Welcome to Racked's Fitness Week: five days of workout coverage, so that you can start your New Year's resolutions off right.
Clockwise from left: AuraCycle, Blazing Saddles, Cyclelates, SoulCycle, Flywheel, Cycle House.
Rounding out our three days of fitness polls is today's search for LA's Best Indoor Cycling Studio. (FYI, the terms "spin," "spinning," and "spinner" were trademarked by a California company back in 1993, which is why you won't see them uttered here, unless the studio is officially certified.) Call the workout what you may, our city is brimming with stationary bike options fit for adrenaline junkies.
Without further ado, our six candidates: certified "Spinning" facility Blazing Saddles in Sherman Oaks, Hollywood cycle/pilates hybrid Cyclelates, 2012 Hottest Trainer contestant home SoulCycle, and three 2013 Hottest Trainer breeders AuraCycle, Cycle House and Flywheel.
Which studio is best? You have 24 hours to vote. Update: The poll is now closed.
