We all know that exercise does a body good, but what about the greater good?
At Cycle House, a new West Hollywood spin studio, charity begins at the gym. For every class you take, the studio donates two meals to feed the needy through a partnership with nonprofit Feeding America.
Track donations on the company’s website, which also allows you to book classes, reserve a bike, and (coming soon) download instructor playlists. During the 45-minute classes, instructors (including local guru Nichelle Hines) adhere to a high-impact regimen that incorporates weights and stretching.
Feel even better about going to the gym with the studio’s alkaline water filtration system, salvaged-wood locker room furniture, and shady patio with free fruit and eucalyptus towels.
Your reward? Knowing that your workout benefited more than just your glutes.
Cycle House, 624 North La Cienega Boulevard, at North Croft Avenue, West Hollywood (310-358-0888 or cyclehousela.com), $26 per class. Email email@example.com by October 18 to get your first class free.
