Get a great workout and help kids in need, all at one time

EXTON, Pa. (WPVI) -- It's the season for giving, and the season for eating.

So a new spinning studio in Exton, Chester County, has teamed up with a local charity.

And it couldn't come at a better time.

Right after Thanksgiving and before the holiday parties start, you can get a great workout while also helping kids in the need.

The lights are dim, the mussic is loud inside Cycle Bar, a new spinning studio in Exton, Pennsylvania.

"All right up top," shouted the instructor as the class began.

The class I tried is a prelude to a charity ride on December 3rd.

The studio is hosting a special class, with the proceeds benefitting the Believe and Achieve Foundation, a local non-profit that supports low-income kids.

Kate Magee is the executive director.

Her brother Matt Ryan is also involved.

He plays for the Atlanta Falcons, but his roots are in the Philadelphia area.

Magee says a charity ride at Cycle Bar is the perfect mix of doing something good for yourself and for others.

"Cycle bar has such a great community vibe going on so what a great way to come out and do something healthy for a great cause," says Magee.

Classes are about 50 minutes of cycling, getting your heart pumping and muscles burning.

But many say it feels more like a party than a workout.

"It's like you're dancing on a bike, you totally feel like all your cares, throw it out the window," she adds/

"Push, push," says the instructor, urging everyone one.

And with different moves, you'll hit all the major muscle groups.

"So you're doing anything from pushups to crunches and squats I say on the bike so it's a total body workout," she says.

It's also a fun and friendly crowd, riding next week with a common goal.

"I really love that we give back to the kids, it's about community."

The special ride is December 3rd.

A $25 donation gets you a bike in the class.

All proceeds go to the Believe and Achieve Foundation.
