This past weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to a sneak peak of the new Core Cycle Studios premier fitness studio in Timonium, MD. As you know, I love supporting fabulous local businesses. I enjoyed my experience at the complimentary preview so I really want to help spread the word.
The family-owned and operated studio is tucked away on the second level of a shopping center right on York Road in Timonium Crossing. Once you step inside the studio you realize you found a slice of fitness heaven in Baltimore County.
Despite being a city gal, it's nice to have a new option that is not too hard to pop by after or before school right off I-83. The studio offers all the nice amenities you could want like complimentary towels, lockers, and private bathrooms and showers. The 2250-square foot studio has a beautiful spin room with awesome brand new spin bikes, lighting, and speaker system.
After trying some juice samples from Pure Raw Juice, looking at the lovely Devon Maryn gear (resisting the urge to buy), and getting a little braid in my hair from Haute Blow Dry Bar, it was time to get a little sweaty. I took a 25 minute preview spin class when I was there and left super sweaty and energized. It had been a while since I've spun so my bum was also a little bit sore!
Besides spin classes, Core Cycle also offers yoga and barre classes as well as some Beachfit Insanity classes. I also tried out 20 minute previews of Insanity and yoga in Core Cycle's other studio room. I loved how this room was bright and filled with lots of natural light from the windows.
The vinyasa yoga flow was lovely-I love all the yoga I can get lately. I loved all of the little touches in the studio like the quotes on the wall (because I'm #mantraobsessed), oil diffusers, statues, and succulents. The attention to all the details is one of my favorite things about the studio.
Core Cycle opened this past Monday. On their grand opening day, all proceeds benefited the One Love Foundation, a foundation created in 2010 to honor a Baltimorean woman who was a victim of dating violence. I thought this was such a wonderful idea!
. Core Cycle Studios is a beautiful space with a boutique city studio feel right in the county. I can't wait to stop by for a class. Check out Core Cycle Studios on Facebook or their website for details about their classes.
