How Tapping it Back Helped This Rider Find Inner Peace (And Lose 16 Pounds!)
an Dobson-Smith has only been clipping in at SoulCycle for a few months, but he's fallen in love with the pack. He shares how riding with his #SoulFam has helped him find confidence and self-acceptance, while transforming his body… (He's already lost 16 pounds and 2 inches from his waist!)
The endorphin rush that I felt after completing my first ride. The welcome I got from the front desk team at SOMA. MK's energy [she was my first instructor], and the compelling warmth and friendliness of all the instructors I then met... Andrew, Molli, Jenna, Chris. It was all incredible. I love the community! Oh, and the fact that I saw changes in my body, mind and soul… that's pretty cool too!
I loved my first ever SoulSurvivor ride with Andrew. I thought I was going to die. But I didn't. Then there was my first ever 90-minute ride with MK, which was Britney Spears-themed. It felt like it was over and done with in moments. And then there's the moment Molli S. absolutely kicked my a** by turning up my resistance for me. They are all amazing.
SOUL has changed my life. And I am not exaggerating. I travel around the world a lot on business — Japan, Singapore, India and the UK, to name a few places — and when I'm away I even seek out other indoor cycling studios so that I can keep my fitness up. But there's nowhere in the world quite like SOUL. I am always pleased to come home and get a warm welcome from my #SOULFam and an energy boost from MK, Andrew, Jenna, Molli or Chris.
