Spinning studio offers daily classes

By Staff | Oct 19, 2017

LAHAINA – Enjoy the Ride MAUI is an indoor cycling studio located at Emerald Plaza in Lahaina.

The official Spinning studio offers daily classes in a positive and energized atmosphere. The studio space is dimly lit with candles and powered by a state-of-the-art sound system playing current dance, electronic, house and Top 40 hits.

“We have a team of talented and inspiring teachers to guide you through our weekly workouts. Riders will be coached through a 45- to 50-minute ride that can consist of interval training, endurance-based rides, steep hills, all the way to upper body strength training in conjunction with cycling to the beat on the Spin bike,” said owner Jeannette Howard.

Enjoy The Ride MAUI is committed to bringing its customers the most current fitness trends available.

The studio recently added a new Yoga Ride Class that incorporates a cardio workout with flexibility and strengthening elements.

Pairing indoor cycling’s cardiovascular intense, calorie-busting workout with yoga, the mind-body practice of stretching into inner peace, may seem like a mismatch, but fitness experts say it works.

The two very different activities complement each other to improve overall fitness and flexibility.

It’s a full-body workout in an hour’s time. The group starts with 30 minutes of Spin then changes gears, spending the next 30 minutes stretching out the things they tightened up.

The first (half) gets participants’ heart rate going, so they can jump into yoga quicker. The transition to yoga in the second half is fast, because the body is already warmed up and ready to ease into poses that open up and stretch the muscles and improve strength.

Yoga – with its emphasis on deep relaxation – restores balance after the stimulating aerobic efforts of cycling.

Howard noted, “If you do cycle, we recommend to incorporate a yoga ride class for complete body results; and if you already have a yoga practice, come see how this cardio combo will elevate your current yoga practice. Similarly, if you like yoga or are curious about this popular trend, you will LOVE this new class! Open for ALL levels!”
