Hard AF?!

  • Cyc45 is challenging. Of course, the class is somewhat instructor-dependent, but every class I’ve taken, the class has been difficult, inspiring, and no-nonsense.

  • Even though Cyc doesn’t have monitors like FlyWheel, it’s not as beat-intense as SoulCycle. Meaning you won’t be totally lost if you’re not a good beat spinner.

  • The arm sections are hard (i.e. not a break).
