Health and Diet
Get baseline readings on your blood cholesterol. Total cholesterol should be below 200; your HDL should be 35 or more. High cholesterol is a risk factor for heart disease. The good news is you can get a handle on your cholesterol. Be proactive! Achieve a healthy weight for your height, stay physically active and have your cholesterol level checked regularly.

Exercise on an empty stomach. You will burn more calories from fat if you exercise on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. And there is more to it. At the end of 24 hours, you still have to create a negative caloric deficit. The bottom line is that you should exercise when it works best for your body and your schedule. If you don’t have the energy to exercise in the morning because your stomach is empty, you are better off having a light meal and then exercising.

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. Many are also competitive athletes having competed or participated in century and metric-century rides, triathlons, open water swims, mud-runs, marathons, half-marathons, 5 & 10k's, and amateur figure & bodybuilding competitions. 

We walk-the-walk!

So, whether you are a seasoned runner, cyclist, triathlete or just enjoy a good indoor cycling workout, we have a program for you at SWEAT!
