SoulCycle is the indoor cycling fad that has swept the nation. Founded in New York and now offered in 11 states, the classes focus on choreographed movements while cycling. All those movements are timed to a playlist for each class, and conducted in a room dimly lit by candles (the "soul" part). Interestingly, SoulCycle offers no memberships, and classes run about $30 for 45 minutes.


So if you don't live near a SoulCycle studio, or can't always part with $30 for a class, here are a few ways you can get the same benefits for free. FYI: You should always consult a physician before starting an exercise program. (Trust us—most Someecards staffers rarely go to the doctor).
