Rebel Ride, 6449 Transit Road, East Amherst, offers strength and conditioning training, spinning classes and accessibility to most people, no matter what their ability level, according to owner Erika Brason.

“This is something that I’m very passionate about, and it really started from scratch,” Brason said. “Rebel Ride is really the first of its kind in this area, and I think we did a good job of getting the word out about who we are.”

There are two types of 50-minute spinning classes at Rebel Ride. The first is a rhythm ride, which is a total body workout with a play list of upbeat music throughout the session. The other class is a power ride, which focuses on power metrics by working through hills, flats and intervals without the use of hand weights or choreography.

“For those who have ever had a bad experience with spinning, there is good news about Rebel Ride. We start right from scratch, and we welcome people of all skill levels so there is no pressure at all when you walk in,” Brason said. “Our staff helps make it a very welcoming environment, and they do a great job of showing people all of the benefits that come from spinning.”

Studio B of Rebel Ride is where the strength training and conditioning takes place. There are two small classes offered in this studio: In-Trinity and TRX Suspension Training. In-Trinity is designed for all levels and combines yoga, Pilates and martial arts to promote physical and mental well-being.

TRX Suspension Training uses body weight and gravity to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability.

Rebel Ride is open from 5:30 to 10 a.m. and 4 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; 7 a.m. to noon Saturday; and 8 a.m. to noon Sunday.

For all new customers, the first ride is free at Rebel Ride.
