The largest and most modern Spinning® facility in the tri-state region will open its doors December 1 with a special open house and details of its no-membership fee system.

Life Cycle Fitness offers 21 bikes and 10-foot screens where Life Cycle's unique GlobalSpin™ brings views of roads from all over the world into its 1,000 square ft. room.

Modern bikes automatically track heart rate, cadence, speed and distance. Certified instructors teach to music pumping from a technologically advanced sound system, complimented by acoustic panels on the walls and ceiling.

Classes range from 20 to 50 minutes and are available for newbies, Seniors, competitive cyclists and cross training athletes. There is no membership fee - customers pay by the class at a price of $6 or less.

Owner Gene Nacey built his career in the medical field by creating tracking technology for medical facilities across the globe.

Nacey realized early in his 20 plus years as an entrepreneur he needed something to detach from the office. He engages in several physical activities to release stress, ignite creativity and of course, stay physically fit. The demands of any career often lead to eating poorly, neglecting exercise and ignoring the need for down-time. During one of his rides, Nacey experienced his latest Eureka moment.

Combine his love of cycling with his years of business experience to open a state of the art facility where all levels of athlete could participate.

"When I tell someone we are opening a Spinning ® facility, 75 percent of the time they respond with 'Oh, I tried that, it's too intense for me.' Unfortuately, in discovering the tremendous benefits of Spinning ®, we cycling enthusiasts have dropped the rest of the population like Lance drops his competitors on the nearest climb. This is a non-impact, comfortable aerobic workout that is as entertaining as it is healthy. It needs to be shared with all levels of individuals seeking to improve fitness, not just elite athletes."

Life Cycle classes are built upon the Spinning® and Heart Zone Training® principles. Instructors can help you measure, monitor and manage different heart rate levels throughout the workout to ensure you aren't just spinning your wheels during your workout but actually working smarter to achieve the level of fitness you desire.

Life Cycle offers Pilates classes as a compliment to the cycling component of the fitness center.

"Our Pilates room is designed to support our theme of education and growth through group exercise," Nacey said. "The core strengthening that Pilates produces is beneficial for everyone, especially cyclists. We hope to offer alternative classroom workouts as the program evolves."

Life Cycle perks also include a coffee and smoothie bar that offers smoothies made from fresh ingredients, not mixes. A relaxing area is available to sip your smoothie while surfing the Internet using free Wi-Fi. A Pro Shop is on site to purchase cycling gear, and child care is available for a fee of $2 per child. Vacation cycling tours will also be offered in the summer and fall.

The first class is free. The introductory offer is $30 for 2 weeks of unlimited use.

Teams along with police, fire departments and Armed Service Personnel can qualify as families for group discounts. Free Sub Max Heart Rate or Threshold Heart Rate Classes is available for those purchasing unlimited monthly passes (normally a $10 to $25 value).

Per class prices run from $6 to estimates of less than a $1 per class with unlimited packages.

Open House is Dec. 1 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
