Virtual Group Cycle Classes

We run our Virtual Group Cycle classes when members ask for them and it's super simple to get a class running for you!

Just ask at Reception if we can put one on, it takes 2 minutes to set up!

You can ask for a 30 minute class or a 45 minute class

We have two types of Virtual classes -

  • Scenery classes where your taken to different parts of the world climbing mountains, on flat roads through mix terrain and flat desert scenes. 
  • Coach Ride where a Virtual Instructor is on the screen coaching you through a class

So just ask at Reception and your class will be set-up for you.  This can be done when the 'live' Group Cycle classes are not running so please check the timetable to see when these are scheduled.

Coach by Colour

Experience a New Era in Indoor Cycling
with Club Kingswood


 

Coach by Colour

Only few people have sufficient knowledge of watts and heart rate based training.  For the majority, it is only an additional number on the display, making training even more complicated.  ICG's answer is not only to illustrate training in numbers, but working with colour to guide us.

Colour is universal.  Red means "hot" and blue means "cool" in just about every culture.  The colours behind the unique Coach By Colour® concept makes it easier and fun to interpret the numbers and integrate it in your training.

The Coach By Colour® training guide, provides individual training intensity based on watts or heart rate performance in 5 Coloured training zones (white, blue, green, yellow and red) displayed through the WattRate® computer, based on the individual FTP value, respectively the maximum heart rate value.  Ensuring that power and heart rate based training, are easily and quickly applicable for pros and beginners whether training alone or in a group.

ICG® TRAINING APP

ICG® TRAINING APP

The ICG® Training App provides digital Coach by Colour® workouts, developed by the ICG® Master Trainers who guarantee a high quality and motivating training guide.

Depending on the training aim, different workouts can be selected or even created.  Colour match - during the workout, the Colour on the WattRate® computer must be matched with the workout displayed on your phone.  Via Bluetooth it is now possible to load personal data from the ICG® Training App on to the WattRate® computer as well as saving and storing data of individual workouts.

Indoor Cycling Fascination

Indoor Cycling Fascination

Anyone can ride a bike - regardless of age, weight or individual fitness level.  With Indoor Cycling, workload is controlled through the individual resistance level being applied, therefore everyone can train according to their own fitness level and pace.  Indoor Cycling is the ideal cardio training, hardly any other sport burns as many calories as a good session on a bike.

Not only will all those calories melt way, many muscle groups get simultaneously trained; thighs, glutes, abdominal and also arm muscles.  Moreover, Indoor Cycling is significantly joint-friendly in comparison to other endurance sports, meaning less stress on the knees and hips are exerted.

Indoor Cycling is more than just cycling.  Experienced trainers define goals with training zones, motivational music and a contagious group dynamic that quickly creates enthusiasm and fun in every session - an Indoor Cycling class keeps you motivated making you fitter.  Faster.


 

Getting Prepared

Getting prepared for your ultimate cycling experience class:
  • Bring a towel and enough to drink.
  • Use footwear with a hard sole - the best option would be to wear cycling shoes with an SPD system.
  • Wear tight shorts or cycling shorts (with seat cushion).
  • Ideally use a chest belt heart rate monitor.

Indoor Cycling Benefits

Power Training

Power Training

As heart rate is influenced by different factors (among others nutrition, health, daily current bodily condition), the competitive sports training field have oriented themselves to a power-based training (measurings in watts).  Even in Indoor Cycling, power training has become increasingly important, for this reason the new Life Fitness Powered By ICG® Indoor Cycles both measure and display wattage ratings on the WattRate® computer during a power training session.

One of the key values for power-based training is the Functional Threshold Power (FTP).  FTP is the maximal power output that can be sustained for the duration of one hour, the classic time trial.  The higher the FTP is, the stronger the athlete, with workouts recorded as a percentage of FTP.  Moreover, the value is also used to determine the individual Coach by Colour® training zones making your workouts more individualised to your own fitness level.  No more wasting time or trying to keep up with your trainer - your workouts just got personal.


 

Functional Threshold Power

The Life Fitness Powered By ICG® Indoor Cycle in your studio offers the possibility to determine your own FTP value with the WattRate® computer by doing an 'FTP Test'.  The FTP Test is used to help measure a user's fitness level and establish their 5 Coach By Colour® training zones.  This allows every individual in a class to train to their own fitness capabilities by using their unique FTP value.

HOW DOES THE FTP TEST WORK?
Every 4 minutes the WATTs target will increase 25 watts, all the rider has to do is "keep it green" for as long as they can.

The aim is to stay within the specified range for as long as possible (+/- deviation of the required value).  Green indicates that the user is within the required range.  If the screen turns red, the deviation from the target value is too high.  At the end of the FTP test, the personal FTP value is determined.

Some of our reviews

  • I love eGYM it is very addictive and takes your mind off of the exercise.  All you are intent on is collecting all the coins and climbing the ranking order.  When everyone follows the rules it works really well.  Keep up the good work Club Kingswood.
    Maureen Beasley - eGym
  • eGYM is a great way to return to the gym - all levels of fitness are catered for.  My daughter has cerebral palsy and is loving the independence of using the equipment on her own.  Once induction has been completed.  The equipment sets its self for your personal fitness level.  Using the eGYM app is encouraging me to keep attending the gym.
    Amanda Lowry - eGym
  • I love eGYM!! It has shown me what I need to do for a full body work out as I wasn't very confident beforehand.  Watching the progress on the app is great too! Given me new motivation for the gym!
    Gemma Hills - eGym
  • I would 100% recommend the eGYM to those people that are unsure about weight training.  I didn't like using the main gym as I found it a little intimidating.  eGYM gives you access to weight machines in a pleasant environment.  It's so easy to use as you login each machine with your personal wristband so the machine sets itself up with the correct weight for you.  This is all done during the induction process.  I've noticed a positive change in my shape and feel much stronger than before.  Would highly recommend to all ages.
    Lynda Ireland - eGym
  • After having my induction and given instructions on how to use each machine, I am loving it.  I always found using free weight machines difficult to use and was unsure if the reps and weights were correct.  eGYM has done it all for me! There is always a goal, whether it's catching the coins, reducing biological age, losing weight and gaining strength or just improving my ranking.  Love it!
    Tina Lovell - eGym
  • Brilliant.  After 4 weeks have noticed a marked improvement on sugar levels being a Type 2 diabetic.
    Margaret Bond - eGym
  • We are really enjoying using the eGYM! Due to its personalised set up, it is a very convenient, quick, effective and easy way to work out.
    Alan and Jyotee - eGym
  • Since start using the eGYM in June I have found It becoming addictive and wanting to go back for more.  It has certainly encouraged me to do more regular weight exercises and helped me get back on track with a fitness programme.  I have also found the equipment preset up allows me to get on and off machines more freely and the set weight allows me to progressively increase my workout the more I use it.  The muscle imbalance section is also very helpful to understand specific areas I need to concentrate on.
    David Parsons - eGym
  • The eGYM has really motivated myself and my husband to come to the gym more regularly.  We are both pleased with our increased strength and it has taken the boredom out of our previous routines.  eGYM is easy to use since each machine sets itself to our personal requirements and it incorporates a balanced set of exercises.
    Sue Drew - eGym
  • eGYM is brilliant.  It's fun and enjoyable it's like playing a game.  It doesn't feel like you are working out as such as your mind is on catching all the coins.  I am enjoying working out more and wanting to come to the gym more often.
    Rebecca Payne - eGym
  • In these busy days it's hard to fit in a fitness routine.  But I find eGYM is the answer.  A complete body workout in half an hour.  I go twice a week and do 2 circuits each time.  I am stronger and my body is more toned in only 1 hour a week.  No waiting for any of the equipment, as everybody moves round at the same pace.
    Gillian Hough - eGym
  • eGYM is brilliant.  No more setting up machines which I have sometimes found difficult.  No distractions whilst working out.  Great when time is short and now able to combine with virtual Body Balance.  Really looking forward to my next session.  Thanks Club Kingswood
    Sylvie Salt - eGym
  • Not being a confident gym user the eGYM is an absolute gem.  I was given an induction and now confidently use the eGYM equipment with no issues.  I love the app showing me muscle areas of strength and muscle areas to focus on.  The fact that it is timed and everyone follows the system, makes the use of the equipment very easy and enjoyable to use.
    Nicola Sansom - eGym
  • The introduction of eGYM at Club Kingswood has been a great introduction to weight training for me.  I have shied away from the machines in the past as I could never remember all the different weight settings and was always worried that my reps were too fast.  eGYM has taken away all off this away and is a simple and easy way of approaching training.  In fact, you can't keep me away!
    Russell Smith - eGym
  • I'm not much of a gym bunny as I prefer racket sports[;] but I was intrigued by what the eGYM could offer me.  So glad I signed up[;] it's a perfect workout for me as I don't have to do anything (apart from the exercise!).  I love that it sets the seat and weight for me and I know that I can do 2 circuits in less than half an hour.  The whole family have now signed up to it and love it too.
    Kerry - eGym
  • Club Kingswood have helped me achieve amazing results over the last couple of years.  The staff are all helpful and so friendly.  The classes are superb and are made fun to attend.  You would not get this service from any other gym.
    Glenn Burton
  • Fantastic club with top quality staff something for everyone of all fitness levels.  Would highly recommend.  The card system is a great idea and a massive thank you to Jason who in 3 months has helped me to lose nearly 2 stone and 10% body fat, great club.
    Jay Lengthorn
  • My partner and I have been going to this gym for years and would highly recommend it.  The staff are very friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble and we would not want to join one of these large gyms with no atmosphere.  The restaurant is also nice with good food and relaxing.  I also use the beauty area Tranquility & Donna Marie nails of which I recommend.  Go along and try it out you will not be disappointed.
    Glynis Newman
  • Top class gym with top class staff and friendly members.  None of that egotistical rubbish either.  It has a very good range of machines and free weights and there is always someone on hand to advise on anything you've not tried before.  There are a good range of classes each week for the newbies to the super fit.  The club has an excellent restaraunt/bar on site and squash/tennis courts for the more strenuous workouts.  Not forgetting the therapy/beauty suite, sunbed, pool, the sauna and steamroom Club Kingswood has pretty much everything for the novice right the way up to the more hardcore exercisers.  Most def an easy recommendation to make!
    Mark Nixon
  • Love love love Club Kingswood I've finally found a gym that suits me, with plenty of evening classes and very friendly staff and members.
    Kaye Lawson
  • We have been using this club from last few years.  It has seven squash courts.  A Gym which is divided in different areas for different levels.  A awesome restaurant which server one of the best Chicken Burgers I have ever had.  A tennis court and a small Swimming pool.  My kids love the place.  We really feel welcomed.  The staff are very friendly and always smiling.  Very nice club for a happy healthy life.
    Vivek Marwah
  • Been a member for years...  absolutely love it :-)
    The instructors and other members of staff are always so helpful :-)
    Jennifer Johnson
  • Great club - best in the area and we've tried them all over the years.  Real personal touch....
    Justin Walton
  • Just a quick thank you for all the staff running the function room on Saturday for our engagement party which helped the evening flow with no hitches! They couldn't have been more helpful and so many compliments on how nice the venue was too!
    Anon
  • I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a massive thank you to you for all your help sorting out the venue for my 50th party on Saturday.  The room was absolutely fantastic, with the sun and the balcony making it even more special.  I also want to say a massive thank you to the staff who took care of us on the day/night, they were absolutely amazing, and all of our guests haven't stopped talking about how much they enjoyed the party and how fantastic the venue was.
