AURACYCLE IS FOR YOU!

MY POV: Not going to lie for some reason my first experience at Aura wasn't the best, but then I opted into a few of their themed classes and my point of view totally changed! I especially loved Shannon, Amy, and Nicholas's classes. Compared to a studio like Cycle House, at Aura I feel like I am responsible for how much I push myself in the class. For example, I have never experienced an instructor approaching my bike and pushing me to change gears or go harder, but I go about that on my own when I feel I need to be more challenged! I love how spacious the cycling room is at Aura as well as all the bright fun lights

SOULCYCLE IS FOR YOU!

MY POV: I absolutely love SoulCycle. No matter what is going on in my life after a SoulCycle class I leave with an amount of energy I couldn't possibly get anywhere else. I always leave feeling super inspired, relieved, energetic, and after many classes I find myself getting a little emotional and even shedding some tears. There is something about SoulCycle, a feeling I get deep down that I honest to God have never gotten from any other workout class out there. My favorite instructor is Lisa Moloshok! She is an instructor in Weho, Beverly Hills, and Downtown La and takes the time to get to know everyone who comes to her class! She is a BADASS! I am a huge believer in everyone trying a SoulCycle class at least once in their life! Hope to see you on a bike soon!

CYCLE HOUSE IS FOR YOU!

MY POV: Hands down the best workout out of any cycling studio in LA. If you are coming to this studio be prepared to WORK. There is no slacking off in Aaron and Nichelle's classes. They are by far my favorites and when I really need to sweat things out and get an intense workout in I go to them. Okay shoes...blah gross. Honestly, I invested in my own and it has been the best decision ever. If you cycle a few times a month make the investment! I got lucky and found a pair at the SoulCycle sample sale, brand new and half the price! The classes at Cyclehouse are pricey to take but for me it has been worth keeping my Classpass around.

THE WALL IS FOR YOU!

MY POV: I really like The Wall because of how unique the workout is. The class consists of 10 minute core activation, 20 minutes of high intensity circuit training, and 30 minutes of cycling. Michael Vail's class was so fun, the time literally flew by! His energy was insane! I have heard great things about Jason Wimberly, the owner, but have yet to try him out! I will say the day after taking my first class at The Wall I was so sore! It felt good to know I was activating muscles I clearly haven't used in awhile!

EVOLVCYCLE IS FOR YOU!

MY POV: I really enjoyed Cara's Hip Hop themed class. It flew by! I liked how smooth the bikes were and how clean the studio was. The class itself was more intimate with around 30 bikes as opposed to some studios that have double that! With that being said, I recommend if you are new to spinning to try this studio. It is comfortable and not as overwhelming as a much bigger spin class. There is no weight portion however, we did an upper body/arm workout using the towels they provided. Very interesting, yet effective for sureParking was also free and stress free

MY POV: I have only been to Flywheel a couple of times but I must say this studio was the most friendly and welcoming of them all. I highly recommend this studio for beginners because there is a small screen on each bike displaying what speed you are at and it can help you really get a feel for the bike and its gears. There is also a Torque Leaderboard at the front of the class that displays the highest scores and can get fun if you are competitive! And your personal results will appear in the app after class too! The studio also gives out gifts and holds various competitions throughout the year
