Instead of running miles and miles on a treadmill staring at a wall, cycling gets you movin’ and groovin’ to the beat. The lights are dim and the music is bumpin’. So, grab a sweat towel, a bottle of water, and head to one of these high-energy cycling studios.
For spinning with a soul, check out Westlake's Psycle. With classes ranging from ‘beginner’ to off-bike workouts like STRENGTH: long and lean, it’s obvious this studio created classes with everyone’s needs in mind. The instructors are intense, the bikes are state-of-the-art, and signing up is a snap. Check out their Facebook page for schedule updates and monthly deals!
If you’ve never ventured into one of Harness’s classes before, you’re missing out. This studio started off in the trendy neighborhood of Hingetown before adding a secone locale at East 6th and Euclid downtown. Every class is filled with full-body workouts, sweaty forearms, and instructors committed to clipping in. Make sure to view their schedule weekly to see what fun rides they're hosting (like their Battle Rides, where they split the room up to go head-to-head with the music).
GrooveRyde is way more than just cycling. They offer boxing, Buti yoga, bootcamps, and classes that make you want to workout. The proof: their themed classes are second-to-none, as they host a variety of fun weekly classes like their TBT or battle classes. We’re not going to lie — GrooveRyde is where it’s at, and you have twice as many chances to catch a class at one of their two locations.
Is there anything Lakewood doesn’t have? Ride + Workout has some sweat-worthy classes including cycling, rowing, TRX, and bootcamp. But if you’re asking us, the best part about Ride & Workout is their combo classes where they mix cycling with other workouts. Try Ride TRX, a bike ride mixed with an upper-body strength session.
The Edge has a mixture of daily full-body classes, but let’s shed some light on their indoor cycling, shall we? With 60-minute classes that simulate different types of terrain, you’re going to forget you’re inside the Broadview Heights studio. And just in case you’d rather get your workout in before work starts, their earliest class goes down at 5:45am on weekdays. Yup, there’s no excuses here. Log onto their site to reserve your spot.
It’s not always easy to just throw a cycling workout right into your busy schedule. But we have the answer for Mentor: SolSprint. Their studio hosts morning workouts, late afternoon sessions, and after-work combo workouts ideal for some on- and off-the-bike fun. With their state-of-the-art (read: loud) sound system bikes, you’re bound to fit in here. Plus, they offer new students their first class for just $5!
No one likes diving into something without knowing what they’re getting into — which is why CycleBar offers a $10 intro class to first-timers! Pedal hard in their CycleTheatre on one of over 50 bikes with personal data monitors, a sick sound system, and endlessly motivating instructors. They even share CycleStats with you, where they’ll measure how hard you worked during your session and email you the results! “Rock Your Ride” in one of CycleBar's multiple locales across the city.
Hop on your bike and roll out your yoga mat for Confluence's unique spin classes. Most classes begin with an intense ride and end with a enlightening, ultra-conscious yoga practice. Classes range from 60–75 minutes and start as early as 6:30am or as late as 7:15pm, so you’re bound to find a class that intrigues every type of rider (and yogi).
Elements Studios combines earth, water, fire, and air to bring you a suite of different workout experiences. If you're looking for an invigorating spin class, look no further that Elements' "Air Studio." You'll feel like you're cycling on the open road instead of spinning in the studio, thanks to the Stages SprintShift™ bikes that mimic the feel of road riding.
