Spin classes have become a hot fitness trend among high-intensity enthusiasts and group exercise novices alike being fun yet effective workout for people of all fitness levels. Valley residents will soon be able to experience a new kind of cycling class with CycleBar, a luxury boutique fitness franchise offering a high-energy workout in a lively, concert-like atmosphere.
CycleBar will offer guests classes in the CycleTheatre and are led by certified CycleStar instructors who take participants on a fierce 50-minute ride of heart-pumping action. The studios state-of-the-art CycleTheatre can accommodate up to 50 people and has LED lighting, eye-catching graphics on a wide screen and even a DJ booth.
After class, riders can cool down with fresh fruit, infused water and take in the benefits of facility-wide aromatherapy. Guests can also access CycleBar concierge service including a host of amenities like complimentary towels, showers, lockers and shoes to use during workouts.
CycleBar first opened in Cincinnati and has since expanded to locations in Michigan, Indiana and Boston. The Arizona studio at Scottsdale’s McCormick Ranch will be led by Jon Krumdieck, originally from Cincinnati himself. “CycleBar differs considerably from big-box gyms, and one of the ways it does so is by offering a pay-per-class model,” said Krumdieck, of the franchise’s unique business model. “So, there’s no need for monthly or annual membership contracts.”
In honor of its grand opening in Arizona, CycleBar will hold a 10-day celebration where guests can try out one of the 50 heart-pounding workouts completely free. Registration is required to participate in the opening event. For more information and to register, visit McCormickRanch.CycleBar.com.
