Man is it hard to break away from your desk in the middle of the workday, and doing a workout that doesn’t leave you drenched in sweat can feel like it didn’t do anything at all, but a recent trip to SoulCycle’s new venture, SoulAnnex, reminded me just how valuable a 50-minute pause can be.
The studio’s design is a big departure from the loud vibes of the SoulCycle world with calming lights, tons of candles, and scents of aromatherapy. Bonus, I loved the soundtrack – slow hip-hop and no chanting music, which can sometimes feel cheese. J’approve. I wore my Outdoor Voices Rec Kit for optimal comfort and flexibility, too.
SoulAnnex is SoulCycle’s Venice Beach cousin who wears cool hats you’re not sure you can pull off and I’m sold. With class offerings on every level, I say just give it a try. This is my new midday jam!
