“Our entire team of instructors is excited to bring an amazing indoor cycling experience to the Golden Triangle,” Brown said.
Revolution will offer classes for all levels, beginner to expert. Cyclers can choose from various classes including high-energy rides, high-intensity training bouts, pure power climbs, meditation rides and more.
“The classes will be an experience that combines authentic cycling principles with high energy and a fun group environment,” Brown said.
