New Fort Mill cycle studio coming in the spring

— In April, the Scrivens plan to take Fort Mill for a ride.

Leonard Scriven and Sarah Knill-Scriven plan to open Cycle Cross Fitness this spring at 1741 Gold Hill Road. The business is near the Hwy. 160 and Gold Hill intersection, in the Southlake building. Cycle Cross Fitness will be an indoor cycling studio with 30 bikes and a conditioning room, on-site child care, personal training, nutrition counseling, wellness coaching and support groups.

“Every class can be guaranteed to take each ride from ‘just exercise’ to an endorphin-surged, challenging workout driven by a heart-pounding playlist,” Knill-Scriven said.

The HERO running club is affiliated with the new location. Members will meet at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings to train for programs and races.

“The mission of HERO is to unite runners at every level of ability and interest, promote healthy living, friendship, camaraderie, and support our community and charitable causes,” Knill-Scriven said.

The owners are trainers who have lost more than 180 pounds combined. They operate a “For the Fit in Me” challenge to help others lose weight and get in top shape.

“The purpose of this challenge is to motivate participants to take charge of their health and nurture positive fitness goals in a supportive environment,” Leonard Scriven said.

The Fort Mill residents of two years have been in the Charlotte area for about a decade. They’ve taught classes in Charlotte and elsewhere. Leonard Scriven is certain the new business is a passion for both, but he also believes it’s something needed in Fort Mill.

“It was really just based on the need,” he said of opening something new. “It’s been a dream of mine for a while.”

Cycle Cross Fitness will be open seven days a week and will have early morning classes. Pre-opening deals on individual and sets of classes, or monthly membership. The Scrivens plan to open other Cycle Cross locations. For more information, visit
