Do you have a soul? Do you sometimes cycle, or occasionally look at a bicycle? If so, you’ll love SoulCycle, the country’s premier full-body cycling studio, which is slated to open in Georgetown at 1042 Wisconsin Avenue NW late this summer.
These 45-minute classes will completely kick your butt. At $30 a pop, you can burn between 500-700 calories with “high intensity cardio” while toning your upper body with hand weights and core-engaging choreography.
The class takes place in a candlelit studio, which makes riders feel like they are “partying in a healthy nightclub.” The exercise program emphasizes rhythm and “energy of the pack,” which creates a strong bond between riders.
This is the third SoulCycle location in the DC area, after the ones on 23rd and M St. and in Bethesda. Two additional locations are planned in the area and will open by the end of 2015.
Souls? Bonds? Nightclubs? This sounds like a killer way to spend an afternoon and meet some new friends (or creepy stalkers). With fans in celebrities like Madonna, Lady Gaga, David and Victoria Beckham and the newly single Bradley Cooper (drool), you know SoulCycle is a quality place.
Their motto: “SoulCycle is the destination where you take a journey, change your body and find your soul.”
If you’re feeling lost, unmotivated or you have the unfortunate fate of being a ginger, check out SoulCycle when it finally opens late this summer.
