Don't take a lifestyle vacation

A lifestyle you don't need

to take a vacation from

At StarCycle, we are on a mission to create a happier, healthier world one sweaty class at a time. And that is why we are curating a class of highly motivated, successful business owners to join our franchising squad to spread our message. We hear it over and over again from our owners and our clients that our class has changed their lives—and it can change yours too!

What is StarCycle?

We are network of indoor cycling studios committed to offering a killer class and empowering experience at all of our locations. Our classes work the whole body with proven techniques that bring real results. But we are really so much more than a kick-your-ass class.

We believe in fostering supportive communities in each location, and that is why we decided to franchise, so that each studio owner could be on the ground in real time—seeing how much of an impact our product has on them and their clients.

On top of this, we fiercely believe in coming as you are. Here everybody and every body is welcome. We welcome everyone from athletes to stay at home mom’s to young professionals and grandparents.

  • No Technology

    We don't believe in stats or leaderboards — it's just you and the bike, getting it done.

  • Badassery

    Our workout will kick your ass in all the right ways, leaving you feeling stronger and shining brighter.

  • Inclusive

    This is a place where everybody — and every body — is welcome.

  • Childcare

    Our StarKids Play Lounge gives kids a safe, fun place to play while you ride.

  • The Real Deal

    We embrace true balance and a lifestyle that's both healthy and sustainable.

  • Ride for Yourself

    Our riders can drop off their mental baggage at the door the minute they walk into the studio.

Are you ready to change peoples lives? Even yours!

Just listen to Eryn Washington gush about how much she loves co-owning and running StarCycle Felida and how she turned her passion into her career.

Eryn Washington

“I left corporate america and opened a StarCycle studio because I wanted a better lifestyle — and I am so happy I did! But what surprised me was how much of an impact I’ve made to my community. We hear almost daily how StarCycle has changed peoples lives, and not just because of the weightloss, but more because of the mental break (no technology) and confidence that comes from our class. That deeper ‘why’ has blown me away and allowed me to truly take my passion and turn it into a successful career.”
Eryn Washington, StarCycle Felida Co-Owner
