TYLT Cycle
139 12th Ave N, Nashville, TN 37203

TYLT Cycle, opening at the end of August, in the North Gulch, is a revolutionary, indoor cycling studio that offers cycling, strength training, and yoga, all under one roof. If these classes alone don’t bring fitness enthusiasts to a new level, the LED “nightclub” lighting and heart-pumping music will be sure to take you on a one-of-a-kind fitness journey you have yet to experience in Nashville. TYLT has partnered with Real Ryder to exclusively introduce an innovative, three-dimensional cycling technology. Not only do these bikes burn 20% more calories than a stationary bike, but they focus on rhythm, sway, motion, cardio, balance, and cadence, unlike any other indoor cycling studio around. Don’t call it a stationary bike. TYLT Cycle will offer riders six different classes from which to choose: Strictly Cycling; Express Cycle (30min); Cyclone (which incorporates cycling and strength and plyometric stations); Tylt Triple Threat aka TTT (15min cycle, 15min floor, 15min cycle); and, on the weekends CycleFlow (25min cycle – 45min vinyasa flow). Additionally, for those looking to have more of a one-on-one experience or are looking to host their own cycling party, TYLT will also offer private rides, giving you the option to pick your instructor, personalize your playlist, and receive one-on-one attention from our staff. Owners Allison Jacob, Paige Fuson and DeMarco Murray are (individually) about as opposite as they come, but together, they are bringing Nashville one wild ride!
