The Reception Service

The Class Experience

CycleBar Crows Nest received The Fit Guide 4-Star Class Experience Award, making it one of Sydney’s stand-out offerings.

Our instructor was energetic and gave buckets of encouragement to the whole class. This helped create an atmosphere that was fun and lively, and at the end of the session our instructor even invited us all to a party the following weekend.

The Equipment And Studio

The training area was in great condition and the equipment was of very high quality. The screen attached to the bike allowed the client to track their pace and it made it easy to follow the instructor.

The logos on the bikes and the lighting around the studio contributed to a strong sense of brand in the studio.

The Facilities And Public Areas

Workout and shower towels were provided free of charge. Lockers without locks were provided. Free water refill stations were available.

The public areas had a consistent and impactful design throughout. Our evaluator also had a welcome message written on their locker, which was a nice, personal touch. The showers and toilets were clean and in great condition.

Digital And Technology

The website was easy to navigate and the communication from the club was helpful.

The technological highlight, however, was the in-class screen which tracked the stats of each class participant and periodically flashed information on various metrics. This helped push our evaluator by creating a competitive, but still friendly, vibe.
