Will you lead the pack, or bring up the rear? Cyclists who saddle up in Technogym’s new Group Cycle studio at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas will discover how they stack up to their fellow athletes while immersed in pulse-pumping music and virtual video—depicting trail and road rides—as they pedal through a trainer-led workout.
Cyclists can input personal stats like weight and age into the Italian fitness brand’s cloud-based app, which can be synced to the bike. During the workout, a person’s heart rate, RPMs, and the energy in watts they generate are displayed on an LCD screen on the bicycle’s console as well as on a screen visible to all participants and the instructor, a feature that allows riders to monitor their efforts and trainers to track an individual’s progress and provide direct encouragement. Each bike is made with smooth-spinning flywheels, a magnetic resistance mechanism, ergonomically correct handles to help prevent back and shoulder strain, and a moisture-resistant coating that prohibits rust formation. »fourseasons.com
