Psycle

Time Out says

Delete the ‘c’ and add a ‘ps’ and your standard gym-based cycle becomes part club night, part dance class, part spinning session. As the lights go down and the lasers flash, you’re told to get ready to ‘bounce to the beat’, make rave arms and move weights, all while cycling on and off the saddle. The instructors have the boundless enthusiasm of a ‘Fame’ kid: if you’re the type that can ‘lose yourself in the music’, this class is fun-filled cardio. Like the sound of a boogie in a bike-filled basement, instead of the usual strip-lit slog? Give Psycle a spin.

I did a bit of a tour of boutiques to test out their spin and this one was ok. Instructor was a bit unhelpful and seemed more interested in playing his decks than helping me when I got confused with the moves. But maybe just had an unlucky experience. The staff were really nice at reception and venue was clean

Psycle is not for the faint hearted – a dark room with flashing lights, loud music and extremely enthusiastic instructors. This fitness studio’s spinning classes are super full on, but they’re an excellent work out! The staff are really friendly and the facilities are lovely, complete with GHDs in the changing rooms! If you’re after a sweat session in a lovely environment, this is the place to go.

Another amazing studio! Lovely facilities and quality spinning classes that make you feel energised!

After all the (p)hype around Psycle, I was excited to give it a go. In reality, it's much like most of the spin oriented studios around, high volume music, a lot of fast peddling without any resistance and a mere 3 hours recovery time on my heart rate monitor. Good if you're a novice and want to try spin for the first time (although at the class price point, it's quite expensive for a first time) but for advanced riders, I would seek more of a challenge.

I love a spin class and Psycle do it better than most in London. The new Shoreditch studio looks great, the instructors are motivating, reception staff friendly and the playlists are fun. You walk out of each class feeling as though you were pushed to your limit. The Shoreditch studio also offers Barre classes that will make your legs shake, and HIIT sessions that will exhaust. Be warned the changing rooms are small, and get very crowded in the morning, leave plenty of time for a shower before work (you will need it!).

Helping you to feel psyched about the prospect of exercise. For those of you who aren't massive gym goers this place is for you... simply turn up with your gym gear (no need for shoes, cleats are provided free of charge) and a bottle of wate and you're ready to ride. With catchy tunes and instructors full of energy (it's contagious in this place) you can make easy work of a 45 minute class. Keep an out for theme rides such as repsycle the 90s which offer something slightly different.

As it's January I've been joining the rest of London trying out a few new 'fun' and different classes to shed the cheese coma of Christmas. It started with Ride Republic and I had my first psycle class today. Never have I ever raved on a Sunday morning in the deep dark depths of Oxford street. My friend cancelled last minute and as a first time player she refunded a credit as a gesture of goodwill, good customer service tick! Changing rooms are compact and filled with all types of girlie things so just bring your water and you're ready. There are no clocks in the room so it's easy to get absorbed into the music and the enthusiastic instructor gets you bopping like never before on the bike. Weights and press ups on a bike were a first but added something different to your usual gym spin sesh! Enjoyable but tough first class which doesn't fully cater to spin virgins but can't wait to use the rest of my January credit offer.

Realistically this place is not very different from a typical spinning class in a gym. There are a bunch of cycles in a sweaty basement room with a motivational-style instructor. There are some funky shoes you wear, which may not be available in normal gyms but this was the only real difference. It is also not a great option for the uninitiated - the assumption here is that you are an expert spinner and you can pick up all the exercise and the speed changes etc without the instructor having to pay any special attention to beginners. 


Very much image-focused - anyone even slightly overweight likely to feel very self-conscious. It is a like catwalk for spinners. Avoid unless you are a regular spinner who knows what they are doing.

I don't really like exercising, or spinning, but I do value the importance of it and am all for trying new funky and potentially fun exercise classes. I went to Psycle as I was told it was fun, and that isn't actually wrong. It's essentially a spin class in a nightclub. It's dark with neon lights with loud music, the difference being no one is drunk, but everyone is certainly dancing on their bikes! The instructors are very passionate and give loud empowering motivational gems. You definitely sweat! Give it a go, you burn the calories and I even enjoyed it! 


Spin classes at Psycle are one of my most favourite things to do! I've been a member since their opening week, and the awesome music, energy and full-on sweat workout that is offered is just like no other fitness class I've been to. They have really fun events and parties, as well as the weekly Tuesday run club with Tameka - once you join you just can't stop going!
