Stacey Griffith Talks About Riding into Palm Springs

e’re dancing into the desert with Senior Master Instructor STACEY GRIFFITH leading the pack. Yes, SOUL has partnered with American Express to pop up at Platinum House at The Parker Palm Springs this month. Before kicking off the cardio parties, Stacey talked with us about what she’s packing, how she’s prepping and who she can’t wait to see…

Tell us about how you’ll be riding Into the desert with Amex…
I am so honored to be riding into the desert with members of the Platinum Collective Board from NYC on a Delta airlines private jet, a new way of travel service offered to Platinum members and the public! It will be fun to have this experience; I have never taken Delta Private Aviation before so that's exciting!

What can’t you wait to do when you’re there?
The first thing I will do is hang by the pool at The Parker hotel. I can't wait to soak up some sun first and foremost! It has been a grey, rainy winter and spring on the East Coast!

What do you think about festival season and festival culture?
I don't know anything about festival culture! I don't drink, smoke or do drugs so for me it is about the exercise, the music, and more music! I'm hoping to offer people an alternative to this experience this year. I think there is a whole group of music junkies that live and breathe the way I do, so for me to be able to offer this option is so cool!

Why is SOUL the perfect way to start your day during festival season?
For those who are looking to "sweat out the toxins,” SoulCycle is here to get your mind and body straight after a crazy night of dancing and drinking. I highly suggest, however, that all participants drink lots of water and bring the Tylenol!

You were once a DJ — have you been to many festivals?
In my DJ years, I never participated in festivals as they weren't really around then. This will be my form of DJing and coaching at COACH-ELLA!! Ha ha.

What are you packing for the trip?
I'm from California so I know how to dress for Coachella: I will be bringing you tomboy desert chic!

Any beauty must-haves for the desert?
I'm bringing lots of Sephora coconut wipes and pomegranate masks and my recent find from SoulCycle rider Stacey Weinstein: beautycounter Mimosa body lotion! They also make a 30 SPF stick that I will bring in my bag of tricks. I never leave home without my Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation (also with SPF) and for sure my TIGI After Party hair cream! I'll bring an SPF no less than 50, some Robert Marc sunglasses, and a SOULCYCLE trucker hat for each day. (I'm teaching eight classes so I plan on sweating through my a few!)

What other gear will you have?
I'm excited to see what the retail team has created for this event! Coachella gear will be available for sale! No doubt even if you don't ride, you'll want to stop by and grab a tank for summer… and hang with us and hydrate. I will be signing copies of my book TWO TURNS FROM ZERO, a perfect read for your trip back home!

Anything you want to add?
I'm really excited to see everyone but mostly excited to watch LADY GAGA! Love another SG! See ya OUTSIDE on a BIKE!
