If you haven’t heard of Cyclebar yet, you will. It’s sweeping the Dallas area now that there are 6 open DFW locations. They focus on giving their participants, or “cycle stars,” a multi-sensory experience with every ride.
Last week, I hosted a private class at the brand new Preston Forest location in Dallas. We had the opportunity to check out the studio and everything it has to offer.
New studios always have a clean and organized feel to them. The Preston Forest location has a front desk, computer check in area and lockers that have charging ports inside of them. The windows bring in a ton of light that reflects off the white walls to make the space appear even more large and open. Cyclebar also provides free shoe rentals for your visit and they are proudly displayed under the check in stations.
In the locker room area you will find a water bottle refill station with cold and room temperature water spouts. You don’t have to worry if you forget your water bottle at home, because water bottles and snacks are included.
Inside the cycle room, you will find many bikes, all equipped with adjustable seats and controls. The music sounds great, and the light show is a blast! Above the instructor, you will find two screens that display your cyclestats at various times throughout the ride.
Every rider will find 2 sets of weights, a towel, water bottle holder, and personal data monitors.
Katie led us in an energetic ride complete with state of the art technology. We completed 3 sprints, an ab section, upper body section and cool down all in the 50 minute class. Each song kept us motivated to keep going, and the lights help it feel more like a concert.
Cyclebar’s studio features large screens that featured everyone’s cyclestats during the sprints. Sprints are meant to get your heart rate up and help you burn an insane amount of calories. Comparing cyclestats help to motivate you to push a little faster and harder.
I have taken a few cycle classes, and this was the most inner-focused class I have taken. We set our purpose at the beginning of class, and were reminded several times to come back to that idea. It was more than just a cycle class with good music, it was a full body experience.
We ended class with champagne to reward all of our efforts. One of the attendees even won a free unlimited month just for attending! Congratulations Becky Park, I hope you love it!
Now through Sunday March 26, enjoy free intro classes at the Preston Forest Cyclebar location. Spaces are filling up quickly, so grab yours today. Starting Monday, March 27, you will need credits to purchase classes, however you can take advantage of the $99 new rider unlimited month.
