Ramp Up Your Workout At Zoom Indoor Cycling—Coming To The Avenue!

Tired of your boring workout routine? Can’t stand another minute on a treadmill? Huntsville will soon have a new way to get fit thanks to the addition of Zoom Indoor Cycling coming to The Avenue later this summer!

The indoor cycling studio will be in a 2,588 SF space next to Scout & Molly’s, a new women’s boutique that was recently announced on our blog. Husband and wife owners of Zoom, Justin and Cara Goodman, are ready to bring fun, effective workouts to the Downtown Huntsville area.

“I think people will be surprised at how fun it is to get a killer workout,” said Justin. “The studio has theatre-quality sound, the playlists are always changing, and our instructors do an incredible job at pushing people to reach their individual limits—and they’re having fun so time flies by.”

Whether you’re looking for a heart-pumping workout or just need an hour to forget your worries, Zoom has a class that will cater to your needs.

“With the dim lighting and stadium seating in the studio room, it’s an environment where everyone has the freedom to work on being their best self without worrying about feeling self-conscious,” said Justin. “Our job is to support clients and inspire them with great music and coaching. We give them a place to unplug and let go of the stress of the day. ”

Zoom will offer its signature zRide, a 45-minute full body rhythm ride, 7 days a week with convenient times throughout the day including before and after work hours.

Zoom’s classes are based on proven interval-style cardio sessions that promise an “empowering, uplifting, and entertaining” workout experience. Justin, drawing from 15 years of experience as a professional DJ, spends anywhere from 10 to 15 hours each week creating customized playlists for each class.

“We ride to the beat of the music the whole way,” said Justin. “All of our instructors bring a unique perspective to their 45-minute ride and that’s what makes the workout fit for all kinds of people.”

To keep things fun, Zoom Cycling offers themed rides, like 90s Hip Hop Throwbacks or Beyoncé vs. Justin Bieber, several times each week. Whatever the music selection, the classes are always high-energy and exhilarating.

What makes Zoom different than other indoor cycling studios?

“The entire Zoom experience is very different than what is offered at the local YMCA or box gym,” said Justin. “Our online sign-up process makes it very easy to sign up for memberships and book class online. Once you’re in our system, you can browse class times, see who the instructor is, and reserve your specific bike within each class you book.”

Best of all, there is no stress or anxiety about showing up 30 minutes prior to grab your number in the class.  Zoom’s studio is clean and calm like a high-end spa. They also provide fresh workout towels and filtered water complimentary to all clients. In the studio itself, there’s no bad seat. Bikes are arranged on stadium-style risers and each bike also has a console that displays ride information.

Students can opt-in to receive stat emails after classes by turning on their bike consoles. The machine tracks performance over time and helps clients monitor their success.

In addition to their custom class style, Zoom also spends countless hours preparing instructors to lead a class. “We typically do 3-6 months of training with each of our instructors before they ever lead a class solo,” said Justin. “It’s a rigorous process, but it’s something that helps us stand apart.”

“We try to make every class a great experience by keeping the group motivated,” said Justin. “And it’s not just about burning calories for us. Zoom is a cycling sanctuary that helps you achieve your goals both physically and mentally.”

Downtown Huntsville will be Zoom’s second location.

Justin and Cara opened the first Zoom Indoor Cycling in Charlottesville, Virginia in April 2016. Since then, business has been booming, and they decided it was time to expand. As a native of Huntsville and a fitness enthusiast, Cara quickly narrowed in on their second location.

“Cara is from Huntsville—born and raised,” said Justin. “It’s a city that we love and a place we are excited to bring our new concept to. Downtown is growing so rapidly and we wanted to be part of the exciting movement.”

The couple felt that it was perfect timing for the studio to come to Downtown Huntsville, as the area is quickly becoming a more urban space and embracing new business markets that are popular in larger cities. They chose The Avenue because it was an “exciting and innovative” project.

Justin also mentioned The Avenue developers, Charlie and Sasha Sealy, and their commitment to enhancing the downtown area as a deciding factor in location selection. Sasha thinks the addition of Zoom to The Avenue will help complete the vision for the project.

“We are excited that Zoom is expanding from Charlottesville to Huntsville and we look forward to welcoming them,” said Sasha Sealy, developer at The Avenue. “Spin studios are extremely popular in urban areas, so it’s only fitting that Zoom found its home in Downtown Huntsville. We think it will be a great fitness option for The Avenue’s residents, as well as everyone in the Rocket City.”

Zoom brings a new spin on the indoor cycling concept.

 “We pride ourselves in creating an innovative, immersive indoor cycling experience,” said Justin. “We are here to inspire and motivate people at all fitness levels to push their limits. Come see us at The Avenue later this year and we guarantee a sweaty good time. First class is free to try so you have nothing to lose!”

 Projected Store Hours:

Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Sunday 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

“The revitalization of the downtown area is one of the best things to happen to the city in years,” said Lori Mullins, owner of Scout & Molly’s future Huntsville location. “The project has provided the city and surrounding areas with a centralized location for entertainment, art, and food while preserving our local history and culture.”

Scout & Molly’s began in Raleigh, NC, in 2002 and was the dream of entrepreneur and Founder, Lisa Kornstein. Scout & Molly’s is where today’s transcending woman goes to find that special little something that’ll fit just right. Scout & Molly’s boutiques are merchandised with a simple rule in mind: “No style fits all,” which is why maintaining individuality while dressed in the latest trends is a necessity for all of its customers. Scout & Molly’s locations are home to your favorite designers and unique finds that are sure to produce both confidence and compliments.

“As the owner of its downtown location, I will work with both the clients and the Scout & Molly’s buyers to provide clothing and accessories that match the unique style of Huntsville women,” said Lori.

Shoppers at the new boutique will never have to worry about stale styles. Lori said that new brands are continuously being sought by Scout & Molly’s, ensuring that updated inventory is always available. Among the brands carried by Scout & Molly’s include makers like Fifteen Twenty, Sanctuary, and AG Jeans. The boutique will also offer a free styling program, closet makeovers, and host private shopping events.

“We can’t wait to be an active member of the downtown retail community,” said Lori. “The Avenue developers are vested in Huntsville and the success of downtown; no other Huntsville retail and residential environment offers what The Avenue does.”

The Avenue – Urban Living (And Retail) At Its Best

Charlie and Sasha Sealy, developers of The Avenue, realized the brilliant opportunity to create a true “Live-Work-Play” mixed-use development that would bring Huntsville residents a convenient place to live while giving them options to wine, dine, shop, and play all within one facility. Now with the critical mass of people living in Downtown Huntsville, the Sealys are seeing more and more retailers interested in coming to The Avenue.

“We are very excited to welcome Scout & Molly’s to The Avenue,” said Sasha. “The stylish boutique is well-known in larger cities like Nashville, and this will be its first location in Alabama. The boutique features one-of-a-kind clothing, jewelry, and accessories, and will complement our development by adding to the downtown lifestyle.”

The Avenue is increasingly becoming a sought-after retail space for several reasons, including the important component of synergy among tenants. Crunkleton broker Anusha Alapati worked directly with Scout & Molly’s and The Avenue to create the ideal match.

“Retail synergy is important for any successful shopping district,” said Anusha. “Crunkleton has been working to craft a cohesive tenant mix at The Avenue, as well as other projects in downtown.” Anusha also worked closely with other key downtown developments like The Garage at Clinton Row.

“The addition of Scout & Molly’s will continue the city’s efforts of turning the downtown district into a stellar shopping and entertainment district,” she said. “It’s only going to grow from here.”

Welcome Scout & Molly’s Boutique!

For Lori, August can’t come soon enough. She’s ready to open her doors and showcase the personality and versatility that Scout & Molly’s will bring to downtown.

“I believe the women who live in Huntsville will appreciate the fact that they no longer have to drive to Birmingham, Nashville or Atlanta to find those special pieces of clothing,” said Lori. “They can find it in their own backyard—right here at The Avenue. We are very appreciative of this opportunity, and we look forward to increasing synergy, enhancing downtown, and creating lasting relationships with our customers. See you in August, Huntsville!”

Meet The Avenue’s Newest Tenant—Soda Jerk!

What does it look like when you blend modern takes on traditional cuisine, a dash of nostalgia, and a lively downtown vibe into one location? It looks like Tom Sheffer’s newest restaurant concept, Soda Jerk! And it’s coming to The Avenue on Jefferson Street this September.

But don’t expect a cartoon of your typical 1950’s soda fountain shop.

“We’re not trying to be a caricature or a moment in time,” said Tom Sheffer, seasoned restaurateur and owner of Soda Jerk. “There won’t be any 50’s music or retro outfits. Instead, we wanted to create a modern spin on the soda fountain concept. We’re calling it ‘fine-fast’ service, and will offer quintessential American fare, but done really well.”

Soda Jerk’s menu will feature crowd favorites including burgers, hot dogs, tacos, ice cream, and milkshakes. “We are also going to have a full bar in the space,” said Tom. “We wanted to take advantage of the downtown entertainment district, and give people a place to sit out on the patio and enjoy the atmosphere.” A selection of craft cocktails, beers, and wines will be available.

Charlie and Sasha Sealy, developers of The Avenue, are also excited to welcome Soda Jerk to the development.

“We are thrilled to welcome Tom Sheffer and his latest restaurant concept, Soda Jerk, to The Avenue,” said Sasha. “This fast-casual eatery and bar will be a great addition to the Downtown Huntsville dining scene. And we know The Avenue’s residents—as well as the rest of the Rocket City—will love it!”

The idea for Soda Jerk grew from Tom’s existing restaurant, Avo and Dram, located in Birmingham. Tom began looking at ways he could create the same high-quality food, but in a more convenient counter-service setting. And so, Soda Jerk was born.

“What we loved about the idea was trying to create something that offered more counter service that would appeal to large lunch traffic,” said Tom. “This fit perfectly with the pace and life in Downtown Huntsville.”

Tom is no novice to the restaurant business.

Jackson’s in Nashville was Tom’s first restaurant concept, which later expanded into a second location in Homewood. Avo and Dram followed, and the awards and recognitions began flowing in. Avo and Dram alone received the 2016 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, and numerous BirminghamWine.com awards. But with all of that success in mind, why did Tom choose Huntsville?

“Running a restaurant in Downtown Huntsville has much in common with doing so in a bigger city,” said Tom. “If you visit New York, Chicago or Boston, everything is a mixed-use development by necessity. They are along the lines of The Avenue and Downtown Huntsville with residential, office, and retail in one space. The downtown growth certainly attracted us to the area.”

Tom said that having a location downtown will immediately “add life” to the restaurant, and continue to thrive thanks to plenty of different choices and back-and-forth traffic among tenants.

“The pace of Huntsville is good,” said Tom. “It’s growing population wise and they are opening a lot of new business. But we don’t normally do demographic studies. We are still small enough to go with gut feelings, and for us, The Avenue is perfect for our next location.”

Its appeal is in its simplicity.

“With Jackson’s, we were trying to be all things to all people, and it has worked, but I think the simplicity of Soda Jerk is what we are most excited about,” said Tom. “It will still be an uptown restaurant with uptown ingredients like we offer at Avo and Dram. But served faster and with smaller portions.”

Tom sees it as a perfect place to grab lunch between business meetings, and also a great place to bring the family.

“We think we will fit perfectly with Downtown Huntsville and what’s happening there. We look forward to opening and giving the neighborhood quality food with fast service.”

Stay tuned for more updates on the opening of Soda Jerk. Let us know what you think of this new Downtown dining option!
