For those of you who bike through the bitter cold of winter, we applaud you. For those who don’t, YYC Cycle is the place to get your spin on while some of us wait for some warmer weather.

The 50-minute class will not only get your heart pumping, but also help strengthen and tone muscles in your legs, core, and upper-body. If the promise of a good sweat isn’t enough to convince you, maybe the in-class party lights will.

Never heard of Lagree before? Well, you’re not alone. Lagree is a resistance-based full-body workout similar to pilates that will definitely leave you in a sweat.

What’s unique about Lagree is that the movements are slow and controlled. Lagree movements cause you to really focus on muscle control — if you think that sounds too easy, try it out first and then get back to us.
