To The Handle Bar and Turnstyle communities,

I hope this message finds you well, enjoying the holiday season and feeling hopeful and ready for a fresh start on 2023!

As you have interpreted from our subject line, this message contains some exciting, and momentous news that impacts you – our loyal rider base. After what feels like years of consideration and planning, two former competitors – The Handle Bar and Turnstyle – are joining forces. We’re taking the best aspects of our products, pricing, and operations and stacking the deck to fortify our organization from the inside out. 

This combined community has served more than two and a half million rides over the last 10 years across 10+ unique studios and offsite locations.

These individuals have frequented our studios, and moved with us across Boston and Cambridge. One class at a time we’ve built stronger bodies, more confident spirits, released inhibitions and opened the hearts of our community. We’ve inspired self betterment, and we’ve been home to the birth of so.many. beautiful relationships – built upon health, wellness, and music –  all fused within our walls. 

The pandemic represents an inflection point in the way that we think about our minds, our bodies, our future.  It has changed the way we love, listen, and heal. In a shifting landscape bound with uncertainty… The Handle Bar and Turnstyle leadership decided to lean in;  so we could better serve you.

This business union represents an increase in potential. Two teams – racing in a challenging post pandemic fitness landscape – are now working together. Our ability to leverage resources and direct our energy more meaningfully will be evident in everything we do. 

We are excited to continue the products you know and love – but we’ve listened to our community.. and we’re thrilled to evolve alongside you. 

Watch the vid, get hyped, and click here for answers to all of your questions. 

With gratitude and dedication, 

Jess Fracalossi
