Cycle your way to better health

We gotta admit—indoor cycling, aka spinning, is pretty daunting to the uninitiated. After all, you’re set in a dimly-lit room, surrounded by insanely loud music while you exercise on a stationary bike. But the workout class comes with plenty of health perks, especially if we’re talking about cardiovascular health. Not only is it said that an hour of spinning can burn about 500-800 kcals, the workout also helps to train endurance and strength. So saddle up people, here’s where you should go to cycle your way to better health.

Absolute You

Ever-popular, Thailand-hailing spin and pilates studio Absolute You is a great place for beginners to start spinning. First-timers and even those relatively new to the workout will be provided foundation sessions ahead of classes (at no additional costs), so as to brief them on the exercises, how to catch the beats, and other spinning information like bike adjustments and more. For now, keep a lookout for their latest ventures with Zouk, as well as the debut of their The Centrepoint studio which will happen following the closure of the Peranakan Place branch.

Beat X

Apart from their unique medley of rebounding, boxing and hybrid workouts, avant-garde Beat X (BXS) located at Raffles Place also offers spin classes. Be sure to listen closely to all the instructions laid out by the trainers, as you might get called out at anytime if you don’t hit the right moves.


Like most beat matching studios, CruCycle takes its music very seriously. They play an enjoyable mix of R&B, hip-hop, pop and more, to put you in the mood to ride it out. They’ve got a nice locker room situation too; find fluffy towels, shower essentials and even healthy snack choices available for purchase if you’re hungry before and after spinning.

Ground Zero

Having recently relocated their spin studio to their new gym outlet at China Square Central, Ground Zero can now accommodate 40 bikers in the sparkling new space. You can enjoy a luxe, post-workout pamper too, as Ashley & Co shower products, Dyson hair dryers and a large vanity are all available for use. Try their twin classes trial package at just $48.


Join the revolution at CBD’s Cecil Street for a spin experience unlike any other. Promising a party on a bike, Revolution provides a world-class sound system and an immersive fitness studio to deliver a high-energy workout class. For 45mins, ride to explosive tunes with the pair of professional grade cycling shoes provided then hit the showers which are all within the spruce changing rooms complete with a full range of amenities. 

Sync Cycle

One of the more affordable studios to spin at, Sync Cycle is located at both Yio Chu Kang and East Coast Road. Teachers here are friendly, and will make an effort to get to know you and give you the help you will require. Go for their two for $40 trial to get a feel of their classes first before you commit.
