Calling all rockstars (or rockstars-to-be)! We're teaming up with Soulcycle for this month's Racked Fit Club, heading to the new studio they debuted on the Upper West Side in May. Emily L. will be leading us in 45 minutes of riding to the beat—complete with choreography and a dedicated arms section—in the candlelit studio at W92 (2465 Broadway) this Thursday, June 18th beginning at 6:30pm.
If you're interested in attending, you should be able to get to the studio at least 15 minutes before class starts for check-in and set-up. Fitted leggings or capris and a top you're ready to sweat in are recommended, and the studio will be providing clip-in shoes, water bottles, and towels free of charge. You'll be able to store your stuff in their keypad lockers (read: no padlock needed), and you can take advantage of the showers after class if need be. And don't be intimidated if you've never tapped back at Soulcycle before—this class is suitable for all levels.
