SoulCycle – indoor cycling re-invented. One of a kind, rockstar instructors guide riders through an inspirational, meditative fitness experience that’s designed to benefit the body, mind and soul. Set in a dark candlelit room to high-energy music, riders move in unison as a pack to the beat and follow the signature choreography of the instructors. The experience is tribal. It’s primal. It’s fun.
“SoulCycle doesn’t just change bodies, it changes lives.”
SoulCycle was our first New York City fitness class and with all the hype and exposure around the brand, our expectations were pretty high. On arrival we were shown around the intimate, trendy gym and given a breakdown of what to expect. You are given cleats and a sweat towel and taken into a dark room jam packed with bikes that are almost shoulder-to-shoulder. At first it was a little claustrophobic but once the music started pumping and we broke into the routine it all added to the fun and energetic atmosphere.
The music is so infectious that it’s hard not to get caught up in the vibe. Our insanely hot instructor, Isabelle (who makes spinning look super sexy), got us climbing, sprinting, dancing and busting some moves to some pretty sick beats! The goal is to get your heart rate up (cardio), increase strength by using hand held weights and stabilizing your core giving you a full body workout! Basically, you’re jamming and bopping whilst spinning your heart out!
We were so impressed with how smoothly everything ran, from the super friendly staff to the reception service, making sure our first experience was all that SoulCycle’s rep lived up to be.
They have their own trendy clothing brand- so you can be kitted from head to toe in SoulCycle gear!
