What is Velo?
VELO IS A HEART PUMPING SPIN WORKOUT THAT’S SCALABLE TO YOUR ABILITY AND FITNESS LEVEL.
Whether you are a first timer on a bike or a seasoned triathlete, Velo will rock your world. The experience is formatted around an awesome playlist choreographed to a workout that will likely include a series of climbs, flats, sprints, hovers, and downhills. But, its not your average spin class. Velo will lift you up and help you dig into your inner strength when we also get you off the bike for circuit and core work. That piece may be in the beginning, middle or end, but one thing is for sure, it’s never the same workout.
What should I wear?
VELO: Most people are more comfortable in leggings or spandex for the bottoms, but it is certainly not required. Some people prefer to even wear bike shorts to prevent any chaffing from the seats. However, our Velo seats are much more cushy than any bike seat you’ve been on. For tops, tight or loose fitting is fine, whatever you feel more comfortable in. It gets hot really quick in here so layers work well. Good athletic socks to soak up the sweat help. For shoes, you will be fine in sneakers or bike shoes. Our pedals have both Shimano SPD clips and toe straps, so some people choose to bring their own bike shoes for a more secure and stable fit. We do not provide shoes at this time.
What should I bring?
VELO: Water. Drink up buttercup, before, during and after. It’s hot and sweaty in all the right ways. We provide towels and 2 giant fans to keep you cool. If you tend to get really hot, or are just starting out in your cardio training, sit by the big fan in the back for most air circulation.
