WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY FIRST CLASS?
You’ll want to arrive about 15 minutes before class time, hydrated and ready to sweat! For cycling classes, you are in control of how much resistance you ride with and will get stronger with every class you take. For performance training classes, you will be able to connect with your coach and start at an appropriate level. All of our classes are beginner accessible and we are a judgement-free zone.
HOW DO I GET MY FIRST CLASS FREE?
It’s easy, you just sign up for an account! The first class is automatically added to your account and you can sign up for any class on the schedule. While the class is added for all customers, the first class free is only offered to local (Charlottesville, Albemarle and surrounding counties) residents and UVA students (undergraduate and graduate). Make sure to bring a valid photo ID or other proof of residency if you do not use a virginia.edu email address. Note: Each class is limited to 5 new class participants, so if you’re unable to book a given class, please choose another class on the schedule. We do this to make sure we can devote enough time such that each new client is set up fully and safely.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
You can park anywhere in the Barracks Road Shopping Center parking lot (including the lot adjacent to Harris Teeter/OTF) or on Arlington Blvd. in front of the studio.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear comfortable clothes designed for exercise. For cycling, you will moving off and on the bike seat, so skip baggy bottoms. Fitted biking shorts or leggings are perfect. For train classes, any athletic attire is appropriate as well as athletic shoes.
DO I NEED SPECIAL SHOES?
On the cycle side, to provide a safer and more effective workout, we use specialized cycling shoes that clip in to the bike at Zoom. Shoes are free with your first class, and $2 cash ($2.75 account charge) for rental thereafter. For those bringing your own shoes, our bikes are compatible with SPD and Look Delta cleats. Finally, we also offer Giro and Tiem cycle shoes for sale, and if we don’t have your size in stock, shoe rental is free until they arrive. For the train side, regular athletic sneakers are appropriate for class.
