Les Mills RPM Training in Bristol
Les Mills RPM training from Luxe Fitness gym in Bristol is a low impact workout that uses an indoor cycle. Not only is it fun, but it also allows you to burn up to 675 calories each session. The varied intensity levels ensure that despite being simple, the exercise is never boring.
It is a group exercise where both the music and your instructor work to motivate you through the hill climbs, sprints and flat riding.
With great music pumping and the group spinning as one, your instructor takes you on a journey of shifting environments similar to riding a bike for real. Because the intensity level of Les Mills RPM varies throughout the 45 minute training time, your muscle adaptions are maximised.
The energy of the group and the rhythm of the music will spur you on and encourage you to meet your goals. This is a gradual exercise where you are able to build up to your ideal fitness regime over time. This is a journey, not a race – you are in control of your resistance levels.
Les Mills RPM training offers many great benefits. Here are just a few:
- Race proven and body proven
- Improve aerobic fitness
- Burn calories and fat
- Decrease blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Cardio peak training
- Matches the movements of outdoor cycling but in an air-conditioned environment
RPM initially stands for RAW Power in Motion, designed by Les Mills as an indoor cycling program to increase your cardio fitness and build on your lower muscles.
As recommend by Les Mills, you should look to do RPM training 2-3 times a week combined with some strength training such as Body Pump.
RPM Les Mills training allows you to work at your own pace so you can control what levels of resistance you prefer to perform at, meaning you can go as hard or as steady as you like. By turning up the speed you will progress your fitness levels overtime. The energy and music throughout the workout will keep you motivated and determined alongside the help of our professional trainers and other athletes.
Les Mills RPM works by building up your heart rate to a pace of 85-90 percent (of your maximum heart rate), then works to slow it down to around 60-80 percent. This combination of gradual and fast paced high-intensity training is known to build cardio endurance and reduces body fat mass.
You can take the LES Mills RPM inside our exclusive Virtual Indoors Cycling Studio which will be carried out by our professional trainers once our award-winning gym reopens. If you prefer to go online for the time being, you can access Les Mills RPM on demand with a free trial when you join and become a member. As part of your membership, you will have access to our Instagram members profile with 100 recorded classes for you to try!
The great thing about virtual RPM is that you can do it from the comfort of your own home and find a class that fits around your busy schedule without having to leave the house. Not only is the class virtual but it’s a workout where you’re in control as you get to control the resistance levels and speed which allows you to build up the intensity each time you do Les Mills RPM. If you want to turn up the intensity of your virtual RPM class all you need to do is adjust the resistance dial on your indoor cycling bike to a higher level. The higher you challenge yourself the more you will build up your cardio fitness and muscle strength. You can then move onto more difficult spin classes such as Les Mills Sprint if you like.
All you need to do a virtual RPM class is an indoor cycling bike and comfortable workout gear and shoes. Join RPM Bristol with Luxe Fitness Gym today!
