Over the past few summers, spin classes have become the go-to exercise trend throughout the east end and beyond. It’s become known as a great way to release stress and burn fat, while toning muscle, finding enjoyment in the simple act of movement, and for some, a great way to change their bodies and lives.
SoulCycle offers a high energy, results-oriented and community based program, in which riders engage in high intensity cardio, while also toning their upper bodies using hand weights and core-engaging choreography. SoulCycle classes are held in candlelit studios, making riders feel like they are partying in a healthy nightclub. The dark, non-intimidating rooms allow riders to lose themselves in the workout.
Rides take place to one-of-a-kind playlists with instructors who are inspirational coaches, pushing riders to do their best on and off the bike, and integrate themselves within the community.
SoulCycle has transformed the old Montauk movie theatre into a 67-bike, 2,900 square-foot studio, home to the signature SoulCycle workout, and an expansive SoulCycle lifestyle boutique. Additional rider amenities include a men’s and women’s locker room with one bathroom each, and new on-site parking. SoulCycle Montauk is located at 15 South Edgemere Road, Montauk, NY 11954
