It’s easy to take your workout up a gear at this chic cycle spot with Schwinn Carbon Blue bikes and a QSC sound system that ensures the energy is high and the bass is pumping. Look for monthly souped-up takes on 45-minute classes: Past spins include Heat, featuring live DJs, Ghost Tequila cocktails and a mega-toasty classroom, and Rise & Rave, a coffee-driven glow stick sweat sesh. The studio goes the extra mile with its Handle With Care nonprofit that raises awareness for mental illnesses.
