I have been hearing about Soul Cycle for MONTHS!! It feels like every celebrity and blogger has been attending these fast paced spin classes. I was curious to try it out, but always very intimidated. It wasn’t until a friend of mine invited me to join her in on a class that my eyes were opened to the amazing addiction that IS Soul Cycle.
Yes, it’s HARD!!! Very hard. It’s doable, but very challenging. It works every part of your body, and leaves you feeling exhausted, yet strong and capable. With every class I can feel myself becoming stronger.
What I love most about it, is that it’s 45 min of me giving it my all. I forget about everything else that weighs on my mind during the day, and I focus on becoming stronger. The lights are low, music blasting, the room smells of light eucalyptus, and everyone is on this ride together. The instructor shouts inspiration like “Who you are in here will define who you are out there” , “Every setback is a setup for a comeback.” It’s very inspiring, and encourages you to push past the temporary pain. It’s unlike any workout I’ve ever done. It’s an adrenaline rush that gets you excited to go back for the next class.
Sure, I’m not the star of the class. It’s gonna take me a while to get stronger, but I must admit, I AM a Soul Cycle convert.
They sell Lululemon workout gear with their signature branding on it. I love IT! It’s the most comfortable workout gear and super cute!
They have classes in New York, LA, and I believe Chicago.
