This month Facebook shared a couple MEMORY posts that fit well with today's JANUARY Guest Post...one was a memory from 4 years ago when I posted news about FLYWHEEL opening a studio in Scarsdale, NY. The other, a memory from a year ago when I took a FLY60 class in Chicago / Old Town...with Jeremy … Continue reading #NEVERCOAST @flyCHI: A Guest Post by Jeremy S. 402

Windy City Warrior: A guest post by Brent L. 387

Living on the other side of Lake Michigan, Chicago has always been a favorite family getaway...usually around the November/December holidays. Old Town (a north-side Chicago neighborhood) is the current home for my youngest daughter and home to one of four SoulCycle studios in greater Chicago (SoulCycle Chicago). My first SoulCycle class was at the Old … Continue reading Windy City Warrior: A guest post by Brent L. 387

Soundtrack… 338

Inspiration: Just like the importance of a solid SOUNDTRACK in a movie or television show...a good ride becomes a great adventure with a solid SOUNDTRACK (aka Playlist, Tracklist, SpinList). Here's a good one! I've used both variations...the full 60m mix and a shortened 45m version. Either way, there are plenty of calories to be burned … Continue reading Soundtrack… 338
