Each October, Life Time Fitness holds a cycle competition to encourage members to take cycle classes offered at all of their locations nationwide.  Life Time's mission is to provide an entertaining, educational, friendly, and inviting, functional, and innovative experience of uncompromising quality that meets the health and fitness needs of the entire family.

And each October, my friends and I have a friendly competition to see who can take the most classes at our location at Life Time Athletic Atlanta.

October Themed Cycle Classes by Ryan Makely-Philips at Life Time Athletic Atlanta

Themed Cycle Classes

Throughout the cycle competition month, Ryan Makely-Philips, Life Time Athletic Atlanta's Boutique Cycle Manager, designed a lot of fun and creative-themed classes to encourage participation.  Themes included: a celebration of Pride Month, 80s Rock ‘n Roll, a tribute to Stranger Things, Halloween, and a Halloween Cycle Karaoke class led by Ryan and instructor Hallie Heller-Chase.

Cycle Competition Winners at Life Time Athletic Atlanta

Kendra Whittemore, Dave Bittenbender, and I rounded out the top three members with the most cycle classes at Life Time Athletic Atlanta with a combined total of 199 rides between us.  With an average of 20 miles “per ride” in each class, we averaged a grand total of 3,980 miles – the distance from Atlanta to Anchorage Alaska is just over 4,000 miles.  That is some pretty amazing mileage!

While this was probably a normal month for Dave as he is always focused on health and fitness as he is a USA Dragon Boat champion and current competitor in competitions around the world. Kendra and I biked around our work and family schedules to get as many classes in as we could.  We went a little crazy this year as Lifetime partnered with Sandals Resorts for the cycle competition. Talk about an incentive to do what we love – workout, feel great, and possibly win a Sandals Resorts vacation?  We went all in and gave it everything we could. At the end of the month, I completed 81 classes, Kendra came in a close second at 71 classes, and David with 47 classes.  Kendra wins the prize for most classes in one day as a few days she took five classes, whereas my limit was four.
