My First Cyclebar Class
Is it worth the cost? Sharing all the details and a complete review in this article! I wish you had an excellent long weekend. I’m definitely in that, “What day is it?” kinda mode. We had an amazing trip to NORTH PARK – I’ll share more pics and escapades from our trip soon – now it’s back to the usual golf swing of things.
The very good news is that I did our laundry before we left therefore I don’t have a hill of filthy clothes looking at me. It’s the little things. With the exception of the cruise trip (since we’d a full fitness center and free childcare on board!), I haven’t been training much on holidays lately.
It hasn’t made sense with this schedule, so when we’re walking around and exploring/playing a ton, I enter a whole great deal of motion. The TDLR version: I wasn’t super in love with it. It didn’t blow me away, the same way I felt while I first tried Orangetheory, Pure Barre, barre, or BODYPUMP. When I got to the studio, I had been so excited to test the workout.

I’d heard a bit about Cyclebar – we don’t have one in Tucson but there are a handful in Phoenix – and I understood they used a leaderboard for the class. This was interesting to me, especially since the leaderboard often makes me work a lot harder in my own Peloton classes at home.
You can borrow cycling shoes at the studio. If you have your own, I’d make sure they’re suitable before course just. I’m sure the Hillcrest studio room used the Look Delta clips fairly. I walked upstairs and was instantly impressed by the design of the studio. It was bright, clean, open, and had quite a few Instagrammable red and white walls. 😉 I got my shoes, found my bike, and got to create. They use Schwinn bicycles (LOVE) in a stadium environment, light results, and had two large displays with a Miley Cyrus music video using.
I treasured the vibe and was very pumped about class. But… it kind of went downhill from there. I wish to say the class was bad don’t, but it’s not at all something that I’d pay to wait on a regular basis. In every fairness, I think I experienced a solid instructor doesn’t.
She described that she was new, so I feel bad because I’ve been a newbie instructor myself (and bombed my first spin, Zumba, step, and everything classes), but I didn’t have a noteworthy first experience. The music was great, but the being was hazy and uninspiring. The worst part was that they only used the leaderboard 2 times for two 30-second sprints.
I recognized after writing this post that they concentrate more on the leaderboard for specific course types. After the course, I received an email with my leaderboard stats, but I wish I could have seen them in real time rather than after the fact. I think the leaderboard aspect could make the class really fun and interesting, but I don’t think I put the full connection with it.
The audio system was incredible and loved the idea to play music videos on the screens before class. I found the light to be moody and cool also; it was a fun effect without being distracting. I liked the power portion of the class. You use a brief weighted bar (the first is 4 lbs and the other is 6 pounds) that are like heavy magician wands, and perform traditional stamina strength training movements.
