Soul Cycle at The Point- Thanks Club MomMe!

For those of you not in the know, Soul Cycle is a boutique spin studio that has a cult like following. 

I needed to know why! Is it just the cute clothes they sell and their disciples wear with such ferver? Or was there more than just an average class happening?

My questions were answered when I happened to catch a free pass through Club MomMe at Soul Cycle's new location in El Segundo at The Point.

It's a tight sweaty squeeze through the lobby/locker room to the studio. And an even tighter squeeze to get to your bike! But once I was on my bike with the help of manager Ben, I was good to go!

This was my view before they took my phone. I forgot to read rule number one in the lobby. My bad!

Good thing I didn't have my phone, because I didn't need the distractions. Our awesome instructor, Chris Layda, put us through our paces and was a champ at taking a room of mostly Soul Cycle virgins and making us sweat.

Something to know about me- I do not like spin class. I've been to about 6 in my lifetime, and have participated in Cycle for Survival, but that's it. It's not my jam! I DID like Soul Cycle, and it was the emphasis on the soul. The powerful phrases used throughout the class made me feel uplifted and empowered. I was really surprised that I liked it so much. 

If you are interested in trying a spin class with a little more substance, I recommend Soul Cycle. It was a motivating butt kicker! And I walked away with a little silver tote bag as a momento to show off to the other disciples. ;)

Thanks to Club MomMe and instructor Chris!

Weighing in: the Bugaboo Stroller Issue

I may be a little late to the party, but I do have a 7 month old. 😒

Have you seen this story?


Long story short, this model was chosen to run and model a Bugaboo stroller with her 2 year old. She is super thin and fit. People were upset about it.

To be honest, I hope that after 2 years I can look fit after having a baby. This isn't 2 months later. I don't know what all the kerffufle is. Clearly this woman is genetically made this way. You can't be a hater.

Who else has an opinion on this?
