Working With Pure Indoor Cycling

For the greater part of 2016, Print Room and Pure Indoor Cycling worked closely for video and photo production. We here at Print Room had an absolute delight collaborating with the team from Pure Indoor Cycling, so we would like to dedicate this page to them.

What is Pure Indoor Cycling?

 Pure Indoor Cycling is a spinning studio, located in San Diego that opened in the summer of 2016.  The owner of the studio is Maria Disla, while the studio manager is Kelsey Dick. Late last year, Maria was invited for an interview with “The American Dream”:

Before we dive deeper into the studio’s charitable ways, let’s talk about the studio itself.

The studio is open 7 days a week, with an average of 4-5 classes being held per day. Each class is 45 minutes long, which is more than enough for a spinning class.

Just by taking a look at the reception room, it’s quite clear that the business was recently opened, and fine detail has been placed towards design:

In the actual spinning studio, you’ll find an open layout, with colorful ceiling and walls, as well as a crisp sound system. The studio is adequately equipped for 25-30 riders at the same time:

We were also taken by surprise by the level of detail and amenities that were available within the locker rooms. The women’s and men’s locker room were spacious, clean, modern design, and included all the essentials to leave the facility just as you entered it. We have to also give credit to the studio for providing a free pair of spinning shoes for each rider for the duration of the class.

What is Spinning?

We also had the same question before meeting Maria at the studio. What’s so unique with spinning that I can’t replicate in a gym or by a run outside?

Allow me to start off by saying that after my 45 spinning sessions, my Fitbit read a calorie loss of 626. I’ll be frank here, I’ve never in my life lost that many calories within 45 minutes.

If you commit to internet research, you’ll find that in a typical spinning class, you should expect to lose between 550-750 calories depending on how hard you push yourself.

You may think that spinning is simply cycling on a bicycle, but that’s just far from the truth. For starters, the “bicycles” found in spinning studios are specifically engineered for optimal weight loss. The bicycles you may find at a local gym run for $300-$500 while bicycles in spinning studios, such as the ones in Pure Indoor Cycling easily cost over $1,000 each.

The levels of adjustment you’ll find on a spinning bicycle is simply not rivaled by the bicycles you’ll find at a gym – plain and simple.

When class began with Maria, from the first minute to the last, there wasn’t a moment of silence. Over the sound of music being played, Maria made sure to guide us through the class, kept us pushing harder and kept us on course. That right there is what makes spinning class worth it; your instructor. I can guarantee you that if I had an instructor that barely uttered a word, then I would have dedicated a fraction of myself to the class, as opposed to an instructor that actually cares.

At first glance, it may seem that spinning would be a physical exercise dominated by women riders, but in reality, it wasn’t as skewed. For the particular class that I partook in, it was around 60% women and 40% men. Now keep in mind, during the class, hand weights are introduced and all the riders, including myself, were guided into incorporating upper body training with our lower body training.

How Much Money is Spinning?

The cost of spinning comes down to how often you plan on attending a session. For example, this is how Pure Indoor Cycling charges their riders:

If you decide to opt-in for a ride here and there, then you’re going to pay around $25 per ride – rather pricey. On the other hand, if you decide to go for the “Monthly (Auto-Renew)” plan, and are able to attend a class each day of the month, then you’ll be averaging a cost of $6.66 per class. Yes, less than $7 for 45 minutes with a great instructor.

Does Pure Indoor Cycling Have Good Reviews?

Well…does the sun rise every morning? Hah.

In my opinion, the studio is fantastic, especially the people. But don’t take my word, let’s look at their online reviews.

To recap, we had a wonderful time working with Maria in a professional manner, and also as customers at her studio. If you ever find yourself in the San Diego area, then we strongly recommend you stop by Pure Indoor Cycling and take a class, you won’t regret it. Just to add icing to the cake, this month, Maria was voted as the most liked female fitness influencer in San Diego!
