The New York–based cycling studio has taken Chicago by storm, achieving the nearly impossible feat of making a 45-minute, high intensity cycling ride, "fun." With upbeat instructors, catchy hip-hop beats (rumor has it you might even catch a themed "Justin Bieber" ride every so often) and choreography, you might forget this is a calorie-blasting, full-body workout in the process.

My workplace had a month free of SoulCycle and I absolutely loved it! I usually went to Katie's classes at OldTown. All of the instructors want to see you succeed and meet goals. They play great music and have fun theme nights. One of my favorites was the Beyonce Lemonade night and they gave everyone Lemonade after! The class is so fun and I always feel like time flies by! Most fun and intense workout I have ever done.


The first time I went to Soul Cycle, I thought I was going to puke. Seriously. It's that hard. But with each 45 minute class, I got used to the intense cardio and fast pace (still not easy). My friend and I describe these classes as "dancing on a bike." If you're not super coordinated, it might be hard to stay on beat. Each instructor has different techniques as well as themed classes, like a Diplo vs. Skrillex class. Our favorite is Naz's "Hip Hop Monday," where she mixes everything from G-Eazy to throwback Missy Elliot. They also make you feel special at Soul Cycle - remembering your name and calling it out during class, or even your birthday or personal goals. It's fun, and definitely worth the $35. My only complaint is that they don't offer a monthly membership, which can get pricey. Otherwise, it's worth trying to "dance on a bike." You might even forget you're working out.
