After taking New York and London by storm, the cycle fitness craze has touched down in Canberra as Psycle Life opens its doors on the Kingston Foreshore.

Psycle Life is an indoor cycling experience like no other that promotes an unimaginable level of wellbeing and personal achievement. The classes are a high energy body honing workout which focus on fat-burning cardio and fun-filled choreography.

This was the spiel I was sold on as I entered the new fitness studio last night. As an avid coffee drinker, gym membership drop-out and a cinnamon scroll enthusiast, I would probably not be the kind of person you would normally see enter the doors of an intense fitness studio.

Yet, as I walked in the door of my first Psycle Life class I was full of confidence that I could take on the challenge. First impressions were fantastic! The team have put together a modern interior complete with a calming balance of charcoal tones and timber.

Psycle Life’s modern fit-out and facilities include a number of change rooms, showers and lockers decked out with towels and water bottles to keep you hydrated throughout your ride.

Entering the studio was not as daunting as I initially thought and the indoor bikes are sleek, adjustable and complete with a set of dumbbells to get your arms in on the action. The team adjusted my bike to the correct height and as I strapped in my feet and as the instructor dimmed the lights and turned on the fan with the computer controlled system, I set myself up for 45 minutes of intense fitness.

Determined to start sculpting the perfect bikini body as the warmer weather sets in (as I’m sure every woman is), I peddled like I’d never peddled before. To my surprise the music was motivating, the instructor was encouraging (not intimidating), and even though I couldn’t do everything (the up-downs hurt a lot!) I had a lot of fun and left ready to attend the same class next week.

If you (like me) are not sure if this is the right type of fitness for you, there is no lock-in contract and the guys over at Psycle Life are offering your first three classes FREE once you sign up. So grab a friend, get onya’ bike and be converted to the Psycle way of life!
