives you instruction and encourages you to do your best!
