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!”

The Avenue Breaks Ground!

Construction on The Avenue downtown is officially underway!

In a ground breaking ceremony held last Tuesday, Sealy Property Development, the City of Huntsville and the Chamber of Commerce rolled up their sleeves, grabbed a shovel and officially “broke ground” on the $34 million dollar project.

And Charlie Sealy III and his wife Sasha who are developing the project, weren’t the only ones excited to see it officially get underway. Mayor Tommy Battle was also excited for what he thought Charlie and Sasha had in store for downtown Huntsville.

“I have a feeling if I know Charlie and Sasha this will be something that is very unique for this area, something that has some very special aspects to it that is hard to match,” he said.

Charlie himself is excited to bring the block back to it’s former glory when, during the 1860s to 1970s, it was a bustling block home to a variety of mixed uses, such as a hotel, residences, and various businesses.

“Since the ‘70s, it’s been vacant,” stated Sealy. “Sasha and I really look forward to bringing it back to life and getting activity here in downtown.”

The development includes a resort-style swimming pool, high-end amenities, a 400-vehicle parking deck, large sidewalks and variety of retail shops and restaurants featuring outdoor dining spaces.

Crunkleton & Associates is excited to be handling the retail leasing for this development and to start announcing tenants soon! Make sure to subscribe to our blog so you’ll be the first to know when we start making announcements!
