Certified spin instructor Melissa Davis spent several years experimenting with indoor cycling workouts, trying to balance a stationary bike's cardio benefits with exercises to toughen up upper bodies. After a trial-and-error process, she invented Moxieride—a studio that integrates hand weights and resistance bands with spinning. She designed a steel apparatus and had it specially installed so that stretchable bands hung close at hand, and once the studio stocked up on complimentary towels, hair bands, and optional training wheels, Moxieride was ready to welcome its first racers.
Melissa's innovative 45- to 60-minute routines have been featured on the Fox 25 Morning News. While instructors demonstrate the maneuvers of MoxieSteel, MoxieBands, or MoxieRebel—a class that combines both weights and bands—motivational music pushes bodies like a drill sergeant moonlighting as a Lamaze coach.
