Cruise control: Flywheel is hitting the high seas

Flywheel indoor cycling studios on cruiseships
Your next cruise might look a little more active than this.


In addition to power walking around the Lido deck (with a margarita in your hand) on your next Caribbean cruise, you’ll be able to break a real sweat at Flywheel Sports five new floating studios.

The indoor cycling phenom, which just opened two studios in Los Angeles last month, is now putting its techno-tracking bikes on board a handful of boats.

“Flywheel at Sea” will now be offered on the world’s largest cruise ships–Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, as well as the Celebrity Reflection—torque board, stadium seating, great music, and all.

And two more are coming: the Norwegian Breakaway (May 2013) and Norwegian Getaway (February 2014). Like spa treatments or excursions which cost extra, a 45-minute ride will be $25.

Admittedly, taking a cruise has never been associated with being or getting healthy. Although, now with boutique fitness brands like Flywheel on board (pun absolutely intended), that could really turn the tide. —Melisse Gelula
