I went to my first SoulCycle class. Good for your mind; good for your body; good for your spirit; bad for your a**.
SoulCycle is an empowering fitness class that has you sprinting, dancing, bouncing and lifting weights while locked into a pretty yellow cycle of hell. Candlelight sets the visual mood and loud, base pounding music sets the soul intention. It’s like riding into a dimly lit disco on a vagina torturing unicorn in a confusing room of mirrors, led by Zoolander. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
Getting on the latest trend train and trying something new makes me feel a little brand new. Yes, I was slightly intimidated by the younger, more toned crowd I was riding with but I didn’t feel self-conscious. What I did feel was a questioning of my sanity about 20 minutes in and a significant rise in lactic acid. What the hell was I thinking?! What made me decide this was a good idea?!
Five minutes later I was on a sweaty high, knowing I could conquer the world, or at least the pain in my thighs. I felt like Rocky without the boxing gloves. At the end of the session when I figured out how to unlock my shoes from the pedals so I didn’t have to do the class AGAIN, I bowed my head with a silent “Namaste”. I was a survivor.
Life is full of opportunities . . . to test your endurance, or faith, or humor or fearlessness! Get on YOUR Soul Cycle and pedal your a** to somewhere you can’t wait to be!
