WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
A fitted tank or t-shirt with cycling shorts is recommended for comfort on the saddle. Cycling shoes are available to rent, if you do not have your own. They either have SPD clips or LOOK cleats and the bikes are capable of accepting either. New riders are encouraged to arrive early so your instructor can show you around and help you get set up properly on the bike.
We’re thrilled you want to take Indoor Cycling (IC) classes at EpicFit 365. All riders are required to sign a waiver in the studio prior to your first class, and students who are 13-17 years old must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
CHANGING AREAS AND LOCKERS
For your comfort and convenience, we provide such amenities as single use restrooms and showers, complimentary face towels, and a reverse osmosis water bottle filler. Secure lockers with simple, easy to use locks are provided at no charge. Instructions are printed on the locker, but our staff will always be happy to assist in securing your personal belongings. Most of the lockers also have a USB port for charging your phone while your in class!
If you book your bike online prior to class, your name and bike number will be on our sign-in kiosk at the desk. Make sure you verify your arrival so our staff knows you’re ready to Roll. Unclaimed bikes will be released 4 minutes prior to class, so it’s super important you remember to check in.
First time riders are encouraged to arrive 15-20 minutes early to settle in and give our staff a few minutes to show you the ins and outs of the ride. Because of safety concerns, new riders will not be admitted to class if they arrive late. All classes start on time, so make sure you’re on the bike before the lights go down.
WHAT SHOULD I EAT BEFORE CLASS?
We suggest you have a light snack 30-40 minutes prior to your ride. Approximately 100 calories of simple carbohydrate will maintain your blood sugar and energy level for the duration of the ride. Check our Facebook and Twitter for tips from our instructors.
Hydration is the key to an energizing, effective, and successful ride. Make sure you begin drinking water about 2 hours before your ride. Continue drinking during and after the ride. A reverse osmosis water bottle filler is available, and SMART water bottles are for sale in the studio.
Proper alignment on the Stages® SC3 indoor cycling bike is essential to protecting your knees, shoulders and back. For safety and effectiveness of the ride, it’s important that a trained staff member assist you in setting up your bike.
