Where Cardio Meets Culture – Mcycle Opens in Downtown Salt Lake City
Mcycle is a new boutique cycling studio now open at 355 West 400 South in Salt Lake City. The 4,300 square-foot studio features a 50-bike workout experience to a clientele who want a challenging, yet enjoyable workout, convenience and a sense of community. Classes are movement heavy, beat-specific, and suitable for all fitness levels. The company’s $700,000 investment brings 15 new jobs to the City.
Mcycle is co-founded by Megan Tyrrell and Richmond Tyrrell (both originally from Utah) who worked in the boutique cycling community in Southern California. They recognized that Salt Lake City is a relatively untapped market for boutique fitness, particularly that of the booming indoor cycling variety. Their studio excels with its elite instructors and 5-star customer service and upscale amenities.
Megan Tyrrell is the CEO and has been a champion for women-led businesses. “It’s not only important to emphasize and grow the fitness culture in Salt Lake City but also to lead by example for other women to pursue their goals of owning a business,” says Megan Tyrell.
As one of the most bike-friendly cities in the country, Salt Lake City is known for its active demographic and healthy lifestyles. It’s also prone to weather that can change frequently. MCycle fills that need for convenience and community — a one-stop health spot offering 45 minute high-intensity indoor cycling classes.
Being on 400 South, the studio is the first you see when entering/exiting the City from I-15 – a convenient location for downtown commuters. “It is exciting to see development of this area,” says Richmond Tyrrell, “We are thrilled to be part of the growing and supportive Pioneer Park business community.”
The Tyrells worked with George Ott, Building Services & Economic Development Liaison who was a great help in the permitting process. Says Richmond “Starting a new business can be a struggle to get permits, getting water, sewer, gas, and electric. We have made great friends at the city and liked working with everyone there.”
Ben Kolendar, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development for Salt Lake City, says, “We’re excited to see another indoor cycling boutique downtown. It allows for healthy competition and more innovation overall. We are happy to welcome MCycle to Salt Lake City.”
MCycle is the ultimate, full-body indoor cycling workout. Cyclers ride to the beat of the music in a high energy, inspirational environment with the best fitness talents guiding the class. With the goal of combining cardio and culture, riders sweat out life’s challenges in unison, as a community. The first studio has opened in Salt Lake City, with additional plans to open several locations within the next 6 years, throughout the Mountain West region.
