    "I love that it's a great workout with music but I don't have to worry about how coordinated I am and worry about my dance moves you know? The instructors really are great here. Totally worth every penny. However, this isn't an app, I can only access it through my laptop."

    "I was always having trouble finding local gym classes in my area to do yoga at. Now, I know what you're thinking: Who wants to see a 400 pound guy in tight yoga pants, doing downward facing dog? Well, probably no one, but I still need the exercise, and ClassPass helped me find some studios where people weren't so gosh darn judgmental."

    "I think that this concept should be implemented in gyms. It is a great concept if you want to explore other countries virtually by riding through their landscapes on an indoor cycling machine. I am not for this kind of concept however. It may be cool for some people, but for me, I like to cycle for purpose. If you live in Siberia or something, I guess it could be a fun application. I, like many other people, live in a zone where you can go outside and cycle most days of the year. Personal interactions can be made and cycling can be fun. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that cycling has been used for healthy living since the 18th century? Before the invention of the spin bike (stationary bike as now called), there was the Gymnasticon. It is an exercise machine invented by Francis Lowndes during the 18th century. It was for orthopedic treatment, as it exercises the joints. In the 19th century, indoor cycling became popular because it was more convenient than cycling outdoors. Charles Minthorn Murphy, known as Mile-a-Minute Murphy, was famous for having cycled a distance of one mile in 37 seconds while riding a bike on static rollers. As for outdoor cycling, it took him 57.8 seconds to ride a mile in the slipstream of a train. The vacuum left behind by the train offered less air resistance that normal, so he was able to achieve the feat.

Nowadays, indoor cycling has turned into an organized activity. These are often executed as informal classes accompanied by music and. It focuses on different cycling exercises for the overall improvement of a person’s endurance and strength. As with everything in the 21st century, there are now cycle workout apps developed specifically for indoor cycling. These spinning workout apps have personalized workout routines to develop strengths and improve weaknesses. It also contains playlists for cycling, and goal-setting for motivation.

    "I am helping out my brother because  he's suffering from mild obesity. Since he is too lazy to jog outside, we bought a stationary bike to encourage him to workout at home. The doctor said it is a good cardio workout. I just hope this app makes it easier for him. I downloaded it and found out that you can adjust your pacing if you want to have 20, 30, or 45-min workout and you can choose your instructor."

    "My husband likes to follow a program when he is on his stationary bike rather than just ride. He had another program, but it was slow and not very challenging. This one is great for advanced levels when you want to push yourself. Too but i cannot find an app version of this. I hope they develop soon. "
