WE ARE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF SPIN CLASSES
It all started with three born-and-raised Albertans who saw an opportunity to offer an innovative, dynamic form of group exercise that shakes up what indoor cycling can be. Along with a team of Motivators, YYC Cycle brings Calgary a new fitness and lifestyle culture that thrives in and out of the studio. What’s so great about that? YYC Cycle caters your workout to your mind and body, leaving you feeling energized and rejuvenated after every single class. Our daily classes, taught by our inspirational MOTIVATORS, will allow you to train through the beat of the music in just 50 minutes (but it feels like an immersive getaway). Our top-of-the line bikes will not only promote cardiovascular health, but strengthen and tone muscles in your legs, core, and upper body while you continue your own personal journey in becoming…

4 positions available
Do you love YYC Cycle and would like to work with some of the best people around?
Well, you’re in luck! We have Crew (energy exchange) positions at all three of our studios.
So what does being Crew look like?
We ask that our Crew commit to at least one 4 hour shift per week doing a variety of tasks such as cleaning, chatting with the Bikergang and helping out at the front desk when necessary. For every 4 hour shift, you will receive 2 spin classes onto your account. You are always allowed to pick up more shifts as well.
What would I be doing during my shifts?
As Crew, your main priority is, of course, taking care of the Bikergang. Helping get them set up on bikes, studio tours and giving that warm welcome that makes us unique. Other duties involve doing laundry, vacuuming, cleaning the showers, cleaning the washrooms, and other ‘general cleaning’ duties. It’s a fun atmosphere and definitely a social one at that. Our Crew truly are our family!
What are the expectations of being Crew for YYC Cycle?
We expect that upon application you have a love for Spin! We want to be sure that you love our studio and our vibe before you make a commitment to us, and we make a commitment to you! We ask that all our Crew commit to a minimum six-month period working at least one 4-hour shift/week.
Having a Crew shift should be treated as a regular paying job; Crew are expected to show up on time each week for their shift. If you can’t come in for some reason (illness, out of town) then it’s your responsibility to have it covered and to let your Manager know. Crew are always willing to swap and help you out when you’re in a bind.
Sound fun? Let’s get that application in!
