Celebrity Workouts IRL: The Smash A Record Spin Session
Bikes. Beats. Sweat!
Inspired by the British Cycling team smashing all the records at the Olympics this year, we wanted to get gold medal fit too! We learnt faster than Sir Bradley Wiggins whizzing round a velodrome, that a spin at Boom Cycle is no chill bike ride. It’s brutal, booming and very sweaty.
What exactly does it entail?
Boom Cycle is a “high energy, music focussed fitness experience.”
We dropped in for a pre-work sweat sesh at their Holborn studio. We collected our clip-in shoes, towels and for the next 45 minutes we SRSLY burnt some calories whilst listening to bangin' hip-hop beats.
It wasn’t just riding in rhythm to Fatman Scoop records as our toned AF instructor shouted at us to “Focus on our intentions!” You are made to stand up, sit down, do press-ups and lifts weights whilst straddling an exercise bike. INTENSE!
Why the celebs love it
David Beckham, Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga all love to squeeze in a cheeky spin class during their cray celeb schedules because it's the perfect quick exercise hit.
Boom Cycle is NOT a quiet ride through the countryside. It’s intense and hot and LOADS of fun. Afterwards (if you survive) you are left buzzing like an Olympic hero.
Could you move the next day?
I was satisfyingly sore. I had deep thigh burn and my arms couldn't even pick up an office donut...
