CycleBar, a new concept in premium indoor cycling that offers a high-energy workout in a concert-like atmosphere, will open in August at 1241 E. SH 114, Southlake, in the Carroll Pointe shopping center.
The 3,200-square-foot studio, owned locally by Marcus and Amber Capone; Kelly and Tim Ross; as well as partners Missy and Steve Nichols; and Kay and Michael Murphy, will offer riders an upscale fitness experience with spa-like amenities, concierge service, retail for purchase, pay-per-class and membership options.
"Southlake is a big, health-conscious town, and I had read about this concept probably about a year ago and thought that Southlake would be a perfect town to open up an indoor cycling studio," Marcus said.
Marcus said the studio will offer four classes: classic, connect, endurance and performance. Also, each rider takes a 50-minute ride that includes music, energy-enhancing video graphics and rider-specific performance data in a state-of-the-art, IMAX-style CycleTheatre. The CycleTheatre features tiers for 50 bikes plus LED lighting, two 70” widescreen LED monitors for graphics, and top-of-the-line audio with a DJ booth. Riders can also track performance data via CycleStats and can download music used in the class session. There will also be a coffee bar available.
Marcus said the amenities included with the ride is one of the reasons the studio is unique from others in the area.
"It's dynamic, it's fun," he said. "We also have the top instructors in the fitness industry. I think we offer an experience that none of the other indoor cycling studios can compare to."
He added CycleBar will also have themed-ride days like "happy hour Friday," or wine down Wednesday."
The studio will provide shoes for free, along with complimentary chilled water and snacks. Along with lockers that have coded keypads for easy access and safe storage for riders' belongings, CycleBar also has separate powder rooms, showers, soft towels, robes, hair ties, wet clothing bags and other toiletries to use.
At the heart of CycleBar, Marcus said is a passion for giving back to the community. As a community ambassador, CycleBar has created CycleGiving, a philanthropic movement partnering with local organizations and charities to create indoor cycling charity rides to support the organizations’ causes.
"We will supply the studio and the instructor for the organization," Marcus said. "One hundred percent of the proceeds will go toward the foundation. So far we have reached out to over 30 charities in the area."
