Why Virtuous Cycle?
Everyone can describe a vicious cycle. Some can articulate it down to the very last detail. Whether the vicious cycle occurs in their relationships, career, health, personal satisfaction or all areas simultaneously. With the same clarity, can You describe Your life in a Virtuous Cycle?
Virtuous Cycle or V CYCLE was born from the bold notion that you can create changes that will positively impact your life. You can shift the momentum deliberately and consciously.
V Cycle is a play on words. We are indoor cycling and barre enthusiasts. We are also individuals focused on finding and creating our own virtuous cycle. But pay attention. When you experience the shift You have created, you’ll notice that those around you benefit as well. Imagine the impact a community of people can create by striving individually and collectively for their own Virtuous Cycle.
Indoor cycling is a high intensity-low impact exercise. While the aim is to improve your cardio endurance by varying resistance, cadence and position, you have the opportunity to strengthen your mental toughness - to push your emotional limits. Deliberately going outside our comfort zone reinforces that while a situation may feel difficult or hard, it's only temporary. Prepare yourself to get comfortable being uncomfortable! Physical exertion provides the clarity of our choices and how they may keep us in a vicious cycle. That same clarity points you in the direction of your Virtuous Cycle. It's true that you ride as you live.
V Cycle is fun. V Cycle will kick your butt. You’ll sweat more than you thought possible. We want you to Get In your Virtuous Cycle.

Casey Colosky grew up in Southwest Louisiana and after graduating from LSU in 1995, moved to Northern Virginia.
She was always physically active, but was unexpectantly derailed with surgery to repair her ACL. She happened upon indoor cycling and quickly realized it was the most challenging activity she had ever experienced. It’s common for those new to indoor cycling to feel as though they’re “going to die” their first few classes. Casey was no exception. She had overly protected her knee by avoiding activities that may reinjure it, so her heart rate was rarely high. With indoor cycling, she was free of her fear of injury and could experience a sustained, high heart rate for the better part of an hour. As she became physically stronger, she noticed the emotional and mental elements of indoor cycling. It was then that she became hooked.
As the owner of V Cycle, her goal is to inspire and motivate others to overcome life’s obstacles (whether it be physical, emotional, or mental) and find inner peace and strength through indoor cycling, barre and fusion classes. Casey is Spinning certified through Madd Dog Athletics and Primary Group Exercise Certified through AFAA.
We're always looking for awe-inspiring instructors!
