I started SoulCycle because it’s a trend and I always have to try everything once. It was a free class and I said “screw it” lets do it.
I’ll be honest, the night before my first class I was up all night watching videos and psyching myself out. In retrospect I really shouldn’t have done that, there is nothing scary about SoulCycle.
I was talking to a friend this morning about why he wouldn’t go to SoulCycle and I was kind of shocked. He was afraid of the shoes and falling off the bike (Sorry J! I had to tell people!)
Let’s get a few things straight about SoulCycle.
- YOU WILL NOT FALL OFF THE BIKE
The shoes are there to make sure you don’t. You are literally clipped into the bike
- Drink lots of water
You will sweat so much during this class you’ll want to drink before class and during
- You will want to quit
I have never been to a Soul class I haven’t had to push myself through to the end. I probably get half way through the class and think “I feel like I’m going to die, I’m done” and then the other voice inside of me says “Don’t be a Pussy, keep pushing” So I do. Best feeling in the world is the end of class knowing that you have accomplished something great.
