Ignite Cycle, Pepper Place’s newest health and fitness tenant, officially opened its doors on March 12. Complete with a state-of-the-art cycling gym as well as a large, chic lobby where Owner and Founder Tiffany Martin hopes riders can build a sense of community and support, we wanted to take this opportunity to introduce riders to both the space and the coaches.
When we first met Tiffany in the Fall 2018 issue of The Place, she had a very particular vision for what Ignite Cycle would be: “A dark room, loud music, exercise bikes, and everybody moving together. It’s like being at a wedding where everybody starts dancing the YMCA, but a lot cooler.” Now that the rubber has met the road, that’s exactly what Ignite Cycle is, and that’s exactly what’s happening.
In addition to creating a place to work out, Martin also wanted to create a where riders can support one another so that working out feels like less of a chore and more of a social event. That’s why the large windowed, naturally lit, wide-open lobby is a key feature of Ignite’s culture.
