There is a new ride in town…

I mentioned back in April that I had become Project Manager for an exciting new indoor cycling studio. The months have rolled past since then and the project has been full steam ahead for our official launch. Cycle Rhythm is due to it’s doors this Saturday and I couldn’t be more proud of how our studio has turned out.


Cycle Rhythm is Essex’s only state-of-the-art purpose-built indoor cycling studio. We offer a high intensity, low impact workout, suitable for everyone, no matter their level of experience or fitness. Our classes combine music, passionate instructors and high-spec cycles to create an exhilarating workout. Designed to engage your entire body, a Cycle Rhythm class is sure to burn calories, blast fat, tone muscles and help you to achieve increased cardiovascular strength and endurance in just 45 minutes. 
The space has been completely transformed from a dilapidated shell, to a luxury high-end boutique studio…

Our timetables, price cards and flyers have been printed…

 
My role has also included recruiting a team of the best cycle instructors from the local area. We had an overwhelming response from applicants, and I’ve been taking part in 3-6 spin classes a week in order to get a feel for each instructors teaching style. Fantastic for me, getting to go to the gym as part of my day job!

I’ve also been involved in every other aspect of setting up the studio including sourcing the cleated cycle shoes, designing schedule and price cards, organising the instructor schedule, promotion and marketing in magazines and newspapers. 

Essex is awash with cycling fans today as the Tour de France passes through our streets. To celebrate the adrenaline-packed cycle race, we are hosting an open day at the studio. Clients can get a first glimpse at our luxury studio, try out our bikes and meet the team. If you are in the area, pop in and say hello!

Prior to our opening, we are hosting a charity event in association with local Weight Watchers groups. The class participants will be the first to experience a Cycle Rhythm class and all proceeds from this special class will all go to Diabetes UK. 

Cycle Rhythm opens within the same site as our existing hot yoga studio- Bikram Yoga Essex. Bikram yoga and indoor cycling are the perfect partnership, the combination of the two workouts enable you to get fit, get flexible and get strong. A yoga session focused on stretching, posture, flexibility, and stress relief is an ideal cooldown after an intense interval workout. We have structured our timetables at the two studios to allow clients to go straight from the saddle to the mat with back-to-back classes. 
 
At Bikram Yoga Essex, we have just celebrated our first anniversary. Over the past twelve months, we have developed a warm, inviting, family-run studio in which client’s can develop their yoga practice. Bikram Yoga Essex has attracted a loyal following and created a community of devoted clients which extends beyond the studio doors. We hope to achieve the same at Cycle Rhythm, by maintaining the customer-based focus, and high standard of instructors. The whole team are passionate and really want to give to their all to the students.


There is a huge buzz around the studio with classes in our opening week close to selling out. For those of you who are not local to Essex, the good news is that we have several more studios in the pipeline, including Central London locations.
