A Bit of History

In September 2008, PedalSpin Studio opened its doors in Montrose, CA—a charming Los Angeles suburb with a small-town vibe a short 15 minutes north of downtown. Tired of big-box gyms, from the outset, founders and sisters-in-law Cindy and Michelle Bell focused on creating  an affordable premium fitness experience in boutique, neighborhood spaces. 

Word of the new studio spread, and classes began to fill on a regular basis. Once Cindy and Michelle realized students were driving from as far as 45-minutes away for classes, they knew PedalSpin was destined to grow.

In November 2008, PedalSpin Rancho Cucamonga opened to serve the communities of Southern California’s famed Inland Empire (aka the 909). Pedal Rancho offers wide array of classic and unique indoor cycling-based classes in an inspiring and spacious boutique studio.

PedalSpin opened its third studio in Claremont, CA (also the 909) in April 2010. Claremont is renowned for being home to the top-notch Claremont Colleges, a quaint downtown, and an epic cycling community. In 2011, famed mountain stage of the Amgen Tour of California started just two blocks away from the studio. In 2014, PedalSpin Claremont added a bustling Pilates program to its fitness mix. 

Bryan Yates, a professional cycling coach and local elite-level racer, joined the Pedal team as co-owner of PedalSpin South Pasadena 2011. Nestled in the heart of South Pasadena less than two miles south of the iconic Rose Bowl, this studio offers indoor cycling, TRX suspension training classes, circuit training, and outdoor group runs and rides. We are also active sponsors of local fitness clubs and events.

We support our communities and neighborhoods. Since the beginning, all our studios have hosted pedal-a-thons, supported neighborhood causes, and sponsored high school mountain bike teams.
