SOULCYCLE OPENS FIRST-EVER STUDIO IN BUCKHEAD
BY: Karon Warren
Well-known as a fitness favorite with celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, SoulCycle now brings its popular indoor cycling classes to Buckhead in a new location at the Shops Around Lenox. Featuring 56 bikes, the 3,128-square-foot studio offers a variety of classes geared to everyone from first-time riders to hardcore jocks. “SoulCycle is different from anything out there,” says instructor Olivia Ward. “Our riders [receive] an incredible workout, but we work from the inside out. We get the opportunity with each ride to physically tap into our inner athlete while filling our hearts and souls at the same time.” The company is known as much for its class leaders’ inspirational and motivational banter as its sweat-inducing and calorie-burning sessions.
With the Buckhead studio, SoulCycle makes its entrance into not only Atlanta, but the entire state of Georgia. Ward says it’s a natural fit for the company. “SoulCycle at its core is about creating community and working together as a pack,” she says. “I know that in the South these values line up with who we are as people. It’s truly a perfect match.”
Classes are $20 for first time riders and $30 per class for regular riders. Packages of 5, 10, 20 and 30 classes also are available.
