Indoor Cycling/Spinning Classes in Zurich?

Hello all,
I will be in Zurich this summer and I am looking for indoor spinning/cycling classes to take. I'm having a hard time finding places that offer classes everyday online. I'm looking for something similar to the studios I currently go to in the states:
https://www.soul-cycle.com/info/soul-classes/
http://www.cycfitness.com

Does anyone know of studios that are just for indoor cycling/spinning? If not, does anyone know of any gyms that offer these types of classes regularly? I found one gym, Indigo, but it only offers the classes 3 days a week. If anyone currently takes or has taken classes like these in Zurich please let me know.

Thank you very much!!!

Hi,
I go here
http://www.fitnesspark.ch/stockerhof
They have courses all days
It's a "bit" expensive because you have to pay the entrance (it's around 35 CHF), but you can buy 10 entries and have a small discount. I usually go
at the weekends 'cause I can also enjoy the spa and the lesson lasts 1h30m.

In the city center I don't know anything else (when I did some sources I found just a club called Luxor but I think it's very pricey)

Re: Indoor Cycling/Spinning Classes in Zurich?

Hi. I'm a member of Luxor, which offers spinning classes most days. Luxor is just off Paradeplatz. I used to be a member of Holmes place, which also offers spinning classes (Every day, I think) and is located on the top floor of the Jelmoli department store on Bahnhofstrasse. Another gym offering this is Silhouette located in Bellevue. I have not been a member here (but have visited), but I know they offer it. Holmes Place is a really upmarket gym, is really nice, but is the costliest. The other two are less salubrious, but cheaper. Luxor also has two squash courts (The only reason I am a member. I have never seen the rest of it's facilities and I have been a member for a year!) if that makes a difference.

Hi Nick-
Thank you for responding and the helpful info! Could I ask you a couple of follow ups about the Luxor, Holmes and Silhouette spin classes? Are the classes similar to one another? I'm looking for something that is fast pace and difficult. In the states we spin for 45 min and use hand weights during high resistance. Do any of these place offer classes like that?

This is an example:

I will be in Zurich for a week and checked out each gym's website but can't find info about short memberships or daily. Do you know if these offer them? Thanks again for your help I really do appreciate it!!

Hi Luca-
Does the entrance fee include spinning classes? And do they offer spin everyday or other classes everyday? I'm hoping to spin everyday. I am having a hard time finding out info on their classes on their website because it doesn't translate every page. Thanks again!!

Yes once you pay the entrance you can do whatever you prefer (gym spa and courses).
Here you find the detail of spinning classes http://www.fitnesspark.ch/stockerhof...n-cycling.html
And if you want more there are also a couple of bycicles in the gym that you can use anytime.

Re: Indoor Cycling/Spinning Classes in Zurich?

Why don't u just call them?

Also switzerland in summer is amazing for all kinds of biking, so you can go cycling outside for free and enjoy the country at the same time as saving money on spinning

Classes are pretty similar. I have never, in Zurich, Sylt or London, found any spin classes that weren't fast pace and difficult, so take that as a given. Classes are generally 45 minutes. I have never experienced hand weights during a class. (How is that even possible? If you have the time, effort and coordination for hand weights, then, in my view, the class is not very good!) I think all gyms offer a daily rate, but it will be expensive! You asked about clipless shoes on offer? Again, I have never seen this, for which I am eternally grateful! Thanks, Luca, I mean, Nick!

No, but you can get yourself a turbo trainer and do it yourself.

One of my friends that moved here from NYC loves Velocity. She also said to keep an eye out for http://www.velobar.ch/ which might also be coming to Zurich. They currently have a location in Lausanne.
