We are THRILLED to announce that our Metropole cycle studio is next in line to receive the upgrades currently found at U Street and coming soon to all VIDA locations! These changes will totally transform your cycle experience from start to finish. Of course, we’ve got to shut things down for a couple weeks while renovations are taking place, but we promise it will be worth the wait!
Here are the highlights of what to expect in April!
- We’re expanding the studio with stadium-style seating and going from 21 to 30 bikes! We’ve mindfully planned out the layout to ensure the best usage of space and equipment, so you’ll always have a great view of the road in front of you no matter where you’re set up!
- A new and improved sound system, including sound proofing and a new microphone for riding to a great beat and never missing a cue.
- Vibrant LED lighting around the studio to further enhance your aesthetic experience in the zone!
- The introduction of the revolutionary Matrix IC7 “Coach by Color” bikes! These bikes allow riders to customize their workouts with what’s called their ‘Functional Threshold Wattage (FTW.)’ Think improved accountability, better coaching and incredible workouts! You’ll first take a personalized test on the bike to find what your true FTW number is, and you’ll use that to set up your ride each time you get on the bike! Stay tuned for a list of dates/times available to take your FTW test!
During renovations, members will have access to our U Street location so they can get to know the new bikes and still get their cardio workouts in! Lunchtime classes in the Cycle Studio at Metropole will be cancelled March 28-April 1 and ALL classes in the Cycle Studio at Metropole will be cancelled April 4-8. Thanks for your patience! #getexcited
