When I lived in New York City from January to July of this year, I couldn’t escape the SoulCycle craze. It seemed like everyone was heading to or talking about these indoor cycling studios. I never really caught on, maybe because the following appeared to be almost cult-like, and more of a trend than a way to stay fit. Not to mention, a SINGLE CLASS starts at $34. However, indoor cycling was on my radar, and I have been on the lookout for an opportunity to explore it more without breaking the bank.
Megan Lieberman, a Northeastern University senior, is heavily involved in Recycle Studio, an indoor cycling studio with two Boston locations. She has played many roles since the studio opened several years ago, from running their blog to teaching classes. I’d love to learn more from her, as well as her coworkers, about the Recycle’s history and the spin craze that’s really caught on in the past couple of years. I’d also like to explore the kind of commitment it takes to run a fitness studio. I plan on attending a class for myself, and also speaking with participants on why they chose to spin, and specifically at Recycle. I look forward to providing you with some insight into the world of indoor cycling, as well as a look at what it’s like to be a part of a small (but expanding) fitness studio.
If you have any suggestions, or anything you’d like me to specifically address, please let me know in the comments section.
