Soul Cycle NYC
Soul Cycle’s full-body workout has revolutionized indoor cycling and taken the world of fitness by storm. Combining inspirational coaching and high-energy music, Soul Cycle offers an engaging workout that benefits both the mind and the body.
Each Soul Cycle ride delivers an intense FULL-BODY workout with a fun and energizing atmosphere. Not only do riders burn calories and get their hearts pumping, but using the Soul Cycle® Method, riders also work their core and use hand weights to tone their upper bodies. In all of our studios, we ensure that Soul Cyclists are treated to the country's best instructors and staff, trained to deliver unique services and personal attention to all levels of riders.
In select studios, we also offer Soul Bands, our REVOLUTIONARY class that challenges the entire body by using resistance bands that hang above each bike. The 60-minute workout includes several anaerobic intervals and trains the WHOLE body, toning the abs, oblique’s, shoulders, triceps, biceps and back - all while maintaining fat-burning cardio levels.
Beyond providing an intense cardio workout, Soul Cycle also incorporates a mental component of inspirational coaching. By keeping the lights low and riding by candlelight, Soul Cycle creates a cardio sanctuary where riders can come to clear their heads.
