London’s leading boutique spin studio, Psycle, opens its doors to West London and we were there to take the first ever class in the brand spanking new Notting Hill location.
Cleats and sweat towels at the ready, there’s a new spin studio in town and it’s opening its doors to West London. London’s leading boutique spin studio, Psycle, has expanded its newest location to Westbourne Grove, in the heart of Notting Hill.
Beginning as a ride-only concept, Psycle has grown into one of the highest in demand premium fitness brands in the UK, now offering barre, strength and yoga classes.
Whether you are a spin fanatic or beginner, the friendly studio welcomes individuals of all levels to ride to the beat, let loose and get in an energetic workout – picture a healthy rave on a bike!
Designed to maximize the benefits of group performance, we took part in Psycle’s signature class Ride 45, a great way to improve your cardio, balance, core and muscular strength.
We climbed hills till our legs felt like jelly, whacked resistance off for sprint intervals and got an upper body pump thanks to the challenging hand-weight segment. Side note: Don’t be fooled by the light dumbbells, your arms will be crying by the end. Overall, we felt energised and oh so very sweaty.
What better way to refuel a workout than spoiling yourself to luxury toiletries that Psycle provides in their gorgeous changing rooms, including GHD styling equipment. You’ll be feeling, smelling and looking good in no time.
You don’t want to dash to the office with an empty stomach, Psycle’s plant-based Energy Kitchen is the ultimate cafe for delicious post-workout shakes, hot drinks and nutritious food to go. Teamed with a tranquil community space as the perfect way to recharge, rest assured you won’t be hungry or rushing back home to get ready.
