Flywheel Sports is opening its second and largest indoor cycling and barre studio in the District at CityCenterDC this month, bringing a taste of luxury fitness to pair with the high-end shopping destination. The boutique fitness brand’s first DC studio opened in March 2015, bringing the competitive, tech-enhanced class into the Washington region.

The CityCenterDC location will host 72 bikes in a stadium-seating arrangement, each of which has a computer attached to track the bike’s resistance, speed, and how much energy the rider is expending. Riders can opt in to have these stats displayed on the flatscreen “TorqBoards” at the front of the class, which displays a real-time record of the riders pedaling the hardest. These stats are also available post-class through the brand’s app and website, where riders can monitor their progress.

The location will also feature Flybarre, the studio body-sculpting class, and is planning to rollout a couple of new twists on the classic cycling class offered by Flywheel, such as FlyBeats, an endurance-focused class that’s timed to an upbeat song list, and Power 30, an intense class that’s supposed to cram 45 minutes’ worth of sweating into a 30-minute session.

“This is an exciting time for Flywheel as we’re enhancing our experience for riders across a number of areas, including our class offerings, our website, our app, and our in-stadium technology that layers in wellness and community, in addition to fitness,” says Flywheel cofounder Ruth Zukerman in a press release. “We strive to provide an immersive experience from the minute you walk through our doors and CityCenterDC will be no different.”
Flywheel is slated to open June 28 at 824 9th St. NW, Unit B. Cycling and barre classes purchased individually start at $28.
Editor’s Note: Flywheel CityCenterDC will not open with Power 30 classes available, but will add them to the class schedule in the near future.
