Elizabeth Cutler and Julie RiceFrom joining gyms to taking Yoga classes, finding a workout that was both effective and satisfying did not come easily to Elizabeth and Julie. Unable to discover a cardio program that motivated and inspired (as well as burned calories), Julie and Elizabeth set out to create a new kind of routine. Fusing elements of indoor cycling with upper body workouts, the two opened a

Julie and Elizabeth speak with Jessica about how an unknown cycling studio transformed itself into a lifestyle brand, from scratch.
