“The expansion to Long Beach was a natural decision for us,” Marisa Wayne, co-founder of GritCycle, said in a statement. “We love that the center is so focused on more local, eclectic brands and knew it’d be a great fit for GritCycle. We’re excited to join a neighborhood focused on building a community of local business owners.”

Each month GritCycle hosts “Karma Rides”, donation-based classes organized to raise funds for a local charity. The business stated its excitement to partner with Long Beach charities in an effort to give back to the community. The entirety of the proceeds from “Karma Rides” are given to the charity of the month.

GritCycle offers specialized, high-intensity, full-body cycling classes at 45 minutes, during which clients follow choreography set to music, “taking them out of their fitness comfort zone and creating a community based on empowering each other.” GritCycle is currently seeking talented and philanthropic instructors for its Long Beach studio.
