Here's an article from the Huffington Post that we thought had some helpful tips for making your New Year's resolutions work for you:
1. Focus on the Internal
This year, forget about losing those last ten pounds and make a resolution to make this your healthiest year yet, or instead of resolving to get a manicure every week, promise yourself that you'll do one thing every day that helps move your career forward. If you focus on the bigger and more important reasons for your resolution, you'll be constantly reminded of the importance of keeping it.
Over at SoulCycle New Year's resolutions are a pretty big deal. They're a chance for a new beginning, new resolve and new inspiration for being a better, stronger YOU. Here are some of our INSTRUCTOR'S RESOLUTIONS. What are yours?
Sometimes it seems like there's nothing to do in NY during the holiday season: no one's around, stores are closed, and with snow on the ground it's hard to motivate yourslef to leave the house. But it doesn't have to be a blue Christmas season.
Here are a few soulful suggestions for things to do around the city... while you have the time to do them.
At SoulCycle we have decided that 2010 is The YEAR OF YOU!! This is the year we make more time for ourselves, look within for inspiration and make our bodies even stronger. What better way to kick off the YEAR OF YOU than a midnight run in Central P ark with friends and FIREWORKS!
If you've ever read "Soul Etiquette" on the SC website, you may have noticed rule number four. It reads, "Laundry: Wear Clean Clothes. We ride close together so we can feel and feed on each other's energy. That being said your neighbor does not want to feed off your odor."
But sometimes it's not all that simple.
SoulCycle loves the holidays, but doesn't love all the fat and sugar that come along with it. This is the only this time of year where you'll find yourself alternating between cheese and caramel-flavored popcorn, excusing it with the "Christmas alibi."
Well here's a decadent, guilt-free solution: O'cookies.
Still looking for the perfect gift: practical, unique and -- with less than five days until Christmas -- easy to find?
You're in luck. SC's technology consultant, Stephen Mack, has created an excellent gift guide.
To celebrate the holidays this year, the SC staff worked on changing our soles. That's right. We hung out, rocked out and designed our own sneakers at the Adidas Originals Store.
It’s happened to the best of us. You emerge from your spin class, walk down the street, and ride the subway home only to find that you’ve been sporting raccoon eyes, courtesy of your mascara. That’s why SoulCycle loves Imju Fiberwig mascara. The Japanese brand (famous for its lash-lengthening abilities) is resistant to oil, sweat and tears. A mascara that you can wear to work and a Laurie Cole class?
I think we're in love.
Instructor extraordinaire, MB Regan, talks to SoulCycle about her classes, her music and her name.
You've seen the words printed on the walls our studios: the expression of how we feel while we are riding, dancing and loving our SOULS. We call it our "mantra." Now you have a chance to make your own mantra.
Soul, Soul and more Soul...we've become practically insatiable. In the beginning we rode twice week; soon we jumped to four rides; and now we often need to double just to scratch that itch.
We think about Soul, we talk about Soul and on particularly stressful days we dream about Soul. Which begs the question... how can we get even more SOUL?
The answer? The SoulCycle Blog. Now, anytime you feel like a little extra soul, you can come here to read interviews with instructors, stock up on healthy recipes, and find out everything that SoulCycle loves – from songs to books to restaurants.
Just one request: try to refrain from reading the blog on your Blackberry while riding.
That could be dangerous.
