Spinning Instructor
Arshy Ahmed
  • Certified Level 2 Group Trainer

Arshy’s journey to fitness started three years ago at Studio X where Fitness and Strength became an obsession. Till one day she was faced with a new love, a new ride – Spin X. “There was something about that bike” she said, “I knew this was it, this is what I love doing.”

My attraction to spinning is simple – Freedom & Spirit. The ride no matter how intense allows my students to escape and be someone new every session; to push themselves harder and connect with a community that isn’t judgmental nor competitive. The only one you compete with is yourself.

Arshy believes that getting the music and routine synced is essential, and takes pride in her dynamic bike routines and distinctive Vibe. She says her weekly musical dedications keep the students guessing and keeps her on her toes or should one say on the pedal.

Arshy is currently studying to become a YMCA certified Exercise to Music (ETM) Trainer – UK

I hope as a trainer I can take you on through this distinctive journey, and together we can sweat it out and have some fun! – Arshy Ahmad

Spinning Instructor
Ayesha Sarfraz

Working out has been a part of my everyday routine for years. I love the energy and motivation, which comes with group classes and the fact that you’re always challenging yourself. With a good instructor you’re never complacent, and you’re always pushing yourself a little further, every time

After having two children very close apart and gaining a lot of weight both times, Ayesha challenged myself to be the healthiest and strongest she’d ever been. Her time spent at studio X allowed her to reach those goals in a short amount of time through consistency and dedication.

I’ve been working out at the studio for over a decade. Under the supervision and guidance of Jeannette and Fuzzy I’ve been trained in-group cycling class

Spinning in Ayeshas’ opinion is one of the best group cardio workouts out there

You feed off each other’s energies and YOU decide how far to push yourself- Music Is such a huge part of working out and spinning lets you get lost pedaling to great beats, everyone on their own journey, on the same count. I love the adrenaline and the euphoric rush you feel after every spin class- you feel like a million bucks! Every.single.time! That’s the best way to describe the high that stays with you after the ride!
