Flywheel Chicago

20 08 2012


Dear Flywheel,

I have never written you a love letter but after a year of frequenting your Gold Coast studio, it’s time to tell you how I really feel.

I like to think that when you started your first studio you were thinking of me. You knew that I’m competitive, hence the Torq board. You knew I am sweat-er, hence the entirely dark room (save the spotlight for the instructor, of course). You also knew of my love of time efficiency- 45 minutes to burn a boatload of calories is pure genius.

And when you opened your 1st Chicago location, it’s like you knew I would eventually move right down the street. If that’s not true love, I don’t know what is.

I utterly loathe waking up before the Today show is on but when a 6am sweat sesh with Antonia is on the line, I am up, ready to clip in. And 9 times out of 10, my boyfriend is on the bike next to me, excited to get in a workout before heading to the office. Speaking of “FlyRyChi”, as he is known on the Torq board, I tried to get him to go to yoga with me for years with no success. One time at Flywheel 4 months ago and he is hooked. It has given us a totally new kind of date…one where we battle is out for PR’s. High fives and sweaty post-ride hugs all around!

So thank you, Flywheel. Thank you for bringing your stadium cycling to Chicago and adding all sorts of awesome to my workout routine. One thing though- can Antonia teach every single class? She is the Queen of motivation, plays that Jay-Z/Wonderwall remix that I cannot get enough of and it’s at the point where we are basing our schedules around when she teaches. K? Thanks!

Love and Torq Board domination,

Awesome! I couldn’t agree more!! Becca and I just went to Kate’s 7:30 class tonight and we rocked it!! I PR’d too!! I love the torque board and it’s always pushing me harder!! Try some of Kate’s classes too- her music is great and she’s an amazing motivator!! Miss you! Hope to see you soon!

Uh duh! Flywheel rocks my world. I have to add Kate to my Antonia/Michale weekly mash up now. Feeling crappy? Flywheel! Feeling hungover? Flywheel! Feeling competitive? Flywheel. It works for everything. Frickin love this place.
