OUR STORY

Dana & Rory are proof that friendship really can last forever. The dynamic duo first met 25 years ago and they’ve been supporting and pushing each other ever since. Dana spent many years taking Rory’s fitness classes as he found celebrity in the Toronto fitness community. Dana was always inspired by Rory’s passion and zest for life, which only strengthened her own dreams of spreading positivity.

Years later, Dana and Rory found themselves working at the same fitness facility. Their compatibility was electric, and their potential impossible to deny. They partnered together and opened Rocket Cycle in 2014, and they have spent five beautiful years encouraging strength, love and happiness in the hearts of riders from all over!

Rocket Cycle was built out of love and has a pulse unlike any other; an energy that inspires and sticks with you long after you leave the studio. Dana and Rory are dedicated to each and every rider’s fitness journey, ensuring a positive experience for all. Located in the heart of Toronto, Rocket Cycle always feels like home. Join the family, ride with us and make it your happy place!

Howard Rocket is an absolute inspiration! Years ago, Howard suffered a massive stroke from a head injury during a game of pick-up football. He was left completely paralyzed on his left side. Despite the odds, Howard fought for his life and as a result became the heart and soul of Rocket Cycle.

His optimism, charm, will and strength was a force of nature, inspiring Dana never to give up. It was his attitude towards life that ultimately opened the doors to Rocket Cycle and built an incredible, warm, beautiful community.

Now, you can find Howard at the studio 6 days a week, on a special recumbent bike where he rides alongside Dana as she takes the world by storm. Howard is devoted to living life to the full, and sharing his message of hope and determination. Ride with us and experience the magic yourself!

Etiquette

Cellphones
Our classes are a chance to disconnect from the outside world for 50 minutes. For that reason, we ask that you leave your cellphones and other electronics in your locker or at the front desk. If you’re expecting an important call, let one of our front desk staff know and we’ll come get you if your phone rings!

Cross-Talk
We love socializing before and after class, but talking to your neighbours during class can be distracting to other riders. That being said, we love when you bring your energy to class, so sing and cheer your heart out all class long!

Smart Watch Users
If you ride with a Smart Watch please make sure it is set to theatre mode so it does not to illuminate during class.

Policies

Late Arrivals
We understand that life gets crazy and late arrivals happen. If you arrive within 10 minutes after class starts, one of our team members will happily help you to your bike! However, safety and respect are top priority at Rocket Cycle so we only allow people to enter the room up to 10 minutes after class starts. After that time, all late arrivals will be late cancelled.

Last Minute Bookings
If you book a bike online 5-10 minutes before class starts, we cannot guarantee that the bike you booked will still be available as we start allotting bikes to walk-in riders at this time. But we will try our absolute best to get you on a bike as soon as you walk in!

Late Cancellations
Our classes book up fast and often days ahead of time! If you are signed up for a class that you can no longer commit to, you must cancel your booking 12 hours prior to class in order for your class credit to be returned to your account. Any booking cancelled after the 12 hour window will be considered a late cancel unless it’s a medical emergency and it’s accompanied by a doctors note.

Waitlist
Our busiest classes often fill up days in advance, but if you’re counting on getting into a class that’s already full, you can always add yourself to our waitlist. The waitlist will automatically add riders into the class as bikes open up throughout the week, and if you’re added to the class you will receive a text and/or email to confirm your spot. However, the waitlist will lock 12 hours prior to the start of class, so if you haven’t gotten in by that time, feel free to give us a call at the studio or check online to see if a bike opens up before the class. Otherwise, stop by in person as a walk-in—we always do our best to get every rider a bike!

Walk-Ins
While we can’t always guarantee a spot, especially during our busiest classes, we always encourage anyone who hasn’t booked a bike to come into the studio as a walk-in. The walk-in list operates on a first come, first serve basis; 5-10 minutes before class starts, bikes will be reallocated to walk-ins in order of arrival and one of our team members will assist you to your bike. Spin away!

Class and Package Purchases
We offer a variety of packages available for purchase online, in the studio, or over the phone with our front desk staff. Each package comes with an expiration date, so please take your schedule and how often you ride into consideration when purchasing as classes and packages are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Sign In
When you arrive, one of our team members will greet you and sign you in. It’s important to sign in under your own name, for safety purposes as per our policy. Besides, we always make an effort to get to know you – it starts with knowing your name!

Student Packages
Rocket Cycle is home to riders of all ages! For students, we offer packages that are available for purchase in person only for students 21 and under with valid student identification. Stay in school, kids!

Instructor Changes
While we understand that everyone has their favourite instructor, Rocket Cycle reserves the right to change instructors at its discretion. Don’t worry though—all of our instructors will have you sweating in no time!
