Favorite Friday: SoulCycle

I want to share a little about a place that im currently obsessed with and is quite possibly my favorite place to go right now, and that is SoulCycle.

For those of you who don't know, SoulCycle is an indoor cycling facility that is taking New York by storm.  Started a few years go on the UWS, they now have locations in the UES, their flagship in TriBeca, the Hamptons, and a new location opening up on Union Square (that could be close!).

I started going about a month ago, and cant stop. The classes are 45 minutes long, and work every part of your body. Theres even a weights portion near the end of each me you'll be drenched by the end. The idea behind Soul is a workout that is effective yet relaxing at the same time, so the studio is light only by candle light during the class. The playlists are great and keep you moving for the duration of the class.

Rider at Soul are like a little community. Everyone is devoted to the class, and loves being there. I usually do a 5pm class on a Saturday, and see a lot of the same riders each Saturday. I was fortunate enough to spin right behind Kelly Ripa..awesome right?!

I recently discovered their Community thing..they're free! Its a great way to add an extra class to your schedule because you get a normally $32 class for NOTHING! They utilize these classes for new instructors, so its a great way to get to know them as they start at Soul. I will heading up to the UWS later today for one.

The studio is filled with woman carrying Goyard Bags....Lisa Birnbach would be proud. So if you ever get a chance to take a class at it! You will be obsessed like me. Who knows, you may be next to Chelsea Clinton or Anderson Cooper. All i have to say is, watch out Kelly, theres a new kid on the bike.

you can check them out for more details here Soul-Cycle

Anyone else have something they are currently obsessed with...please share!


  1. That sounds so fun. I always wondered what one of those classes would be like.

  2. you were that close to kelly ripa??? i love her. i'm sure you were too classy to ask for her autograph. i can almost guarantee i would have been the tacky person creeping on her with my camera phone and such.

  3. Ive tried Flywheel and really want to try SoulCycle too!
    Do you have to pre-reserve the community rides?
