Festive cocktails and sumptuous meals threaten the figure. Work it out with a complimentary community ride at SoulCycle. Individual classes are usually $30, but starting at noon every other Monday, you can sign up for a free spin for that week!
Currently, this East Coast cult cycling studio has four locations: Soul Beverly Hills, Soul Brentwood, Soul Santa Monica and Soul West Hollywood. Soul Malibu is slated to open this spring! Right now, community rides occur every other week at the following times: Friday in Santa Monica at 2 p.m. and Saturday in Beverly Hills at 2 p.m. Register for a free account now. Then, log in at noon on Monday, February 10, 2014 (and every other Monday thereafter) to book a community ride. Free spins fill up fast, so race over to the website exactly at noon. If you just make the wait list, don't stress. People often flake -- this is L.A. after all! You'll be called if there's a cancellation, or you can take your chances and show up. Usually, you'll score a bike. Bi-coastal? Community rides are also offered in New York!
Expect a 45-minute journey lead by the newest instructors. Be aware: you must be at least 4'11 to properly fit on the bike. Cycling shoes that clip into the bike are required, since they provide a more stable, safer ride and allow you to target the correct muscle groups. Shoes are available for rental at all SoulCycle studios, or you are welcome to bring your own. Shoe rentals are free for your first class, but rentals thereafter are $3. If you plan to bring your own shoes, Look Delta clips are highly recommended, though the pedals are also SPD compatible.
Change your body, and find your soul. Join the community.
