ZenRide Spinning Studio opened its doors on Aug. 15, with a class and open house to friends, family and the community of Fairfield.
Located at 869 Post Road in the Fairfield shopping Center, ZenRide remodeled a 2,000 square foot space offering 30 NXT Spinner bikes for spinning classes seven days a week.
ZenRide, is an officially licensed spinning facility, with MadDogg-trained instructors, new bikes and sound system and a warm space. ZenRide offers daily spinning classes with various ride formats, geared toward people at all different ages and fitness levels.
“One of my goals for ZenRide is to make spinning more accessible for all, to dispel myths about the spinning program, such as already needing to be a certain level fitness in order to try it, having a militant instructor yelling at the class or other ‘hard core’ misperceptions that have grown over the years,” said Jessica Gray, owner and instructor.
Cycling is second only to swimming in providing people at all fitness levels a low impact cardio work-out. Burning up to 700 calories per ride, spinning takes cycling to the next level, weaving the mind-body-spirit connection via inspirational instructors, the music they choose and the work-out they lead.
There is no membership required at ZenRide. Pricing is a flexible online pay-per-ride system, ranging between $12 to $18 each, depending on the package one chooses. With online rides in their account, people can make reservations up to one week in advance. Rides expire in six months or one year. The reservation system also allows individuals to choose the individual bike within the room.
