About Us

When barre classes didn't offer enough cardio and indoor cycling classes felt too abrasive, StarCycle Co-Founder, Dionne Del Carlo, developed a 45-minute cardio ride to fill a void in her fitness regime. Other cardio-heavy classes were overwhelmed with stats and tracking—and the last thing she wanted to do was compete with other clients on a leaderboard. Nothing felt like the right fit, so she decided to create something that did.

In 2013, StarCycle was developed as a new kind of indoor cycling class that was inclusive, badass, and mindful. Each studio offers childcare, which was a must for Dionne. And the space had to inspire riders to drop their mental baggage the minute they walked through the door. In 2015, the company began franchising and today, there are 10 units in operation and counting.

I left corporate America and opened a StarCycle studio because I wanted a better lifestyle — and I am so happy I did! But what surprised me was how much of an impact I’ve made to my community. We hear almost daily how StarCycle has changed peoples lives, and not just because of the weight loss, but more because of the mental break (no technology) and confidence that comes from our class. That deeper ‘why’ has blown me away and allowed me to truly take my passion and turn it into a successful career.” — Eryn Washington, StarCycle Vancouver Co-Owner
