A popular fitness program is opening its first studio in the Northwest.
Bellevue’s SoulCycle location will open in 2017. Learn about the location here.
The 60-location nationwide company, which The New York Times described as a “sort of spinning self-help therapy
session with dim lighting and a primal dance beat,”has a cult following.
And that’s despite the $34 cost of the upscale aerobic experience class. Unlike the Y and other gyms, SoulCycle doesn’t have an unlimited membership option.
The classes have taken cities like Los Angeles and New York by storm.
Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, who
a decade ago with one studio in New York City, stepped down as co-chief creative officers in September to pursue other projects, but they’ll continue on the company’s board, according to published reports.
Health club Equinox bought a majority stake in 2011 and now owns 97 percent of SoulCycle, according to CBS News.
SoulCycle reported revenue of $112 million in 2014 and $34.8 million for 2015 through March 31.
