- Output: How much effort you are putting into the class. You increase your output by increasing your cadence or resistance, or a combination of both.
- Cadence: How fast you are pedaling. It is measured in RPM’s (rotations per minute) Your instructor might suggest a cadence but it is always up to you. Do not pedal over 120 RPMS as this could potentially be unsafe. If you are able to pedal over 120 RPMs, you should increase your resistance
- Resistance: Your Connect bike has resistance levels of 1-32 (bike needs to be connected to app to see your resistance level). It is adjusted by turning the resistance knob on the frame of the bike. Turn to the right to increase and to the left to decrease. For example, if your instructor suggests that you are on a “hill”, you would turn your resistance knob to the right. For a recovery or a flat road you would turn your resistance to the left.
- Calories: We all know what these are! Your calorie burn will increase as your output increases.
I hope that this breakdown of what all the numbers mean on the class screen helps out new Echelon riders here.
