AuraCycle isn't just an indoor cycling studio—it's an experience. Since opening its doors back in April, the West 3rd workout go-to has quickly garnered buzz for its party-inspired classes filled with trippy, sound-activated light shows, booming playlists and celeb riders like Whitney Port.
Founded by former Italian pro athlete Maurizio Pelone and former investment banker Jose Palau, the 45-minute full-body ride boasts a 500 to 800-calorie burn that includes a yoga-style warm-up and cool-down. Speaking of yogis, Pelone and Palau tell us that they're planning to open their first AuraYoga studio in WeHo's Sunset Plaza this summer, which we're hoping is just as Space Mountain-y.
Ready to ride? Nab a single class ($15) or unlimited package ($285/month) here. Don't forget to grab one of their eucalyptus cold towels on your way out, too, because those things are addictive.
