Though fall officially starts in just a couple of short weeks, most DC residents know that early September often brings the hottest days of summer. To break a sweat without getting heat stroke, it’s a great time to check out one of MINT’s studio classes. MINT RIDE and Rhythm Ride, MINT’s signature cycling classes, are offered almost every day of the week.
Cycling is an incredible, low-impact workout that has full-body benefits. The stationary bike uses your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves, helping strengthen and tone the entire lower body. To remain stable on the bike, you must activate your core and back muscles that help with balance, stability, and posture. The consistent cardio of cycling improves oxygen flow throughout your body, benefitting the heart and lungs.
Along with the other exciting improvements to MINT comes a brand new mural in the cycling studio by DC-based artist Kelly Towles. Featuring a MINTy green background, bright figures on bikes, and a reminder to “enjoy the ride,” the artwork adds exciting energy to MINT’s indoor cycling classes. Kelly’s work can be spotted on walls throughout DC, so keep an eye out for other cool murals by her, and be sure to check out her piece at MINT next time you take a class!
