In the Spotlight: Velocity by Mallory Nieman

Fancy trying something different to really get you moving? Why not cycle your way to better health this year! Indoor cycling has become the latest fitness trend to boost people’s health and sculpt their way to better versions of themselves. Enter Velocity…

So what is Velocity all about?  Velocity is Zurich’s first dedicated Indoor Cycling studio. Delivering a whole new fitness concept with the latest technology in Indoor Cycling, Velocity has become a fitness hub of outstanding customer service, top instructors, and varied class concepts, all within an exceptional space. They believe fitness leads to an overall happier and healthier life and that fitness positively promotes both physical and mental change.

The studio was built from scratch to ensure the space is worthy of the exceptional workouts, customers and instructors. The Indoor Cycling room is a dark setting with a state of the art sound system, club atmosphere lighting, and Veloboard (Leader Board) technology for the more competitive class types. In addition, they provide all the amenities (towels, shoes, shampoo, etc.) so that customers only sweat the workout.
Founded by Mallory Nieman, she began cycling in 2011 having signed up for the Zurich Ironman in 2012. Utilizing Indoor Cycling training during her workweeks, she improved her bike time by 1 hour at her next 2015 Ironman in Klagenfurt, Austria. Despite her improvement, she quickly grew frustrated by the lackluster gym offering in comparison to the classes in New York and London, and decided to open Zurich’s first Indoor Cycling studio herself. She is a believer, not only in Indoor Cycling, but also in all the good things that being part of a dedicated fitness studio can bring to people.
