The Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven has not only invested in a new, larger, and cooler space for its indoor cycling area, it is also making room for 30 new Schwinn bikes. JCC Fitness Services Director Susan Donovan is excited to have the new bikes, which can now accommodate 29 participants in classes. Donovan said the upgraded Schwinn cycles feature computer consoles with technology that will “allow us to add another layer of fitness coaching to better help our members reach their goals.”
Indoor cycling classes are free for members. Classes are designed to accommodate all cycling levels. Classes for new riders help them to understand the basic setup of the cycles, work on proper technique and focus during a 30-minute ride while more advanced cyclists can sign up for 45-minute and 60-minute classes. There’s also a 30-minute gentle ride class offered.
All of the JCC’s instructors attended an extensive nine-hour training with the new cycles. “My goal is to offer the best quality indoor cycling program and studio in the area,” Donovan said.
