Born To Ride Cycle and Fitness is a spinning-only fitness center, meaning this is the place for anyone serious about cycle fitness. Inside this spacious, mirror-lined studio, state-of-the-art Schwinn AC Performance Plus stationary bikes are lined up and ready to be pedaled furiously during the Mid-Morning Motivator class, during which sprints, climbing, and intervals are propelled by heart-pounding music. Additionally, the Rider’s Bootcamp sessions, much like trying to carry a greasy anvil up a set of stairs, promise to “leave your legs shakin’.” Instructors here are passionate about the health benefits of spinning, and strive to make both their personal training sessions and their group classes fun, motivating, and completely addictive.
