Spin class is an amazing workout.
And CycleBar is one of my absolute favorites.
But it might not be the ONLY workout you want in your own personal fitness mix.
Maybe you like to get a little strength work, a little yoga, and a little of this and that.
The best way to do it? A ClassPass membership.
That way, you can hop around to as many different studios as your membership allows, and try a bunch of different stuff every month!
But is CycleBar on ClassPass?
Yes. Out of the over 200 open CycleBar locations nationwide, the majority of them participate in ClassPass. Though that’s subject to change based on the preferences of individual franchise owners.
If you want to take 1-2 CycleBar class per month but still have time and budget left for other kinds of workouts, ClassPass is a great choice.
CycleBar ClassPass locations in major cities
I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and there are 3 CycleBar studios on ClassPass near me (Buckhead, Dunwoody, and East Cobb).
In my case, that covers ALL of the studios in my area. There are no CycleBars nearby that don’t participate in ClassPass, which gives you great selection!
There are at least three CycleBar locations in Chicago, including Fulton Market, Oak Park-River Forest, and Evanston.
There’s a ClassPass CycleBar in Culver City for you Los Angeles folks, plus one on Sunset Boulevard.
And there’s at least two participating locations around Boston, including Wellesley and Somerville.
As of this writing, there are about 200 open CycleBar locations in the United States with more on the way.
Most of these, it seems, are included as part of your ClassPass membership.
How does ClassPass work?
It’s pretty simple really.
The first step is to start a free trial.
That way, you can try out the system and get a feel for how you like it risk-free for 30 days.
From there, you choose a package of “credits” to purchase each month:
- 7 credits for $15/month
- 27 credits for $49/month
- 45 credits for $79/month
- 85 credits for $139/month
- 130 credits for $199/month
(As of this writing, there’s no more unlimited option with ClassPass.)
Your credits can then be redeemed for classes at participating studios in you area.
Classes at off-peak hours or less popular studios usually run 2-4 credits each, and it goes up from there.
(Divide your credits per month by 3, and that’ll tell you roughly the high-end of classes you could take each month.)
You can search for classes using the mobile app and book everything using just your phone.
That’s pretty much it!
You can use your ClassPass credits at places like:
- Burn Boot Camp
- CrossFit boxes
- Yoga studios
- Local gyms
- Pure Barre
- And more
How many credits is CycleBar on ClassPass?
In my area of Atlanta, here’s how it works.
CycleBar classes in the suburban locations cost about 6 credits, while classes in the city cost about 8 per class.
This seems to hold true for most places around the country.
Expect to cough up 5-6 credits per CycleBar class at less popular studios, and around 7-8 in more busy, urban areas.
A $79/month ClassPass membership would get you about 5-7 CycleBar classes per month, if that’s the only thing you used your credits for.
That’s a pretty great deal!
Signing up at CycleBar separately (at least in my area) costs about $109 for 8 rides per month.
Of course, if you absolutely love your local CycleBar, the best deal possible will be to get an unlimited membership directly from the studio for about $149 for as much as you can ride each month.
But if you just want to dabble with a class or two per week, and try some other stuff, ClassPass is a far better deal.
Things to know before your first CycleBar class
Here’s what you need to know before hitting up your local CycleBar for a spin class.
- You have to register ahead of time using ClassPass, but it’s always a good idea to pick your bike ahead of time at CycleBar. If it’s your first time, you might not want to be right up front!
- Arrive early. The bikes and special spin shoes can be a little bit tricky, but the instructors will get you set up.
- Wear form-fitting pants. Loose pants will be a huge pain in the butt! But you’ll also sweat a lot, so choose a top that breathes well.
- Be ready for a serious workout! CycleBar will give you an intense upper body challenge using weighted bars, so prepare yourself.

ClassPass ia smart, convenient, and economical way to take a few CycleBar sessions per month.
Most of the CycleBars around the country participate, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a studio or booking a class.
Expect each CycleBar class to run about 5-6 credits (in the burbs or rural areas) and 7-8 in the city, so choose your ClassPass plan accordingly.
It’s really a great deal until you want to take more than 8 CycleBar classes in a single month (then just buy an unlimited package directly from the studio, or buy a big pack of classes).
But if you want to try out CycleBar a few times per month and dabble in yoga, strength, pilates, and more, then ClassPass makes total sense.
Hope this helps, everyone!
