Soul Cycle The Ultimate Mommy Workout

Image placeholder title

Burn baby burn. That's what my thighs were saying after my first session at Soul Cycle, the hippest workout in NYC. Like traditional spinning, the class relies on a motivated instructor and upbeat music. But that's where the similarity ends.

Mommy fitness buffs will adore this studio.

Mom (and Dads) want fast results will hop on a bike at this updated spinning studio and likely shed those last few pounds of baby weight or simply experience a killer workout with a touch of zen added in. The studio has a chill vibe before class starts. Low lighting is quite forgiving if you come right from pre-school drop off and there is a gorgeous, well-stocked shower area at the Downtown/Tribeca location. Soul Cycle targets the entire body, not just a mean cardio fest for 45 minutes. You'll get a upper body workout and work your core. If you are in a workout rut, this is just the thing to shake things up.

The first class is $20 and then from there singles are $32. The best bet is a pack of sessions (5 for $160, etc.). Expect to pay $3 per workout for the clip-in shoes. Be prepared to sweat--dress in fitted gear and remember the seat cover. Then spin your brain out. Work it mama!
