Welcome to Scotland's first dedicated indoor cycling and Spinning® studio
Indoor Cycling at its Best - and for Everyone
The LifesCycle Team has created a space where people can Recycle their lives and cycle for Pleasure! Where people can feel relaxed and able to join in, where they will feel good, whatever their age, body shape, level of fitness or circumstances.
LifesCycle – a unique journey
Scotland's only dedicated Spinning® and Indoor Cycling Studio was created in 2009. The team are constantly drawing on their own life experiences and skills and melding them together, to turn that initial dream of taking indoor cycling to a new level, into the unique experience that is LifesCycle.
Partner and fitness enthusiast/sports coach Andy, uses his diverse background in Theatre, Music, Sound Technology and Drama Therapy, seeing the motivational advantages of turning each class at the Edinburgh Studio into literally a piece of theatre.
His classes are designed to have all the elements of a multimedia event, and for participants to use all their senses. Through the use of voice, music, visuals, lighting and the sheer physicality of the instructors who he helps motivate and train, LifesCycle sessions are about high energy exercise and fun. Not just physical exercise, but also an education. Not just hearts pumping, but cool music, exciting images, pumping legs, and an instructor safely guiding you through the lesson.
Many of the instructors are competitive cyclists and athletes in their own right, so bring their own expertise and experience to the mix.
The end result is more than Spinning®. More than just going and doing an exercise class. It’s unique. With all the elements coming together to inspire and motivate.
A keen casual cyclist since childhood, and a long-term exercise and fitness fan, Jeannie, whose main role is managing the business, worked for the Scottish Government and uses the skills she developed in her 25-year career, latterly in supportive, people-based roles and in physical and mental health and wellbeing to develop these areaS further at
LifesCycle. To take the business forward in a community-based direction. For Jeannie, LifesCycle was inspired and made possible by her mum and dad who cycled all their lives. It is not like a gym, and nor should it be – that was never the intention. Her ideal, is a place where people can feel good about themselves, not only through a great workout and the inspiration that comes with it, but also by feeling relaxed and able to feel comfortable and chat with like-minded people in a welcoming environment.
Spinning® at LifesCycle is a unique experience because it is real.

It is all about you, your body and your bike... you are in charge of your resistance at all times, so any ride is suitable for people of all skill levels.

Are you a newbie? (Whether to Spinning®
or just to LifesCycle)
You should start with the newbies class or with a class that advertises an induction at the start. In LifesCycle we believe that first impression is everything – and we want you to come back. Even if you are an experienced cyclist, Spinning® is different and in the newbies sessions we will ensure that your bike is set up correctly and we will also go through the basic moves used in the regular sessions.

Andy and Jeannie and the rest of the team believe LifesCycle members also contribute to the dream, the journey, every time they take part in classes at the Bonnington Bridge Studio. The idea that members hook into the journey and create their own, is what LifesCycle is all about. To feel inspired and motivated to tap into their own groove, their own experience, in a friendly and safe environment.
