If you haven't been to Mosaic District in a while, you have no idea what you are missing! Not only is Mosaic filled with shops & restaurants, it has become a mecca for fitness enthusiasts with Core Power, Spark, Solid Core, Orange Theory and Zengo cycle to name a few. As a former spin instructor, I love to take cycle classes. Today I checked out Zengo Cycle to check out how it measured up to other boutique cycle studios.
Zengo Cycle was immaculately clean with locker rooms equipped with towels. The Schwinn bikes are new and in great condition. The 50 min high intensity, full body workout included upper body weight exercises with light weights. All workouts include a "zen"song where the instructor is quiet, the lights are dimmed and it's all you and your bike. It's a time to focus on your ride and "grind it out" what ever that means to you. I loved this idea!
Jason, my instructor, was high energy and motivating throughout with a killer playlist that kept me focused on my workout and dripping with sweat. He was helpful with bike set up and knowledgeable about form.
Today's workout was exactly what I would look for in a cycle class. I'd definitley go back for more. The first class is free-check it out in Bethesda, Mosaic, Ketlands and DC.
Stay tuned for more fitness reviews from Northern Virginia.
