Flywheel Sports, the indoor cycling sensation, which opened on August 10th is now in in full swing offering their unparalleled indoor cycling experience. The single room studio features amphitheater-style seating so every rider is ensured an unimpeded view of the instructor who is dimly spot-lit for a dramatic ambiance. Each one of the 45 bikes digitally displays your progress and fitness data and then stores that data in your online Flywheel account (also where you sign up for classes) which enables you to set and keep track of your goals. There's also flat screens affectionately referred to as the "Torque Board" above the instructor which displays class leaders and performance data during the class.
