"I've been spinning for a few years now, and I have never found a group of more motivating, inspiring and encouraging people than at Stax.
I found this amazing studio through one of the instructors. She posted on Instagram she was teaching at this new studio, and I thought I would check it out. From the first class, I was hooked. Now I come every single week.
It's not only good for my body, but it's been good for my mind, too. When you are surrounded by positive and loving people, you want to spread it around. And I think that's the power of this studio. It's about friendship. It's about saying your name when you walk through the door. It's about the high-fives and hugs. It's about the smiles. The hard work. The celebration.
Why do I choose Stax? Unity. Positivity. Community."

"What do I love about Stax? What don't I love! Everyone at Stax wants to see you do well and achieve your goals, and are so welcoming! The facility Is great and the other riders are wonderful. The Britney challenge was an amazing business plan that I admire. I'm so competitive that I could not say no! Lastly I would say your rates are affordable and is much appreciated!
...I am in love with doing dirty doubles! In fact I find back to back classes hardcore and I'm more able to complete both without wanting to die! Endurance has gotten better if that was even possible. I went up to 5 lb weights and find 3 lb's way too easy. There is some serious definition in my bicep that I'm so proud of! Mentally I know I can always handle more resistance and to keep pushing no matter how much it hurts!
Love you guys! Thanks for making being fit so fun!"
"My background is sprinting, football and fitness modelling/bodybuilding. Stax was under construction inside the gym that regularly trained at, and I saw the development of the studio from day 1 and onward! From the styling of the actual studio (very impressive!), to the front desk, apparel/swag, amenities and of course the amazing Stax crew, it caught my attention to say the least! I tried my first class and I loved it. The overall experience with the lights, music and choreography made the class go by so fast, and I had a blast.
From that point on, I’ve been hooked. I have done my fair share of high intensity training, sprinting, boot camps and so on. Nothing has compared to the amount of calories I burn in 45-50 min of spinning at Stax. I average 25-30 kilometers in distance traveled and 800-950 calories burned. If you’ve had a bad day before class, you forget about it while you’re in there and walk out in a great mood!"

Stepping into a spin class can be like stepping into a new world. (We believe it’s a magical world with the most badass unicorns walking around.) Between figuring out how the heck you clip your shoes on the bike pedals and making sure you are on beat, it feel overwhelming....
We love summer so much, we decided to throw a little challenge!
On May 27th, we were honoured to spin with 5 other studios in the city, and over 200 people at 4pm to contribute to a total $20,000 raised for the TKW Foundation. It meant so much to have Tessa Khon (Toni's sister) and Jay Skelly (close family friend to the Khon family) ride with us in the room to celebrate such an amazing woman.
Welcome to your very first spin class! Walking in to your first spin class can be hella scary. Maybe you signed up for a birthday spin ride (we do those, FYI!). Maybe a friend convinced you to come. Maybe you’re looking for a way to jazz up your workout routine. At Stax, we ride as a team - a community. We feed off of our collective energy and power through together. We work hard, but we have A LOT of fun. Seriously, check out our Instagram. We want to make your first spin experience the best it can be. Here are five tips to take you from beginner to pro in no time.
When it comes to morning motivation, our girl @mandimnewman just gets it! Her latest post has us rethinking our weekly routine already. Now, if only we could ditch the wine before 7pm on weeknights...
I’ve also done some spin in Atlanta that had as much dancing/twerking off the bike as it did on. (I’m pretty sure most clients in that class spun on poles as well as bikes but, hey, I wasn’t judging. Gotta pay for college somehow!)...
I’ve been living my life looking like a 10 at 2am (cause well, beer goggles) and a 2 at 10am. But now I’m a confident soft 6, 24/7, 365! What more could a girl want?
So the thing about spin is – at least for me – when you find an instructor you like, you follow them around. I’ve been following a couple of my favorite instructors around the city from studio to studio, and I stumbled upon Stax Cycle Club. This little spin shop has been open for a few months now, and I wanted to share a little bit more of their story....
Happy last day of January! Are you still on track with your New Years resolutions? I love that there are always new fitness trends popping up to help keep things interesting. And yeah, trying any new workout can be intimidating but nothing bad ever came from going out of your comfort zone and getting a great sweat. I need a lot of variety in my workout but recently I have fallen back in love with spin classes and find myself there about twice a week!
Kick your cardio into high-gear with two of Inglewood's hottest studios! We're so excited to be introducing a monthly pass in collaboration with our friends over at The Sweat Science to provide you with the perfect balance of strength and cardio workouts each month.
Bring your friends & fam down for some holiday cheer! We'll be serving up eats (provided by Roosevelt), drinks (provided by Mill Street & Juice Because) studio tours & exclusive holiday offers!
Additionally, this marks the end of our "Viva Las Britney" challenge, where we challenged our riders to ride 400km's in just 45 days for a chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas to see Britney Spears in January! Draw will be at 1:30pm Sharp!
This event is open to all Stax staff, riders & supporters!
WHEN: December 17th, 1-3PM
We can't wait to take you (and your bestie of course) for a wild weekend of fun in Las Vegas to see Brittney Spears LIVE in January!

Saturday morning...I didn't anticipate being this hungover when we signed up for this spin class. So now its strategy time. I may have done this once or twice before so not to brag but I’m kinda of hungover spin pro! Here’s what you need to do:
