I took my first class over 2 years ago. My parents and I had just gotten our apartment in NYC, and on a walk around the neighborhood I discovered a Soulcycle near by at E83rd. I figured anything good enough for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper was a must try.
I would like to say I enjoyed my first class, but I didn't enjoy it...I became obsessed. I was sweating like someone was pouring water over my head, and crying like a baby. There were disco balls, black lights, and lots of positive affirmations. I took as many classes as I could that week. And when I went to LA 2 weeks later for my UCLA Riordan Fellows interview (I even roped my lovely Miss AZ Brittney Bell in to going with me), I took a Soulcycle class to get my confidence up and nerves out.
Well you can imagine my elation when I heard Soul was coming to DC a year ago. Ever since my beloved studio came to town I've been the happiest girl in the world.
|My doctor's office was near the studio, so I used to stalk the construction site whenever I went to the endocrinologist|
|Garrett is my Soul spirit animal, and anyone that plays a Britney/Iggy mashup deserves a shoutout|
|What's not to love about Kathleen, she's killer and aspirational!|
I could go on for hours about how wonderful Soulcycle is, but you should try it yourself. And don't say I didn't warn you when class is over and you want to sign up right away, and buy every bit of merchandise they have.
Classes are expensive, but believe me when I say, I'm a cheapskate, and I think it's worth every penny.
Maybe if you tap it back in a Rooster class, or Soul Survivor on Saturday, we'll be on a bike next to each other.
