My sister recently opened a new cycling studio, Evolution ByCycle, in Central Jersey, most specifically East Brunswick. If you're unfamiliar with cycling, it's basically a stationary bike but you have an instructor in the front of the room yelling at you to push yourself harder and faster. I mean, the instructor is there to help inspire people to expand their limits so that they can get more physically fit but as I'm not one for working out, it seems a lot like yelling to me.
Apparently, cycling is all the rage nowadays. People like cycling as an exercise routine because it's low impact, which reduces the possibility of severe injury, and raises the heart rate significantly while burning a high amount of calories. The problem with cycling is that not a lot of places offer it on a consistent schedule so it's either not at a convenient time. or if you can find a class that fits your schedule, it's obnoxiously far away. Having been disappointed with her own local cycling studio, my sister just decided she needed to open her own.
After looking for places to set up shop, she settled on the quiet town of East Brunswick in the Lexington Downs Shopping Center at the corner of Lexington Avenue and Cranbury Road.
Did I mention no membership fees? I think I did but it's worth repeating.
With New Year's coming up, a few of you are sure to have "Get in Shape/Lose Weight" on your Resolution list and cycling is a great way to get that taken care of.
Oh, and here. Print out this image and bring it with you or pull it up on your phone and you can get your first ride free. So if you're not sure if cycling is for you, you get a free session to test it out.
You really have nothing to lose.
