Cycle


We offer indoor cycling classes for everyone; for those who are completely new to indoor cycling, for those who have been “spinning” for years and are looking for a way to reinvigorate their love of “spin”, for those who love outdoor riding when they can do it, but who want to stay fit through the winter seasons, and even for those who cycle competitively and are looking for the data feedback they need and instructors who will understand the unique needs of competitive athletes.

 

 

 

 

 

Strength Training with TRX


TRX Suspension training is beautiful for it’s simplicity and accessibility to all levels! Developed by Navy Seal, Randy Hetrick, it’s original purpose was to provide a portable, functional, effective tool that would help Randy, and his Seal teammates stay in peak condition while on duty in places that did not allow access to traditional fitness equipment. Today, TRX suspension training is becoming the functional training system of choice for elite units in every branch of the Armed Forces. TRX suspension training is also utilized by the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB. As Functional Training rises in popularity, the TRX trainer is gaining ground in gyms, studios, and “boxes” all across the country. Suspension training is perfect for a small studio setting.

 Why we are different!

 

 

our_bikesOur Bikes


The Schwinn AC Performance is one of the best bikes on the market. With it’s MPower console, this bike allows riders to focus on form, efficiency, and performance parameters in order to get the very most out of each workout. The Schwinn also uses magnetic resistance rather than friction resistance. This alleviates the inconsistent pressure that results from issues with worn-out brake pads.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

blingOur Bling


Yes, we have bling! We’ve got amazing sound, lighting, video, and performance monitoring systems. We’re able to run classes that you won’t find at most indoor cycling studios; classes like our BreakAway Epic Cycle, which brings you to locations around the world to experience a virtual road ride or mountain trail ride.  Another favorite is BreakAway Concert Cycle-you can't go wrong with this challenging ride set to live music and comedy!  All of our rides offer Performance IQ data tracking, so that you can easily monitor your power, cadence, and overall energy (kilojoule) production and calorie consumption!

 

 

 

 


 

 

our_bikesOur Instructors


We know that behind all the glitz and glamour of the “boutique” setting, our value still lies strongly in the quality of our instructors. Rest assured, that knowledge is what has guided our choices. We’ve brought together a “dream team” of instructors. They are all knowledgeable, energetic, passionate, motivating, creative, and dedicated to making your workout the best it can be!

Longmont Fitness Studio Joins Elite Training Group

 BreakAway Cycle & Strength Studio: One of Three TRX Premier Facilities in Colorado

 

            BreakAway Cycle & Strength Studio, which opened in downtown Longmont in 2012, has become a TRX Premier Facility, adding TRX TEAM Blocks programming. The proven small-group program aimed at specific goals – Strong, Fit, or Lean – involves 30- to 60-minute classes with tailored workouts to maintain a balance of focused core strength, stability, and muscular strength development.

“TRX TEAM workouts are perfectly suited to the smaller group format that is a signature quality of BreakAway’s strength program,” says owner Alison Zemanek, adding that TRX coaches provide more personalized attention in the cohorts of eight to 10 people. “The world-class TRX programming led by BreakAway’s incredible coaching team is guaranteed to deliver big results!”

            TRX TEAM Blocks program starts on Aug. 4 at the boutique fitness studio at 439 Main St. BreakAway also offers Indoor Cycling classes with personalized Performance IQ data tracking. The facility offers top-of-the-line equipment, highly-educated instructors and coaches, and an expanding list of program offerings.

Workout of the week: Thursday Night Live cycling
By Aimee Heckel Camera Staff Writer

POSTED:   05/07/2013 09:59:01 AM MDT | UPDATED:   ABOUT A YEAR AGO


 
BreakAway Cycle and Strength Studio

439 Main St., Longmont

720-491-3195

breakawaylongmont.com

Instructor: Zack Hoh, of Longmont. Hoh is a mechanical engineer at Ball Aerospace by day, and a certified indoor cycling instructor by night. He's been certified and teaching since 1998.

He began teaching at BreakAway Cycle when it opened in September.

What is the workout? An indoor cycling class set to live musical concerts and comedy projected on a wide-format screen in the front of the room. The workout is set to a strategic visual and audio soundtrack.

Just because the TV is on doesn't mean this class is easy. If anything, you will be relieved to have the comedic relief to take your mind off your burning thighs for a moment before the music kicks in again. The workouts are on top-of-the-line Schwinn AC Performance bikes with MPower consoles, which provide all kinds of numbers for Hoh to use to help push you through different drills.

Hoh says he wanted to create something that people would look forward to -- something that would make people actually want to come inside, even in the summer in beautiful Boulder County. His drills are realistic for real bike riding, to appeal to people who are passionate about the outdoors, he says. He wanted to combine that with entertainment that makes you feel good.

"I really wanted to create something that felt like an event, something they're look forward to all week," he says.

The classes are organized around a fun theme -- starting with a solid class plan centered around cycling drills, Hoh says.

He says he has spent hundreds of hours gathering video clips and using DVR technology to create an extensive library to pull from.

What's different: I've never heard of a cycling class like this.

Hoh created drills that forced the students to interact (such as asking people to randomly call out "on your left" when we needed to pick it up, to simulate a race). This kept us involved and built camaraderie.

The studio itself is different, too. It feels like a "boutique" fitness studio, with a sleek, modern design, and upscale equipment, lighting and sound -- sparing no expense (including the bikes). When you think of indoor cycling, you usually find a warehouse-style room with cement floors. This space feels more like a luxury spa.

It even offers child care.

The bikes are also different. By providing so many numbers, they allow you to set precise goals, and they allow the instructor to establish a classwide rhythm, while still allowing each individual student to set her own challenges.

What does it cost? So surely a high-end fitness studio with these kind of amenities is going to be over-the-top expensive, right? Here was my biggest surprise: first class is free, and after that, buy a 10-class pass for only $10 per class. Bigger passes can bring classes down to $6 each; that's nearly rec center rates. Definitely one of the cheapest fitness options I've seen around Boulder County, and for one of the nicest studios I've experienced.

When: 6-7 p.m. Thursdays. Each class is different.

Level: All levels. This class is often recommended to new clients and people relatively new to indoor cycling, because the video provides a great distraction. But because you have control over your bike's power (and how many watts you can generate), you can make the class as hard as you want. Because of the challenging drills, Hoh says it also appeals to competitive racers.

I found the class an eight on a 10-point intensity scale. I sweated profusely and pushed myself super hard. But looking back, all I can remember is the fun parts of class. Although my body worked hard, my brain totally didn't know.

What to prepare: Hoh recommends padded bike shorts or a gel seat, and a good pair of bike shoes with a stiff sole. Running shoes are squishy, so they don't transfer the power as comfortably into the pedal, he says.

However, for your first few classes, you can wear shorts (I even wore yoga pants) and regular running shoes. But take it from me: I had to stand up a few extra times, if you know what I mean. Ouch.

If I were a regular, I'd start by getting a pair of padded shorts, and then eventually get shoes. I didn't feel like my shoes caused any discomfort, but then I've never worn bike shoes.

Muscles worked: Cardio ("your aerobic engine," Hoh calls it), legs.

What I loved: Wow, time flew by.

This concept could easily be abused as a way to cheat on a workout (envision the people pretending to work out, standing on a treadmill watching TV and checking Facebook on their phones). But because it is so well structured, it does the exact opposite.

The songs' cadence and energy levels match the demands of the drills. The occasional clip from SNL is a welcomed -- but only fleeting -- escape, while you catch your breath. I found myself barely able to pay attention to the TV, but appreciating its support and encouragement. I mean, something about watching Kid Rock scream across the stage will get my legs moving and heart rate up, anyway.

And yes, Hoh takes music requests.

I also appreciated how much time Hoh spent with me and the other new students before class, making sure we were set up perfectly on our bikes and understood how to use the console, and checking on our personal needs. He checked in with us a few times throughout class, too. This helped me feel confident, comfortable and safe.

If I gave out stars, I'd give him five stars as an instructor.

What I didn't like: This is not a problem; just something to know before you arrive. If you enter from Main Street, the check-in room is in the back. I walked around a little confused when I first arrived, and if you are already nervous about trying a new class, this might put you off a little. Now you know.

How I felt after the class: I had to go home and immediately shower and change my clothes, due to their immense wetness. My legs felt charged up and powerful. And maybe most importantly, my brain felt happy and relaxed. I was afraid that hardcore cardio would increase my cortisol levels after an already stressful day, but instead, I felt relieved and reset.

Also, I burned nearly 400 calories, according to my bike.

Don't Get Healthy, Be Healthy - I Wish I Had Known Sooner!

 

In 2012, I opened BreakAway Cycle & Strength Studio here in Longmont.  I’ve so enjoyed the process, and have been thrilled with the way our clients have embraced the studio.  Our reviews are positive and our regular clients are seeing great results!  At BreakAway we run classes that are not only fun, but that allow for very easy goal setting and tracking, I believe that this, along with our stellar coaching, is what compels or clients to keep coming back!

Recently, I read this article, and was surprised to find out that, while Colorado boasts the lowest obesity rates in the country when it comes to adults, we sadly rank 23rd in the country for childhood obesity!  14.2% of our kids (under 18 years) are obese! 

Fitness is what I do, it’s how I try to make the world a better place.  So, when I read this and thought about the fact that I rarely see this under 18 year age group in the studio, I decided it was time to do something about it.

Unfortunately, I know from personal experience how critical it is to develop healthy patterns early on.  I didn’t develop the right patterns, and it took me years to get back to a healthy place.   Before I hit my teens, I was incredibly active, I could eat whatever I wanted, and so I did.  My favorite (almost daily) treat was a 5th Avenue candy bar (usually 2)!  As I got older, I began to gain weight and I dealt with the low self-esteem that goes along with weight issues.  I withdrew from sports, I withdrew from friends, I didn’t date, I struggled with eating disorders, and I was so completely consumed by all of my problems and obsessions, that I missed many opportunities that would never come my way again.  I was living such an unhealthy life!  And, although I steer away from regret, I can admit that the memories I have of that time in my life are not the one’s that I should have.  It took a complete shift of focus for me in my mid-20s to finally set things right. 

I am not unique in my struggles, I know many of us have been through the same, and maybe even still haven’t found balance and peace.  I don’t believe it has to be this way.  I think we can influence our kids early on to make good nutritional choices and to find activities that will increase not only their health and fitness, but that will offer them a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence.  Most of all, these activities will become habits that they’ll carry on with them into adulthood.  Learning to correct bad habits is just so much more difficult that starting out with healthy habits right from the start.    

On Wednesday nights from 4:30p-7:30p,  through the summer, please drop your kids off at BreakAway ($12) for some healthy fun.  Each week will include a 35-minute ride, or we’ll bring in guest instructor, Tracy, to lead us through a POUND class (drumming fitness).  We’ll follow that up with about 30 minutes of resistance training using bodyweight or light free weights.  After a 1-hour workout, there will be the option to stay for a feature movie on our HD projector or a free-style dance party.    

Of course, fitness is just one aspect of a healthy life, but it’s a great first step, and when done on a regular basis, it can have a positive affect on every other decision that our kids make.
