REVIEW: SoulCycle (NoHo)
Flew across the country just to get our asses kicked by the infamous Akin. KIDDING, but it was one of the first things we scheduled when we booked this trip! The class definitely lived up to the hype and was a killer way to start our day in the city.
It was very different from you typical Soul Cycle class because Akin’s style is unique. He is a master instructor, so he really knows what he is doing and he doesn’t accept anything less than 100% from his class. Foundation and form are the main message he shares when instructing. If you don’t have the foundation and footwork, then you can’t get out of the saddle or do the arm moves. He is strict, but he is efficient. His following is religious and they show up front and center with their towels waving and Akin gear on. Definitely worth it to check out his class, but be prepared to be humbled even if you are an experienced rider.
SWEAT&SAVE: Nothing. This is Soul Cycle….they don’t do discounts lol
