Local owners excited to boost Bend’s fitness offerings

CycleBar, an international premium indoor cycling franchise, is set to open a studio in Bend’s Old Mill District later this spring next to lululemon.

Using CycleBar’s proven boutique indoor cycling model, local owners and operators Kirk and Stefanie Nelson, are excited  to create a fun, accessible, high-energy workout for all ages and fitness levels.

“We came to Bend because of the active lifestyle and fitness sensibility of the community,” Stefanie Nelson says. “Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Old Mill District. We’re excited to bring a fitness option that currently doesn’t exist in the area where people can get excited about fitness in a multi-sensory, concert-like environment.”

Using a combination of great instructors and great music, CycleBar is an immersive experience that makes for a one-of-a-kind indoor cycling environment. Guests can choose from a number of membership plans and concierge services that include complimentary towels, lockers and cycling shoes.

Dynamic classes take place in a state-of-the-art “CycleTheater” and are led by CycleStar instructors who guide participants through 50-minute, high octane rides. CycleBar is the largest network of Premium Indoor Cycle Studios in the world, with approximately 300 locations slated to be open by the end of 2018.

The Nelsons live in Bend with their three children. Kirk, a native Oregonian, has a background in executive-level management and company ownership in the recruitment, human resources and corporate profitability spaces. Stefanie boasts extensive experience as a recruiter and staffing expert, working in major cities on both the east and west coasts. Both are looking forward to their new venture in the community they call home.

CycleBar will open spring 2018 and will be located at 655 SW Powerhouse Dr. Suite 150 Bend, Oregon 97702. For more information, visit bend.cyclebar.com or the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CycleBarBend/
