We do drink champagne after class on Friday night 😉
With every fitness studio comes a set of unspoken rules and etiquettes that helps us maintain a positive, respectful and of course FUN, environment for everyone!
Below, we outline the essential do's and don'ts of Inspire! Whether you're a seasoned rider or a first-timer, these tips will help you feel confident and prepared for your next Inspire class.
THE DO'S and the DON'TS
We DO encourage you to sing at the top of your lungs.
Whatever your music vibe is, we know exactly what it's like when your favourite song comes on in class (cough *Taylor Swift* cough); and we strongly encourage you to sing the lyrics as loud as you can while riding to the beat or boxing it out.
We DON'T love it when you have your phone in class.
We love to see your pre-class and post-class pics, however to make sure that every rider or boxer in the room has a great Inspire experience, we would really appreciate if you saved phone use for outside of class.
At Inspire we strongly believe that our classes are a 45-minute opportunity for you to zone out and connect with your mind and body, so before class make sure that your phone is in a locker outside or at least switched to theatre mode and placed screen down (Apple watches being in theatre mode would also be greatly appreciated 🙏).
We DO encourage you to have a cheeky beveragino post Friday night classes.
It's been a long week and you've earned it. Enough said 🥂.
We DON'T love it when you're 10 minutes late to class (and expect us to let you in).
We understand that life happens and that sometimes things pop up that are out of your control. However, to ensure the safety of all participants in the class we have a strict '5 minute lock out' policy. If you are more than 5 minutes late (for experienced riders) you will be denied entry into class.
For new riders, we ask that you please arrive 15 minutes early to class to allow us to set you up safely and unfortunately we will be unable to let you into class if you are late at all. We appreciate your cooperation to adhering to these policies and helping us maintain a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone!
We DO love it when you send song requests to the instructors on Instagram 🎶.
If you have a song that you just can't get out of your head at the moment, don't be shy! Our instructors are always looking for song inspo and we love to know what you're listening to right now. DM away!!! 💌
Our current faves include Rihanna (still not over that SuperBowl performance... sorry not sorry), any feel good throw back songs, and Fred Again.
You can check out our Spotify account here to listen to your instructors favourite tunes!
We DON'T love it when you forget your sweat towel or don't bring boxing wraps 🥊.
We take hygiene seriously in the studio. If you forget to bring certain items to class, like a towel or boxing wraps, we unfortunately cannot lend them for free. However, don't worry – you can purchase them from the reception desk. Towels are $15 and boxing wraps are $20
We DO love when you waitlist confirm a class ✔️
Make sure to turn on notifications for the Inspire app. This way, you'll be alerted if you get added to a class and can let us know if you can make it. If you can't make a last-minute class add, that's no problem – just give us a heads up so we can give your spot to someone else who's eager to get their workout hit for the day!
We also DO strongly encourage post class coffee or cocktails; depending on your favourite class time 😉
'Salt' for coffee and 'Niky' (right next door) for a bevvy are our recommendations! Cheers x

We DON'T love it when you leave class early (yes this includes leaving before stretch 😬).
We understand that emergencies and work may come up, but sticking around helps build a sense of community and is also great for your body. After a tough workout, stretching is essential to help your body recover and prepare for the next class. So, if you can, try to stay for the full duration of class!
We DO love to see your mirror selfies and post class sweat pics 📸.
Don't forget to tag @inspirecycle so that we can share the good vibes and your beautiful sweaty pics on our socials. Extra points for big smiles 😁!
We DON'T love when you park other people's cars into the car park.
We kindly ask that you refrain from parking other people's cars in our car park. Our reception team may need to interrupt a class to request that someone move their car, which can be an awkward and disruptive experience for everyone involved.
Parking someone in can also interrupt the flow of class and impact the experience of other Inspire clients. We ask that you please allow extra time to find a car park before class, as Teneriffe is a busy area.
We DO love to celebrate your birthdays and give you a shout out in class!
If it's your friends birthday, don't be afraid to tap our instructors on the shoulder and let them know! We want to make sure everyone feels special, especially on their birthday 🥳.
So, remember to sing loud, save phone use for outside of class, arrive on time, and celebrate your victories (or just the end of the work week) with a cheeky beveragino 😉!
