Rebel Ride Indoor Cycling & Strength

LifestyleLucy LopezComment

Let's face it, after a long day or having the same routine, working out at your everyday gym can get a little stale. One of my favorite things to do is take classes as studios that focus on particular exercises as a treat to myself! Not only am I getting in a workout, but it's always such a different experience than being on your own. Whether its hot yoga, barre, or spin, I'm always excited to try something new. 

Rebel Ride is Western New York's newest indoor cycling and strength studio, and I am already in love! 

Their grand opening Saturday, October 21. Rebel Ride is located at at 6449 Transit Road in East Amherst. They are offering their pre-opening discounted package until Sunday, October 29!

I got a chance to preview the space before they open and take a class with Moe, one of their Rhythm instructors! They feature two signature rides – a Rhythm Ride complete with pulsing beats and choreographed moves and a Performance Ride which uses metrics to measure the effectiveness of your workout.

While he provided a few guidelines for us on what speeds we should aim for, the class is really catered to every experience level.

FUN FACTS: 

  • In addition to spin, there are TRX classes for strength training & they exclusively offer In-Trinity, a Pilates, yoga and martial arts hybrid class for flexibility.

  • Spin with control - you can rent spin shoes that lock into your bike for just $2 a class! (Your first class is free, including shoe rental!) 

  • You can treat yourself to post-workout goodies with a cold brew and espresso bar featuring Public Espresso coffee. They also have two Kombucha variations on tap!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the studio has partnered with Roswell Park’s Cancer Institute to raise funds for their Breast Cancer Resource Center by donating the proceeds from a grand opening weekend raffle and the sale of a custom ‘Rebel’s with a Cause’ tank to the organization.  Rebel Ride will also ‘go pink’ for a donations-based ‘Survivor’ ride on October 28. This is all part of their ‘Rebels with a Cause’ initiative.

"Since we're opening in October, it was really important to Erika and all of us to find a way to give back," said Melina, Rebel Ride studio manager.
