Instructor-led Classes

All of our Indoor Cycling Instructors will be trained directly by Stages so they can help you get the most out of the new bikes. There are lots of great features that members will be able to enjoy and benefit from so you'll definitely see the content and style of the classes adapt as everyone learns how to use the new bikes. See below for more information on the Stages SC3 bike.

The Sufferfest Sessions



The Sufferfest creates the world’s best cycling, running and triathlon videos for individual and group fitness training. Every video features officially licensed footage from professional races like the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and UCI World Championships, creating an extraordinary experience guaranteed to engage, challenge and entertain riders of all levels.

Our Sufferfest sessions will generally be Instructor-less, however the immersive videos are guided, motivational and hugely engaging. You'll definitely be back for more!



Open Sessions

We are now adding Open Sessions to the programme when you'll be able to use The Zone for your own training. These sessions will be Instructor-less but can have music to keep you motivated. Members will be able bring in and potentially connect up their own training devices for these sessions. More information and ideas on what you'll be able to do in the Open Sessions will be available in The Zone when it opens.

Information about our new Stages SC3 bikes

Stages Cycling provide power meters to the pro and amateur cycling industry, including Team Sky. Our bikes will be the top of the range model; the SC3! This opens up many new ways we can run our classes using speed, cadence and power, giving members more specific training to work to, resulting in bigger benefits. All bikes will have the Stages EcoSCRN so members can get immediate feedback on their effort on the bike.

In addition to what's on the bike, members will be able to connect their own devices to the SC3, such as a Garmin Edge, to record their rides and upload to a fitness app such as Strava. Members will also be able to connect cycling video training apps, such as Sufferfest, to the SC3 during one of our Open Sessions which are a new option on our updated programme.
