SoulCycle: Spinning Gets a Modern Makeover
Going to spin class used to mean lacing up bulky shoes and sweating it out in a stale corner of the gym, probably with an instructor barking commands at you. But that type of spin class is dying out and being replaced by a new style of boutique spinning. Case in point: SoulCycle. This renowned chain of spinning studios has locations scattered all across the country, from New Jersey to California, and one happens to reside right in Larkspura.
Like the other studios, Larkspur's SoulCycle offers a roster of spin-centric classes with a few extras thrown in. The classic 45-minute SoulCycle ride promises encouraging instruction, a heart-pumping "course," and thumping music to keep you motivated—not to mention some added weight work. If you're up for more of a challenge, try the Soul Survivor class, which is a full 60 minutes, or the Soul Challenge, a 90-minute course. You can even work out with resistance bands affixed to the ceiling if you join a Soul Bands ride.
