WHAT CLASS IS RIGHT FOR ME?
ALL OF OUR CLASSES ARE THE RIGHT FIT.
Most of our cycling, rowing and TRX classes are for all fitness levels and low impact, with options to adjust to your individual workout intensity. In our cycling classes, you control the bike's resistance to create the perfect challenge. Need a little more or a little less? Simply turn your resistance knob to the right or left. In our crew classes, the resistance comes from the pressure you apply to every stroke. Our TRX classes allow you to adjust the amount of body weight applied to the movement by standing closer or further away from the anchor point. Our fitness programs allow you to take class at your own speed. Find out more about all of our classes
Our "Team Crew" and "TRX + Rip" classes are not recommended for new clients. We offer and TRX + Rip Intro classes (see schedule here) and encourage clients to take 3+ SPIRE Crew classes before jumping into a Team Crew Class for the best experience.
aRRIVE 15-20 MINUTES EARLY
This assures that there is enough time to get you signed in, show you around the studio, and get your rower or bike set up properly! We do require that all new clients arrive 5-minutes before class begins to participate.
We have lockers in the studio for your personal belongings while you are in class and an area for coats and boots. Please bring your own lock if you'd like you items locked up.

Advice from the SPIRE Squad
Checkout tips from our current clients on trying out your first class!
Just try it! Let someone know at the front desk that this is your first class...they're super helpful. Go in with an open mind and know that you're going to get a good workout. There's plenty of class variation, so there's a workout and pace for everyone. - Kristina S.
Do it! Come on in and do what you can – don’t feel like anything is beyond you. We all start somewhere and we are all works-in-progress. Walk in the door and be proud of yourself for showing up. Positive energy permeates the studio, and you’ll have fun, challenge yourself, and be surprised by what you can do. - Robin E.
Don’t just sign up for one class, go for the whole month special, try the different workouts, make it part of your routine and you won’t look back. - Will D.
Don’t be intimidated! The instructors are really good at making you feel comfortable. In every class you can make it your own workout and choose how much you want to push yourself. It’s always challenging, but manageable. - Meg P.
I think just to keep going, because you’ll just continuously surprise yourself, and fall in love with the community and the process. - Hannah J.
The hardest part is showing up. So if you just get there you're going to LOVE IT! - Christina E.
Just pick a class and go! I have a running joke with friends who visit me in MKE. They always ask, “You’re going to make me go to a spin class when I visit, aren’t you?” (YES.) So just do it! Even my Mom came and loved it.
When people ask me which class to take, I say, “Just pick one and go. Then pick another one and go.” You don’t need to research or think about it, just do it. When people tell me, “I need to get fit before coming to class,” I tell them that’s ridiculous. It’s like saying you need to get clean before taking a shower. You get fit by going and making the effort. No one is judging you. No one cares what you’re wearing or if you’re new to spin (or crew or TRX). Just show up and get your mind out of the way. It’s not mind over matter: it’s getting your mind out of your way. Don’t complicate it. - Andrea F.
