Back in December we heard Flywheel cycling studio was coming to the former Visions Theater in Dupont. Thanks to a reader for the update on the signage.

  • Is it weird that the first thing that comes to mind with this place is the old Marx Brothers sketches as Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel?

  • Sure are a lot of cycling studios popping up lately. As an avid cyclist, I HATE riding indoors on my trainer, so I can’t imagine paying a ton of money every month just for that. Going to the gym is a break from cycling, not an addition to it. (spinning every once in a while is cool, just not every day).

    • Seriously… i dont really like spending more than 30-40 mins on the trainer
      its also annyoing when people who do these classes tell me that i couldnt hang in one of them.
      now im not denying that it would be a good workout but i highly doubt it is more of a workout than the miles i put down on trails or riding around d city

    • I’m an indoor cycling instructor (and an outdoor rider) and while there are definitely “real” cyclists who come to classes, a lot of the attendees are not, so they don’t have the same frame of reference. They are there to get a good, sweaty workout in a group setting–and there’s nothing wrong with that. That being said, I am amazed by how many cycling-only studios are popping up. Seems like a missed opportunity to offer other forms of training that complement cycling.

      • So true. Aside from this place there’s one in the West End, at 14th and W, near 9th and U and somewhere in northeast. They’re aren’t cheap either.

      • I’ll totally agree with you that spinning is a great workout. I think I usually pushed myself a bit harder than most people since I actually ride, but I’d come out of a class dead tired and completely drenched in sweat. I just don’t see the point of paying full gym prices to do only spinning/cycling. I go out and ride for free, then pay Elevate Interval Fitness to give me a full-body ass kicking.

  • I miss Visions.
