SoulCycle: a place where skinny one-percenters congregate, and self-esteem goes to die. What began as a fulfilling workout in a low-key studio on the Upper West Side of Manhattan has now turned into a cultish nightmare phenomenon.

As if working out weren’t grueling enough, now we must subject ourselves to extreme body competition between neon-clad cyclers while an instructor, jacked-up on a mix of his own endorphins and copious amounts of protein powder, forces us to spin in hopes of going absolutely nowhere.

Sweating profusely while wondering how the anorexic in the front-row has more energy than we do to pedal — that sounds like a ton of fun! Since when did going to the good ol’ fashioned gym become a thing of the past? For all those who are anti-spinning, anti-paying extra for special shoes, and anti-overpriced Lululemon uniforms — we hear you!

We’re starting a soul-less revolution, and it feels even better than a 45-minute workout.

Why It’s Hotter To Refuse A Drink Than To Accept One

College is different than the real world in many ways. It was a bubble; you were able to act, dress and live in a way deemed unacceptable in the “real world.” It was a time of beer bongs, keg stands and crop tops. It’s when Sundays were for nursing hangovers and handles of vodka were […]

Ladies, Stop Saying You Can’t: 3 Times Women Literally Can, And Should

Ladies, what can’t we do? According to society, media and ourselves, a lot. The ideas, “you can’t,” “I can’t” and “we can’t,” are phrases often said to and by women. This happens because the world values twerking over teaching, and thigh gaps over wage gaps. And we’re (partly) to blame. The “I can’t do (math, humor, sports)” phenomenon […]
