Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist looking for a change of pace or a spinning newbie wondering where to start, there’s a local spot for you. Clip yourself in and check out the best places in Nashville that offer indoor cycling.
The Top Spin Studios in Nashville
Good luck finding a local studio with louder beats or tougher arm workouts than Verticity. All classes have a “pack” mentality—you ride as a team here—and many have a themed playlist. As with other studios, each instructor has their own flavor and preferred method of motivation, but you’ll always walk out feeling accomplished.
Among the newest to join Nashville’s spinning club, CycleBar is already a hit thanks to its sky-high energy and perks like complimentary shoes, water and fruit. A free 30-minute intro session is available for new riders—or you can jump right into the regular 40- and 45-minute classes. There are even a few 60-minute power rides for the cycling fanatics.
KrankFit’s classes include 50- and 60-minute blocks of straightforward cycling—which are challenging enough—as well as a killer 30/30 class that begins with 30 minutes of cycling and ends with 30 minutes of high-intensity interval strength training.
Want to go hard? Vigor’s standard cycling class is a grueling cross-training experience, with the infusion of arms and hills. If your body needs something slightly more gentle, Cycle Then Zen features 30 minutes of high-intensity spinning and 30 minutes of guided meditation.
First things first: World Gym’s floors light up. But even if they didn’t have that particular wow factor, this would still be a must-try indoor cycling experience due to the facility’s world-class bikes—they’re called Stages SC3, if you’re curious.
Studio 51st/Music City Spin Room
This cute neighborhood studio in The Nations has a special deal for new clients that can’t be beat: five classes—choose from spinning, bounce, dance, yoga and BarreAmped—for just $35.
Don’t underestimate the Y when it comes to fun group classes. While each Nashville branch is different, many offer cycling options on par with trendy studios. The organization’s general “no judgment” vibe makes it a good place to test out spinning for the first time.
