I have been wanting to try Flywheel for so long and I don’t know why it took me so much time to do it. I love spinning classes! I’m obsessed with Soulcycle, which was one of the reasons I wanted to check how was Flywheel. What I really liked about flywheel is that there is a race between you and other people in the class which for me is an extra push to work hard. I’m a competitive person and for me its fun to race with the other people in the class and also to see how much I am improving from class to class. Another plus for me was the fact that the settings for the class are very clear. Each bike has a little screen in which you can see the torq (resistance), speed, and your total power (an algorithm based on your speed and resistance). So it is very easy to understand what intensity your trainer is asking you to achieve the HIIT benefits, and also to measure your work.
