YOUR FIRST CLASS
What to Wear
We invite you to remove your shoes upon entering the studio to start the process of unwinding and to help us provide a clean space. For classes, you’ll feel comfortable wearing a moisture-wicking tee shirt or tank top with form-fitting capris or form-fitting shorts that cover the thigh to prevent slipping. Avoid long, loose-fitting pants and 100% cotton clothing.
Nourish and Hydrate
The key to a healthy body is staying hydrated. Drink water before, during, and after your class. For cycle, we recommend eating a simple carbohydrate snack 1 hour before the class to keep your blood sugar up and energy strong.
Account & Waiver
While walk-ins are accepted, we highly encourage clients to make an online reservation as classes tend to fill up quickly. Create a client account and agree to the online liability waiver. Clients under 18 must have their parent or guardian sign the waiver in person. You can create an account on the website or download Mindbody
We encourage you to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the class start time to give yourself some un-rushed time to check-in and get settled. For your first class we provide you with towels, and water, we’ve got you covered.
Always check-in for your class with the front desk. If you reserved a bike in advance, your name would appear on the sign-in sheet. Initial next to your name so that we know you’re here. It’s important to sign-in for every class in which you attend.
We will hold reservations up until 5 minutes before class start time, however all NEW RIDERS are required to be at the studio 10-15 min prior to class. After this time, if there's a waitlist for a full class, your reservation may be "gifted" to a fellow rider who's waiting. To maintain a sacred space, avoid disruption and reduce the likelihood of injury, we cannot always accept late arrivals and will not allow entry 5 minutes after a class begins.
Shoes- For safety and effectiveness, our classes require cycling shoes that provide a more stable ride and allow you to work the correct muscle groups. Shoes are complimentary. If you already have cycling shoes, our pedals are SPD compatible.
For your convenience, we offer a unisex bathroom/ changing room equipped with towels, and other amenities. We do not have showers. We will soon provide hair dryers.
Custom cubbies to keep your personal items secure during the ride. They are easy to use, and shield your personal items.
Bike Setup & Safety
Ameanspinn Studio classes offer a high-intensity cardio workout. Like any new physical endeavor, you may want to consult your doctor first. Before class, make sure to check that all bike adjustments are tight, your cycling shoes are securely clipped into the pedals, and that you test the brake.

REMEMBER: SIGN IN
