Revolution Spin Studio (904 Sherman Ave., Evanston, revolutionspinning.‌com) is about to expand its Evanston location—and the timing couldn’t be better. There’s a wait list for classes like 90-minute Boot Camp, which promises to burn up to 1,300 calories. The studio features the Cadillac of spin bikes, the Spinner NXT, which boasts a high degree of adjustability for every size.

And, the Chicago cycling sensation Flywheel now has a state-of-the-art studio in Highland Park (600 Central Ave., Suite 123, Highland Park, flywheelsports.‌com). Athletes in training will love the central electronic system that monitors and tracks each rider’s real-time performance data over time. Custom FireFly bikes offer a smooth ride in a stadium setting with an upper-body workout to boot.
