I cycle everywhere. At least, I used to until I left my bike out during a particularly fierce storm this winter. It hasn’t been the same since. But I hate spin class. I only went once and the experience scarred me. So when I was approached by newly opened Spokehaus, I was wary of the opportunity.

But I’m not one to shy away from things I dislike. I know all too well that time changes everything, as well as the right instructor and program when it comes to workouts specifically. I’m so glad I went.

Full of energy, great music and enthusiastic (but not annoyingly enthusiastic) instructors, I felt like I was in a dance class more than anything else. The 45 minutes flew by and I was drenched in sweat. Although I wasn’t particularly sore the next day, I felt like I got in an amazing cardio workout, something that I was in dire need of after injuring my knee running.

The Spokehaus space itself is amazing, perfect for photos. Although small, everything from the design to the cool eucalyptus towel will have people returning for more.
