Spinning is one of those things that you don’t really get until you’ve actually tried it.
Haters will say it’s the exact same as riding a bike, but spin-addicts know it’s a full body workout that’ll have you dripping sweat. If you’re looking to get into the exercise (that’s no longer just a fad) or just looking to try a new spot, check out five of our favourite spin studios in Toronto below.
Located at 1163 Queen St. West, 6IX Cycle is the newest spin studio on this list — but it’s not your average class. They describe themselves as “more like a Vegas night club with spin bikes conveniently situated in the room.” Think dim lights and pump up music. Drop-in classes are $25 each, which includes a locker and shoe rental, and new riders can get 2 weeks unlimited for just $60.
If you’re planning on booking a class at Yonge and Eglinton’s SPINCO, make sure to do it fast. The studio’s high energy teachers have amassed dedicated followers that don’t miss a beat. Great music, choreographed moves and a One Team, One Bike mantra will have you drenched in sweat. Rides are $25 each and include shoe and locker rental, and new riders can get 2 weeks unlimited for $50. Can’t make it uptown? Keep an eye out for a downtown location opening soon.
This Ossington spin studio is a favourite amongst west enders. Founded in Vancouver, RIDE offers a full-body workout that’ll make you sweat, and even offers themed rides like Hip Hop Mondays. Your first class is free, and the next two are just $20. Afterward, drop-in rides are $26.
This list wouldn’t be complete without SoulCycle — there’s a reason the studio has gained cult-like status. Teachers are tough and encouraging, making sure each rider works up a sweat. The music is loud, choreography is fast and towels are spun above heads to keep you motivated. While classes are on the pricier end, first time riders can take a class for just $20. Afterward, classes are $30 each.
Nestled in City Place, this studio offers high-intensity workouts paired with an awesome playlist. Targeting each and every inch of your body, specially choreographed classes will have you dripping sweat and feeling good in no time. Rides are $25 each, and first time riders can get three rides for the price of one.
