Oh man, doesn’t that title take you back to 2004? Memories…
ANYWAY! I’m not here to discuss The Killers. I’m here to talk SoulCycle. I was recently invited to a blogger event at SoulCycle by my incredibly talented and beautiful friend Erin (BTW if you want amazing DIY ideas, top-notch fashion tips and delicious recipes, you should be following her here: Currently Coveting). I’ve previously not been a huge fan of spin classes. I love riding my bike, but I’ve struggled to enjoy class.
But this time, class was a blast! Abby, our fearless instructor, had a killer playlist. It was a 45-minute dance party that left my body feeling detoxed and my legs on fire!
If you haven’t been to SoulCycle yet, read a bit more about what makes them different from your average spin studio. Here’s what I enjoyed most:
- Jams: I LOVE music. All kinds. Country, pop, rap, alternative rock. You name it. I love it. This class featured some of my pop faves: Beyoncé, Bieber, Gaga.
- Dark + Hot: The studio is dark, lit only by candles which gives my competitive side a chance to relax and focus on myself, as opposed to all the riders around me. It’s also pretty warm in there and only get’s steamier as the class goes on. Mmmmm sweat it out!
- DBs: I have scrawny little arms. So bringing dumbbells and a short arm session to the end of class is amazing. I didn’t just rock my legs and core, I felt that burn in my arms as well.
So if you haven’t yet, find a SoulCycle near you and give it a spin!
PS – I’ve been doing brand ambassador work for a line of compression apparel called Second Skin (more to come on the gear at another time). The tights were PERFECT for the sweaty sweaty class.
