Challenge your body, Enlighten your mind – This is Bodhi & Ride. Conveniently Located in Port Melbourne, Melbourne’s CBD and soon South Yarra, Bodhi & Ride are boutique wellness studios providing a modern and innovative twist to wellbeing. A revolution in the Australian boutique fitness industry combining immersion in a nightclub environment with fitness for a whole body and mind experience. A typical Ride class burns 400-600 calories: 28 bikes, nightclub lighting and music intensity, 45 minutes DJ-sampled music providing cardio and weight training for upper and lower body. We offer high intensity cardio workouts, interspersed with periods of mindfulness and upper body training. Come and RIDE with us.
Our RIDE class is where everything becomes possible, where you push through the “I can’ts” and ‘I won’ts’.You workout faster, more intense, sweat dripping, zone out, quiet down. This is what transformation looks like. This is what a full body and mind workout becomes reality. Where you become the best version of yourself.
Our RIDE method is based on Science and efficiency – this is not a fitness trend:
We work at higher intensity, but for shorter periods. Our class structure is based on HIIT (high-intensity interval training) where you give one hundred percent through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. In a RIDE class, you will burn between 250 – 600 calories. Because we offer full-body workouts, you will tone muscles and shred fat. Your metabolism will increase and thanks to the after-burn effect, you’ll keep burning fat even when you’re in the car on your way home. The Magic happens when the doors close, lights dim, and music turns up. When we all stop and close our eyes, and take a deep breath. When we set an intention for the RIDE ahead. There’s a palpable energy in the room that pushes you further. It’s the soul, body, mind combination that we bring to you. You’ll feel supported, not just by our team, but also by our community. HIIT stimulates neurons in your brain and endorphins in your body. Our bad-ass tunes and thumping bass pushes you to ride and work harder than you ever thought possible. The signature LED lit studios to enable you to lose yourself in the primal endorphin rush. You’ll leave feeling less stressed, happier and with a great sense of achievement. Come and RIDE with us.
