Part of Dallas’ Beyond Studios group, Beyond Pedaling is a 50-minute spin class on steroids! You’ll start on state-of-the-art stationary bikes in a cool, dark room. The bikes monitor your output and display it on the projection screen (by number, not name... so if you’re a newbie, you don’t have to worry about competing with veteran cyclists). This will allow you to track your progress (and, yes, compete with the others if you’re the Christina Aguilera ultra-competitive type). The intro session is only $15 and you should bring your own water and towel. If you like a little more variety, they also offer a Pedaling & Blast/Pilates/Barre option that allows you to take advantage of Beyond’s other studios, as well.
