I have heard a lot of buzz about this studio, even though it has only been open since Labor Day weekend. John Terlingo definitely has a following, and after taking one of his classes, I can see why! His energy is infectious, and it is apparent he is passionate about what he does. I walked into the (full) 9:30am Friday class, and I could tell that people were excited about being there. I had registered online two nights before, and 22 of 30 bikes had already been reserved!
One of the things I had heard was that he is known for his great playlists. This time was no exception! There were times during the class that I felt the music was doing some of the work for me. It was that good. Good music makes such a difference! The time flew by. We did lots of different climbs, sprints, etc. During one song, we did movements with light hand weights for a little upper body work. At the end of class was a meditation/cool down. There is retail space in the lobby with workout and casual wear. Can’t wait to go back for another ride!
