First SoulCycle studio in Western Washington to open in 2017


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
started SoulCycle
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.
