RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – When JoyRide opens on Saturday, it will be the first dedicated indoor spinning boutique in Ridgefield, says its owners.
Corey Londoner and Amy Pal, two local women who love spinning, will open the studio at 62 Danbury Road as the third JoyRide Cycling Studio in Fairfield County.
"When I first discovered JoyRide in Westport, I was struck by how similar it is to the quality I had come to expect when I first fell in love with spin 10 years ago in Manhattan,” said Londoner. “There’s nothing quite like it in Ridgefield. Our aim is to breathe some excitement into the everyday workout.”
Spinning has been described as “high-energy, calorieburning, full-body workouts” that are lead by instructors who have been trained in the JoyRide Method, started in by three women in Westport.
“Corey and I started talking about it in July and by October, we had our lease and a signed licensing agreement with JoyRide in Westport. It has taken about three months from signing to get the studio open. It has been a whirlwind, but we really wanted to open in the dead of winter when people can't cycle outdoors and in January for when people are thinking about resolutions,” Pal said.
On top of the workouts, Pal and Londoner are working with surrounding business owners to support local stores.
“We are lucky to have joined forces with our next door neighbors, Parma Market and Bakery, for our noon-time class ‘Cycle Lunch’,” said Pal. Customers can choose a salad or wrap before class and it will be waiting for them afterward to help customers save time during their busy lunch hours.
A grand opening event, which will include classes and snacks, willl take place Saturday, Jan. 25. Pal and Londoner are also offering a 20 percent discount on the purchase of class packs during the event.
