It seems that everywhere you look, people have become infatuated with group spin classes.

Workout connoisseurs have deemed this method of exercise to be especially motivating and inspiring–it’s become a lifestyle. So it’s no surprise that a new home for the musical spin class experience came to Montclair last year.

In the heart of town, CycleBar opened its doors at 656 Bloomfield Ave. There, Macelon D’sa, the franchise manager, has brought a new form of group spinning to clients hoping to continue those New Year’s Resolutions into the summer. The Montclair Dispatch spoke with Macelon about what makes CycleBar a special place to loosen up and work off that extra energy, while, most importantly, having fun.

“We want to create a fun and accessible experience for riders of all ages and fitness levels and ensure that every CycleBar ride is an unparalleled multisensory, intoxicating journey. We hire and retain the very best people and fuel each ride with amazing music, energy-enhancing video graphics and rider-specific performance data in a state-of-the-art CycleTheatre™. At CycleBar, we deliver concierge-level service and an exhilarating experience that goes far beyond a great cardio fitness workout. Rock the ride, each and every time.”

Macelon looks to make sure that CycleBar riders are having a different kind of workout experience.

We make the workout fun and exciting! Our goal is to make sure you leave your workout with a smile on your face! We are also all about getting involved and being an integral part of the community because we love Montclair! The diversity and welcoming nature of this vibrant neighborhood fit in perfectly with our mission!”

CycleBar has a wide range of members, from parents to students, and everyone in between. We spoke with an avid CycleBar class attendee, Addie Temkin (Montclair High School ‘18), who explained why CycleBar has brought in such a large group of eager cyclists since touching down in Montclair.

“It’s 45 minutes where I’m only focused on me and nothing else that’s happening around me. It’s a really great workout and you almost forget that you’re working hard because it’s so fun!”

I had the pleasure of attending a CycleBar class and I would recommend that everyone give it a try (your first class is free)! There is high energy throughout the entire 45-minute class, and the instructors will leave you smiling–and sweaty. And no worries if you are a spinning newbie; the instructors help to adjust your bike to ensure a comfortable ride. 

It’s easy to get stuck in an exercise rut or become frustrated with the everyday gym. But with enthusiastic coaches (aka CycleStar Instructors) and invigorating classes set to energized soundtracks, CycleBar could be the extra motivation you need to get out and workout.
