Dynamo Cycling Reviews
This studio is incredible! As an avid spin class student in the United States, it was hard to find the right place here in Paris since the trend is not nearly as widespread as it is in the US. The... more »
I took 3 classes in 3 days on a recent stay....it was such a laugh...definitely tougher and more crazy choreography than elsewhere in the world!.....so awards are to Selin for the easiest instruction.... more »
I tested dynamo cycling yesterday and I liked it. Very tough and demanding training. However I think that some of the applied training methods should be improved: - use more time in the saddle! Riding at +90 rpm out of the saddle is maybe funny but is certainly inefficient, feels odd and increases the chance if having cramps very early in the training. - better timing of the HIT intervals. The intervals are nicely synchronized with the music which is fun but a more rigorous approach would be to have a well defined timing of high intensity and active recovery. A Clock showing the seconds to go would be great. - the choreography of arm and body movements on the bike is funny but I don't really get the idea behind that - or I am just do dumb to do that at +90 rpm, out of the saddle on a spinning bike in the dark. - it is very very dark in the room. I dropped my bottle and had a hard time finding it on the floor and getting back into the click pedals in the dark. Why not turning on the light a little bit, at least in the recovery intervals. Still good training though - for people seeking a controlled increase of the FTP, there might be better classes in other studios nearby.
Took a 45-min class with Cyril. Great instructor, but please change the routine a bit: 1) Please, please, please spend more time in the saddle. It significantly reduces the quality of the workout if we are spending 80% of the time trying to run 90+ RPM in third. The lower back fatigues early and we can’t max out our legs 2) The choreography on the bike was a bit too much. The class was trying to follow a sequence of complex hand movements and people were slipping on the bars / going slower just to see what was happening. Keep the hand movements simpler and focused on the music so people could stay in the zone and connect with the rhythm further 3) Turn the music up!! Might have just been this class, but The Offspring is not meant to be listened too on anything but max volume :) 4) Overall, I would suggest to focus on the music and rhythm more and the technicalities less. People will push themselves to the music. But the whole idea is to connect with the music so you could push further than what you think Overall I love Dynamo and will continue to come in the future!
