Real Ryder Revolution Chicago
As instructors at Real Ryder Revolution—or R3—like to say, “We don’t spin, we ride.” They make that statement a reality by creating the closest experience to hitting the open roadways possible within a studio environment. Their facility houses 24 RealRyder cycles that add the side-to-side movements of a real-world riding experience to a stationary bike. From a small, raised platform, instructors pedal, turn, lean, and steer their way through a 45-minute workout set to adrenaline-pumping music to push students past their individual comfort zones. Routines focus on building a mind-to-muscle connection as riders strengthen their will to keep going even after they’ve realized that the german shepherd stopped chasing them. For a post-workout cleansing or a quick wardrobe change before work, R3 houses showers and changing rooms for its guests.
