Instructor Introductions: CH’IEN


Ch’ien has traveled and completed triathlons around the world, in his indoor cycling classes he goes beyond a great workout by incorporating training principles of endurance.  He  provides strength and interval work to improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels. His classes are ALWAYS fun and motivating. Ch’ien loves all genres of music so its a guarantee that you’ll be working out to the great beats that he’s found in his travels.


What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

I’m a FOB (Fresh Off the Boat) and just became a proud US citizen in 2012!  Born in Malaysia, I grew up in Hong Kong and attended British expat schools before coming to the States for University. That, or I was on MTV’s Fear.

What’s your favorite beer? (Or drink)

Pass on beer (unless it’s a really hot summer day!).  Gimme bourbon neat, vodka on the rocks, or sipping tequila (or all three?).

What is your favorite song?

For working out?  Or for lip-synching in drag?

What inspires you?

People who overcome adversity in any way 

What is in your refrigerator right now?

Sriracha, chilli oil, eggs, and ginger ale.

  1. Ch’ien was my spin instructor at Equinox and he will be greatly missed. I’ve attended many spin classes with different instructors and he is above and beyond all of them.

    His presence at Handle Bar will persuade me to buy classes at the studio for sure.

    • Great to hear that Lauren! He is a phenomenal instructor and a great addition to our team. I am going to add you to the mailing list which will give you access to a 30% off ‘friends and family’ pre-launch discount. The discount expires on June 1st.

      The discount codes for the 5, 10, and 20 class packs are the following:

      You will receive a reminder email just before the offer expires. Looking forward to meeting you!


  2. Woot Woot! Psyched for Ch’iens sweaty cycle profiles and a cycle studio in Southie. Can I request Ch’iens Yin-Yang profile in advance? 🙂
