Rise, your way 


Our immersive indoor cycling classes are not your conventional gym style workouts. We use sound, visuals and sunlight simulation that reflect the energy demands of each class. They give extra motivation when it’s needed and help you power down when you need to rest.

The result? You’ll release stress-busting, feel-good endorphins that boost your ‘happy’.

The FirstLight difference

So what’s involved? Our signature 45 and 60 minute full body cycle workouts include cardio, mindfulness and meditation, together with our best-in-class upper-body strength workout using body bars to build and tone core muscles.

Our inspiring trainers - better known as the Maestro Instructors choreograph each class to their own uplifting playlists against a backdrop of amazing widescreen graphics that will transport you to the FirstLight destinations of Manhattan, Ibiza, Africa, London, Rio or Dubai, from the comfort of our West London studio in Shepherd’s Bush. Our sunlight simulation technology enhances these exhilarating experiences, working in perfect harmony with our Magic Mirror system behind the instructor, fully immersing you in the themes and transporting you beyond the studio and out into the world.

A seamless blend of light, visuals and sounds. This is no ordinary cycling class. This is pure energy. Timed to the beat. A workout experience with a unique twist.
