Still looking to shed those extra lockdown lbs? For high-impact and quick results (and a really good time), look no further than a spin class.
Spin classes in the City of London are a top way to clear your mind and transform your body.
Whether you pedal to party music or add yoga moves to your ride, every class offers something different.
Here are a few seriously good spin classes in the City of London to work up a sweat this month.
Not just an indoor cycling studio, Boom Cycle engages riders mentally as well as physically through their unique experience. With the lights low and a world-class sound system, riders are swept away and immersed into the ultimate ‘party on a bike’ experience. Located in Monument and Holborn, Boom Cycle caters to all abilities but most importantly is here to encourage you to cut loose from your day and forget your stresses.
Just two minutes from Shoreditch High Street Overground station, Psycle’s 45-minute sessions will challenge your whole body. Choose from four intensive workouts – Ride, Barre, Strength and Yoga – and take to the bike while incorporating elements into the cycle. The sleek studio is all about community and expert advice – you’ll come for strength and leave with support. What’s more, Psycle’s online platform offers the classes online if you can’t make it to the studio.
Technically not in the City, but always worth a mention, SoulCycle is one of the original spin classes from the US, which landed in the UK a few years ago. So, make sure you prepare yourself for a 45-minute session of intense energy complemented by whopping and high fives. Perfect for both beginners and aficionados, you’ll be bouncing from your saddle from start to finish in every class. Work off the day’s stress or start your weekend with a burst of energy with a class full of smiling, albeit sweaty, faces as you give yourself a full body workout. If you’re really looking to fit right in, grab some merch from the Soul shop.
Head to the Bank studios for a lesson in cadence. Embracing the power of movement and music, the Rhythm Cycle class guides you through an immersive rhythm-lead journey, focussing on power, strength and endurance. Not just a gimmick, the concept is supposed to use beats to challenge and elevate your ride, helping you hit your next goal. Now, which BPM will you prefer?
With a mantra of ‘We don’t spin. We ride’, you know you’re in for an experience when booking an indoor cycling class at 1Rebel’s Broadgate location. Boasting a state-of-the-art sounds system and tunes to help get you ready to ride, the 1Rebel class lasts for 45 minutes and can burn up to 800 calories per session. Don’t worry if you’re not into the music playing, there are 40 instructors to choose from across their City locations (each with their own playlist), so you’re bound to find the right fit for you.
