Flywheel CCDC

From a press release:

“Tuesday, June 28, indoor cycling brand Flywheel Sports open[ed] it’s second D.C. studio in CityCenterDC. The facility, located within the vibrant retail and residential district, features stadium-style indoor cycling as well as FlyBarre, a complementary total-body sculpting class. With a staggering 73 bikes and 22 mats, the CCDC studio marks Flywheel’s largest D.C. location, while boasting more than 36 nationwide facilities. Individual Flywheel and FlyBarre classes start at $28, which includes indoor cycling shoe rental.

Flywheel CCDC features the brand’s new look and enhanced personalized in-stadium technology aimed at elevating each rider’s individual needs and experience. The studio includes Flywheel’s signature tech pack — a small computer affixed to each high-tech bike accurately showcases each rider’s Torq (resistance), RPM (speed) and Power throughout the ride. Additionally, the tech pack greets riders by their first name prior to the start of class. Riders will still be able to voluntarily choose to display their performance stats on the flat-screen TorqBoard located at the front of every studio, showing off class leaders and allowing for friendly competition.

Flywheel also features new class offerings alongside signature favorites including FlyBeats — an endurance ride set entirely to the beat of a carefully curated playlist. The D.C. location will soon offer Power 30 — a high-impact and results-driven 30-minute ride that packs the punch of a signature 45-minute Flywheel class.

After each ride, comprehensive data will be stored and made available to riders on the recently revamped app as well as on the dashboard of the website: www.flywheelsports.com, facilitating individual goal setting and additional performance tracking. Riders will also be able to enjoy class suggestions based off prior experience, including class time and type preference and instructor teaching style, one of the many unique elements positioning the brand at the forefront of the fitness industry.

“We’re excited to open our second home in the nation’s capital,” says Flywheel co-founder Ruth Zukerman. “This is an exciting time for Flywheel as we’re enhancing our experience for riders across a number of areas, including our class offerings, our website, our app and our in-stadium technology that layers in wellness and community, in addition to fitness. We strive to provide an immersive experience from the minute you walk through our doors and CityCenterDC will be no different.”

Flywheel CityCenterDC is located at 824 9th St. NW Unit B.”

    28$ for a class that is 73 people? Is more better?

      Yikes. I liked Flywheel Dupont (mostly because I go when only half of the bikes are full) but 73 bikes seems too crowded. No thanks.

    • Hill Denizen

      They have to make serious bank.

      classpass is a great deal.

  • 73 considering the location, and size of the residences above (whether they are empty/filled is another story), doesn’t seem like that many. It doesn’t look “stadium” like to me though, they all appear to be on the same level?

      if you look in the bottom right corner of the photo, you can see the small height increase for the top level from the level below it. it doesn’t appear to be more than a couple of inches, which seems a little on the low side. perhaps it is just the perspective of the photo that diminishes it.

      I was there monday for a free preview class, it is stadium, just like the dupont location.

  • Ashley

    I went to a studio preview class on Sunday, I am a regular Dupont rider and the experience was exactly the same. I walked in and clearly the room felt bigger but it did not have any effect on the experience, I wouldn’t of guessed there was 73 bikes. The atmosphere was awesome., the studio is super swanky and well done.

  • Kate

    The interior looks like a suburban mega-church.

    Went to a regular cycle class last night– love the new space! Very similar to the Dupont location but even closer to my house, so 11/10, will go again.
