Whenever I hear from someone that I've inspired them to try SoulCycle or spinning in general, it makes my day! I've had some readers leave comments about it but if your email address isn't attached to your handle, I'm not able to reply individually. I always try!
It's Friday! Friday means SoulCycle for me. The times and classes vary, but I always like to kickoff the weekend with a ride. It's the best way to start a period of relaxation, as backwards as that may sound.
I'm a big fan of Fitness Magazine. Some of you might remember that I bonded with their Beauty Director last month at the Look Good...Feel Better event at Saks. One of my favorite SoulCycle instructors, Charlee, is featured in the October issue of Fitness! You can catch her on pages 67-68. In fact, I often see Jenna, the fitness editor of Fitness Mag, in the front row of Charlee's class! (Right near Kelly Ripa!)
I have such a girl crush on Charlee. She is such a bad-ass and so inspiring! She always pushes me to my limit. She encourages me during every ride, whether it's a shout-out on the mic or putting her hand on mine during a really tough sprint. It means so much to me that she sees potential in me that I don't always see in myself. I started taking her class right when she became an instructor and was still relatively unknown. I rode in her class before it was full. Now, she's so wildly popular that I have to fight for a bike! But it's always worth it. You can read more about her here.
Wishing you a wonderful, healthy and active weekend!
