We are fortunate to have a variety of cycling studios from which to choose in Dallas. But, if you’re being honest, can you really tell the difference between them? Probably not.
A new studio on Lovers Lane hopes to differentiate itself by transforming the entire sensory experience. After nearly 20 years of teaching spin in Los Angeles, Parker Williams has returned to Texas with Ride House.
To appeal to all senses during a workout, Ride House considers textures, colors, aromas, lighting and music. The studio has 45 state-of-the-art Schwinn Carbon Blue bikes, a concert-quality sound system and custom-made LED lights.
Nationally certified instructors specialize in motivation through exercise. The workout is said to burn up to 800 calories per session.
However, Ride House goes beyond just the cycling. Williams wants to take care of his customers pre- and post-ride as well.
“Although the indoor cycling room is our main focus, we are also the only boutique cycling studio in Dallas that offers a secondary studio, which is used for stretching before and after class,” Williams says.
“Studio B is equipped with a stability ball and foam rollers, and our staff is always willing to show clients stretches specifically for cycling. This is encouraged to help with recovery and better overall health.”
Starting this spring, Ride House is offering deep stretching, core classes and body suspension training. It also is set to offer a hybrid cycling class that combines 30 minutes on the bike with a session in Studio B involving core, stretching or suspension training. The Ride House also plans to incorporate the Jillian Michaels BodyShred workout.
Individual classes costs $25; unlimited packages start at $195 a month. You can reserve a spot online, and the first two classes are free.
“Our main goal is to build a friendly, happy, healthy fitness community and serve the needs of our clients in a luxurious setting,” William says. “We want to offer a variety of classes and instructor styles so each person can find the perfect fit for their fitness level, goals and, sometimes, mood.
“We really do want them to feel like that are guests in our house.”
