Updated: 10/27/14 I continue to be confused by people’s insistence that Indoor Cycling is in someway unsafe – so I thought I should republish this post. Updated: 7/11 My mic failed this morning. We were about 10 min. into our hour class when any small movement of my head caused the loud crashing sound many of us have experienced. I was teaching to our latest Audio PROfile, Paceline Cycling in
This morning I read how Soul Cycle has been banning fitness instructors (from competing studios) who try to attend their class. SoulCycle bans fitness instructors from its classes About 10 days after hitting a SoulCycle class on a recent day off, Barry’s Bootcamp owner Joey Gonzalez got a phone call.
