Love, Sweat, and Gears | BFX Studio’s Ride Republic Spin Class

We are the first to admit we can sometimes get lazy and compliant when it comes to working out. This is mostly due to the fact that we sit in-front of a computer for hours on end without much movement, except when it comes to reaching for a snack. We’ve gotten to the level of forcing ourselves up from the couch, desk, park bench, etc just to show our bodies that we’re not petrified objects, so when we get an opportunity to get active, we try to take advantage….because it’s something that is desperately needed. That is why we were ecstatic to receive an invitation to check out the BFX Studio in Chelsea (more locations are coming soon). We loved spinning but hadn’t participated in a few years……today we tested our endurance.

We had a choice between the following classes: BFX Build (Eli Ingram and Amanda Butler), Classic Ride (Josh Taylor), BFX Barre (Michelle Demus and Colin Turek), and Fusion Ride (Juan Hidalgo), but because we haven’t worked out in quite a while, we decided to start with an easier class…..or so we thought. Securing a position and an in-breed Spinner® Blade Ion bike for the Classic Ride with Josh Taylor, we were mentally ready for the high-energy spin class…..physically ready was a different story.

The classicRIDE is spinning as it was meant to be – high-energy, motivational instructor, great music, and a heart-pounding experience. We recommend first-time spinners, and those who haven’t attended spin classes in a while (like we haven’t) begin with this one. For those of you who are more advanced than we are or prefer something more challenging, we present the following:

ultraRIDE – more enhanced than the classicRIDE, ultraRIDE offers extreme physical challenges on the bike with a rotating theme. No fear of stagnation in this 45 min class

epicRIDE – love spinning to specific themes and music? Then the epicRIDE spin classes are for you. Every class has a visually and musically supported theme and can go on for 1-2 hours. Epic indeed!

FUSIONRIDE – if you want to experience a workout both on and off the bike, this two-part spin class is right up your alley. Get ready to spend part of the class riding, and the other part off the bike, in athletic conditioning and functional training. The result is a high-cardio burn that will maximize your agility, stamina, power, and core strength. Fusion offers three ride/training Time option: 30 min/30 min, 45 min/15 min, and 45 min/45 min.

The class was intense and we loved it…..even while thinking we were going to pass out. Our hearts were pounding, our energy was up, and we burned lots of calories. What more could you ask for, except for a refreshing drink, which we enjoyed post workout at the launch festivities which also included personalized mini training sessions, spa treatments courtesy of Mio, Sakara treats, and BFX Studio’s state of the art Fit3D body scan.

BFX Studio has a t-shirt that says pretty hurts, it really does but it hurts so good. We invite anyone who wants to add spinning to their fitness regime to check out BFX Studio, located at 555 Sixth Avenue (between 15th and 16th St) in NYC. We kinda want to work there now.

I like the multicolored hearts.

These are so cute! Remind me of when they did the Cynthia Rowley ones.

The floral print is too cute!

The heart band aids are my favorite.

These are so pretty. I need them all!

Victoria Taft August 25, 2014 at 6:48 pm

I like them all, but if I had to pick one the rose one is the cutest! We are a not plain bandaid sort of family so I'm happy to see more choices becoming available. Current bandaids are Phineas and Ferb bandaids for those interested.

I am really loving the pink camo design, super cute!

The camo design is super cute!

Karen Gray August 25, 2014 at 2:49 am

I like the ones with the hearts on them. I think my son would probably like the one with the letters to best. I feel like I never knew I needed designer Band-aids, but now that I've seen them, I totally need them.

I really like the roses-just keep these away from my grandchildren! They would plaster these cute Band-aids all over themselves!

My favorite design for the Isaac Mizrahi Band-Aids are the watercolors. These designs are so cute.
