We’d heard rumblings that an incredible new cycling studio was planning to shake up the Miami fitness scene, and we’re happy to report the rumors are true! Grab your cycling shoes — boutique concept Rukus Cycling Studios is arriving in Coral Gables this spring.
At Rukus, the instructors (better known as CyclePros) might come from different backgrounds, but all have one thing in common: they know exactly what it takes to get you stoked to sweat. So expect motivating mantras and cardio-fueled classes, each with their own unique spin.
And we haven’t even gotten to the brand’s CycleArena, an immersive studio space featuring LED lighting, high-tech audio, and major nightclub vibes. Everything in the room is completely controlled by your CyclePro, so don’t be surprised when your choreographed moves match up with the lights, music, and beat drop during a Justin Bieber x Justin Timberlake-themed class.
Love a little friendly competition? In the center of the studio is the leaderboard, which displays live stats (Power, Mileage, RPM, and points) throughout the entire workout, so you can see how you stack up to your fellow riders — and push yourself to a new PR.
Whether you’re a cycling newbie or a total pro, Rukus offers something for everyone. The studio’s signature 45-minute class, Rukus Prime, includes plenty of hills, jumps, and intervals to get your adrenaline going. Then, there’s Rukus Impulse, a challenging, heart rate-based workout where your RPM dictated by the rhythm. HIIT more your thing? Rukus Surge, a 30-minute ride that packs in a muscle-burning series of sprints, climbs, and more, is definitely for you.
And if you can’t find a class time to fit your schedule — no worries. They offer a Virtual On-Demand studio where that you can clip in to stream a workout and even grab a spot on a Peloton bike. Into it? We thought so. Follow them on Insta for opening day updates!
