Vibration adds intensity to Indoor Cycling Classes

25 Mar 2024
Leap Fit Studio is the brainchild of husband and wife team JJ and Amy Jegede / Leap Fit Studio
Located in Dalston, in the London borough of Hackney, Leap Fit Studio is the brainchild of husband and wife team JJ and Amy Jegede – JJ a former Great Britain international and three-time British long jump champion, Amy a specialist in pre- and post-natal exercise.

Positioning itself as The Home of Progress, Leap Fit is a commercial studio that brings elite-level training to the masses. There’s a strong focus on results via tailored workouts, nutritional advice and personalised support.

Says JJ: “We’re predominantly a personal training studio specialising in 12-week transformations, but we also run daily 45-minute classes. These span a range of categories, from building muscle tone to shredding fat, reducing pain to improving cardiovascular health.

“Ours is a supportive environment, but at the same time we’re pushing to get the best from you and for you. We focus on transformation and continual progress, using functional training techniques to help you build muscle, lose weight and get your body primed for everyday life.”

Discovering the REV

A regular user of Power Plate® as an elite athlete – the platforms used for warm-ups, mobilisation, muscle activation and recovery – Jegede decided to learn more about the technology when he retired from his sport.

As a result, Power Plate now features prominently in his club, its whole body vibration platforms used for warm-ups, with clients who struggle with flexibility, and to increase the exercise challenge for more advanced clients.

Invited to take part in filming for the Power Plate REV™, Jegede was immediately won over by the new bike’s patented VibeShift™ Technology, which maximises workout intensity by delivering consistent, safe, precise vibration through the pedals.

“The moment I got on the REV, I knew it was going to be a game changer,” he says. “I never planned to have a cycle area at my gym, but this machine made me re-evaluate. I didn’t just want a couple of them on the gym floor. I wanted a whole studio.”

And so, in September 2023, Leap Fit Studios did exactly that, purchasing 13 of the new bikes and launching the world’s first REV studio in collaboration with Power Plate.

“Our vibration-enhanced Revolution classes now deliver group cycling with added revs, literally,” says Jegede. “Our members don’t just get a cardio workout but a strength one too. It’s one of our most effective classes, delivering 45 minutes of intense work that you can really feel.”

Increased muscle activation

That’s because, when compared to a traditional fitness bike, the REV increases calf activation by 43 per cent, hamstring activation by 144 per cent, quad activation by 167 per cent and glute activation by 138 per cent. Research by the Centre for Sports Science & Human Performance at the University of Greenwich, UK, also found that level 1 resistance with vibration on the REV is equivalent to level 5 resistance without vibration.

“The Power Plate REV is a wonderfully flexible product,” says Steve Wright, VP of Power Plate UK & EMEA. “It’s sold primarily as a performance bike for the gym floor, but the ability to switch in and out of vibration mode also makes it a great choice for a group cycle class with a difference.

“It’s the perfect fit for a studio such as JJ’s, where elite level expertise underpins the commercial delivery of performance training. It’s really exciting to be involved in a project where these two worlds overlap.

“We’re absolutely delighted to partner with Leap Fit Studio in the creation of this world-first group cycle concept.”

Results you can feel

Says Jegede: “I’m thrilled to bring this brand new concept to our members: a proven way to maximise muscle tone and performance gains from indoor cycling, all wrapped up in an engaging class format.

“Our members are loving it, to the point that one member had a birthday ride to celebrate her 30th and now she and her group of friends have a regular slot. It’s so different from other cycle classes that it’s becoming an event, not just a training session.

“We’ve found it a great foundation for those who initially struggle with our gym-based work, too. Cycling is a movement most people can do – you don’t have to modify it – and with REV working the muscles as well as the cardiovascular system, it’s a great way to build strength and flexibility before progressing to other workouts.”

He concludes: “The best way I can explain it: you get so much more workout for your money with the Power Plate REV. You’re doing a cycle class, but it’s amplified by the vibration. The sensation is like nothing you’ve tried before and you can feel the results.

“We’re incredibly proud to be the first studio in the world that’s doing this.”

Plans for the next 12 months
Over the last few years, our industry has seen major changes, with many new or emerging fitness trends coming to light. For Power Plate the main focus areas for the next twelve months in terms of growth will be centred around wellness, with an increased focus on recovery, biohacking, “exercise is medicine” and supporting customers with various campaigns to attract new / non members into facilities.

We are seeing a rapid increase in the number of recovery spaces being requested; this has led to collaborations with partners such as Indigo Fitness who developed a unique solution incorporating Power Plate for their recovery concept using a cleverly designed modular system for a well rounded, positive exercise experience.
