Don’t miss this outdoor spin class pop-up—starting Thursday!

KiwiSweat Inaugural


KiwiSweat is taking all the things we love about spinning—outside!

For three days only this week, an amazing outdoor terrace with East River and Brooklyn views becomes the city’s coolest spin studio, where your amenities will include vitamin D, along with an amazing sound system, inspiring instructors, and sweat-drenched, calorie-blasting results.

KiwiSweat spin class

Starting Thursday, the innovative fitness pop-up, is teaming up with Bike New York to host 15 wind-in-your-hair spin classes on the brand-new Pier 36 outdoor terrace, with aforementioned mind-blowing river views. (We predict this will be the summer location for many more inspiring workouts and/or athletic gear commercials!)

Wanna nab a bike? KiwiSweat’s tricked-out terrace holds 30 of them for spin addicts and newbies alike. The roster of rock-your-world instructors includes the super-motivating talents of Lacey Stone and Clif Spady (out-of-towners coming to NYC just for this!) plus Reign Hudson, Timothy Bruns, and Pedal NYC’s Mr. Ray and Heidi Jones. Classes are filling up fast!

And if you think you’ve tried every supped-up spin bike in town, you probably haven’t tried these, provided by Pedal NYC. The Livestrong bikes have digital controls that display your cadence, distance, and heart rate (if you’re wearing your strap)—and an extra smooth ride.

So which classes are you and your workout buddies booking? Check the schedule here. And book now!
