FAQ

What makes TRIM different from other indoor cycling/spin gyms?

TRIM is the first indoor cycling studio in The Capital Region to make exclusive use of the revolutionary RealRyder™ bikes. They are the only stationary bikes in the world that allow riders to bank (lean) into a turn. As a result the workouts are more dynamic, intense and incorporate more muscle groups during use than a traditional indoor cycling bike. Athletes that burn 600+ calories on a typical spin bike will burn 900+ calories in the same time frame on the RealRyder.

Who can take a class?

People of all fitness levels can take a TRIM class. Although our instructors will push you to give it your all, the intensity of the workout depends on how much you push yourself. Please let your instructor know of any specific health or fitness issues you may have before the ride begins. As always check with physician before starting any new fitness activity.

Why do road and mountain cyclists like the RealRyder™ bikes so much?

The RealRyder™ bike was designed by a serious cyclist who wanted to find a way to approximate the feeling of being on the road or trail. Typically, and especially during the colder months, cyclists will train indoor on a ‘trainer’ which is usually pretty boring but is the closest thing to being on a real bike. Now with RealRyder™, cyclists can work out on a bike that feels considerably closer to the real thing and enjoy the benefits of the class experience (more fun, harder workouts).
