SoulCycle: Why Some People Have Stopped Doing This 'Fitness Fad'

August 04, 2015 1 min read

SoulCycle is a boutique studio for indoor cycling which has become increasingly popular. The fashionable 45-minute classes promise to take you on a journey that will transform your body. But for some people, they have been let down by the grapefruit aroma and candlelight of SoulCycle. The concept of SoulCycle is that you are working your upper body with hand weights while vigorously pedalling to tone and transform your body. But some health and fitness experts say this type of routine could be damaging to your body, along with doing virtually nothing to your figure. "[Doing SoulCycle] you're probably going to burn less calories because your power output is going to drop." says Jennifer Sage, a fitness instructor with a degree in exercise science. There is also an implied risk involved with SoulCycle workouts. The company has been open about the fact that few of it's instructors have fitness backgrounds and are there moreso because of their personality. Jennifer explains that some of the moves taught in class are "potentially harmful to joints and the musculature of the back". Plus, riding without any resistance can increase chances of lower back injuries while providing zero health or fitness benefits. So with all the hype, elitism and expense that SoulCycle comes with, it really has nothing about it that makes it worth the price tag. What do you think? Have you had success with SoulCycle or is it another fitness fad? Share your thoughts with us! Source: Business Insider Do you follow us on Instagram?
