Preparing for your first boost
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
A t-shirt or fitted tank with cycling shorts/ fitted pants is recommended for a more comfortable ride. Cycling shoes with SPD clips are required. We offer complimentary shoes for your first ride. Cycling shoes are available to rent for $2. You may also purchase your own shoes starting at only $100. New riders are encouraged to arrive early so that the Boost team can show you around and help you properly get set up on the bike.
We are so excited you want to give your life a BOOST and take an indoor cycling class at Boostcycle. All riders are required to sign a waiver in the studio prior to your first ride. All riders who are under 17 years old must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Please print out waiver form from our website and bring it in for your first ride or we will have you fill it out when you arrive.
CHANGING AREAS AND LOCKERS
For your comfort and convenience we provide both women’s and men’s restrooms fully equipped with showers, complimentary towels and toiletries. We provide locks at no charge to keep all your belongings secure. Please ask our staff for assistance and we will be happy to assist.
If you book your ride online prior to class, make sure you verify your arrival so our staff knows you’re ready for your Boost. Unclaimed bikes will be released 4 minutes prior to class, so it’s super important you remember to check in.
First time riders are expected to arrive 15-20 prior to your ride in order to give our staff a few minutes to get you ready on the bike and make adjustments needed. Because of safety reasons, new riders will not be admitted to class if they arrive late. All classes do start on time so please make sure your on your bike before the lights go down!
WHAT SHOULD I EAT BEFORE CLASS?
We suggest you have a light snack 30-40 minutes prior to your Boost ride. This will help you maintain your blood sugar and energy level for the duration of the ride. Check our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for tips from our instructors.
Hydration is the key to an energizing, effective, and successful ride. Make sure you begin drinking water about 2 hours before your ride. Continue drinking during and after the ride. Smartwater is available for sale at the front desk.
Proper alignment on our bike is essential to protecting your knees, shoulders and back. For safety and effectiveness of the ride, it’s important that a trained staff member assist you in setting up your bike.
