What to wear?
Wear fitted comfortable workout clothes and sneakers or cycling shoes. Our Keiser M3+ bikes have shimano combo pedals that will accommodate SPD cycling shoes and/or sneakers on the non-cleat platform that has adjustable cage straps. We recommend wearing hard soled sneakers rather than some of the lighter more flexible soled shoes.
What should I bring for class?
Yourself! We have all the equipment needed for all fusion classes, including weights, resistance bands, matts, and blocks. Complimentary towels and a filtered water fountain are available along with bottled water for $2.50.
Do I need cycling shoes?
It's up to you! Cycling shoes create a more stable and efficient pedal stroke. We have shimano combo pedals on our bikes that fit SPD cycling shoes and/or sneakers. Sneakers are required for all Flow FIT classes because you'll be doing exercises off of the bike.
Do you have a locker room or showers?
Unfortunately we do not have the space for locker rooms or showers. There are two large restrooms and a storage area for your personal belongings.
How early should I come for my first ride?
We recommend that you come at least 15 minutes before class starts. This will allow plenty of time to get you acquainted with the studio and fitted properly on your bike.
Is there any way to make the seat more comfortable?
This is usually the number one concern for most new cyclists. First of all, the seat does get more comfortable as you begin to cycle more routinely. You might want to consider wearing padded bike shorts or bring a padded bike seat cushion when you're getting started.
What if I'm new to cycling and/or haven't worked out in a while?
COME join us for a ride! The best thing about cycling is that it is INCLUSIVE. It doesn't matter what your current fitness level is or if you've ever taken a cycling class before. All instructors will ensure you are fitted properly on your bike and feel comfortable and confident. While we offer challenging workouts, you can ALWAYS adjust your intensity level to fit your personal needs and goals.
How is FLOW different from taking a cycling class at the gym?
Almost every gym offers cycling classes, but what makes FLOW so different is that we offer a complete full body workout, precise instruction and guidance as well as fusion classes. We are committed to creating exceptional experiences for every rider. We know that you'll love our unique classes and all of the lovely PERKS that the studio offers. Just come by and check us out, your first ride is FREE.
How many calories are burned per class?
It depends on your height, weight, and level of exertion. But research shows that on average individuals burn roughly 500-800 calories in 45 minutes.
Can I ride if I'm pregnant?
Always check with your healthcare professional when considering your workout regime. We have plenty of pregnant riders (including the owner) who are able to ride up until their due date!
Will my legs get bulky?
Cycling is not only a great cardiovascular workout in which you can burn some major calories, but it's also a great way to build strength. NO your legs will not get "bulky" from cycling!
How old do you have to be to ride?
You have to be at least 13 years of age. All underage riders must have parental consent in order to participate in class.
Is there childcare at the studio?
No, unfortunately we do not have the space necessary to provide this service.
How do I sign up for a ride?

How far in advance can I sign up for classes?
Right now you can register for unlimited classes in advance.
What is the class cancelation policy?
All class cancellations must be made 2 hours in advance of class. If you cancel after this time period it would be considered a "late cancellation" and you account will be charged for this class.
What happens if I don't show up for a class that I reserved a spot in?
You will be charged for this class. Unfortunately when you reserve a bike and do not show, you are preventing another rider from being able to attend class.
How will I know if I've been moved from the wait list into class?
You will receive an email notification that you are now registered for class. You can receive this notification up until 2 hours prior to class.
