Soulcycle

On Saturday, I got to try out the new Soulcycle location in Chestnut Hill thanks to Sweet Green Passport program.

I’m glad I tried it, but I don’t think that style of spin class is for me.

For starters – I arrived at class just when it started. (Darn GPS taking me a round about way from my house. I’d left an hour before a trip google maps said would take 20 minutes and still needed the full hour.) The room where the class is is very dark, so even though I was being lead in by a staffer, I wasn’t comfortable. My bike seat ended up being way too high for me.

The class has a lot of standing and pedaling, which is OK, but not my favorite spin move.

Then, the instructor got a little crazy and started spraying water from her bottle on people taking the class. I wear glasses so I worried water would get on them. It did & I tried to wipe it off with a towel.

I understand why others would be addicted to a class combining spin, yoga, dance moves, and weights – but I wasn’t a huge fan.
