Riders come to Cycle House not just for the sweat, but for the lifestyle transformation. For the inspiration. For the 50 some people struggling, fighting and working beside them. For the proof that they can, and will, work harder than they ever thought possible.

With spring and summer around the corner, everyone starts talking about bikini bodies and diet tips. Yes, we’re in the business of building better bodies, but we’re also in the business of building better minds. Of inspiring every individual’s vision, and of changing the world.

Want to live a longer, healthier life? Start living. Start moving. Start thriving. As seen in Shape.com, research shows people who perform even the most basic movements live longer than those you don’t, especially the older you get. Even walking just 3 to 5 days a week makes a difference. If you stay active and keep your weight in a healthy range for your gender, age, and height, it certainly keeps your organs healthy, there’s less need for medication, and it will enable you to maintain a healthy lifestyle! Most health problems in America can be correlated to lifestyle.

The healthier you are, the better you feel. The better you feel, the longer you live. Get up. Right now. Do something for yourself. Live. Thrive.
