Fitness Friday: I Tried The SoulCycle Of Treadmill Gyms And It Wasn’t As Horrible As It Sounds (via Blisstree)

To hold you over while I get my act together, here’s a review of The Mile High Run Club I wrote for Blisstree.com: To be honest, I’ve only ever been to one SoulCycle class. It was almost over a year ago, and all I remember thinking was that I couldn’t believe people paid upwards of
