Ever felt yourself lacking a bit of fitspiration? Finding the sofa more appealing than the treadmill?
We can relate, but we think this might just change your mind. CycleBar is a brilliant spinning studio in City Walk that offers up a fantastic workout that not only burns massive calories, but does it in a fun way that also leaves you feeling buzzed.
It’s the number one spinning brand in the US, and the City Walk version has got some ace facilities that offer a really premium exercise experience. The CycleTheatre room itself holds 55 custom bikes, two huge flat-screen TVs (intermittently projecting your score, and rank against your fellow riders), personal data monitors on your bike and a brilliant audio, video and lighting rig. It’s basically part spinning studio, part night club – and we love it.
There are some pretty swanky changing and shower facilities so you don’t leave the studio feeling all sweaty, but most importantly the instructors are ace at keeping seasoned pros on their toes, while teaching and motivating newcomers. Plus there are more than 1 million tracks in the studio’s proprietary music system, so when you get your performance statistics emailed to you afterwards, you’ll also get a playlist sent to you too.
Throughout December it’s easier and cheaper to sign up to CycleBar than ever. All month long, new customers will get their first ride for free. There’s also a 20 percent discount on drop-in rides and packages (not including merchandise).
So go ahead, tuck into those mince pies because CycleBar will help you burn off those calories.
