SOUL CYCLE CLASS REVIEWS
HELLO & HAPPY SATURDAY!!
With each new year I love to pursue new experiences..
Whether it be visiting a new place, checking out a new restaurant, or even taking on a new form of exercise.. wink wink
ENTER 2014, MY FIRST SOUL CYCLE EXPERIENCE
I had seen Soul Cycle studios popping up here and there throughout the city over the years, but as a HUGE yoga person I just never got around to seeing what all the hype was about.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of checking out the Tribeca Soul Cycle and was really impressed by the quality of teachers, the diversity of their techniques, the apparel and even the staff!
After just 3 classes, .. I was HOOKED.
If you’re looking to change up your vanilla work out routine, I highly recommend checking out a spin class at your local Soul Cycle!!

Take your journey
At SoulCycle we believe that fitness can be joyful. We climb, we jog, we sprint, we dance, we set our intention, and we break through boundaries. The best part? We do it together, as a community.
Change your body
SoulCycle is indoor cycling re-invented. Forty-five minutes is all it takes to transform the way you look and feel. Get ready for fat-burning cardio, a full-body workout (we use hand weights!), and choreography to work your core.
Find your soul
SoulCycle doesn’t just change bodies, it changes lives. With inspirational instructors, candlelight, epic spaces, and rocking music, riders can let loose, clear their heads and empower themselves with strength that lasts beyond the studio walls.
CREATORS OF SOUL CYCLE
SoulCycle was founded on the belief
that fitness could be inspiring.
With a motivational workout, a beautiful environment and outstanding customer service, each 45-minute class can be a transformative experience. SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice met in New York City and were determined to find an alternative to the fitness routines that felt like work. Combining inspirational coaching with high-energy music, the pair designed a workout that benefits the mind and body. SoulCycle trains world-class instructors to teach the SoulCycle method which engages and empowers riders in a way that leaves them mentally and physically stronger than when they arrived. Now, SoulCycle is leading the fitness revolution with people everywhere demanding the Soul experience.
Since 2006, when Julie and Elizabeth opened their first studio on the Upper West Side, SoulCycle has opened 25 locations nationwide, with plans to open 50-60 studios worldwide by 2015. Riders of all ages have responded to the SoulCycle cardio party (SC’s youngest rider is 12-years-old, their oldest is 78-years-old) with approximately 20,000 people riding at SoulCycle every week. In 2007, SoulCycle launched a robust retail line, today a new retail collection is released every month. In 2012, the company unveiled their very own SoulCycle Bike, an indoor cycle designed specifically for the SoulCycle ride. Julie and Elizabeth are humbled by the response to SOUL and are working hard to bring the party to the people.
SoulCycle isn’t just in the business of changing bodies; it’s in the business of changing lives.
LOOKING BACK THIS PICTURE MAKES ME LAUGH, BECAUSE AFTER SPINNING FOR 45 MINUTES, WE LOOKED MUCH DIFFERENT LOL
(TIRED, EXHAUSTED, SWEATY, OUT OF BREATH, .. BUT FELT LIKE WE JUST HAD THE BEST WORK OUT!!)
BE SURE TO EAT A LIGHT SNACK BEFORE CLASS AND NEVER FORGET YOUR WATER..
YOU’LL BE AMAZED AT THE AMOUNT OF WATER YOU’LL NEED WHILE TRYING TO SURVIVE A SOUL CYCLE CLASS LOL
YOU CAN REGISTER FOR A SPECIFIC BIKE IN ADVANCE ONLINE SO YOU CAN GET THE BEST SEAT FOR YOUR WORKOUT!!
I WOULD RECOMMEND REGISTERING EARLY AND ARRIVING EARLY FOR CLASS
THE DOWNSIDE TO WAITING FOR YOUR CLASS IS THE LIMITED SPACE TO DO SO.. ONE CLASS COMES OUT, ANOTHER COMES IN, AND ITS KIND OF HECTIC..
THE STAFF IS VERY HELPFUL WITH BIKE SET UP WHICH WAS AWESOME!
TRUST ME, MY FIRST TIME GETTING MY SHOES TO CLICK INTO THE PEDDLES..
TOOK FOREVER LOL
SOUL CYCLE OFFERS ALL YOUR SPINNING NEEDS
(WATER, TOWELS, HAIR TIES, SHOES, CLOTHES, AND EVEN GUM)
(MY FAVE INSTRUCTOR)
AFTER 6 DAYS OF CLEANSING, 3 DAYS OF SPINNING, IT WAS TIME TO ENJOY THE WEEKEND AND ENJOY SOME VEGAN EATS.. LOL
PROS AND CONS OF SPINNING
GREAT WORKOUT IN JUST 45 MINUTES
CAN BE DONE AT HOME
RELAXING IN THE DARK AND FEEL MOTIVATED MORE IN A CLASS
GIVES YOU AN ALL OVER WORKOUT (IF YOU’RE IN A SOUL CYCLE CLASS)
YOUR TUSH CAN GET SORE
YOU MAY BURN MORE CALORIES RUNNING SINCE YOU ARE SUPPORTED BY THE BIKE
DOESN’T OFFER THE SAME BONE BUILDING BENEFITS LIKE HIGH IMPACT RUNNING
WORKS MORE YOUR LOWER HALF OF YOUR BODY (UNLESS YOU’RE IN A SOUL CYCLE CLASS)
CAN SEEM MONOTONOUS (UNLES YOU’RE IN A SOUL CYCLE CLASS)
IF YOU SPIN ALL THE TIME YOU CAN HIT A PLATEAU
