Dilan produced a well-balanced class – sprints, hills, and tap backs combined with an athletic Torq ranging from 27-40. As we sprinted and climbed, we never lost sight of our form, since we were consistently reminded to engage our core and “push, pull” our legs. Dilan’s down-to-earth personality coupled with her upbeat demeanor inspired us to crush it for a full 45 minutes. She also pulled together an epic playlist consisting of electronic dance music and hip hop – a perfect pick me up for Saturday afternoon!



We kicked off class in the saddle hitting 90+ RPM and reaching 30 Torq shortly thereafter. Dilan led us through an ab-specific exercise called “around the world” – moving between 2nd, 3rd, and the saddle, while engaging our core and focusing on riding without bouncing (note: vastly different from and not to be confused with SoulCycle’s version of around the world, which incorporates pushups and some abs). Her ride was endurance-based with a ton of 30, 60, 90 second sprints. She crushed it, and so did we. Done and done.


Dilan has been a FlyWheel instructor for less than a year, which is hard to believe given her confidence and strong presence on the stage. She went the extra mile to make first timers feel comfortable, saddling up next to them prior to the start of class to show them the drill – no guessing in her class! Whether you’re new to FlyWheel or a frequent rider, you must ride with Dilan. She always let us know where we needed to be, and we executed and finished the ride drenched in sweat! Dilan has an innately motivational style; you won’t experience overkill.


The space has a simple layout, but the studio is clean and airy, and is centrally located to many of the NYC subway lines. There are individual, gender neutral showers and bathrooms, but no men’s or women’s locker rooms, so if you’re into doing your hair/makeup in peace, you may want to consider showering at home. Check out the apparel and grab some fresh fruit!
