Dear PhinneyWood readers, as we wind down 2019 and start into 2020, we are going to take the time to highlight some of our incredible neighborhood businesses that make PhinneyWood what it is. We will return to regular news and events on Monday, January 6.
If spinning classes on stationary cycles are dependent on the energy of the instructor, then City Cycle is well on its way to becoming a phenomenon. Backed by throbbing, empowering pop music synched with a dazzling lighting display, City Cycle’s classes are part exercise, part rave dance party, and all joy.
They are also clearly believers in music as a vehicle for motivation, as instructors cue their rides to a loud and inspiring playlist that makes the minutes pass by quickly. Classes are held in a fairly dark environment, which is not only refreshing but also good for those of us who like to exercise in a somewhat anonymous fashion.
While the classes themselves are action-oriented, founder Lauren Perry states she purposely wanted to “slow things down” when it came to the experience of taking a cycling class. She always has someone at the front desk to greet and connect with riders, check them in, and ensure that they are prepared for the coming class. She believes fitness should be entertaining and accessible, and the environment at City Cycle is all this and more.
City Cycle is a community-driven studio that is dedicated to being fun and inclusive. Biking studios have popped up around the city in recent years, and many are dedicated to achievement and urgency. In City Cycle, Greenwood really has a resource for fitness without judgement or worries about performance. Your first ride at the studio is FREE, so give it a try on one of our upcoming rainy and chilly days when you need to get your heart rate going!
