Kitchissippi residents have a new place to get fit, just in time for spring: a spinning studio called Wheelhouse Cycle.

Although this fitness trend isn’t new, Wheelhouse has put their own spin on the idea of stationary cycling. Wheelhouse instructors crank up the entertainment and motivation factor by incorporating music into each session in a major way.

“We turn the music up and the lights down,” laughs co-owner Heather Andrews.

It’s a healthy meeting of beats-per-minute and the tension dial, as participants pedal their way to good health. But these classes aren’t exclusive to elite athletes. Andrews and co-owner Nadine Hogan have worked hard to make the studio a welcoming environment for all.

“We wanted to build a beautiful space for people, and to love the space we’re in,” says Andrews. And they’re happy to be in the neighbourhood. Opening up a storefront in an active community was a top priority.

“We love this area,” says Andrews. “We knew we wanted to be in an area where people would be out walking, and where the businesses supported one another.”

“We’ve had great support from the community,” says Andrews. “We couldn’t be happier with our opening week.”
