Took my first class (and it definitely won't be my last - I bought the 7 Day Unlimited New Student Special to start. Only $30.) at Nice Legs Exercycle Studio at Chapel View in Cranston, RI last night. Not gonna lie, I walked out sweaty and exhausted but in a good way. I mean I've done lots of yoga, hot yoga and Pure Barre, but I now know what was missing from my life - some good solid cardio. I don't care who you are or what you do, you need cardio in your life. For the love of Pete, everyone does!
One of coolest things about Nice Legs is that they have these Real Ryder bikes, which no one else in RI has. #BraggingRights These bikes are special because they actually move, pivoting from side to side, so while you're pedaling, you also have to steer and balance yourself. It's the closest thing to riding outside, with all the benefits and none of the hassles. Truthfully, I've been to cycle based classes at other places (from local gyms to resorts like Canyon Ranch) and have never seen or experienced anything like this.
So, yes, the bikes (and the instructors) give you one heck of a workout. Or, as my sister-in-law, an indoor cycling aficionado, says, you can't cheat with these bikes. You know how we've all cheated during classes, by not turning the dial up when the instructor tells us to? (Come on, you know exactly what I'm talking about.) Since these move and mimic the experience of riding outdoors, you basically have no choice but to give it your all. No coasting or going thru the motions. Not happening. And don't we all need that sort of push to get shorts and bathing suit ready this time of year? (I know I do.)
But Wait, There's More...
You can also book classes at the studio via the MINDBODY Connect app on your smartphone. Easy peasy. No more sign up sheets or getting wait listed. All of that's so last year. WINK. I mean who needs that stress and aggravation? I don't and I'm pretty sure you don't either.
Pop over to Chapel View and say hello to my friend Allegra and her team. (They're super friendly and helpful.) Let them show you how to get 'Nice Legs', nice arms, a nice butt, etc. In other words, let them help you get ready for the big summer reveal and ditch the baggy shorts and tunics or mumus this year, in favor of belly shirts and bikinis. It's totally possible. With NL and Real Ryders.
