THE 3 CLASSES

 

The Keirin

 

A form of motor-paced cycle racing - cyclists sprint for victory following a speed controlled start behind a motorised pacer. Races are approximately 2 km long; 8 laps on a 250m track or 5 laps on a 400m track. Riders remain behind the racer for a predetermined number of laps. The pace continually increases before the motorised derny leaves the track, signalling a sprint to the finish.

 

The Individual Sprint

 

The Individual Sprint involves 2 riders going head to head over 3 laps, with the race taking a 'cat and mouse' approach. Riders can reach up to 75km/h, but tactics are just as important as speed. Competitors often deliberately start slowly to try and strategically position themselves before sprinting for the line over the final 200m.

 

The Team Spirit

 

Also known as the Olympic Sprint, the men's event includes a 3-man team trial held over 3 laps, with the women's event comprising of a 2-woman team trial held over 2 laps. 2 teams race against each other, starting on opposite sides of the track. At the end of each lap, the leading rider in each team pulls up on the banking leaving the next rider to lead the next lap until each team member has raced. he team with the fastest time is the winner.


TOP 5 FACTS ABOUT PRO-CYCLING

ProCycling

1 Pro-Cycling is fun

 

There's a few more efficient cardiovascular workouts than a Pro-Cycling workout, but they ignores the fun aspect: you get to pretend you're an Olympic cyclist and learning the cycling training techniques that the pro's use. You forget you're there to get fit.

2 No longer than 30 minutes

 

Pro-Cycling is a set of three 30 minute group cycling classes, themed around professional track cycling events. All 3 programs are designed to maximise your results in the minimum amount of time. The 30 minute workouts also allow you to push past your perceived limitations all in a highly motivating environment. 

 

3 Ideal for the time-poor

 

Pro-Cycling is ideally suited for the time-poor member who wants a highly effective and efficient cardiovascular workout. It's perfect for members that enjoy structured workouts which will motivate them to push their limits.

4 Low impact, high intensity exercise

 

Pro-Cycling is popular with anyone seeking a low impact, high intensity workout. There is growing evidence demonstrating that the same or superior benefits are achieved by high intensity compared to continuous aerobic exercise.  Pro-Cycling is low impact, which means you aren't punishing your joints with jarring movements while you exercise. With indoor cycling your joints aren't absorbing any shocks from impact with the ground; your joints are constantly engaged in smooth movements while you pedal, making it a great way to get the benefits of high intensity training while being kind to your joints.

5 Amazing Instructors

 

We encourage our members to arrive at the class about 10 minutes early and introduce themselves to the instructor. This allows our instructor to appropriately set you up on a bike to ensure safety and efficiency when riding. The instructors will also take you through the basics of indoor cycling and what to expect. We also encourage you to approach the workout with a sense of purpose, determined to do their best.
