We are SO excited to introduce you to CycleBar’s Shannon Reznik. Shannon is a ball of energy, and if you haven’t been to one of her classes yet, put it on your Summer Bucket List! You will leave feeling empowered AND exhausted – a winning combination. You can also catch Shannon at Pure Barre SouthPark where she also teaches. Have fun getting to know Shannon and make sure to keep reading to get more information on an amazing Memorial Day sale at CycleBar Waverly and CycleBar Midtown.
What brought you to CycleBar?Tell us a little bit about your job at CycleBar.
Nonstop! I manage both the Midtown and Waverly studios and am incredibly lucky to have a rockstar staff and support team. From my assistant managers to CBX (Cyclebar experience specialists) staff, to the Cyclestars we are all working together to build a true brand in Charlotte. I’m lucky to work in the community to promote, market and grow, but I still get to experience our incredible riders day to day in studio.
What’s the best part of your job?
The community. A lot of studios work to build a community atmosphere, but I can honestly say that Cyclebar has successfully done this. As I mentioned, out staff is incredible, and I’m lucky to call them family. The riders that we’ve had the pleasure of meeting have become friends, and combined, it makes waking up early or working ‘odd’ hours seem like a lot more fun than work!
What makes CycleBar the best cycle studio in town?
Again, the community. We have incredible equipment and technology, a great atmosphere, and an overall brand; but, what sets us apart is the good vibes in the studio. We pride ourselves on learning riders names, and while the workout will get your heart pumping and the sweat falling, you’ll leave smiling, and THAT makes it the absolute best!
What would you tell someone who is new to cycle? Any tips or tricks before coming to the studio?
Come with an open mind, and fifteen minutes early! We provide you with everything you need (water, towel, shoes),
and the staff and instructors will help you check in and get set up. Be prepared to work hard and HAVE FUN!
Anything new coming up in the next couple of months at CycleBar?
We’re planning a number of outdoor pop ups at local breweries, and will be out in the community at various events. Keep on the lookout for new cyclestars to join our family and for additional class times this summer!
You’re also a teacher at Pure Barre SouthPark and Myers Park. What makes these two workouts a perfect complement to each other?
My two favorites! Cyclebar is the perfect cardio addition to the Pure Barre technique. Both workouts are musically driven and high energy, while Pure Barre has more of an emphasis on building muscle (I don’t believe in the word ‘tone’!) and Cyclebar adds the dance party.
What’s your favorite go-to healthy snack to keep your energy up through a busy day?
Favorite workout clothing line?
Favorite song or artist to add to your CycleBar playlist?
I absolutely love violins. I try to sneak a song or two with a philharmonic vibe almost every class. Right now my go to is “Wake the Warrior” by Droeloe. It’s incredibly powerful! For a crowd pleaser – Cardi B. Obviously!
Definition of a perfect day?
Oh boy. no alarm clock! A workout at PB and CB, a walk with my dog [shes REALLY cute], a glass of champagne outside with my friends, and a book from my book club at night! Ok maybe the book then the champagne….
