Health and Diet
Diabetes is a non-negotiable condition. That means your options are limited if you have diabetes or are predisposed to the disease — it’s essential to adopt good behaviors in order to improve your condition or lower your risk of developing diabetes. Maintain or achieve a healthy weight by following a sensible diet and getting daily physical exercise. When motivation lags, think of your health.

Fitness
One of the easiest ways to monitor your exercise intensity is to rate perceived exertion (RPE). Whether you walk, jog, bicycle, bench step, climb stairs or perform low-impact aerobics (i.e. Kangoo Jumps® or POUND®), your exercise intensity should be within a range of comfort. Perceived exertion is assessed by using a 0 to 10 chart to rate the feelings caused by your exertion. (with 0 being no exertion and 10 being maximum effort). This scale corresponds more to a feeling of breathlessness.  The recommended RPE range for most people is usually between 3 (moderate) and 5 (strong) up to 6-8 (vigorous) for high-intensity interval training.

We know true strength comes from building a strong core. We've chosen a unique mix of equipment that maximizes the use of your core in every functional way. We start with the RealRyder® ABF8 "unstationary" bikes that twist, turn and lean and have revolutionized indoor cycling from what was essentially a cardio workout, into a full body fitness program.

Our group Kangoo Jumps®, POUND® and Kettlebell classes also provide heart pounding, fat burning, and core centric workouts. Round it out with individual or small group personal training. Are you ready to try something new? Our body weight resistance workouts feature the TRX® Suspension Trainer and TRX® Rip Trainer. We also design challenging full-body, traditional weight training programs.

The owners and staff of SWEAT Cycling Studio and Personal Training are energetic and passionate about fitness. Each are required to be certified as indoor cycling, group exercise instructors and personal trainers.
