Saddle up at our new Ladera Ranch location June 6th!

Saddle up and join us at the grand opening of our Ladera Ranch location!


We are excited to announce the opening of our sixth studio this June!  The Ladera Ranch GritCycle studio, which is located in the Terrace Shops, will emulate the 5 other very popular, state-of-the-art GritCycle studios located throughout Orange County and Long Beach. This location will offer 45-minute indoor cycling classes for people of all ages and all fitness levels. Classes will ride to the rhythm of the music and incorporate choreographed moves along with traditional cycling techniques. For a sneak peek, follow us on Facebook or Instagram!


In terms of amenities, GritCycle can’t be beat. We provide towels for your ride, have digital lockers for your personal belongings, on-site bathrooms, one well-appointed shower (complete with toiletries and towels), a hairdryer, hair ties, earplugs, mints, and everything in between. We also offer complimentary shoes if it is your first class in the Saddle Room and after your first ride, the shoe rentals are $2.00. Our bikes are SPD and LOOK DELTA compatible only. We can also put baskets on the pedals, so it’s best to wear hard-soled athletic shoes in case we are out of your size. Remember to bring a water bottle (we have a purified water filling stations at the studio) and a can-do attitude! We also have water for sale, as well as refillable bottles, just in case you forget!


To celebrate the opening of this new location we will be offering an in-studio flash sale during Grand Opening weekend where you can purchase 3 classes for $45 – that’s over 30% in savings! This offer is only available at the Ladera Ranch location and can only be purchased in the studio. Limit 2 per customer.  If you would like to be notified of when the Ladera Ranch studio opens please submit your information below!








Located in the heart of Ladera Ranch at 1501 Corporate Drive #B-5, our 30-bike studio offers high-energy and endorphin-boosting classes 7 days a week! This studio is structured around the key fundamentals of happiness – physical fitness, connection, and giving – because at the end of the day, we just want Ladera Ranch to be happy. We believe in the power of teamwork, sweat equity, and good ol’ fashioned fun. At GritCycle, it truly is a “we-thing!”

Marissa brings the east coast flare into the Saddle Room & throws a 45-minute dance party at every class! Marissa fell in love with GritCycle after her first class and has been addicted to the sweat, community, and endorphins ever since. Don’t let her sweet smile fool you, she will make you sweat and push you to reach new limits even you didn’t think were possible, all while being your biggest supporter! Hand hops will almost always be on tap and you can expect to jam out to a mix of EDM, hip hop, & some dope remixes during her class! In her free time, Marissa likes to spend time with her husband Rickey & their sweet pup Chase.

Oh boy, what can we say about Steph?! She played collegiate soccer and attributes a lot of her athletic success to incredible coaching. At Grit, she is striving to offer that same great coaching and inspiration to her riders. She believes in riding as a team and the comradery that comes from building one another up. Steph’s class is a straight-up dance party! She is focused on cultivating the best beats she can find and wants her riders to have a blast earning those endorphins. When she’s not rockin’ the Saddle Room, you can find her sipping on a strong coffee or spending time with friends and cute, long-haired dachshund named Lady.

Sydney was born and raised in Laguna Niguel, California. She is a fun-loving, energetic, and kindhearted person who enjoys the little things in life. A few of fun facts about Sydney are that she hiked Mt. Whitney in one day, she can do a back flip, and her passion in life is helping individuals with special needs. Determination and hard-work are nothing new to this former soccer and track & field collegiate athlete. Once those two careers ended, Sydney had a hard time finding a workout routine that she enjoyed…until she found GritCycle and fell absolutely in love. Her outgoing and high-spirited attitude provides a care-free space for her riders to let loose and have fun. She wants her riders to walk away from class feeling refreshed and ready to tackle whatever comes next. Her favorite Saddle Room moves are The Dip and Hand Hops. Sydney’s playlists are reflective of her personality, which varies from electronic/house music to rap and classic rock.
