Westchase's Cycle Extreme in puts a fun spin on fitness

Twenty years ago, Deb Zinovoy was first introduced to spinning and she has been hooked ever since.

"I fell in love with it," Zinovoy said. "Spinning is pretty addicting."

After years of teaching spin classes around Tampa Bay, as well as doing personal training, Zinovoy is now the studio manager and trainer at Cycle Extreme.

Recently opened in Westchase, Cycle Extreme features forty, state-of-the-art spin bikes. During spin classes, lights are dimmed, there are special light effects, and two 70-inch televisions show virtual rides that go along with the music. Instructors create their own music play list and videos to get riders moving.

"We want it to be an experience," Zinovoy said. "We want to make it fun."

Zinovoy pointed out that spin classes are great for beginners as well as seasoned athletes.

"You work at your own pace," Zinovoy said.

Most classes last between 45 and 60 minutes, and a variety of classes are held throughout the week. There are plans for a class geared towards older kids to inspire them to get fit while having fun.

Cycle Extreme will hold its Grand Opening on Dec. 3. Keith Thompson from KTX Fitness in Atlanta will be the guest instructor for the 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. classes.

Cycle Extreme is located at 12125 W Linebaugh Avenue. For more information, call (813) 724-3070, or visit cycleextreme.net. Registration for classes can be done online, or using the App.

Walmart on Fletcher adds dining options

New dining options are coming to the Walmart located at 2701 E Fletcher Ave. A Checkers restaurant will open inside Wal-Mart in early December, making this the second Wal-Mart in Tampa Bay to have a Checkers inside.

Currently, the Walmart in Oldsmar is the only location that has a Checkers.

The new Checkers will also offer additional choices for diners.

"The one that's going on Fletcher Ave. is going to be in partnership with an Auntie Anne's pretzels," said Robert Bhagwandat, Director of Franchise Development for the Southeast.
