SWEAT IT OUT

SoulCy­cle spins into Toronto

The Kit - - NEWS -

Pop­u­lar Amer­i­can spin­ning chain SoulCy­cle opens its first in­ter­na­tional lo­ca­tion in Toronto to­day, bring­ing its yel­low bikes and its abil­ity to wrap any­one who en­ters in a warm cult-like em­brace. The candlelit classes span 45 min­utes— barely the length of a juicy ca­ble-TV drama— but those pre­cious mo­ments “tap­ping back” to up­beat tunes burn 500 to 700 calo­ries and con­vert fit­ness non-be­liev­ers faster than it takes a bead of sweat to trickle down your neck. In­struc­tor Jenna Garo­falo rec­om­mends new­bies start out with the clas­sic SoulCy­cle class. “The beauty of it is that mo­ti­va­tion comes from the in­struc­tors and the en­ergy of the pack.” To fete the 55-bike King Street West stu­dio, the com­pany col­lab­o­rated with home­grown brands on merch like a Roots var­sity jacket that will have heads spin­ning, too. —Veronica Saroli
