Journey Cycling & Fitness & Cookies!!

I teach at a larger gym and love it! I know that the BIG gym environment isn’t for everyone, and even I, on occasion, prefer to go to a smaller studio (Bikram is my favorite). Today I tried out a new studio, Journey Cycling & Fitness (note: I decided to try this gym on my own and am not being compensated in any way).

According to their website: “We understand the world of indoor cycling and group fitness can be intimidating, but at Journey Cycling and Fitness Studio, we strive to make your experience as exceptional as possible while also providing a revolutionary full-body workout.” The studio offers spinning, boot camps, a variety of group fitness classes (including core, boxing, and yoga focused classes). They also offer nutrition counseling and seminars.


The whole studio is very modern, with exposed pipes and clean lines. The front desk (shown above) is very welcoming, with a large class schedule displayed behind the desk. The staff was super friendly and they offer a free class during your first visit.

I peaked into the spinning studio, which is gorgeous:



I needed a good stretch, and took a Mind ‘N’ Body class.


It was absolutely fabulous! My only complaint is that the group fitness area is on the small side. There were five of us taking the class and we almost completely occupied the space!

I would really like to go back and try a spinning class. If you’re in the area, give Journey a go!

On another note, my Tate’s giveaway is open until Friday at noon! All you have to do is leave a comment, linking to (or telling me about), your favorite cookie recipe. I’ve received so many fabulous recipes, I had to share a few:

Autumn’s Monster Cookies

Joelle’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Candice’s White-Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Amy’s Almond Crisps

Sarah’s Triple Chip Coconut Cookies

Noelle’s Chocolate Cherry Kiss Cookies

Jenn’s Crinkles

What are you waiting for? Enter!

I hope that I can get to more cycling classes in the future. My gym offers it, but really early classes like 5:30am. But I do love music and working out, and I always see everyone in there having fun. Have you heard of Soul Cycle? It's the rave in L.A., sort of the new trendy workout happening right now.

Fun! I love spin, but I haven't done it in over a year. Wish there was a good place near me!
