CycleBar - Classic

cyclebar-spin-studio

TL;DR

CycleBar is a classic spin class set to a tried and true format. You’ll ride using monitors attached to the bike, but the focus is still on the beat of the music.

Format/Equipment

  • Fitness clothes. CycleBar offers spin shoes for free (yay!).

  • 45 mins.

  • Classic spin class. You’ll do about 30 mins of spinning (a mix of fast, slow, light, heavy work), 7 mins of arms with light weights, and 8 mins of spinning.

  • The bikes have older monitors on them. The instructor gives a number range to be in and you’ll find that number on your monitor.

  • CycleBar has TV monitors in the front of the studio to track your work during class and race against others.

Hard AF?!

  • Cyclebar’s Classic class is as challenging as you make it.

  • There were times I couldn’t hear or there were no instructions on how heavy or light I needed to be, which was a bit frustrating.

  • Even though we had monitors, we didn’t use them as much as I, personally, would like (i.e. using watts) to make sure I was pushing enough.

  • Overall, a good spin class to take when you want a classic format.
