Step Into Our Reality...
Oxford Athletic Club is proud to announce the grand opening of their new immersive indoor cycling studio featuring THE TRIPTM by Les Mills, an exclusive cutting-edge fitness experience offered in only eleven premium fitness clubs in the country.
Since its acquisition by new ownership in May of 2017 Oxford has undergone a multi-million-dollar renovation project to upgrade the facility. Oxford’s recent renovations include a number of new studios that feature state-of-the-art technologies, such as infrared heat panels, neuromuscular training equipment, three-dimensional body scanning, and facial recognition software. All of these enhancements are designed to support the next generation of fitness and safety for club members. No longer are consumers focused on trends, but on science-based and long-term ways of maintaining health and wellness goals. THE TRIP by Les Mills is just that – living proof that science and technology can aid in forming lifelong commitments to fitness that incorporate new and exciting challenges along the way to retain engagement. Oxford has exclusive rights to the program within a 25-mile radius until 2020.
THE TRIP is a fully immersive workout experience that combines a 40-minute multi-peak cycling workout with a journey through digitally-created worlds. With its cinema-scale screen and sound system, THE TRIP takes motivation and energy output to the next level, burning serious calories. Members of Oxford will now travel through the streets, tunnels, hills and jungles of virtual worlds. Not only does this make each class a unique visual and audial experience, it allows participants to incorporate core and upper body strength to their routine, and actually increases the amount of effort each rider puts into their workout without even realizing it due to the cinematic altered reality. Riders take tight curves, climb hills and jump cliffs while safely riding on a stationary machine in a controlled environment.
“We are very excited to be selected as one of the few premier locations in the U.S.,” shares Jackie Frederick, Assistant General Manager of Oxford Athletic Club. “My career in fitness began with my passion for indoor cycling and I have always valued Les Mills and the innovative people and products they bring to market. THE TRIP is exactly what our members crave to take their workouts to the next level. It is unlike anything else you’ve ever seen before.” Les Mills screens and certifies only premium instructors to represent their brand. Oxford is proud to share that 100% of all staffed cycling instructors are Les Mills certified and specialize in THE TRIP immersive experience.
“Oxford is changing the future of the health club industry and redefining what it means to live an elevated lifestyle,” says Andrew Wilen of Les Mills. Mr. Wilen has been a critical element in the development and expansion of this program for Les Mills. “Oxford is the 73rd studio in the world to bring the future of fitness to their members. We believe this program is not only more challenging and dynamic for our advanced riders, but also offers a unique introductory experience for those who are interested in trying indoor cycling for the first time. This opens the door to a broader group of people looking to take their health seriously in the new year.”
Specially designed for our state-of-the-art immersive cycling classes, Ride has the best bikes and the most experienced trainers to aid you in your success. This studio offers Les Mills' THE TRIP, which combines an energetic 40-minute multi-peak cycling experience with virtual reality technology that will catapult you into another world!
