MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

Meet the SoulCycle Back Bay Instructors!

Today’s the day we kick off the cardio party in the Back Bay! The 10 rockstars leading the pack at our new studio opened up about the advice that inspires them, the foods that fuel them, and their favorite Boston memory. Plus... they put together a playlist of their favorite songs of the moment! See you on a bike in Boston!





What is your theme song? 
I feel like everyday it's different depending on how I feel. I love to listen to music first thing in the morning, it sets my mood and energy for the day. 

Last book you read? 
Mmm, honest answer? 50 Shades of Grey. Accepting all book recommendations! 

What's your screen saver? 
A picture of my boyfriend and my hands clasped at dinner in Positano, Italy. If you have never been to the Almafi Coast, do it.

Who is your hero?  
My mom, dad, and older brother are my heroes; without them I would be lost. 

Best advice you've ever received?  
"If you never try, you'll never know.” I am not even sure where I actually heard this for the first time but it has stuck with me and I live by it everyday. 

What's is always on your grocery list?  
PEANUT BUTTER. I get nervous when my jar is almost empty. 

Which superpower would you like for 24 hours? 
To be able to see someone instantly. I guess you would call that "teleportation" so I could see my family and friends who don't live nearby whenever I wanted to. 

If you didn't know your age, how old would you be? 
Um, 28? That's how old I really am and I love being in my late twenties! But I guess I look like I’m about 15.

Riding CitiBikes along the Charles river earlier this summer, stopping to take in the city skyline from the other side of the river and it hit me: Boston is home.

Pure baking soda. I use it as a natural exfoliator for my skin! And you can make a face mask by mixing it with water and letting it dry to remove blackheads and tighten skin. I also scrub my feet with it!

Put your head down and keep going....
