As most of you know, I love me a hard and sweaty spin class. I especially love the choreographed, dance-y, type of classes. Who needs to go to a club ’til 2 a.m. when you can party on a bike, get to bed early, and avoid the hangover? Not me.
I’m always game for trying new studios. It’s kind of my hobby, actually. I recently tried Pure, a new studio in San Diego, for a month. The results are in: this place kicks serious ass.
Pure Indoor Cycling is located downtown between Little Italy and the Gaslamp. The studio is pristine with all the amenities, a super chic lounge area, and really nice bikes. More importantly, the instructors are top notch.
I had the chance to try out almost all of them and loved every single one. Amy and Maria are my two favorites, mainly because they have awesome energy and they both know how to put together a killer playlist. The music is key for me and they both know what’s up.
I find cycling class to be 10 times more fun with a friend, so I would bring someone with me each time I went. Your first ride is FREE so check it out and bring a workout buddy.
Theme rides were new to me and I can now say, I’m a fan. I went to a ride where the whole playlist was songs that featured Rhianna. It was pretty amazing, not gonna lie.
I always wear my Fitbit when I workout, and I found my heart rate to be much higher than it usually is in a spin class – so the workout is legit. You will sweat your ass off but the time will FLY by. I remember one of Maria’s classes ending so quickly that I thought she actually messed up the time. It turned out I was just having THAT much fun. Classes are only 45 mins so there’s really no excuse to not go, even if you’re super busy.
I’d recommend taking a class at a popular time, like 5:45 p.m., to get the full experience. When every bike is taken, the energy is off the charts and it makes the ride that much more enjoyable. I’m on a really, really good high when I step off my bike after a Pure class. If you check it out, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
