FIRST CLASS Q&A – What should I wear?
Proper cycling shoes with clips are recommended as well as cycling shorts or pants with a chamois. If you don’t have the padded shorts or pants Capri’s length pants are best so that they don’t get caught in the pedals.
Should I show up early for class?
It is a good idea to show up at least 5-10 minutes before the scheduled class, especially for the beginner class to ensure all forms have been filled out and that you are properly set up on the bike.
What if I’m worried I won’t keep up with the class?
The best part about the classes is that you can work at whatever pace you like. You are welcome to take part in our beginner classes, or make sure you tell the teacher it is your first time. We are here to make sure your first experience is the best it can possibly be.
What can I expect after the first class?
Because indoor cycling is a unique form of exercise where you will likely sweat more then usual it is extremely important to replenish your bodily fluids with lots of water and electrolytes. Your body will take a few classes to get used to the positioning on the saddle and you may feel some discomfort – don’t worry! This is normal, everyone has it. Push through the first few times and you won’t look back!

Milates™ is a unique program that was designed, built and implemented by Mila to improve posture and allow for enhanced balance, coordination, strength and endurance. When she first created the Milates™ program, Mila sought to unify movements and exercises incorporated in Pilates, Aerobics, Strength Training, Core Stabilization and Yoga to create a program that would weave the best of these regimens while at the same time re-balancing and re-aligning the body towards its optimal natural state. Milates™ is unlike any other program currently available because every class is different and includes a full, core body workout that also targets specific muscles to improve posture and shape, enhance strength and endurance, and most importantly of all – achieve optimal weight loss.
