Indoor Cycling Instructors Reveal Their Go-To Tricks for Powering Through Class

"'Getting in the zone' for me doesn't start when I clip into the pedals or press play on my first track. It's in the walk I take from my apartment to the studio. The moment I strap on my sneakers and plug in my headphones, I've totally committed to making the most of the 45-minute spin class. You're a lot less likely to optimize the physical and mental benefits of your workout when you're running through your To Do list or stressing over something that happened in work. Taking 10 to 20 minutes for yourself to clear your head before your sweat sesh can pay off tremendously." —Elyse Winer, Recycle Studio in Boston, MA

"I teach four 6 a.m. classes a week, so in the morning on my way to the studio, I usually drink a cold pressed juice. It's quick and easy energy to fuel my movement." —Lena Rakijian, R.D., The Handle Bar in Boston, MA

"Sitting in the front row of class automatically makes you more committed to the workout. When you're tired, you are way more likely to push through when you're visible to the instructor and the class than when you're hiding in the back." —Sydney Miller,SoulCycle in New York, NY
"Before every class, I take a couple minutes to set one achievable goal for myself (more specific than just finishing the workout or getting in a good sweat). Whether it's to improve my form in third position, engage my core more with every move, really push on hills, or fight the burn through each arm song, having a specific area of improvement to zero in on helps to power me through the ride. When I'm tired and ready to quit, I bring my attention back to my original goal—it always motivates me through the end of class." —Claire Harvey, Recycle Studio in Boston, MA

"Failing should not be a negative term, it's all a part of the process towards improvement. Don't hesitate to crank up that resistance or try a new movement. Worst-case scenario: You turn the resistance down if you can't keep up and make the adjustments to improve next time." —Candice Peak, The Handle Barin Boston, MA

"When I'm really struggling to keep my legs moving during an uphill climb, I think about how lucky I am to have a healthy body. I think about all physically disabled people who are unable to use their body to exercise. I dig in and power through without dropping resistance." —Darby Brender, Fusion Fitness in Kansas City, MO

"Drop your heels and work your upstroke, the lift of your leg, instead of just the push. This works your hamstrings and backside and balances lower body strength building." —Nicole Meline, Peloton Cycle in New York, NY
