Cycle X Studio
If Soulcycle and Flywheel had a spin baby, Cycle X would be it. Cycle X is a 45 min high-intensity spin class that combines ryhythm riding with personal performance-tracking metrics and an upper-body sculpting section guaranteeing a full-body workout and sweat.
Fitness clothes + spin shoes (they provide complimentary shoes!)
Each bike will be fitted with dumbbells for your arm workout and your own personal performance tracking device that monitors your stats in real time.
The format class to class is similar, but instructors choose their own song lists and drills.
High-intensity spin class.
Cardio heavy -lots of intervals, hills, and endurance drills with ~1 song geared to upper body exercises.
Minor choreography used - think tap-backs on the bike.
Sweat Level: 💧💧💧💧💧
First Timers: $15 per class or 10 day unlimited for $39.
Returners: $25 per class.
The space is larger, white and blue tones.
The instructors are super nice and energetic.
The spin room is dark, and the instructors will use various lighting schemes during class.
Lockers, bathrooms, and showers.
The class schedule is released at 5 pm every Sunday for the following 8 days.
Each bike comes suited with our own personal metric performance calculator that shows real- time stats (RPMs, total workload, etc) & rank in class - this was not stressed as much as in Flywheel.
This class felt like a mix of SoulCycle rhythm riding, with some RPM stat check-ins that mimic-ed Flywheel.
The owners apparently came form Flywheel, but my instructor was a former SoulCycle employee = best of both worlds!
