I'll definitely be back the bikes were amazing and I've done spin class at a lot of places.
I've gone to a number of places offering spin class and can honestly say this is the best! The venue is top notch, offering the all-important mood lighting and top rate sound system. The bikes are perfect - easy to adjust, multiple hand positions and great bike computers that are (thankfully) easy to read. But of course what gives the Fort top grades is the instructors, who are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and crazy fit! However they also understand the culture of spin and let everyone enjoy the class at their own pace (but they'll push you if you're so inclined!). Perfect - thanks for opening this place.
I have been a member of Fort Cycle since the day it opened! I have been a member of other gyms that offer spin classes, and I am confident in saying that Fort Cycle is the leader of the pack!!! There are many reasons why Fort Cycle, in my eyes, is above other gyms in their local area: - amazing facility and state of the art sound system, lighting, etc. - high quality spin bikes with console modules that are used in the classes. and they have enough spin bikes to accommodate large classes which reduces the chances of not getting a bike (biggest disappoint I had in my previous spin gym) - great camaraderie between the trainers and the members - variety of spin classes and times taught by world class instructors - upcoming smoothie bar, which I cannot wait until that opens! - opportunity to join Fortitude gym for an all-around comprehensive gym membership - wonderful and friendly staff that greet with you a smile each and every day.
Lisa and David have created the best Spin gym in the greater Manchester area!!! I look forward to many more classes and many years spinning my way to an even healthier self!
I just had my first class today, I am impressed with EVERYTHING. The facilities were great (down to the details of the staff noting my bike settings), checking in to my class, the class itself was awesome. I will definitely be back for more!
FortCycle is an amazing exercise experience with the lighting, candles and high energy music to get you in the right mindset. The instructors are phenomenal with their level of enthusiasm to push you while making you feel comfortable whether it's your first spin class or you have been riding forever! I have truly enjoyed the spin classes and the inviting vibe they have created. Congrats on the opening of Fort Cycle and Green Bike Smoothies-everyone should enjoy the ride here!
FortCycle is by far my favorite place to workout! Not only is the atmosphere great, but the instructors are awesome!! Every workout is different and the instructors really know how to push you while understanding your limits at the same time. I love the dim lighting and candlelight around the instructor, it really creates a great cycle environment! The bikes allow for both cycling shoes and regular sneakers too which is great because I don't have cycling shoes. The bike technology allows me to track my rides and look at my progress, which you most definitely will see if you go to FortCycle! I can't get enough!
I have been going to FortCycle twice weekly since they opened and their neighboring fitness facility Fortitude since Fall of last year and just in that short time feel like I have been totally welcomed into their community. The owners and staff always make you feel like part of a family there when you walk thru the door. I have taken cycle classes with Lisa, Kevin and Christine C., they all do a fantastic job keeping you motivated and challenged to the best of your own personal abilities thru the entire 45 minute ride.
The studio is gorgeous, I’ve always loved the look and feel of the restored Millyard area in Manchester, the bikes are top-of-the line and excellent music to keep you moving for the 45 minutes.
Highly recommend this spot for all fitness levels. I’ve been going to the 6am classes and have found it really impacts my mood and energy level for my work days. I have a job that involves very long hours with little co-worker interaction. I wanted to find a morning gym with classes where I could interact with other people before starting my day, FortCycle has been the perfect spot for just that.
