On The Rocks (OTR) Ride 45min
Ride OUTSIDE with us at our Clementine outdoor studio! We have created a private outdoor studio where you can, once again, Ride with a community. We maintain a small class size, and the bikes are socially distanced, and because they are stationary, you don't need to worry about anyone moving into your space. 45 minutes of cardio, power, speed & music. Get lost in it, make it count!
OTR Ride (virtual) 45 min
Take a virtual Ride outside with us at the Clementine On the Rocks studio. 45 minutes of cardio, power, speed & music. Get lost in it, make it count!
Ride 45 & 60 min
An intense cardio workout on the bike, set to specifically choreographed music. Each instructor has a different style. Some instructors get you moving, shaking and dancing on your bike, while others may be more "zen and zone" focused, taking you on a visual race ride, or anything in between. Wherever the instructor takes you on the Ride, our goal is that you experience the mind/body connection. Riders are on stationary indoor cycling specific bikes and are taken through flats, runs, jumps and climbs incorporated into a musical journey, resulting in an unbelievable, high intensity, interval cardio workout. Build endurance, burn fat and torch calories.
Ride & Sculpt 45 & 60 min
This class is a very strong, athletic, yet dance vibe infused ride. We integrate the cycling with 3-5 pound weights and/or resistance bands to burn and carve your muscles with intentional movements to provide amazing cardio and upper body sculpting. Our fun and motivating instructors play a really great mix of new and classic music, you will blaze crazy calories in a blink of an eye!
RHYTHM RIDE 45 & 60 min
A full body high intensity workout on the bike sculpting and strengthening the lower body, and utilizing light weights to sculpt the upper body. The class is choreographed with push-ups, squats, crunches and jumps—and even a little dancing—all while pedaling.
POWER RIDE 45 & 60 min
It's the Ride, with higher levels of resistance and power pushes through those upper level thresholds, back it down to recover, then back up just to uncomfortable again. You will power through hills, sprints, intervals and jumps while pushing your heart rate numbers. You are stronger than you think. #justdoit.
Yoga- Stretch & Yin for Spin 45min
A custom class designed by Georgette Kaftan for Clementine Ride Tribe members. “How you move on your mat is how you move in your life.” Georgette uses this phrase often to remind her students that the yoga poses or asanas are only a very small part of their yoga practice. By encouraging students to think less and feel more, Georgette hopes that they can learn to look inside, live where they fear to live, and emerge stronger.
Resistance bands are used in some of our classes, at the discretion of the instructor. The bands are similar to, but different than, using weights - slower, more isolated, intentional movements created with the resistance of the bands will carve beautiful muscles.
TheMVMNT 45 min

Melanie was a long distance runner and avid kick-boxer when a pelvic fracture sidelined her in 2010. “I needed to find a fitness regimen that gave me that same calorie burn and endorphin rush as running, without being as hard on my joints.” Melanie found what she was looking for when she took her first high intensity spin class. Ever since then she was hooked and decided to get her certification to teach.
Melanie's class is a POWER version of Rhythm Ride, a full body high intensity workout on the bike using your body resistance, light weights or a loop band to sculpt and strengthen the lower body.

She literally watched her body transform over the next 2 years; by incorporating strength training and spinning into her workout program, she achieved results she had never seen before. Spinning became her passion and now she teaches because she enjoys being able to help others achieve their fitness goals.
