Welcome to VERVE Studios.
Del Mar’s premier indoor cycling studio and social wellness space for sweat, movement, and connection.
VERVE Studios is a place to find your people, sweat together, and change for the better — it’s much more than a workout. We value people and experiences. We think human connection is rad. We are passionate about our local San Diego community.
Our signature class, VERVECYCLE, is a vigorous 45- to 75-minute class combining rhythm-based choreography, high-intensity intervals, and upper body strength training. We’re led by athletic and dynamic instructors who sequence every class with powerful music to challenge you and transform the way you feel.
Our social wellness events and workshops are created to connect you with local brands and experts. We love to share local happenings, wellness content, and real stories from people in our community.
We do it all. And we do it with VERVE.

VERVE Studios is under construction! Our team has been rising before dawn (some days at 3am!) and working hard to build VERVE Studios from the ground up. We started with a vision for a remarkable boutique fitness space featuring custom bikes, state-of-the-art sound/lighting, and hand-selected, custom elements from local San Diego makers. From space planning to design to fabrication, every choice has our San Diego community in mind and at heart. We are so excited to gradually reveal more of the VERVE Studios vibe with you!
VERVE Studios is a place to step into who you are and own it.
We show up, we sweat, we feel good, and we live better.
We give 100% in the moment with zero expectation for anything outside of those 45 minutes on a bike. It’s sweat, it’s movement, it’s a concert of music and motivation.
We cannot wait to meet you in the VERVECYCLE room.
