Last week I took my first Flywheel class in Cameron Village. I have to admit I was a bit intimidated having never taken a class like this before (I had taken some cycling classes in my gym years ago). I arrived a few minutes early and was greeted by super friendly staff who helped me get my shoes for the bike and a locker to use. The lockers use your own security code so no need for bringing a lock. Towels and water were readily available. My bike was reserved for the class (you can choose and reserve your bike location in the studio) and the staff showed me how to properly get situated on the bike, lock in my shoes and adjust the seating and height. They showed me how to track my performance during the class and adjust the "torq". In-studio, every bike has a display with your Power Score and other metrics. The "Torqboard" is the TV screen in class where you can race other riders with an incognito "Torqname". This is optional but it is a unique feature of the class.
The room was nice and cool and they bring the lights way down once class starts so you can relax and get focused. The instructors are energetic and excited and work with all levels in the class. The music is loud and keeps you moving throughout the class. I like the 45 minute class versus an hour, for some reason it just feels like you can push harder and be done sooner ;-) After class, the instructor congratulated everyone and we all headed out to start our day!
There are really nice showers available if you need to get ready for work or whatever you have planned. Also, I definitely want to mention parking! I initially had the thought where in the world do you park for a class here? Not to worry! There is plenty of available free parking in the building garage. If you enter where the new Starbucks is located in Cameron Village and drive all the way through, you will see signs for parking in the garage under the apartment building. Bonus-your car will be nice and cool and out of the summer sun, after an intense workout! ;-)

#CVTRENDREPORT: I'm excited to partner again with Cameron Village and Jaguar Land Rover Cary again this Spring to feature some of the great merchants in the Village and highlight some 2018 Spring trends and great "hidden gems". I love shopping, dining, drinking, exploring local and it's been an amazing opportunity to get to know these merchants, their stories and their passion for what they do!
