CycleBar to Debut in New York City with Multiple Former Flywheel Locations

2021-06-22T18:42:08-04:00June 22nd, 2021|Tags: , , , , , , |

Xponential Partnership with Palladin Consumer Retail Partners to Further Expand Indoor Cycling Brand’s Footprint.

IRVINE, Calif. — Xponential Fitness brand CycleBar, which is the nation’s largest indoor cycling franchise, announced today it will enter the New York City market for the first time with six studios expected to open over the summer, beginning with a studio in Noho in late June. This expansion was made possible through Xponential’s existing relationship with Palladin Consumer Retail Partners, a Boston-based private equity firm, and their establishment of “PB Metro” in 2019 which is now rebranding six former Flywheel Sports studios that closed permanently last year, along with further territory development in the market. The initial six NYC CycleBar locations include:

  • Noho – 51 Astor Place, New York, NY
  • Flatiron – 39 W. 21st Street, New York, NY
  • Upper East Side – 201 E. 67th Street, New York, NY
  • NoMad – 420 Park Ave S., New York, NY
  • Tribeca – 415 Greenwich St., New York NY
  • Williamsburg – 173 North 3rd Street Brooklyn, NY

This partnership with PB Metro will also bring about one new CycleBar studio in Philadelphia at 1521 Locust Street.

“After years of being a staple in the boutique cycling industry, we are excited CycleBar has reached the Big Apple with the help of Palladin,” said Anthony Geisler, CEO of Xponential Fitness. “With a devoted population of riders in NYC and a pent-up demand for local neighborhood boutique fitness, the time could not be better for us to debut our high-energy, rhythm-based workout to such a fitness-focused market in the United States.”

This announcement continues the ongoing partnership between Xponential and Palladin, led by Xponential’s EVP of Franchise Development, Jason Losco, which began with Palladin’s 2019 formation of PB Metro and subsequent expansion of sister-brand, Pure Barre, throughout NYC. There are currently 16 open Pure Barre studios in the greater New York market owned by PB Metro, with an additional 12 licenses to be developed over the next three years.

In addition to converting the six Flywheel locations to CycleBar studios in NYC, the partnership with PB Metro gives the group the right to develop 23 more CycleBar studios in the NY metro market over the next five years. Two of these locations will introduce dual concepts, with both a CycleBar studio and a Pure Barre studio in the same building.

Rob Fioretti, Managing Director of Palladin commented, “We are excited to grow our partnership with Xponential as we begin to grow the CycleBar brand and continue to expand the Pure Barre brand and in New York and other regions. With the exclusive rights to develop both concepts in our territory, our Pure Barre and CycleBar studios will be the premier boutique fitness platform in this area offering clients a truly unique studio fitness experience.”

“We are thrilled to watch Xponential’s continued expansion,” said Mark Grabowski, Managing Partner at Snapdragon Capital Partners who backs Xponential Fitness and its brands. “The transaction will establish CycleBar’s footprint in one of the most important markets for boutique fitness, and we are excited for CycleBar to enter the New York market.

STRIDE Expands to the Mile High City with Agreements to Open Seven Denver-Area Studios

2021-05-12T11:22:59-04:00May 12th, 2021|Tags: , , , , , |

Emerging Boutique Fitness Concept Focused on Walking and Running Inks Deals to Open in Metro and Surrounding Areas.

IRVINE, Calif. — STRIDE, a boutique fitness franchise that is reinventing the definition of a runner through treadmill-based interval training, announced today it has signed a new agreement which gives the franchise partner the opportunity to bring seven new studios to the greater Denver area. Backed by boutique fitness curator Xponential Fitness, the treadmill studio franchise seeks to create a welcoming, supportive space where anybody can be a walker or runner.

The first of the seven new studios is expected to open its doors in fall 2021 with additional locations soon after. The first two locations are planned to open in the Denver Tech Center and Southeast Aurora. The Denver deal was signed by brothers, Alfonso and Andres Osuna, who will be opening their additional new studios throughout the Denver metro area. While this will be their first franchise business, they own and operate a Colorado-based real estate investment and property management company as well as  a digital marketing company in Monterrey, Mexico. They also have past experience managing fitness centers.

Colorado has consistently ranked as the fittest state in the union for the last decade and yet, there is no single indoor space dedicated to walking, jogging, and running,” said Jeff Stokes, President of STRIDE. “We saw such a great opportunity to reach the people of Denver and help fill the void by providing safe, healthy, beautiful spaces where anyone can walk, jog, run and transform.”

Founded in 2017 in Pasadena, CA, STRIDE taps into the millions of runners and people who identify as walkers in the United States with its treadmill-based workouts that provide a mix of cardio and strength intervals, all performed on STRIDE’s state-of-the-art Woodway Treadmills. Whether someone wants to walk, jog, or run, there are levels for everyone to participate, progress, and prosper. With three core class formats and a unique leveling system that allows clients to take every class as a walker or runner, each individual is able to find the workout that best aligns with their fitness abilities and goals.

In addition to Denver, STRIDE has recently announced several other franchise agreements in markets including  Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Jacksonville Beach, FL, Manhattan Beach, CA and Irvine, CA.

As part of its parent company, Xponential Fitness, and supported by its seasoned corporate team with decades in fitness franchising, STRIDE offers franchisees tremendous support, infrastructure, and knowledge to ensure their success in launching and operating a franchise. The total investment range to open a STRIDE studio is $366,750$546,950. For more information about STRIDE, you can visit https://www.runwithstride.com/franchise.


Founded in 2017, STRIDE is a treadmill-based cardio and strength workout designed for every fitness level.

The fast-growing boutique yoga brand backed by Xponential Fitness announced today it has opened its 100th studio overall and surpassed over 500 signed franchise agreements.

The Danburgs reside in McMurray, PA and are the parents to 3 amazing kids. They have been practicing yoga for over a decade and always had an interest in building a business together.

“While yoga has always been popular, the pandemic and other challenges brought on by 2020 have certainly exacerbated the demand for YogaSix’s inclusive and modern take on the practice,” said Lindsay Junk, President of YogaSix. “It has been exciting and extremely rewarding to see our franchise partners get creative in the face of adversity over the past year, encouraging several new entrepreneurs to join the YogaSix family and continue our yoga revival around the world.”

With world-class instruction, YogaSix offers diverse yoga and fitness programming that includes movement and intensity to help customers achieve their fitness goals. Utilizing modern language and offering six core formats – Y6 101, Y6 Restore, Y6 Slow Flow, Y6 Hot, Y6 Power, and Y6 Sculpt Flow – YogaSix’s classes are meant to encompass every fitness level, whether the focus is on deep stretching, stress relief or breaking a sweat.
