If you haven't tried any of the new cardio and strength-training equipment, now's the time. Like anything new, it's good to have a professional show you how to use the equipment to get the most effective and safe workout. Don't be intimidated by the Expresso Interactive cycles. All fitness levels can choose an appropriate course, and you will be motivated, entertained, and work up a sweat on these virtual reality bikes! These bikes are located next to the Step Masters.
