How do I sign up for a class?

Go to CLASSES click view details and read the class description, and if you like a class click on BOOK and reserve your seat.
We recommend you download the Spivi application, using the application will make your experience of signing up for classes, and tracking your performance easy simple and efficient.
If a class is full, you can put yourself on the waitlist. If a bike opens up in that class, you’ll be placed into the class and notified via email.
What if I’ve never tried a cycling class before and I’m not a biker?
You don’t even need to know how to ride a bike to come to a spin class! Our spinners ages range from 14 to 79 years of age.
We know that your first class can be an overwhelming experience however we have the knowledge and the skills to make it an smooth and rewarding experience.
Once you sign up for your first class please call the studio or email us in advance to inform us if you would like to have assistance in your first session.
Please show up 15 minutes in advance in your first session, and we will help you to set up the bike and provide you with additional information about the studio and the class.
It is my first spinning classes, any good advice for me?
Wearing padded cycling shorts or using a gel seat cover will definitely make your ride more comfortable. Cycling shoes are made with a very stiff sole that enables more powerful pedal strokes. Cycling shoes can also be used with clipless pedals, which facilitate a push/pull action and more efficient pedal strokes. At Cycle Zone we use SPD compatible clips as well as cages for those who do not have cycling shoes. Please bring an extra clean shoes if you’re planning on using the cage pedals.
Is spinning a good workout for burning calories and losing weight?
Spinning is one of the most effective and efficient workouts you can do. You can burn anywhere from 450-800 calories in 45-60 minutes session (depending factors like age gender and weight) and on the level of your intensity. In comparison, a 170 lb. male runner will have to run up to 7 miles in 45 minutes to burn 800 calories.
How far in advance should I sign up for a class?
You can sign two weeks in advance at any given day. We recommend that you sign up for your favorite classes as soon as possible as many classes fill up quickly due to the high demand and the limit we set for the class size.
Can I take my class if I’m pregnant?
We’ve had many moms-to-be take classes throughout their pregnancy, but please consult your physician beforehand.
How about safety?
Safety first at Cycle Zone !!!
Just as you would with any new exercise, consult your doctor before starting up at Cycle Zone.
Our rides can be rigorous cardio experience at times , so make sure you listen to your body during your class. Our instructors will help you reach your personal best, but your safety comes first. If at any time during or after a class you feel unusual symptoms, please notify us and/or seek medical attention.
If I have an injury from another sport is Spinning class a good alternative?
Taking a Spinning class may be an excellent way to cross train. Cycling is a no impact, no weight bearing activity, and as a result you can maintain your fitness and intensity level, while you are recovering from your injury. However only your doctor can determine if the Spinning program is a safe option for you.
A HEART RATE MONITOR – IT IS A MUST
You must have a heart rate monitor to participate. You may bring your own or rent one from Cycle Zone.
Our cycling program consists of five Energy Zones. These Energy Zones vary in intensity and are based upon certain percentages of your maximum heart rate. By wearing a heart rate monitor, you will be better equipped to assess the intensity of your ride and determine when to push harder, maintain your pace or reduce your effort. By taking the guesswork out of your workout you maximize your efficiency while minimizing your odds of overtraining, injury and burnout.
We provide free towels. And free unlimited reverse Osmosis water!
We also have changing rooms, showers/restrooms and cubbies for your convenience.
Can I rent the studio for a spin party?
Yes, see management for more information.
