New indoor cycling studio RIDE54 will bring a new fitness craze to the Fresno area when it opens this fall. 

Created by husband and wife duo Layne and Melissa Lev, the boutique fitness studio will offer a theater-style environment for high-energy cycling and strength training. The studio will open in The Village at River Park, directly adjacent to the planned Dave & Buster’s near Highway 41. 

According to a statement from the business, RIDE54 will employ professionally-trained instructors and use sophisticated sound and lighting systems to “create an inspiring and sensory environment designed to help people lose themselves in the workout.”

In addition to indoor cycling classes, the studio will also feature TRX suspension training and boot camp classes. The facility will also include private showers and spa-grade amenities in the locker rooms.

“With the launch of RIDE54, our goal is to create a unique space for people seeking a more engaging workout experience,” Layne Lev said. “Clients will have the ability to take advantage of both cardio and strength training classes under one luxurious roof, which makes RIDE54 unique. We think people are going to absolutely love it.”

The Levs are both natives of Fresno and chose to relocate to the area after working for several years in Silicon Valley. Both are graduates of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and Layne Lev is a partner in local digital design firm Hundred10. Melissa Lev holds a kinesiology degree, with a focus on commercial and corporate fitness.
