What to expect before you clip in
1. Arrive early
New RIDERS, you MUST arrive 20 minutes before class for your introduction to Bodhi & Ride. If you miss this, you will not be permitted to RIDE. Whether you’re a total pro or a complete beginner, the same deal applies.
2. Drink lots of water
You’re going to sweat. A LOT. So make sure you drink plenty of water beforehand and during the class.
3. Wear the right gear
Like we said, you’re going to sweat – so wear fitted gym gear so it doesn’t get caught in the pedals (no baggy pants). Make sure you have socks and we’ll give you a pair of cleated spin shoes to ride in. We have change rooms and lockers in all studios if you need to get changed before you RIDE.
What to expect during your first RIDE
1. High energy and a whole lot of fun
We don’t spin. We RIDE. Our range of classes are a high intensity, energy-filled workout with lots of fast movements and choreography and riding to the beat. It can take some time to pick up the moves – so all you need to focus on for the first class is riding on the beat, listening to the instructor and the rest will fall into place. (Trust the process – it will all be worth it).
2. Water. Weights. Towel.
Bring a water bottle, grab a towel and make sure you have weights before you start the class. Water and a towel can be purchased from reception and if you need them, ear- plugs are available on request (warning: it can get loud in the chamber). You’ll need a set of weights too. These are found on the bike or at the front of the RIDE chamber, but if you’re not sure where to look, the instructor will be there to help you.
What to expect after your first RIDE
(also, WELL DONE! You made it!)
1. Give yourself a high five
Hell yeah. You made it! Give yourself a high five, pat on the back and whip your towel in the air because you just completed your first RIDE. Trust us – it gets better and better from here and you’ll soon realise why people become obsessed with Bodhi & Ride.
By the way, each studio has showers and change room facilities too (so you don’t have to drive home sweaty).
2. Drink more water. Again and again.
We keep banging on about drinking water, but it’s SO important, so drink up.
3. Obsessed with Bodhi?
Time to book your next class, tell the world how much you loved riding with us and get ready to get stronger, fitter and faster while connecting your mind to meaningful movement.
4. Rest up.
You deserve it. Don’t be surprised if you feel tired after your first class. Rest up, catch some sleep and get ready to do it all over again.
