Life as a parent is, in a word, unpredictable. Flying by the seat of your pants is a style you are accustomed to, but it can make it hard to make time for a workout.

Enter on-demand classes with Power Ryde.

On-demand workouts are fantastic because they not only let you have a fulfilling workout whenever you want it, but they also give you access to Power Ryde's entire on-demand video library.

The online library contains over 100 workout videos, and five new videos are added weekly.

What benefits can Power Ryde’s online library offer you over working out alone?

This post will go over a few key reasons that serious stationary cyclers prefer a guided workout on a Real Ryder bike overworking by themselves.


On-demand workouts are most popular with parents.

Why? Because an on-demand workout offers maximum flexibility and meshes well with busy schedules.

Let’s examine how the on-demand workout benefits this group.

Parents Perform Better with Structured Work Outs

The life of every parent is different, but every parent reports high levels of stress and chaos.

On top of their responsibilities to their children, parents also must work full-time jobs, prepare meals, run errands, and more. To say that free time is lacking is an understatement.

So how can parents be expected to attend regular classes when their time demands are so great? In short, they can't.

Here are some things we have observed in the typical parental lifestyle.

  • There is no day-to-day regular. 6 PM might be open on one Tuesday, but not the next. Regular classes simply do not work.

  • They put their children’s needs ahead of their own. Parents are so busy taking their children to extracurriculars that they neglect their own health.

  • Most of their free time comes in the early morning before their children arise or in the later evening when their children go to bed. When is the last time you've seen a stationary bike class at 11 PM?

Because parents have to focus on raising one or more children, they cannot pledge their time to a regular class. The on-demand option is perfect because they can choose when they want to work out and for how long.

Power Ryde and parenthood is a match made in heaven.

Check out what other satisfied parents have said.

Shannon Cameron:

“The virtual workouts have been a saving grace during the quarantine. I tried other online workouts and they were either too easy, overly produced, or just too cheesy! Casey's workouts are authentic and you feel like you are in the studio with her. I love doing them from my home when I am not comfortable going to the gym and it's a nice option when my kid's schedules get in the way of working out since you have the choice to do them live or at your convenience at a later time. I know I will always be challenged and won't be wasting my time! Thanks for helping make this crazy time a little easier!”

Sheryl Wiener:

“I just wanted you to know how much I love your virtual strength classes.  I try to do them at least 3 times a week, and often my girls join me to do the classes together.  I love the workouts, they are always different, challenging, and keep me in great shape. I also enjoy doing them at home, when the timing works for me. Please continue these classes, because I look forward to doing them often.”

Suzanne Moore:

“Virtual off the bike classes are the best!! These classes are one of my favorite things that came out of this pandemic! I quit my current gym membership and have no plans to return to my normal routine. You instruct the most effective workouts! Your energy and enthusiasm make exercise enjoyable. So much so, that my 14-year-old daughter ASKS (without any prompting) to “do a Casey class”. This is a teenager who dislikes ANY physical activity!! We always laugh at your comments like “you’ll get over it”.  

We love working out with you so much that we are taking you abroad!! We are moving to Geneva, Switzerland in a few weeks! Your classes are going international! 

Thank you for everything you do! I appreciate how hard you work!”
