things to do in boston: spinning at sweat and soul yoga

I think I've made it an unofficial pact with my friend Hillary to try different exercise classes this fall. We've been meeting up and going to classes and planning to go to classes. It's a fun way to try new things! So for the past few weeks, she and I have been hitting up the RealRyder spinning classes at Sweat and Soul Yoga.
And it has been sufficiently kicking my butt.

The bikes turn side to side, so it's like you're really out there on a bike. For me, this is great and ridiculously difficult because I do not know how to ride a bike. There are sprints and there are hills and there are jumps and oh there are arm workouts because let's work out your whole body.

The classes are 45 minutes long, which seems perfect to me. Classes are over before I know it, but before I get bored. The studio is a bit small with only 14 bikes, but I've never felt like I was too close to someone while class was going on. And if I've accidentally splattered someone with sweat, I'm sorry. I'm a sweater exerciser.

Overall, this is a workout I'm hoping to keep up, especially once marathon training comes around again. If you're in Boston and looking for a good spin class, give it a shot!

Oh, and if you were wondering, Hillary and I are trying pilates next. Pray for me.

  1. this sounds horrifying to me also because i can't ride a bicycle. but a great workout nonetheless!!

  2. Wait, you don't know how to ride a bike?

    1. No ma'am. I have no idea how to ride a bike!

  3. you're so athletic- i just go to a park and walk around in a circle a few times like an old person-- or do a workout video at home, alone! :)
