Thank you so much for all of your suggestions on workouts and classes! I’m really excited to try some of them out over the next few weeks.
Also, tons of thanks for all the encouraging tweets and comments about SoulCycle.
I am obsessed.
I’ve read all the articles and (guilty) scoffed at all the die-hard fans on Twitter. But I totally drank the Kool-aid.
I was totally scared walking into the building. Even though it was beautiful and clean and very open, I was oh-so-intimidated. Thankfully, almost everyone in the group was a newbie. We all figured out the lockers together, figured out how to adjust the seat of the bike, and even figured out how to get our shoes clipped in.
One song in and all I could think about was why in the world anyone would pay for this torture. Oh, my legs were on fire pretty much immediately. But then we started doing this thing. I have no other way to describe it other than it was bumping. And I was…. hooked.
I get it.
I even dragged little miss Nicole Loher to the class with me. We traded for bikes in the way back! And they played her favorite Beyonce… so you know she liked it.
Because the group was from Local Levo NY and completely girls. The songs were 100% girl power. Loved every minute of it!
Some of my favorite Levo girls!
And everyone!! I personally loved how dark the room was because a) it was intimate and b) it totally puts you in the zone.
I’m now seriously reconsidering my budget for the rest of my life. The classes are not cheap… but I’m thinking that even doing it on Sunday afternoons would be worth it. Honestly, I felt so amazing afterwards! Both my body and my mind. It’s a mix between bootcamp and meditation. Eep!
Have you taken a spin class before?
