Located on the same Freeport Boulevard block as Dad’s Kitchen and Freeport Bakery, CycleLife might be the most convenient place to work off indulgent calories.
CycleLife opened in early January to offer a variety of music-themed and efficient 45-minute indoor cycling workouts with 29 bikes available per class.
“The studio is all about the music,” says owner Becca Kenyon. “We incorporate all genres into every class, so there is something for everyone.”
Classes include Beat Ride, Rave Ride, and Bikes and Bubbles. The latter includes champagne and mimosas after class every Sunday.
CycleLife offers classes for women and men of all ages. So far, Becca has observed girls as young as 12 and women up to age 60 attend class. For people new to indoor cycling, she suggests the CycleStarter, which is an introduction to spin classes.
After seeking advice from friends owning local businesses and working with local real estate agents, Becca decided Land Park would be the perfect spot. “It’s such a small tight-knit community,” observes Becca. “Cycling is a great low-impact, high-intensity workout for all ages, so having the high school and college nearby it made sense.”
The studio also offers special rides including a recent charity ride for the Boys and Girls Club. “What sets us apart is the community we are building around the studio beyond the classes,” says Becca. “We offer charity rides and love to give back. We have already donated to almost every school in the Land Park and Curtis Park region.”
Child care is offered for a nominal fee during certain class times with a minimum age of 9 months. CycleLife’s website has class schedules and reservations. Bike shoes can be rented for a dollar and lockers are available. The first class is free, thereafter the fee is $20 per single class with discounts for a package of classes.
