Honking classes fully incorporate high intensity interval training (HIIT), scientifically proven to be the most effective way to burn fat. HIIT maximizes your workout by doing short periods of high intensity work, followed by a less intense recovery period. Honking burns an average of 500 – 700 calories per action-packed workout, and more significantly, causes the body to continue burning calories long after the workout without experiencing lower back pain or joint discomfort. In comparison to continuous, lower intensity activity, sprint intervals create a significantly greater increase in excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), and the added calories that accompany the increase in metabolism. This increased metabolic rate associated with EPOC is the primary contributing factor to the success of HIIT for weight loss. Mixed with other modalities like TRX and weight training, honking classes offer a much more effective workout in the shortest amount of time than any other cardio training for a wide variety of clients ranging from healthy young to middle age adults with advance fitness level to those with physical limitations or injuries coming from rehabilitation services.
With minimal joint impact forces and low soft tissue stress allows for a high intensity threshold on the muscular system thereby inducing less stress on the skeletal system hence limiting the potential of aggravating pre-existing injuries or even creating new ones.
The incumbent Bike can also be used as a rehabilitation tool for clients with physical limitation or injuries specifically in the hip and lower back. The most beneficial environment for injury rehabilitation; by enhancing repair while increasing: strength; range of motion; and restoring an integrated function with the rest of the body regardless of the situs of the injury being rehabilitated.
The incumbent bike training is the method Passion Cycles will use to distinguish its cycling classes from those offered by other companies on the market. The Incumbent Cycle requires recruitment of total body musculature, which generates a much higher cardiovascular demand. Because the intensity is higher, aerobic and anaerobic endurance is increased, speeding up metabolism, and significantly increasing the after-burn affect all in the safe environment for the lower back, hips and joints. In short – more calories are burned during the workout, and more calories continue to burn after the workout, leading to maximum weight loss.
The Incumbent Bike for a wide variety of clients ranging from healthy young to middle age adults with advance fitness level to those with physical limitations or injuries needing rehabilitation services. Combined with a motivational trainer at the helm of the class, great music, and a variety of exercises, its easy to rip through a calorie-shredding, upbeat, fun, motivational class.
