 Indoor Group Cycling

Indoor cycling classes are fun, energizing, and suited to all levels of fitness. With no complicated moves to learn and music that begs your legs to pedal, this class is bound to be fun and challenging. You can expect the instructors to offer coaching on proper pedaling mechanics and bike adjustments, as well as motivation as you progress through the workout. The wonderful thing about group cycling is that each bike has its own tension so the rider is ultimately in control of the workout received.

All participants are asked to show up 15 minutes early to set up the bikes. New participants who show up just before class may be asked to come back next time, as this will interrupt the flow of the class.

Please bring a towel and water bottle. Bike shorts and sturdy cross trainer shoes are recommended. Long pants/loose shorts and running shoes are discouraged. Helmets are optional. 4 of our 12 bikes have clipless pedals for biking shoes with SPD clips.

Please review the Cycling Information Sheet before coming to your first group cycling class.

Mon/Thurs: 6:15pm

Tues/Thurs: 7:30am

Wed & Fri: 12pm

AM class starts in September.
PM Classes start in November

Y Members: Free
Community: $60.00

Multiple class discount (within same session): Sign up for more than one Group Cycling class within a 6-week session and you'll receive a $5 discount on your second and subsequent classes within the same session.

T'ai Chi Chuan with Bill Milam

Summer 2016 - June 21 will be the last T'ai Chi class for the summer.
Come join again in the fall!

About the instructor: Bill has been a student of Tai Chi as well as Pau Kua and Hsing Yi at Wu Hsing Shan in Bath under the late Al Gardiner for over 20 years.Tai Chi Chuan is an intricate set of linked poses developed in China to enhance balance, fitness, and longevity. Its highly dynamic yet relaxed movement appears simple, fluid, and soft. In reality it is quite challenging, and when executed in the proper manner constitutes a demanding workout involving the mind as much as the body. Instruction will include the first third of the Yang family short form and Tai Chi walking and breathing, as well as some basic applications. Come learn to breathe and move in an entirely new way!
