What led you to become an indoor cycling coach? Initially, it was just to prove people wrong – to show it could be done. I’d always been active: I was a wheelchair racer from the age of eight to 15 years and even beat Paralympic gold medallist David Weir once, although it was a bit of a fluke! “I was previously a wheelchair racer and even beat Paralympic gold medallist David Weir once!” I was working as a personal trainer at Aspire Leisure Centre in the UK when, in 2009, they introduced indoor cycling and asked who’d be interested in teaching it. They weren’t sure if someone in a wheelchair ..read more

Monika Björn Author | Lecturer | Menopause activist | Fitness trainer Monika Björn wants to help clubs understand their perimenopausal members The first thing to understand is that perimenopausal women make up a huge group of your members, yet even they don’t really understand what they’re going through. Nobody talks about perimenopause! Whether you’re an operator, instructor, woman – or someone who wants to support a woman – the first step is therefore to educate yourself. For many women, the symptoms of perimenopause can be crippling: hot flashes might be the most famous symptom, but not al ..read more

The Los Angeles Convention Center played host to LES MILLS LIVE in July – a high-energy event where, in front of a huge audience of ticket holders and Les Mills community members, the global group exercise giant filmed its latest releases, including the 100th release of RPM. Glen Ostergaard (wearing a cap) has designed every RPM release since #26 “We celebrated RPM100 in style,” says Les Mills programme director Glen Ostergaard. “We had 175 BODY BIKES in the room, a great crew on-stage, the event was sold out, and everyone was really into it and there for the right reasons: to celebrate and ha ..read more

What’s your cycling background? I was a professional cyclist when I was younger, in the German national youth team from the age of 16, competing on the road, in the velodrome, on mountain bikes. I also embraced indoor cycling, starting out as a participant in 2011 before becoming an instructor in 2017. Then something happened that made indoor cycling even more important to me. In 2018, I had a serious bike accident outdoors, breaking my arms and my knee and only surviving because I was wearing a helmet. I lost the confidence to cycle outside. Sophie Joline Fischer turned to indoor cycling as h ..read more

Measuring sustainability
Ride High Magazine

How sustainable can fitness equipment become – not just in the way it’s powered, but in its very fabric? What can we do within our manufacturing? How can we push the boundaries of the raw materials we use? These are just some of the questions we’ve been asking ourselves at BODY BIKE for a number of years now, and many of you will be familiar with the results so far: our sustainable siblings, BODY BIKE Smart+ OceanIX and BODY BIKE Smart+ Forest Green. Let me quickly make clear that I’m not here to push these products. I’m here to champion a cause that I passionately believe everyone in the sect ..read more

How did you come to work together? RB: As a university student, I lacked a real sense of purpose in life and decided to run for student president. I never expected to win, but I did, and as part of the duties I attended a seminar where Fatima was guest speaker. Her words were captivating. There and then, I said to myself: ‘One day, I’m going to work with Fatima.’ From that moment on, I followed her – I pretty much stalked her! – and my determination paid off. Within a year, we were working together. FB: She was very persistent, coming to the gym and the classes I was teaching. This was in 2012 ..read more

What’s the story of Fusion? In 1999, Danish brothers Mads and Per Nissen founded Fusion in a bid to change the status quo of sportswear. In the mid-90s, they had operated a sports shop where they faced two major challenges: firstly, product lines were very fashion-focused – they wanted more focus on functionality and technology – and second, it was a supplier-led industry where large pre-orders had to be placed many months in advance, tying up retailers’ liquidity. Focusing initially on the triathlon world they themselves knew, they began to develop their own high-performance sportswear with a ..read more

Motosumo: A mobile democracy “We don’t see our app totally replacing consoles,” say Allan Steen Olesen and Kresten Juel Jensen, co-founders of Motosumo. “However, we do believe it’s time to do things differently in indoor cycling, and consoles just can’t match what you can do on a smartphone any more, either visually or in terms of interaction, gamification and social connection. Motosumo offers plenty of scope for interaction, with polls and emojis to see how participants are feeling “Behaviours also continue to evolve. When we launched in 2017, people said members would never bring their pho ..read more
