LA Places & Spaces || Cycle House
We stressed the importance of looking good and feeling good in our previous lifestyle post and now we want to share one of our favorite places more in depth. Here at DASH we have been in love with Cycle House for a while and a majority of our Los Angeles dolls are regulars here. In recent years we have made it a tradition to host an American Cancer Society event with CH so they have become very near and dear to all of us.
Cycle House has two locations with talks of more to come in the future. Currently one in West Hollywood at the corner of La Cienga and Melrose conveniently located near our DASH location. Additionally, they have another location right on Ocean Ave in Santa Monica.
In 2011, Cycle House opened its door to a location on Melrose before expanding into a larger space in West Hollywood and then Santa Monica. Parents-to-be Lara and Adam Gillman who had the vision to create a fitness experience unlike any other founded Cycle House on the mantra of Strength in the Struggle.
With some of the best instructors in the cycling world, you can expect to see blood, sweat, and tears in any class you take. You will feel empowered, motivated, and you will for sure want to come back for more. Each instructor will have you pushing yourself to the limit and working harder than you ever thought was possible.

Never spun before? No problem, CH loves newcomers and will help you with the basics before beginning your first ride and making sure you are comfortable. Complimentary spin shoes are offered at both locations, they recommend wearing leggings and don’t forget to bring socks.
Stay hydrated, as spin is very tiring, they offer filtered water systems so make sure to bring your own water bottle. Arrive 15 minutes early a member from the team will check you in and get you ready for your ride! We promise you’ll be happy you went!
Another amazing thing about Cycle House is they are all about contributing to a great cause every one ride that is taken at the house means 2 meals donated to communities around the country. Additionally, CH is known to partake in many charity rides including our very own yearly event DASH x Cycle House ride.
So get ready, get set, and sign up for spin! Whether you live in the Los Angeles area or are planning a visit we highly recommend taking a ride at the house after visiting DASH on Melrose.
