When was the last time you visited our fitness center here at Windsong Place Apartments? If it’s been awhile, you may have missed out on the newest addition to our array of fitness equipment. We are now featuring a Peloton Bike! That’s right, Peloton Bikes have found a home right here at Windsong Place Apartments in Williamsville, NY. We are excited to introduce these remarkable high-tech studio cycles at the fitness center. The Peloton Bike comes equipped with a 22” HD touchscreen which allows you to immerse yourself into the cycling experience, all on a schedule that works for you. Choose from 14 daily live classes select one of the 8,000+ on-demand classes for your workout that you can do anytime. Class times range from 5 to 120 minutes.

One of the features about the Peloton Bike that we know you’ll love includes tracking your progress — which provides detailed performance metrics to help you stay on track with your fitness program. Not only that, finding your favorite music genre, class type, and a NYC instructor is accomplished with a tap of the screen, so adjust all of them depending on what you’re in the mood for as you cycle.

We are excited for our residents to try out our Peloton Bike. How do you plan on incorporating cycling into your fitness routine? Here are four pointers to help you get started from Muscle & Fitness.

Foot position: If your bike has toe cages and straps, make sure the ball of your foot is aligned over the center of the pedal. This is the firmest, widest part of your foot and the most efficient and comfortable position. If you’re clipping in with bike shoes, make sure that the cleats are positioned so the ball of your foot is on the center of the pedal.

Saddle height: You can eyeball the saddle so it comes to about hip height, but a better way to tell if you’re at the right position is to get on the bike and rotate the pedals until one leg reaches the bottom of the pedal stroke. That leg should have about a 25- to 35-degree bend at the knee.

Saddle fore/Aft position: Sitting on the saddle, place your hands on the front handlebars; keep the pedals level. Look down: Your kneecap should be directly above the center of the pedal; adjust saddle accordingly to get there.

Handlebar height: Align handlebars close to seat height to limit the strain on your neck and back.

Of course, if the bike is being used when you arrive, our fitness center has plenty of other options to use too! We hope you have the opportunity to get in and workout this month. Thanks for taking time to read our post.
