Performance Metrics and Tracking
Our in-studio leaderboards gives you the chance to compete against others and track your performance during class. But no pressure – participation is always optional! The leaderboards are not available at our Stittsville location, however you can download the ICG app to keep track of your rides and results.
The Zones are based on RPM (revolutions per minute), and change colour in class as your RPM changes. Another way to think of RPM is your speed.
- Grey: Zone 1 (0 to 40 RPM)
- Blue: Zone 2 (41 to 65 RPM)
- Green: Zone 3 (66 to 75 RPM)
- Orange: Zone 4 (76 to 90 RPM)
- Red: Zone 5 (91 to 300 RPM)
Effort points are earned based on the watts generated. They are also earned based on the time you spend in a given Zone. The more points generated, the higher you will be ranked.
