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.
