People taking a cycle class at Life Time

With its high-energy, community-centric atmosphere and music-driven movements, indoor cycling is among the most popular of group fitness offerings. To cater to various fitness levels and preferences, Life Time features five different indoor cycling classes for members.

“What I love the most about cycle at Life Time is that there is a class for everyone,” says Daphne Adebayo (@dap_adebayo), CPT, cycle instructor at Life Time Buckhead in Atlanta, Ga. “Whether you simply love to ride to the beat or are working toward specific goals and metrics, you’ll find what you’re looking for in a class here.”

And if you’re new to cycle altogether, don’t hesitate to ask for guidance. “I recommend getting to class at least 10 minutes early,” Adebayo advises. “I understand that the bike can seem intimidating, but your instructor is there to guide you. They can show you how to adjust your bike and offer some beginner tips. Also, I believe cycling is always better with a friend, so grab an accountability buddy to put in some work together!”

To help you find the class that best fits your goals and preferences, we’ve broken down each of the Life Time indoor cycle options.

Boost your mood with high-energy cardio intervals and great music.

What to expect: Often called a “party on a bike,” this class features choreographed, on-the-bike moves that are synchronized to the music and lights. The energetic instructors, along with the camaraderie with fellow cyclists, help keep you motivated so the workout flies by. You won’t track metrics in this class; simply show up to ride, break a sweat, and celebrate your efforts with the others in the class.

Equipment: Indoor cycling bike

Length: 45, 50, or 60 minutes

Train to improve your cycling endurance to the beat of heart-pounding music.

What to expect: Rhythm and metrics meet in this music-driven class that challenges your inner athlete. The high-intensity format is designed to improve your strength, speed, and stamina through objective-based challenges. You’ll use your bike’s console to measure your success as you go.

Equipment: Indoor cycling bike

Length: 45, 50, or 60 minutes

Progress your training to crush your personal record or train for a cycling race.

What to expect: This class integrates targeted metrics as you move through various levels of intensity. This class is programmed using objective training so you can elevate your performance on the bike both inside and outside of the cycle studio. If you wear a heart-rate monitor, you can more accurately pace yourself and measure your progress over time.

Equipment: Indoor cycling bike

Length:  45, 50, or 60 minutes

AMP Sculpt
Fuse cardio and strength movements for a full-body workout on and off the bike.

What to expect: Ride to the rhythm and lift to the beat with the same party-on-a-bike vibes you’ll find in AMP — but with an infusion of strength work. AMP Sculpt combines a high-cardio, choreographed ride with muscle-sculpting sections on or off the bike, using light to moderate weights.

Equipment: Indoor cycling bike, dumbbells, resistance bands

Length:  45, 50, or 60 minutes

EDG Sculpt
Experience high-intensity cycling intervals with sculpting strength moves on and off the bike.

What to expect: This class is a cycle experience with double the impact. Expect high-intensity, objective-based challenges paired with muscle-sculpting strength training, both on and off the bike. This key combination can help you unlock transformative fitness results.

Equipment: Indoor cycling bike, dumbbells, resistance bands

Length:  45, 50, or 60 minutes
