Cycle City Fitness spins to health
MADISON – Cycle City Fitness has opened as Madison’s first indoor cycling boutique.
President Jon Adkins is sole owner of Cycle City. “I decided to locate my business in Madison because my wife loved going to indoor cycling classes and there wasn’t really a gym or facility in the area that focused on just those types of classes,” he said.
Adkins’ interest in physical fitness dates back to running track and weightlifting in college. “Cycling is a great way to stay in shape and have a great time while doing it,” he said.
Unlike other local gyms, Cycle City specializes in indoor cycling and “showing people how it can be a full-body workout,” Adkins said. A member can reserve a specific bike online and avoid worry about not getting in a desired class.
Trainers and employees are licensed as indoor cycling instructors. “On your first visit to Cycle City, our instructors get you properly fitted for a bike so you can maximize your workout and minimize the risk of injury,” he said.
During class, music helps cyclists through their workout. The calendar will feature special theme rides with concentration on 1980s, disco, pop/rock and hip-hop.
Classes accommodate skills from beginner to advanced.
“The great thing about indoor cycling is the instructor guides you through the whole ride. While they’re coaching you through, you can still work at your own pace,” Adkins said. “Our cycle room has theater lighting so members can focus on the ride and workout and not have to worry about other riders.”
No experience is necessary to ride at Cycle City. Licensed instructors provide training for people at all fitness levels. “To give people a chance to try us out, we offer all first-time guests a free ride. You can register for a free ride on our website,” Adkins said.
Jon and wife Veranda have lived in Madison three years. Their daughter Jasmine is a high school sophomore.
