New Worcestershire UK-based online spin and fitness studio, Hypervelo, is one of the first clubs in the UK to offer live streamed Les Mills classes.
Launching 8.30am Saturday 3rd October, Les Mills RPM and Bodybalance fitness class firm favourites of participants worldwide will be available to all Hypervelo members via Zoom with more Les Mills classes to come in over the next few months.
Only a handful of clubs have been granted the live streaming partnership with Les Mills which now completes Hypervelo’s timetable of more than 20 interactive and on-demand fitness studio classes.
Fitness instructors Sharron Manders and Jane White set up Hypervelo at the height of the Covid 19 pandemic to help people keep fit and healthy at home during the lockdown. Membership has grown rapidly through recommendations from their core following and many participants have enjoyed staying fit, safe and socially connected so much that they have chosen to continue their Hypervelo home fitness membership despite gyms reopening. This trend is in line with Les Mills’ own research that attitudes to working-out are changing as 80% of gym-goers are now choosing to exercise at home.
Stuart Hyde, Hypervelo member, has decided not to return to the gym. He said “Hypervelo’s classes are full of motivation, energy, fun and great music. They have transferred all of those characteristics of a physical spin studio to online in a way I didn’t think was possible”. They are supportive and encouraging you all the way through a class and push you to reach your fitness goals at your pace. You will honestly wonder why you hadn’t joined in sooner!”
Linda Chen recommended Hypervelo to her friends. She said, “These classes are amazing, really friendly, good fun, hard work but above all for me personally, inclusive. As someone with a disability, joining exercise classes is often hard, Jane and Sharron sensitively teach and demonstrate alternatives and options , the option to fail is never given. My fitness, mobility and confidence has improved over the time I have been attending these on line classes. They are both very motivational it is impossible to leave a class without a smile. I love seeing everyone on screen.”
Hypervelo co-owner Sharron Manders, who represents Great Britain in European and World Sprint Duathlon, said “We are passionate about cycling, spin and fitness and set up Hypervelo at the start of lockdown to help keep people motivated and working towards their fitness goals. What’s unique about us is that all our classes are live streamed so we are able to interact with participants and offer the same coaching and technique feedback as if they were in the studio with us.”
Jane White, co-owner and instructor across the Hypervelo blended mix of programmes said, “It’s as important as ever for people to stay healthy and feeling connected to a community and having fun while you’re getting fit is even better for the soul. Hypervelo is focussed on offering our members a range of fitness and flexibility classes and Les Mills is the perfect partner for our whole-body conditioning approach.”
