The Best Spin Classes, with the most obnoxious booking policies, and only getting worse!
Aug 2019
Soul Cycle has the best indoor spin classes, with no comparison to all the competition. It is a dance class on wheels, with the best instructors around. They are also the most obnoxious and greedy, and have become increasingly so over time. If you don't mind spending over $5K a year, that allows you to ride in the back of the room in back of all the people willing to lend the company $3500 ($70 a class) who generally don't know the routine as well as many others in the back. With each update of the mobile app and website, it has become increasingly clear that Soul Cycle plays games with bike assignments, reserving the front row not just for people willing to pay more, but also teachers pets. After 10 years of spinning loyally here, I can no longer get into most of the classes I have been taking for 10 years (unless i want to pay double), and now they have a new program called Soul Early, whereby they allow anyone to pay $15 extra to also book before the rest of us. In my opinion, Soul Cycle is taking for granted to subscription value of my business, and it dawns on me that I know all the routines by heart since I now ride in the back with my eyes closed! Hmmmm I can just get a spin bike at home, and do the memorized routine at home, duh and done. It appears that everyone is doing this, because it is so easy to get into mid-week classes, and impossible on weekends, I think I will follow the leaders and only go to soul when it is a Master Instructor at a prime time, and hey how about a discount on all those mid-week classes that are now empty?

I went everyday for seven days whilst in Noho, and I can safely say I enjoyed every minute! As a somewhat "fuller figured" 52yr old I wondered if I would feel out of place amongst the young hipsters of the area, but I can only describe everyone, from the front of house staff to the instructors themselves, as absolutely warm and welcoming!
The set up is incredibly professional with shoes available for rent and towels ready on every bike!
After reading some cynical British press about Soul Cycle, I thought I might find the "finding your soul" element of the workout to be psycho-babble, but i can honestly say I came out of every class at 8am, feeling absolutely euphoric and ready to take on the world!!
It was great getting back to the family just as they were waking up, knowing I had done my exercise and could look forward to a great breakfast without the guilt....
If you're visiting NYC try it, you'll love it!!

The concept is good but they failed in understanding the core of execising. One of the benefits of cycling is to bring relaxation while you exercise. It does not make any sense to put the music so high vilume that they even distribute ear plugs!!!! I could not even hear what the instructor had to say. It would be much healthier to have music play that it will create a motivating atmosphere. Now, you come out of the class with a good sweat but broken ears!!!

I loved everything about soul cycle except the price tag! I can't wait to go back to NYC to do it again. The best spin class I've ever been to and I've been to a lot. Amazing sound system, challenging workout. gorgeous space. Helpful staff. awesome all around.

We signed up for a ride while in New York visiting for the weekend. Since we had never done Soulcycle before, the ride was only $20. I loved the convenience of using their shoes and towels. The facility is clean and the staff so helpful and friendly. Our instructor was Joey and he kicked my ask ! Great music, great motivation and great workout!

On two recent trips to NYC, I was able to go to four SoulCycle classes and they were all amazing! I have done Spinning for years, but this is above and beyond any other class I have ever done. Such great energy, amazing instructors, I can't wait to go back! PLEASE, open a Soul Cycle in Philly!!!!
