Time Out says

This indoor cycling studio puts a new spin on your average exercise class

One thing that the team at Bodhi & Ride want to get out there is that their classes aren’t just spin classes. Yes, you'll be on a stationary bike and you'll up your intensity in accordance with instruction. But you get clip-in shoes, instruction about hand positions and a proper seat adjustment. There are DJ-mixed tunes and the mood lights keep things calm, cool and surprisingly dark. You’ll feel like you’ve stumbled into a rave rather than workout.

These classes also go further than the usual thigh burn, with hand weights thrown into the mix to work your arms and core. You'll get an all-over body workout, and yes, you'll have that nice-sore feeling the next day of having worked your muscles to their limit. Coordination is key here, but if you can get through a Zumba class without tripping over your own feet, you’ll be golden.

The CBD studio is popular with the local work crowd offering early morning rides, lunchtime express and after work rides. Your class takes place in the basement-level Ride Chamber which feels like a crowded dancefloor. Get ready to sweat.

As well as the city studio, Bodhi & Ride also has studios in Port Melbourne and South Yarra.
