Meet Rachael – January 2019 Rider of the Month

Hector: “I chose Rachael as a Rider of the Month because she, like many before her, have become staples to the BESPOKE community. Rachael is one of those members you just instantly remembered and got to know; you couldn’t miss her hot pink hair and just awesome vibe. She is usually always there in the mornings riding front row, doing back to back classes with the usual Starbucks run in between! Ha. She’s someone like I’m sure many others are that have made fitness and spinning a lifestyle and will continue to for years to come. :)”

When was your first ride?
February 2017

How many rides have You taken in total to date?

What made you search for an indoor cycling studio?
Honestly…I went overboard eating on a trip and needed to feel less bloated. Heard spinning was the way to go!

How did you hear about BESPOKE?
A friend suggested it actually. It was too hot to go hiking, so she brought me to BESPOKE instead.

Tell us of a specific accomplishment you’ve had with your active lifestyle.
I joined a weight loss challenge and through consistency in taking BESPOKE classes, I lost over 20 pounds.

How consistent are you with riding on a weekly basis?
6-10 rides a week. If I can, I double up. Everyone should try it at some point. Seems intimidating, and sometimes a bit crazy,  but the second class almost always feels like it goes by faster! Body is already warm and loose and ready for the beating. Ha!

What would you tell new riders?
Don’t get discouraged. It does take about 4-5 rides to get used to spinning. Also, it doesn’t get easier, but you get better, and it does feel rewarding when you can start keeping up to the beat of the music!


Meet Maya – December 2018 Rider of the Month

Maya was nominated by studio General Manager Maritzabell. A corporate extraordinaire by day and spin queen by night.

Follow her journey below and stop by to say hi to her on weekends! Weekdays, she is right next to YOU,  tapping it back and adding resistance on the front row. Join her, join us & share your success! “


When did you start riding?

I took my first cycling class in August 2016. My first class at Bespoke was in February 2017.


What made you search for an indoor cycling studio?

I used to be a runner when I was younger and I hurt my knees. I was bored with the same workouts and always working out on my own, so I tried indoor cycling for the first time with the hope of finding an intense but low-impact workout. I wanted to mix up the stale routine I had at that time. The competition of a class and the motivation of an instructor make cycling the perfect fitness destination for me.


Do you know how many rides you’ve taken?

I am somewhere around 100-120!  I try to take class three or four times a week.


How did you hear about BESPOKE?

I used to live a block over from Bespoke and I walked by the studio after leaving Target. I was excited to try a studio so close to my home!


Had you even spun before BESPOKE before joining? 

Yes, I spun before joining BESPOKE. However, I really liked the instructors I had at Bespoke. I believed they were the best and most challenging in February 2017 and I believe that today.


Who is your fitness role model, and why?

I know I am wiggling out of this question with this answer, but I truly view all of our instructors as role models. I am so impressed by the ability to lead a class of cyclists while really working hard on the bike yourself. I feel that I learn different approaches and pick up bits of knowledge that make me a better rider with each class. I know several of our instructors well, and they each have unique challenges in their lives that make their energy, dedication, and stamina admirable to me.


What is your favorite music to cycle too?

I enjoy a really wide range of music, but on the bike, I am all about a great beat! I am a big hip hop fan, but I also enjoy more dance/EDM mixes. Thanks to Hector, I really like cycling to Latin songs as well.


Tell us of a specific accomplishment you’ve had with your active lifestyle.

I specifically love the confidence I have gained from cycling. I feel comfortable wearing whatever I want to wear, and I never worry about not being able to fit any of my clothes. I used to be very self-conscious, but it is so great to be comfortable in a swimsuit any time in LA!


What keeps you motivated lately?

I truly have a great time in class, so most of the time just the idea of going to class is enough to keep me motivated. I am also a person who focuses on an event or occasion and I plan what I am going to wear, how I want to look, etc. My birthday is coming up at the end of January, so I will definitely be focused on exercising and eating well before then.


What changes have you made that are working for you?

I started a new medication in June that interacts with alcohol, so I haven’t had any since then! That has made a big change in my lifestyle, mood, energy, and overall well-being. I also cut back to one serving of caffeine a day. Both of these changes have helped me sleep better and then have more energy for cycling (and life in general).


Any other breakthroughs you’ve had that you want to share?

I had two major breakthroughs on the bike. The first one was the first time I made it through a whole class without missing any choreography and staying on beat. The second was making it through a class and having a great time. There’s another wall you cross where it just becomes much more fun and a lot more like dancing rather than hard work.


How consistent are you with riding on a weekly basis?

I strive for four classes a week, but realistically I attend three. I do skip a week here and there, for illness or travel. I recently started adding a mix of weights, yoga, and barre to the days I don’t cycle.


On a scale of 1 – 10 how healthy do you feel incorporating cycling into your lifestyle?

10 being the healthiest possible, I would give the addition of cycling to my lifestyle a true 10. There is not much better than the healthy feeling after a class – the feeling of giving it your all and leaving the room to take on whatever comes my way. The most challenging part of the day has been conquered and anything else is easy!


What would you tell new riders?

Cycling just keeps getting better! It is really challenging when you begin, and your first several classes will be very difficult. You will most likely experience soreness in muscles you did not know you had. However, it gets better! You will slowly master the choreography, and catch the faster beats on the bike. The best feeling is breaking through your old limits and accomplishing more on the bike than you did in your last class.


What has been your most memorable experience with BESPOKE?

The most memorable part of Bespoke is the community we have at the studio. I feel that we are one of the most open and welcoming studios. I know fellow riders from all walks of life, all ages, and all activity levels. I love that we can all come together in one room and cycle despite any differences we might have. I am so grateful for the friends I have made and the kindness, support, and encouragement of everyone at Bespoke.



How much weight did you lose from day one?

I am down 15lbs since I started the trade for service program in April!


How long did it take to see major changes? 

I saw improvement in my first month, from April to May. I was moderately active at the time, so I definitely was not starting from scratch. I was able to burn a lot of the fat I wanted to lose fairly quickly!


Lose any inches from your waist?

Absolutely! Clothes that were almost too tight to wear are loose now, I have lost a size or two depending on brand.

(I didn’t take initial measurements so I can’t give a number here)


Where there any obstacles or challenges you faced in losing weight?

Yes, I have a demanding day job so I really had to prioritize working out. It is not always easy to commit to a schedule for working out so I had block out time for cycling. It is always difficult to eat healthy when you are busy, so I had to think about what I was eating and how each food made me feel. By making these two changes, I saw a lot of improvement.



Meet Sam – October 2018 Rider of the Month

Sam Spencer was nominated by Instructor Erica because of his spirit, drive, and consistency as a rider at BESPOKE!

Erica: “I selected Sam because of his spirit, drive, and consistency as a rider here at BESPOKE! When he first started riding here, he told me that BESPOKE instantly made him feel included, which wasn’t always his experience at other indoor cycling studios. His feeling of inclusion is extremely important to me because my goal as an instructor is for everyone to feel accepted in and out of class! Here are five questions that give an idea of his accomplishments these last six months.”

  • What made you search for an indoor cycling studio?

In March, my annual physical didn’t go well. I have done a dozen marathons and have always been active and athletic, but injury and just plain laziness were catching up with me at age 56. My weight and lab results led my doctor to recommend going on medications to mitigate my risk of future problems, but I suggested he give me a few weeks to attack the situation with modifications to my diet and exercise regimen, among them replacing all my ‘days off’ with spin classes at Bespoke. I bought an introductory pass and dove in.

  • How long did it take you to see major changes?

Ten weeks later, I had dropped 25 pounds, normalized my blood pressure and blood sugar, and shaved 70 points off my cholesterol. Even better, as I write this in October, I have kept the weight off – I’m down 30 pounds now – and the changes I made are now entrenched as habits. I turn 57 this month, and I have the weight and physique I had at 25.

  • What was the most important part of your transformation?

Becoming a BESPOKE regular was the most important part of my transformation. And the 100 classes I’ve taken have come with the added bonus of becoming a part of a community, not just with other riders but with the fantastic instructors and staff, who are unfailingly professional, helpful, and fun. I look forward to seeing them with every ride, and that’s an important part of what keeps me going. A huge thank you to everyone at BESPOKE for their help in making this one of the best years of my life.

  • What is your favorite music to cycle to?

My own musical taste is out of the mainstream I’m rarely familiar with what’s being played in class, but it’s okay! I leave those choices to the instructors, and part of their skill is making the music work for the kind of workout they want to lead that day, and they’re all great at it. So my part is just to lock in on the beat and find the right resistance to make staying on that beat a challenge.

  • What advice would you give a newer rider who may feel afraid to take the leap you took?

I had done some spinning prior to 2018, but for the true beginner, I’d say either a community ride or an intro package is an easy way of seeing how spinning works for you. From what I observe when there are new people in the room, the staff and instructors always take special care to help take the stress out of those first few classes.

Meet Scott – September 2018 Rider of the Month

  1. How did you hear about BESPOKE?

I was part of a weight loss challenge in my office. We paired up in teams of 2 for the contest. My partner suggested we try to spin at BESPOKE as part of our winning strategy.

            2. Had you ever spun before BESPOKE before joining?
I had never taken a spin class before. It was never on my radar and I probably never would have tried it had it not been for the office weight loss challenge.
           3. Who is your fitness role model, and why?
I have been taking 5-10 classes at BESPOKE every week for about a year and a half now. My fitness role models are the students I ride with. I have seen positive physical changes with some of them and it keeps me coming back. The instructors and staff keep me engaged and give positive reinforcement every time I ride.
          4. Tell us of a specific accomplishment you’ve had with your active lifestyle.
I am in the best shape of my life right now. I lost 20 pounds in the first 6 months I started riding. I joined a gym near my apartment this year and have been consistent with  BESPOKE and the gym.
          5. What keeps you motivated lately?
Looking good at pool parties and the beach this summer was a big motivator. As a recently single guy in LA, it doesn’t hurt to look good and be in shape.
          6. What changes have you made that are working for you?
I pack a healthy lunch during the week for work. I used to go out to lunch every day with my team. This was costly and I didn’t make the most healthy choices when ordering. Fixing your diet is part of getting healthy. I have also reduced my drinking during the week. Spin class with a hangover sucks!! LOL
           7. Any other breakthroughs you’ve had that you want to share?
I didn’t have a consistent fitness routine or diet prior to joining BESPOKE. I didn’t think I had time to squeeze fitness into my busy schedule. WRONG! We all can find an hour or two every day for self-care.
           8. Where there any obstacles or challenges you faced in losing weight?
Too many to mention. The big ones would be talking myself out of taking a class or not going to the gym. I can also get easily talked into leaving my lunch in the refrigerator at work and going to lunch with my team. They almost shame me into going out to lunch. I think they are just jealous of the progress I have made… LOL
           9. What would you tell new riders?
Commit to at least one month at BESPOKE. The first week or two can seem really hard keeping up with the constant peddling and choreography. You will improve quickly and get all the moves down. The results will follow.
          10. What has been your most memorable experience with BESPOKE?
The first time I took a double class was a breakthrough for me. I had seen dramatic physical changes that I was not able to achieve at the gym on my own. I have made great friends as well. I now get text messages from students asking if I signed up for class the next day. I love that!! BESPOKE is my fitness family and I am grateful for all the support and encouragement I receive from the riders, instructors, and staff.
#theBESPOKEeffect with Scott Siegfreid
Riding Since: May 2017 | Number of Rides: 297Scott initially heard about BESPOKE from a co-worker that was doing a weightless challenge with him. He had never taken a spin class before had it not been for his office weight loss challenge. He would tell new riders: “Commit to at least tone month at BESPOKE. The first week or two can seem really hard keeping up with the constant peddling and choreography. You will improve quickly and get all the moves down. The results will follow!”

Quick cycling tips that will take you from beginner to expert

The necessity for cycling is you, the bike and the helmet. Before taking your bike out, you should make sure it is comfortable, safe, and ready to cycle. Riding a bike requires that you know how to pedal, steer and stop. You also need to be reacquainted with the fundamentals of controlling your momentum and always follows the rules of the road. BESPOKE Cycling Studio in Los Angeles California  is a joyous and wonderful activity, and here are essential tips to help you move from a beginner to an expert.

Cycling Helmet

Get a comfortable saddle

cycling sadleThe right saddle makes all the difference when cycling, and a thick padding might not be comfortable. While it can be tricky to find the right one for you, it is possible. You need to find a local shop that can help you get sized up. However, exercise patience because you might need to sample more than one saddle to find the right one for you.

Learn how to use your gears. When climbing hills, shift into the right gear that will not put undue stress on your knees. Also, desist from pedaling in high gear for long periods, because this adds strain on your knees.


Stay safe

Group Cycling ClassPerhaps this is one of the most important in Cycling tips for beginners. You do not want to end in the statistics of cycling deaths or injuries. Wearing a helmet will go a long way to protecting your head. Many states also demand that cyclists should always wear a helmet, but make a habit of wearing one even if the law does not require it. Secondly, it is extremely dangerous to ride on headphones. They might prevent you to hear an incoming emergency vehicle behind you or on the side. If you must have music, then fix a small speaker to your jersey and maintain a low volume. You should also look in front far enough to see what is ahead of you so that you can react to any incoming obstacles. Things like storms can be dangerous for bike tires. Additionally, know the traffic rules and obey them. Closely observe other motorists in front of you to predict their next action.


Get comfortable

Change your position while riding by moving your hands around the bars, and your rear end on the saddle. This will keep your arms and rear from getting fatigued due to a prolonged stationary position. Also, get a proper bike fit as this will make riding easier, efficient and reduce pain and soreness. Apart from these, a good pair of shoes will go a long way to making you comfortable on the pedal. Avoid shoes that allow your foot to flex as this can cause problems up your leg. Cycling shoes should be rigid to provide a stable sole to your foot and allow you to walk comfortably off the bike.

Stay motivated. The easiest way to become an expert is to cycle regularly. Work out your routine and make sure to follow it strictly. If your work place is not very far to cycle, and there are cycling lanes, you can try to fit it into your routine. You could also ask around for a bike ride. Joining a bike ride will increase your motivation to cycle, and it is a great experience too.

Training for cyclists learn to fix a flat Tyre. As much as it may sound strange, there is nothing like a flat-proof Tyre. It is inevitable that in your cycling life, you might experience a puncture. As a safety precaution to beginners, they should know how to fix their flat Tyre. Also, have the necessary equipment to fix a flat.

3 Exercises to Build a Better Body for Cycling

Bespoke Cycling Classes in Los Angeles, CaliforniaAs one who is training to become a pro cyclist, one of the greatest challenges you will face is strength training. Good cycling requires strength in the right areas of the body. You have to develop stamina in the parts that are in motion in both the upper and lower body when you are cycling on your bike. While the main aim is to increase muscle strength, you also want to develop endurance and stamina in order to be able to cycle for long periods. The aim is to develop a support system for your prime movers using assistance muscles. The better able they are to support your prime movers the faster and longer you will be able to cycle. There are certain exercises that you can use to develop a body for cycling:


Sagan’s Crunches

BESpoke crunchToday, most workouts that are required for development of abs require the use of abs-machines. Sagan’s crunches don’t need them at all, meaning that you will be working your body even harder. They are easy to do but may be exhausting the first few times that you try them. Lie on the floor, legs bent at the knees and then clasp your hands behind your head. Lift yourself off the floor towards your knees until you are about 4-6 inches off the floor (the aim is not to reach your knees with your forehead). Hold your body in that position for 5 seconds and then lower yourself slowly back to the floor. If you do 200 – 300 Sagan’s crunches a day you will build a lot of stamina in your upper body while at the same time developing fine abs. The reason why you need your torso muscles to be strong is that they are involved in the movement of every cycle that you make.

Basso’s Leg Curls

Basso’s Leg CurlsQuite obviously you need your leg muscles to be their best if you are going to do anything significant on a bike. In fact, some professional bikers will tell you that without good leg muscles you are wasting your time. Basso’s leg curls are for your hamstrings. You need to lie face down on a machine that you have already adjusted to fit your preferred height and weight resistance. Place your legs (just below the calves) beneath the padded lever, grab the machine by the sides and then curl your legs up and lift as far as they can go. Hold in place for one second and then lower them slowly. Repeat 20 times and more as you become more seasoned.





Boivin’s Ladder Moves

Boivin’s Ladder MovesYou want to use these to work on your quads. Agility ladders are important when building a body for cycling because they work on both cardio and strength training. You will also develop speed, concentration and agility, all of which are important in pro cycling. Boivin’s ladder was developed by Guillaume Boivin, a hockey player from Canada. It is a simple exercise that will not cost you much and that will get your legs fit very fast. All you need are anchor weights and a rope ladder than you can lay out on flat ground. Wrap the anchors around your ankles for resistance and then shuffle from side to side for 20 minutes. You can increase the weight of the anchors over time but make sure you don’t do it too fast or you will tear your calf muscles. You can shuffle for 20 minutes a day or go up and down a flight of 100 stairs.

All these exercises will help you develop a better body for cycling
but don’t push yourself too hard or you will be done before you have even begun. BESPOKE Cycling Studio in Los Angeles California

5 More Ways to Practice a Healthy Lifestyle

Starting exercise is one of the best decisions that you can make in your life. This is because it comes with numerous benefits such as reduce your risk of heart diseases and cancer, lose excessive weight, and achieve good health in general. But making the decision to exercise and lead a healthy lifestyle is one step. Here are 5 key things you need to do to prepare you for this:

Evaluate Your Fitness Level

You might have a rough idea about how fit you are. However, you need to assess and record baseline fitness scores to get a benchmark which you can use to quantity your progress. This entails assessing your muscular and aerobic fitness, body compositions and flexibility. You can do this by recording the duration you take to walk one mile, the rate of your pulse before and after you go for the walk, the number of push-ups that you can do at a given time and how far you can stretch forward while you are seated on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you. You should also measure your body mass index and waist diameter.Bespoke Cycling Studio

Create A fitness Program 

The second thing that you will need to do is create your fitness program. The program should fit your schedule and fitness goals. Other factors to consider when designing a fitness program are making sure that you create a balanced routine and one that is in line with your fitness goals. You should also go at your own pace and do different excises. You should also incorporate recovery time and ensure that you put everything down on paper. This way, you will be more dedicated to the program. At this point, note the diet changes that you need to make such as drinking more water and eating healthy and whole foods. See Healthy Eating Tips here.

Buy Appropriate Work Out Equipment, Attire, and Shoes

Buy shoes that match the type of excises that you plan to do. You should first try out different types of equipment at the gym before deciding to buy. If you are in Los Angeles California, you can visit us at Bespoke Cycling Studios and see the cycling equipment that you would like to buy.

Begin Your Exercise Routine

When starting out, remember to start slow and increase the intensity gradually; divide the exercise into small sessions throughout the day instead of doing it in a 30-1 hour session. You should also not be too hard on yourself; listen to your body and take a break or a day off. You should also be creative and find different ways to burn the calories such as hiking with friends or dancing. Indoor cycling is a great exercise routine, Bespoke has many professional certified Spin Instructors.

Keep Track Of Your Progress

Take a personal fitness assessment regularly, preferably at intervals of three to six months. These will help you know whether you need to intensify your workout routine or not.

Cycling For the Mind, Body, and Spirit

A number of benefits have been associated with cycling. You may love spinning to burn down the extra calories, for physical benefit, the heart pumping benefits or any other reason. This is all good but the good news is that your brain functions are also improved. Several studies have shown that spinning classes in Los Angeles, CA enlarges some structures within your brain to help you think faster, feel happier and improve your memory.

This sounds a bit unreal and you may be wondering how your sanity can be improved by spinning the bicycle’s wheels.  Now this is how:  your brain is made of two major tissues, the grey matter and the white matter.  The grey matter offers all the commands to your body and contains all the synapses. On the other hand the white matter is the communication center and uses different axons to connect to the grey matter.   The deal comes in here now, the more white matter you have the more increased connections you make hence anything that will help increase the white matter is a good.  Cycling is one such activity that adds the white matter. This is according to a study from Netherlands.

Bespoke Cycling Classes in Los Angeles, California

With the new discovery about the magic of spinning classes on the mind, you should restrain from any other brain boosters. There is a notable improvement on the mental state of cyclists after cycling for thirty minutes at a moderate speed.  With this work out practice, you are guaranteed better moods, neural connections that are strong and a sharp memory. This is in addition to other health benefits like lower risk of heart disease, lower chances of diabetes and cancer. Bespoke in California employs only the best instructors for your spinning classes.

The target muscles while cycling are the lower body muscles, the arm muscles, as well as the core muscles.  Lower body muscles those found within the legs: the soleus and gastrocnemius found in the calf, the thigh muscles namely quadriceps and hamstrings. The gluteal muscles are also a target. They are grouped into three; the gluteus minimus, gluteus medius and the gluteus maximus. These make up the buttocks muscles. The upper body muscles are additionally strengthened. The biceps and triceps on the arms and the deltoids on the shoulders are part of the upper body muscles.

Indoor VS Outdoor Cycling

The major question here is: do you have a bike? If yes, you have probably chosen outdoor cycling. If not then continue reading further as this article is aimed to help you to decide what type of cycling to choose. Here are 10 benefits of cycling classes.
An indoor cycling activity is able to keep your heart rate at 75 to 95 percent of your maximum. That’s very good for your body if your doctor allowed you to go in for sports. The reason for such heart rate increase is the heat of an indoor cycling room, the pressure of cycling classmates and the motivation of an instructor. Thus, you can get an excellent cardiovascular response and immense fat burn at every workout. During outdoor cycling, it is much more difficult to pedal so fast to achieve the same level of a heart rate. When you ride a bike, you need to balance the bike and navigate, so you are not always able to apply enough force to make muscles stronger and burn a significant amount of calories. The majority of people don’t ride a bike that hard.
Certified Spin Trainers
It’s all About Convenience
It goes without saying, indoor cycling is much more convenient. The only thing to do here is to show up to class and go. However, it may be a way less convenient for you to get to the gym. Outdoor cycling can become a mess because you need to dress appropriately, be prepared for bad weather, stop lights and traffic, etc. In addition, a bike in your garage is a way easier to use than an indoor bike to access which you need to go to the gym. So basically, this is the question of your location. Bespoke Cycling Studio is more convenient to use when living downtown while outdoor cycling can be more convenient when living in suburbs.
In general, for an average person, indoor cycling is better. However, those ones, who are committed to outdoor cycling as a lifestyle, will prefer riding a bike. In any case, you will get a good workout with both indoor cycling and outdoor cycling. If you’re a fan of cycling sports or ride a bike everywhere or do riding tours to mountains, then outdoor cycling is your choice. On the other hand, if you prefer to get a decent fitness activity with the utmost comfort, then a cycling studio is your choice.
