You can sign up for classes by downloading the THREE15 app from the app store, and creating an account. You can also use the MindBody app. You’ll select a bike when you arrive to the studio.
We recommend arriving 15 minutes before class starts. Let the front desk know that this is your first class, and someone will assist you with checking in, selecting a bike, and getting set up.
Whatever you’re comfortable sweating in. We provide the sweat towels, but you are also welcome to bring your own.
We have lockers available at the studio for you to store your personal items during class.
For Homewood: parking is available in front of the studio. Additional free parking is available until 7pm, in the Dawson Parking deck adjacent to the studio.
For Downtown: street parking is available in front of the studio. You’ll find additional street parking down adjacent streets, as well as paid parking lots nearby. Follow the pay-to-park instructions, or your car will be towed!
We are an official retailer for luluemon, but you’ll also find Ultracor, TIEM cycling shoes, and Botaniko skincare, hair products and candles.
We’ve got chilled water bottles available at the counter for purchase, or bring a bottle and fill up at our fountain. Stay hydrated!
THREE15 is our standard 55-minute class, featuring the THREE15 method, but we also have a variety of classes from cycle-only “RIDE,” to an express class, and beginner’s class. Each class description can be found under the “Classes” page.
Wear tennis shoes or cycling shoes. You have the option to use the pedal cages, or clip in.
We have 5 showers available at our Downtown location, and one available at our Homewood location. You’ll find Botaniko skincare and hair products as well as luxury amenities available for your use after class.
If the class you are wanting to take is full, add yourself to the waitlist. As clients cancel, and bikes become available, you will be notified via text or email when you make it into the class.
If you need to cancel your class, please do so at least 4 hours before class starts. If you cancel within 4 hours of class starting, you will be charged a $10 late fee (for clients with an Unlimited Class Pass or AutoPay) or one class will be removed from your account (if you have a Class Pass).
We currently do not provide child care.
Please be on time for class. If you are unable to make it to class within the warm up song, we will give your designated bike to a stand-by rider.
We want to encourage you to enter the studio distraction free, and leave your worries behind, including your phone, as you enter the class. If you are expecting an important call, or have a sick child and need to be on stand by, the front desk will be happy to hold your phone and notify you in class in case of an emergency.
If you need to leave the class early, no worries! We ask that you leave class right before the stretch portion of class. We will clean your equipment for you.
Cheer each other on in class! The more energy you give, the more you’ll receive. All the claps, cheers and exclamations are welcome in class.
Most importantly, encourage one another. Give your neighbor a high-five, or welcome a new client to class. Respect each other’s fitness journeys, and spread the THREE15 love!
ADDITIONAL FAQs AND INFO
WHAT IS BEAT-BASED CYCLING?
Beat-based cycling is focused on striking the pedal of the bike to each beat of the music. You’ll hear the instructor cue when your right or left foot should be hitting the beat.
HOW DO I SET UP MY BIKE?
We will assist you with setting up your bike, and walk you through proper form. We will also show you the hand positions that your instructor will cue during class, as well as how to use your resistance knob.
DO I NEED TO START WITH A BEGINNER’S CLASS?
Any class can be modified to accommodate any client. If you’re wanting an introduction to the THREE15 method, and more thorough instruction, at a slower pace, we recommend starting with a THREE15: BASIC class.
I WANT TO BRING A FRIEND TO CLASS. CAN WE GET IN TO CLASS TOGETHER?
Try to book your class at the same time, as classes fill up quickly. We recommend arriving to class 15 minutes before hand, so you can select a bike next to each other. If you’re an out-of-town guest, e-mail us before hand, and we will do our best to get you into a class together, and on bikes next to each other.
HOW DO I BECOME A THREE15 INSTRUCTOR?
We train and develop each instructor through the THREE15 Training Method over the course of multiple weeks. We recommend clients take 30 classes or more before inquiring about becoming an instructor. Open auditions may also be held. For more information, please contact Catherine, our head of Training and Development, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAN I TAKE CLASSES WHILE I’M PREGNANT?
Yes! Each class can be modified to accommodate our expecting clients.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A “CLASS PASS” AND “AUTOPAY OR UNLIMITED?”
Class Passes come with a certain amount of classes that can be used at any time. Unlimited/ AutoPay allows you to take an unlimited amount of classes in that designated time frame. AutoPay allows you to book classes through the duration of your contract.
DO CYCLING SHOES REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Yes. To enhance your workout, we highly recommend wearing TIEM cycling shoes (available for purchase at the studio.) Clipping into the bike pedals allows for a more fluid and efficient work out during the cycling portion of class.
