Were you lucky enough to get a spot at the SoulCycle x Target free popup in Chicago last weekend? I was able to check out their Friday 5pm class. The SoulCycle x Target popup tour is part of Target’s focus on helping you have a healthier new year.


The pop up was pretty neat! It was in a location on South Michigan Ave, so I could jet over after work and then head home without going out of my way. There was a pop-up shop with special SoulCycle branded C9 workout gear, a photobooth, snacks afterward, and of course, a SoulCycle ride!


This was my very first experience with SoulCycle. I used to take cycling classes years ago at the gym, riding similar bikes and led by similarly high-energy instructors, but with a slightly more R&B playlist (just came with the area I was living in at the time – far south suburbs). I always really enjoyed those classes, so I was excited to see how SoulCycle compares.

The class definitely had a TON of energy! Our class was led by Aya and she was great. SoulCycle provided our bike shoes to clip in, and every bike was stocked with a towel, water bottle and a couple small hand weights to use during the ride. Afterward, we received SoulCycle x Target bags with KIND bars and probiotic waters from Suja (I tried ginger lime which was tasty).

Wanna check out SoulCycle for yourself? Attendees to SoulCycle x Target received a postcard good for a free class at the new SoulCycle Southport – and I’m giving that to one of you! Enter via Rafflecopter, I’ll pick a winner on February 18th and mail the postcard to the winner. You must bring the postcard with you to redeem the free class, it’s walk-in only based on availability, limit one free pass per SoulCycle account, and the postcard expires 3.31.16.

Don’t forget I’m also giving away two free weeks at BRICK Chicago
