    Fitness expert Laurie Granger demonstrates how to ride an indoor stationary cycle.

    Hello, my name is Laurie Granger. I have been working in the fitness industry for the past 20 years, teaching indoor cycling for the last five. I work at one of the largest fitness facilities in the country, teaching up to 48 people at one time in an indoor cycling class. As far as indoor cycling goes, this is an indoor cycling bike. There is a bit few differences between this bike and the one you see here that you may have at home or in the cardiovascular section of your gym. With this bike you can climb out of the saddle, and when you come out of the paddles, the paddles will continue to go, unless you push down on the emergency break. With the one you will find at home as you remove your feet from the paddles, the paddles will automatically slow down. Few things well need before we get started. Youll need towel, youll need some water. Well burn a lot of calories, and well do quite a bit of sweating. Its helpful often times to have shorts with padding, as well as a nice wicking shirt to keep you cool. Once you have been riding consistently and if you find yourself riding two or three indoor cycling classes in a weeks time, then you may want to think about getting cycling shoes that have clips on the bottoms to hook in, to give you a more efficient ride. We are going to move on now and talk about the different forms of riding an indoor cycling bike.
