YOUR FIRST CYCLE CLASS


   

What to Wear

We invite you to remove your shoes upon entering the studio to start the process of unwinding and to help us provide a clean space. For classes, you’ll feel comfortable wearing a moisture-wicking tee shirt or tank top with form-fitting capris or shorts. Avoid long, loose-fitting pants and 100% cotton clothing.

 

Nourish and Hydrate

The key to a healthy body is staying hydrated. Drink water before, during, and after your class. For Cycle, we recommend eating a simple carbohydrate snack 30 minutes before the class to keep your blood sugar up and energy strong. 


Account & Waiver

While walk-ins are accepted, we highly encourage clients to make an online reservation as classes tend to fill up quickly. Create a client account and agree to the online liability waiver. Clients under 18 must have their parent or guardian sign the waiver in person. You can create an account on the website or download our app. 


Arrive

We encourage you to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the class start time to give yourself some un-rushed time to check-in and get settled. For your first class we provide you with everything you need from shoes to towels, we’ve got you covered. 


Check-In

Always check-in for your class with the front desk. If you reserved a bike in advance, your name would appear on the sign-in sheet. Initial next to your name so that we know you’re here. It’s important to sign-in for every class in which you attend. 


Late Arrival

We will hold reservations up until 5 minutes before class start time.  After this time, if there's a waitlist for a full class, your reservation may be "gifted" to a fellow rider who's waiting. To maintain a sacred space, avoid disruption and reduce the likelihood of injury, we cannot always accept late arrivals and will not allow entry 5 minutes after a class begins. 


Gear 

Shoes- For safety and effectiveness, our classes require cycling shoes that provide a more stable ride and allow you to work the correct muscle groups. Shoes are complimentary. If you already have cycling shoes, our pedals are LOOK and SPD compatible. 


Changing Rooms 

For your convenience, we offer immaculate men and women’s facilities each equipped with showers, towels, and spa-grade amenities. We thought of every detail and provide hair dryers, curling irons and grooming products. 


Lockers 

Our custom digital lockers have coded keypads to keep your personal items secure during the ride.  They are easy to use, and directions outside the lockers.


Bike Setup & Safety

Anchorage Cycle classes offer a high-intensity cardio workout. Like any new physical endeavor, you may want to consult your doctor first. Before class, make sure to check that all bike adjustments are tight, your cycling shoes are securely clipped into the pedals, and that you test the brake.
