Yes! All classes are designed to accommodate all levels.

First time guests should arrive at the studio no later than 15 minutes before the scheduled class time. This allows our staff to get you checked in, tour the studio and get set up on your bike.

Bike set up is very important to your ride. Due to COVID-19, we are limiting contact of our studio team and guests. But don’t worry; we got you covered.

This will vary from person to person but a consistent cardio practice (5 days per week) is said to have long-term health benefits.

We understand life gets crazy and adjustments need to be made. You can freeze any of the auto-renewing memberships (8, 12 and unlimited). Please reach out to hello@forthepeoplehtx.com to let us know what you need!

Yes! Our best value membership is our unlimited package. This membership is billed one time every six months. To preserve the perks associated with this membership, capacity of this package is limited to 100 active memberships every six months. You will continue to auto-renew unless you cancel. Once we hit capacity, you can hop on the waitlist and we’ll notify you as soon as a spot becomes available.

Because we will be hosting classes at a limited capacity, we ask that cancellation of any class be made 5 hours before the scheduled class time. In the event you cancel within the 5 hour window, a $10 penalty and loss of a credit will be accessed for members. Class series holders will lose their credit. In the event of a no-call no-show, you will be charged a $15 fee.

The schedule is released every Sunday at 5:00 pm CST. Early access credits and ftp. original membership holders will be able to book at 12:00 pm CST.

We require our riders to be at least 14 years of age. If you are 14-17 years old, a parent or guardian will need to complete a minor waiver for you.

We ask that you store your phone outside of the cycle room to protect the environment for everyone in the space, including you! If you need someone to manage any emergency-related calls for you, our front desk staff will be happy to assist. Apple watch/fitness watches are welcome on silent/theatre mode.

I’ve been coming here for a about a month now. The classes are fantastic, instructors and staff are friendly, supportive, knowledgeable, and encouraging. I leave drenched in sweat and really satisfied. Hats off to those who do two classes in a row!! As a newbie I am super excited to watch myself grow and come back every week :-).

Hands down- best spin studio in Houston. The space is beautiful, the instructors are excellent, the classes are executed flawlessly & the community of riders is truly a family. I’ll never clip in anywhere else! If you’re looking for a new workout in the area, I 10/10 recommend trying for the people.

I don’t live in Houston, but heard about the great quality and style of the merchandise at ftp. I’ve ordered several items and have loved every one. I receive compliments every time I wear them and have given candles as gifts on multiple occasions—they’re always a hit. Love this brand and what they represent.

For The People is an amazing new spin studio owned by some of the best fitness gurus Houston has to offer. Everything is thoughtfully designed from the greeting (with covid temperature check and health declaration at the front door), to their super fun merch, incredible friendly team, and BEAUTIFUL studio with robust locker rooms. Each instructor has their specialty from Zach whose classes feel like a 45 minute dance party on the bike, to Tyler whose self deprecating humor and sweet comments throughout class make you believe you can do anything in your 45 minutes in the room, to Mel whose mix of tough love and humor pushes you to constantly push yourself farther. I also have been loving Morgan and Sydney's classes. FTP is also a LGBT, Black, and Women owned business and everyone is welcome and accepted for every little piece of who they are there. Finally, they are big believers in giving back to the community on donate $5 from every rider on the 5th of each month to a local charity. I cannot say enough great things about this place or these people! Highly HIGHLY recommend nabbing yourself a bike!

There's so much that's GREAT about this studio! The front desk, the cleanliness, the bathrooms, the instructors! Such good vibes from other riders, and clear cues. I really appreciated the space between the bikes and the mask requirements, too!

I love it here! So much more than spin class. Fellow gym rats who become friends who become family! for the people is all about community and comradery. You belong, I belong, we belong! And that's an amazing feeling. Oh yea, and if by chance you are just looking to sweat it out on the bike, that works too. Take Mel's class, she'll make you sweat, yell, beg for mercy ....and you'll love every minute of it! You want a karaoke party on the bike? Take Zach's class. I promise you won't want to miss it! Studio is clean and staff are always smiling and helpful. Hands down, best spin studio in Houston!
