To know LISANNE GODNICK is to love her. Her bright red hair, her boisterous personality, and her loud singing (belting, really) on the bike can't help but put a smile on your face. Lisanne has been with Soul since day ONE and it certainly would not be the same without her.
I was at SoulCycle the first day it opened and have been there between 5 and 6 days a week ever since. I came the first day as I knew Julie from Reebok Sports Club where Julie and I used to ride, before Julie had her first child.
What brought me back a second time is the same reason that brings me back each and every time I go: while there are plenty of ladies who are a lot prettier and skinnier and wealthier than me in that room, when I sit on that bike each and every time I am made to feel like the most special person in the world for being exactly who I am -- me. I have been a psychotherapist in private practice on the UWS for 23 years and SoulCycle is my safe haven...it is where I go to take care of me....it is where I go to ride for what I want to have happen in my life.
Over the years I have developed very very special relationships with the employees at SoulCycle: Janet is my guru; Sue is my soulmate; Stacey and Laurie are the best coaches a girl can have; the people at the desk are fantastic and Julie and Elizabeth have a lot to be proud of.
So while i know you asked for short memories I could not stop at that. Thank you for the space to take care of me and I look forward to moving on together to a new space where we can put new dreams on our handle bars and ride on.
