Studio cycling is probably the safest and most effective way to improve your cardiovascular fitness. You should however first check the PAR-Q questionnaire below before booking your class.


Safety First

You will get more out of your training if you wear the correct clothing. Padded cycling shorts are highly recommended. Moisture absorbing tops will help keep you dry. Bring a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated and performing at your best. Wear comfortable trainers and bring along a small towel or head band to mop your brow. Don’t spend a fortune on your gear - this is training not a fashion show!

Gear Up

Hi, I’m Clive - I’ve been teaching studio cycling pretty well since it was first introduced into the UK. Originally I kept strictly to the manual, I soon realised however that a much better workout could be achieved by including complimentary upper body exercises.

The great thing about studio cycling is that everyone starts and finishes at the same time -  whatever your level of fitness. It’s not a race so you won’t be left behind or feel embarrassed if you feel like a short rest

PAR-Q is designed to help you help yourself. Many health benefits are associated with regular exercise and the completion of PAR-Q is a sensible first step to take. For most people physical exercise should not pose any problem or hazard. PAR-Q has been designed to identify the small number of individuals for whom physical activity might be inappropriate, or those who should seek medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them. Please be aware however that all exercise carries a risk of injury, however small and that consequential loss due to injury during a COVOX class or cardiovascular fitness assessment is not covered.

Common sense is your best guide in answering these few questions. Please read them carefully and answer YES or NO.

(1) Has your doctor ever said that you have heart trouble?

(2) Do you frequently have pains in your chest?

(3) Do you often feel faint or have spells of dizziness?

(4) Has a doctor ever said your blood pressure was too high?

(5) Has your doctor ever told you that you have a bone or joint problem such as arthritis that has been aggravated by exercise or that might be made worse by exercise?

(6) Is there a good physical reason not mentioned here why you should not follow an activity program even if you wanted to?

(7) Are you over 65 years of age and are you unaccustomed to doing vigorous exercise?

(8) Are you taking medication that might affect your response to exercise?

(9) Have you been prescribed or are you taking drugs that reduce your blood pressure or reduce your heart rate?

If you have answered YES to one question or more in the PAR-Q then this does not necessarily prevent you from taking a class or fitness assessment, however you are recommended to consult with your doctor before increasing your physical activity.

If you have answered NO to all questions and you have answered PAR-Q accurately, you have reasonable assurance of your present suitability for a cardiovascular training programme.

I will endeavour to make your training as safe as possible, so I will need you to sign the PAR-Q questionnaire. NO one has ever experienced injury during any of my classes, but please be aware that all exercise caries a risk of injury however small.
