LifesCycle – Recycle Your Life
LifesCycle Scotland’s first dedicated indoor cycling studio is run by Spinning® and indoor cycling enthusiasts with backgrounds in health and wellbeing/fitness and sport.
The LifesCycle Team has created a space where people can Recycle their lives and cycle for Pleasure! Where people can feel relaxed and able to join in, where they will feel good, whatever their age, body shape, level of fitness or circumstances.
If you would like to know a little more about how LifesCycle came into being then this short introduction may be just what you need.
“We are a small outfit choosing not to operate in the corporate gym culture – which is why our riders love us! We know a gym can be intimidating – and for that reason we have chosen not to create that at LifesCycle. You’ll find our environment relaxed and friendly, a mixture of New York Loft and Steampunk. If you prefer your Spinning in a pristine, packaged and perfect environment with lots of extra facilities – you may not ‘get us’ at first – but stick with us, you might just end up loving us!
We focus on the dynamics of each ride and the needs of the riders within the class. Like our funky and urban space, we are unique. We think our product is special, we’ll look after you from the moment you walk through that front door, we try to help if you need it, with advice and training tips, with proper bike set up, whatever it takes to make sure you are getting the best out of your time with us.”
But LifesCycle is also about Community, supporting our Friends in their endeavours and working with others to give back the energy and backing that we get from all our Supporters. Watch out for regular and special events in support of various good causes – and of course just in the cause of having a good time.
Something for Everyone?
More and more people are looking to pay for experiences, rather than just products. Edinburgh LifeCycle will focus on providing each customer with an experience that will make them want to come back for more. Indoor cycling has a reputation for intensity – and it can be intense. But our classes will appeal to beginners, hard-core cyclists, and everyone in between. We train our instructors to coach riders to adapt their workout to their own experience and comfort level in a non-intimidating way.
You Get What You Pay For!
LifeCycle’s hallmark is that there are no excess activities and the focus is on cycling and activities that are complementary to indoor cycling, which makes it more of a specialty shop and less of an all-inclusive business. We want to keep that ‘home-spun’ feeling to it and for people to be comfortable in our studio. We want them to feel like they know us.
The Personal Touch
Please do not hesitate to get in touch to ask advice about Spinning®, LifesCycle or which classes would suit you. Send us an email and we’ll answer all your questions or phone/ text us and we’ll call you back.
We hope to be able to encourage community groups and people who may not normally have access to regular exercise for whatever reason to come in to the centre. We also have some additional bikes so could get out and about to visit groups too. Again, if you have any ideas or contacts do pass them on.
Health and Wellbeing
The link between physical activity and physical health has long been known, but the link between physical activity and mental health has been less explored, until now. LifesCycle want to help in the Scottish Government’s goals, particularly with the Games Legacy, to ensure that everyone, regardless of where they live, their age or income, is aware of ways to improve their mental health by participating in physical activity and sport.
LifesCycle hopes to help forge these links and invite all members of the community to join in rides which will relax, stimulate and energise each individual in their own way. It is hoped that we can help in the improvements people make to their mental health through getting active. LifesCycle is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of the community and hopes to be able to organize regular charity events to help raise the profile of such causes.
