Our Story

Years ago 2 best friends had an idea: Bring a workout to central Iowa that had a consistent feel, a killer vibe, and a kick ass way to sweat alongside friends. After researching beat driven spin studios throughout N. America, CampusCycle was born. Ames opened in January 2017 and Ankeny almost to the day in January of 2018.

But it had to be more than a boutique fitness spot offering athletica wear, including the exclusive rights to distribute industry leader, lululemon. It had to be more than your normal workout or average staff that barely know your name. It had to be personable, dynamic, and always inspiring. It had to involve the best bikes and cleanest facilities, both true at our locations.

Staff became a key focus early on. Attract servant leaders with caring hearts who could provide an unreal experience with unique high energy playlists every ride. They guide, motivate, instruct, and inspire with every song. Our studio rides to the beat of these great coaches.

Riders were next. Who are we for? We are for anyone, both males & females. We have 12 year olds, 68 year olds, and everyone in between. In our judgement free zone you can benefit from 45 minutes in a dark room with no distractions while feeding off the energy of those around you.

What is it we do best? We physically challenge, mentally inspire, emotionally improve, and spiritually lift you while you ride a stationary bike to the beat of the music. We provide a total body workout, burning 400-700 calories each time, and can benefit any fitness level.


We ride fast. We ride strong. But most of all, we ride fun!
