Why BYKlyn? BYKLyn is real:

-You’re going to be pleasantly greeted by a real person, not cheerfully assaulted by a fake happy person.

-You can wear a $300 outfit or the Kmart special, nobody cares.

-You will be treated with respect and dignity regardless of your experience and fitness level.

-You don't need to be cool, or try to be cool at BYKLyn. You just need to work hard and enjoy the tunes.


What’s your class really like: My classes are designed in a way that put you in charge of the intensity level. Depending on how you are feeling that day, you can easily customize your experience to be moderately challenging, difficult, or extremely challenging.


What’s your music vibe: A person once described my playlists as "Shuffle that's on shuffle." A single playlist can include Soulja Boy, Simon & Garfunkel, Rihanna, and something from a Broadway show. If you have very diverse musical taste, we will vibe well.


Life beyond the BYKbox: I'm a local, having lived in Park Slope since 2009. I also teach yoga and meditation. You'll find me in the park a lot with my Boston Terrier, Nelson. Being a dad to my 4 year old daughter keeps me quite busy (by always trying to keep her busy).

 

Anything else you want us to know:
In the early 2000s I appeared on the reality dating show Change Of Heart with a fake girlfriend. Before you ask, the only tape in existence has been lost.

Eric Lawrence instructs the following:
  • BYK60
  • The 60 Minute endurance ride in our BYKbox to AMAZING music fitting the ride. Hills, intervals, sprints and serious sweat…it’s all there and more. You might be scared…but don’t be. Everyone loves the extra push! 

  • Smashing Pumpkins/ 90’ Grunge - BYK60
  • Our in-house DJ, Eric is bringing it this Halloween. Of course, it's Smashing Pumpkins, and beyond that there’s Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, and more. And don’t even think about wearing a costume.
