Virgin Active brings Wattbike into new London club

Having already been installed at Virgin Active Classic Aldersgate and Virgin Active Twickenham, Wattbike is being introduced at Virgin Active's new flagship London club.

A dedicated zone of the club, at 200 Aldersgate, has seen the installation by Wattbike of eight of its group cycling machines to support a range of classes now being offered.

Wattbike enables each participant to train at the optimal level for their own personal fitness but within a motivating group training environment.

Classes are performed around key performance areas including power, heart rate and cadence, with data drawn from the on-board Wattbike Performance Computer displayed on a large screen to assess performance and communicate feedback to members.

With the fitness data provided, the feel of riding a real bike and the company's unique pedal technique analysis, Wattbike is seen by Virgin Active as bringing a new level of structured training to the club. The classes comprise a series of sessions with Wattbike-trained instructors and a range of specialised training and testing programs for cyclists and triathletes.

Company Details
Wattbike Ltd
Wattbike is the creator of the world’s most advanced and innovative indoor bikes, developed in association with world class athletes and scientists. The versatility and reliability of the Wattbike brand has made it the go-to indoor cycling range for all health and fitness needs.
