It’s been less than a week since we’ve debuted our brand refresh, but Flywheel has been powering lives since the very beginning. From helping our FLYFam shed inches and pounds to giving them the confidence and mental strength to overcome challenges, the benefits of riding and pulsing go way beyond the studio — they live in the body, heart, the mind, and the spirit. Check out four amazing stories below and then ask yourself: ‘How has Flywheel powered my life?’ We guarantee you’ll feel inspired to keep up the amazing work.

Ruth tells us about all the exciting changes you can expect, from site to studio and everything in between. Saddle up—it’s going to be one amazing ride.
