Spin Society expands to North Vancouver
Spin Society has taken group fitness to the next level with rides focused on empowerment and transformation. Their success hasn’t gone unnoticed having recently been awarded one of the best Spin Classes in Westender’s Best of City 2017. After a successful couple of years, they launched their second location in North Vancouver.
We had the opportunity to chat with the studio’s founder Dominik Desbois to learn more about Spin Society and their latest “This Is Our Playground” video campaign.
Tell us about your first spin experience, how did you get into it initially?
As the story often goes, just one ride and I was hooked. My wife Negar, and Spin Society co-founder has been a “spin addict” for years and when she finally convinced me to hop on the bike next to her, I was blown away. When properly executed, a spin class can make you feel the full spectrum of emotions. You laugh, you cry, you dig deep and you somehow never want it to end. My first spin experience left me completely spent, but on an incredible emotional high. It was a performance for the ages and I couldn’t quite make sense of what had just happened but in a good way.
What inspired you to start Spin Society?
Quite simply, I felt I could somehow do it better than what was being delivered in Vancouver. At the time, I was in a career slump and uncertain with how satisfied I’d be in the long term if I maintained the status quo. So, after that first spin experience, I started doing research on the “spin” movement and put together a vision for what I’d love to feel at a spin studio. The rest is part luck, part hard work. I have the most amazing team anyone could ever wish for. They keep me on my toes and strive for perfection in ways I’ve rarely seen. I owe it all to them.
