Welcome to the NEW world of indoor cycling! Eucalyptus-scented chilled towels, a post-ride massage, signature locker room amenities, bikes that monitor your performance and scheduling software that allows you to reserve a specific bike are just a few of the trends emerging in this wildly popular fitness addiction.
Boutique neighborhood studios are now combining indoor cycling with Pilates, personal training, barre and yoga classes. Imagine a high energy Spin® class followed by restorative yoga, and you’ve found the perfect respite to your hectic day.
Studio ambience is first and foremost in the minds of new studio owners. Clients are
now asking for custom logo flywheels, pre-opening storefront windows, remote controlled lighting, wall murals, sleek and powerful sound systems, curved tinted glass walls, instructor platforms for team rides, and acoustic ceiling panels.
Indoor Cycle Design collaborates with the best names in the industry (FreeMotion™, Keiser®, Star Trac®, Schwinn®, Performance IQ®, ZingFit®, etc.), to provide clients substantial discounts on products that not only withstand the rigors of a cycling class, but also provide functional beauty and quality. From logo design and pre-opening marketing to flooring and microphones, my goal is to ensure your ultimate success.
More openings are scheduled to launch this fall in London, Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.
