"Soul Cycle" Your Way to A Healthy Life-Style

Posted: Updated:
Short Hills, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Exercise classes aren't for everyone but if you come across the right one you might find it to be fulfilling. There is a new trend in the work-out world that doesn't only give you a great cardio work-out but it can make you healthier overall.

Soul Cycle is a 45 minute in-door cycling class that doesn't only change your body, it can change your life. Basically how this class works is you ride a spin bike in a dark, candle-lit room with loud music playing to pump you up all the way through your work-out.

Soul Cycle Rider Kathy Welsh has lost a lot of weight and her doctor agrees she is much healthier then she has ever been after participating in this class.

"I found a cardio exercise that I love and its fun and it's not hard work to get motivated to come and do it," she said.

Soul Cycle creates a cult-like, motivated community in it's own way! Welsh's friends saw the change in her body and new-found happy attitude so they wanted to know what she was doing.

"I said come ride with me, so I brought a whole group, I think I filled the room with a group of mother's from my son's high school and we had a blast!" She explained.

Soul Cycle Instructor, Krista Bonura explains why Soul Cycle is so different from other spin classes or other exercise classes in general.

"It's 45 minutes to yourself, you get a full body work-out to the rhythm, it's in a dark room, there's candle lights, and really it's not about competition or judgement or expectations, it's about you and being the best you can be," she explained.

Soul Cycle can be for anyone, both female and males and even celebrities do it! Never be afraid to try new exercise opportunities, maybe Soul Cycle is for you!
