Gym-goers are in for a spin after 26 highly sophisticated exercise bikes were delivered to Thomastown Recreation and Aquatic Centre (TRAC).
TRAC is the first Victorian centre – and only the second in the country – to receive the bikes.
The high-tech spin bikes are interactive and digitally connect to an app, which allows trainers and participants to track progress.
They also offer a real road cycling sensation from the comfort of indoors.
Mayor Stevan Kozmevski said the bikes are available for use by members and visitors taking part in group cycling classes at TRAC.
“Not only do the bikes display traditional workout data to users, they connect to a group cycle app, which allows users to seamlessly track their performance long after they leave the gym, to help reach their fitness goals,” he said.
“The new technology also enables trainers to customise classes, so they can now see the workout rates of all participants from their instructor’s cycle out the front. Managing music, videos and microphone audio can now also be done with one touch.”
