Head over to 1707 W. Gray St. in Montrose and you'll find Vortex, a new cycling class and boxing spot.

This upscale fitness spot offers two concepts: ride (for the spin crowd) and rip (for aspiring pugilists). Cycling classes include a lot of time off the saddle doing pushups and burpees. When riders are seated on the bike, they ride with hand weights. The 45-minute boxing workout emphasizes plyometrics, footwork and cardio.

It's proving popular so far, with a 4.5-star rating out of three Yelp reviews.
