SoulCycle x Target Pop Up

In partnership with Target, SoulCycle has been bringing its heart pumping classes to the masses—for free. For the last month, these classes have been literally popping up in ten cities all over the US, including Miami, DC, Seattle, Nashville, Minneapolis, Chicago, and of course, LA.

For three days, Soul Cycle bikes take over a super cool space in each city, offering local residents a shot at spinning with the best!

The pop-ups also allow riders a special chance to shop the exclusive SoulCycle + Target collaboration that includes a sweatshirt + sweatpants and a tank with the famous Soul wheel logo. There’s also a variety of the C9 by Champion gear—Target’s line of active wear—well, more like athleisure with how cute it is.

I had the opportunity to check out a class this past Saturday in the penthouse of the downtown AT&T Center that offers incredible views of LA. The experience was exactly what I would expect of both brands—seamless check in, great swag, and countless insta-worthy photo ops.

For 45-minutes we tapped it back and spun like crazy—per SoulCycle fashion—to awesome beats with an even better view. It threw me off a bit to spin in broad daylight because I love being able to close my eyes and really get into the moment, but the energy in the room and from the instructor made up for it.

On the way out, we were given a swag bag with a Suja juice, KIND bar, and coupon for $5 off some c9 gear!

Thank you to SoulCycle and Target for an incredible event and for choosing such a picture-perfect spot to sweat!

C9 Champion Yoga Event at Shutters on the Beach

Oh my gosh, what a great weekend to be an LA resident—and a fitness blogger! This morning I had the opportunity to attend a yoga event with celeb instructor Kristin McGee sponsored by Target’s athletic wear line, C9 Champion. The event was held at the gorgeous Santa Monica hotel, Shutters on the Beach (which was also a top contender for my wedding venue, until the east coast won out), and we were all sent C9 gear beforehand to wear!

Once I arrived and grabbed some coffee in the lobby, I headed down to the Promenade room to find bright yoga mats and equally bright workout gear. The morning started with a 45-minute class where Kristen led us through a series of sun salutations, warrior poses, and some mat Pilate’s moves. Afterwards, we were free to help ourselves to smoothies, granola, and exercise clothes (every girl’s DREAM). There were also masseuses available for 15 minute massages—perfect after a workout but before heading to actual work. Of course, my friend and I had to sneak away for pictures with some of my new gear by the beach!

Tomorrow I will be attending the Nike Women Los Angeles Tour in downtown LA to sweat with 2,000 STRONG ladies. Can’t wait to see some of you there!!!!
