Hello Spinbreaker,

Ever wondered what goes into creating the perfect vibe for an Indoor Cycling Live DJ class? Well, get comfy because I’m about to take you behind the scenes of my world as the Spinbreak’s DJ, where every song, mood and genre counts and are carefully chosen to elevate your ride.


Setting the Stage :

Indoor Cycling is a journey, not just a workout. I want the playlist to be your guide, taking you seamlessly through warm-ups, sprints, climbs, and cool-downs. It’s about syncing the beats with the coach movements to make every pedal feel like a dance move. Let’s talk variety. From pop music to the latest electronic hits, and some, some R&B songs, I want the playlist to be as dynamic as your ride. I love throwing in surprises, keeping you guessing about what’s coming next.

Riding the Waves :

Those first few tracks? They’re like the opening scene of a movie. I like to attract the attention of the guests, get them hooked for what comes next, that’s why I like to start with familiar songs, that are catchy to the ear and easy to start pedaling little by little to their rhythm. That is why before any class, the coach and I discuss the playlist, and even though, on the day of the event, the songs and the order are a surprise for everyone, there is a previous agreement to choose the type of songs and speed at the beginning and at the end of the mix.

Keeping the rhythm :

Live mixed classes can be a challenge for anyone, you have to know how to adapt to the changes in rhythm and it is important to always be aware of the movements. However, at Spinbreak, we love challenges and that is why we have decided to make these classes special, for truly special occasions.

Can’t wait to see you in class soon! Being part of these sessions is a blast for me, and I hope you’ll enjoy the experience as much as I do. Let’s make fitness fun and unforgettable—see you in the studio for some good vibes and great workouts!

    • What is your favourite breakfast?

    I’m a big fan of intermittent fasting, so I usually skip breakfast. However if I am extra hungry, I love porridge with honey. My healthy plan is paused on sundays when I go full on family brunch: pancakes, chocolatines, coffee, etc 😜

    • Any tips for staying motivated?

    Motivation is a like a muscle. You can’t expect to lift big weights the first time you try. Go for smaller objectives that you can meet. Then it gets easier the more you do it.

    • What are your favourite training exercises?

    A good Pilates session with Karyn at the studio! Or a good plank if I’m on my own…

    • The best thing to do after a session is…

    Shower! And then enjoy some fun times with family or friends. A nice burger will help in both cases!

    • The sentence that inspires you the most?

    Keep going! 

Spinning Essentials

Spinning Essentials

1.  Spinning Shoes

  Don’t panic! We have lovely Shimano cycling shoes for you to borrow for each class. You can also buy your own lovely pair in our shop- we provide the SPD clips with each pair you buy. Why do we cycle with SPD clips? A couple of great reasons: firstly, being clipped in to the pedal helps you maintain your leg and knee at the perfect angle, so it helps prevent injury, while properly building up the muscle around your joint. And secondly, it helps you think of one less thing while you are drifting off to the beat of the music. Being clipped in allows you to push and pull on each pedal stroke, and it very quickly becomes an automatic movement.

2. Water Bottles

To stay hydrated, we have opted to stay away from plastics. We provide aluminum water bottles, which are ready and waiting for you at the beginning of each class. Our staff make sure they are cleaned and disinfected after each use; and will be filled with fresh water just before the class starts. Staying properly hydrated is an essential part of your indoor cycling experience. It allows your body to replace the sweat it loses during the session, and helps with the detoxification that takes place after your muscles break down during the workout phase.

3. Your Outfit

For an indoor cycling session, you have to feel comfortable. Chose an outfit in which you feel good and not too hot. Try to use sweat-resistant workout clothes, as these are developed to eliminate heat and moisture created by the body during the workout phase. We sell lovely t-shirts, bras and tank tops at the studio- don’t hesitate to come check them out!

4. Towels

Before starting your class, grab a nice fresh towel that is waiting for you by the entrance to the cycling room. If you are staying for a shower afterwards, we also provide larger ones in the changing rooms.

5. Energy Bars

To make the most out of your Spinbreak session, it is really important to have eaten something in order to have energy during your workout. Don’t forget that you can burn an average of 600 calories- so to optimise this burn, you should be prepared before you workout.

We know it is hard to find a good source of protein and carbs before a session. Look no more! In our travels, we discovered an amazing small local producer in Crete, Greece who makes bio, raw, vegan, natural bars made with honey, chocolate, almond, cranberries, peanuts… try the different flavours, we know you’re going to love them!

6. Bring your smile and your good mood

We are here to sweat, to burn calories, to decompress; and we are also here to have a great time together. Our main goal at Spinbreak is to help you unwind, pedal your stress away and have fun with other wonderful Spinbreakers. Come and enjoy the space!
