In our fast-paced lives, finding the time to exercise can be a challenge.
That's why a new indoor cycling studio in Lake Charles is offering a 45 minute head-to-toe workout that maximizes your time and multiple muscle groups.
The lights are low, music is pumping, and the sweat is already flowing for riders like Keith Woodard at Roll Indoor Cycling.
"It's a great workout," he said. "It's something I can do at all times, even if it's raining here in Southwest Louisiana."
Woodard, like the other riders in the class, does not have much free time, so riding a bike needs to work out more than the legs.
That is where this full body workout, led by instructor Lauren Devillier, comes into play. It works the shoulders, arms, back, abs, glutes and legs, all in 45 minutes.
"We do about eight to 10 minutes of arm weights, different exercises, and then we do push-ups on the bike as well and ab workouts," she said.
Riders can see in real time how hard they are working, their heart rate and how many calories they are burning.
"Usually on a 45-minute class, I burn anywhere from 600-700 calories," Woodard said.
Post-workout reports are emailed to riders to track progress, making fitness more of a lifestyle and not just a workout.
That is the concept behind Roll Indoor Cycling, according to founder, Jackie Tabor.
