What is RPM?
RPM™ is a group indoor cycling workout where you control the intensity. It’s fun, low impact and you can burn up to 675 calories a session**.
With great music pumping and the group spinning as one, your instructor takes you on a journey of hill climbs, sprints and flat riding. In an RPM workout you repeatedly spin the pedals to reach your cardio peak then ease back down, keeping pace with the pack to lift your personal performance and boost your cardio fitness.
RPM is a great way to build up your sense of personal achievement. You can draw on the group’s energy and find your rhythm in the music. You control your own resistance levels and speed so you can build up your fitness level over time. It’s a journey, not a race!
RPM is literally easier than riding a bike
Born from the sport of cycle racing, RPM uses simulated climbs and sprints in a workout where you control the intensity.

Frequently asked -questions
Do I need any special cycling gear to do RPM?
RPM can be done in normal workout clothes and shoes, so no specialized cycling gear is required. Cycling shorts will make the ride more comfortable but they’re not essential. If you really want to look the part you can get the latest RPM gear from Reebok and Les Mills.
How often should I do RPM?
For awesome results, we recommend you do RPM 2 – 3 times per week.
I’m pregnant. Can I still do RPM?
Safety is our number one priority, so we recommend talking with your doctor or midwife who will advise you appropriately as they have the best knowledge of your medical history. Also, chat to your class instructor beforehand to let them know you’re pregnant. They’ll suggest some options for you throughout the class.
