RIDE DC provides a fresh approach to fitness in the U-Street community. Offering an invigorating look and feel, technology for tracking performance and new styles of classes, RIDE DC takes client service to the next level. RIDE hosts some of DC’s best instructors and was founded by three neighborhood residents. Rachel Goldberg, Allison Shuffield and Zac Smith each bring a unique skillset to the business and are committed to being active in the studio and the community. In fact, RIDE owners can be seen popping in and out of the studio, supporting their instructors, meeting clients and guests and even leading the RIDE!
It all began in 2012 when Rachel and Zac met through an indoor cycling studio where they were both instructors – they know their stuff. Allison and Zac were college friends at Florida State University – go Noles! They continually found themselves discussing a new concept for fitness in DC. The trio came together around one key idea: a one-of-a-kind, technology-forward, boutique cycling studio with a more personal approach to relationship service in fitness.
RIDE DC introduces DC’s first-ever indoor-cycling performance tracking software. Each RIDE bike is equipped to monitor clients pedaling speed, calories burned, heart rate, mileage and various other statistics. RIDE will customize indoor cycling programs for clients that help maximize goal achievement, and ensure they are getting fitter, faster and stronger with every RIDE.
These performance metrics will be stored to clients’ private online profiles and RIDErs will be automatically notified of their goal progress following each class. They can also self-select for their numbers to appear on the RIDErboard at the front of the class to compete with fellow RIDErs.
RIDE brings together a team of the city’s best instructors, all with a passion for fitness and hospitality. Zac, Rachel and Allison look forward to meeting you!
Live. Love. RIDE DC.
