SoulCycle will open its new space in Pasadena Friday. The bike studio features a 51-bike studio, a retail boutique, showers, and a courtyard to relax in before or after class.

“SoulCycle is a motivating, joyful, full-body indoor cycling dance party on a bike,” the store announced today.

According to the store’s announcement, “SoulCycle was founded on the belief that fitness could be inspiring. With a motivational workout, a beautiful environment and outstanding customer service, each 45-minute class is a transformative experience.”

SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice met in New York City and were soon determined to find an alternative to fitness routines that felt like work. Combining inspirational coaching with high-energy music, the pair designed a workout that benefits the mind and body. SoulCycle trains world-class instructors to teach the SoulCycle method which aims to engage and empower riders in a way that leaves them mentally and physically stronger than when they arrived.

SoulCycle has opened 25 locations nationwide, with plans to open 50-60 studios worldwide by 2015. The bike studio hosts approximately 20,000 people riding every week.

In 2007, SoulCycle launched a robust retail line, and today a new retail collection is released every month. The company unveiled their very own SoulCycle Bike, an indoor cycle designed specifically for the SoulCycle ride, in 2012.

Soul Cycle is at 140 S. Lake Avenue. (626) 408-3000. www.soul-cycle.com.
