Fitness-conscious guests will get the ultimate adrenaline rush on Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway as they step into the authentic Flywheel Sports® cycling studios on board our newest ships. Flywheel is New York City’s revolutionary, high-energy indoor cycling studio, and is now the newest addition to the ships’ state-of-the art fitness center complexes. FlyWheel is a high-tech indoor cycling studio, named “Best Fitness Classes in NYC” by Daily Candy, that has quickly become a fitness phenomenon nationwide, including in New York City and Miami Beach.
In each class, highly motivational instructors lead the way, suggesting target resistance levels and RPM’s for each rider to strive for. But ultimately, the riders decide how far they want to push themselves by controlling the proprietary technology on their individual bikes, arranged in stadium-style seating. Each ride leaves the participants feeling energized, and motivates them to ride harder and faster than they ever thought they could.
An amazing escape that challenges the body and relaxes the mind, Flywheel classes are fully choreographed by certified instructors and taught in a dimly lit studio, giving riders the opportunity to get lost in their workout and push themselves to the limit. Every ride is set to an incredible heart-pumping custom playlist created by the instructors from a collection of music carefully curated by Flywheel’s in-house DJ and rides are synchronized to the intoxicating beats. The 45- or 60-minute class includes “climbs” and “descents,” along with an upper body workout utilizing weighted bars that are attached to each bike.
Unlike bikes in other indoor cycling classes, the custom Flywheel bikes are tailor-made and feature proprietary performance tracking technology. Guests can set the positions that fit their body and comfort levels, from which they can best control their “tech-pack,” an exclusive Flywheel feature, that displays the rider’s resistance (“torq”), speed (RPM’s) and power output (current and cumulative for the class), allowing riders to stay aware of their performance at all times. Riders with a competitive edge can even opt in to participate in the in-studio “Torqboards,” large, flat-screen displays that occasionally flash leaderboards that show how each rider is performing in relation to others in the class.
Now, the fitness phenomenon that is “all the rage” in New York City and Miami will be available to guests on board our new, innovative ships, giving guests a fitness experience unlike any other! Get ready to FLY!
