New England + Favorite Spin Class In Boston

Okay I have a lot of content for New England coming up, I’ve actually started venture out more and try new things since I can find my way through the city without Google maps most days. Here is my favorite spin class in Boston!

Recycle Studio

A couple of weeks ago I joined a group of bloggers for a spin class at Recycle Studio. It’s a local spin studio that’s been around for almost seven years, and I was able to try out the Newbury Street location!

Let me tell you that I’ve been trying to work out almost everyday. I do BBG, and have been on the indoor cycle for about 30-45 minutes three-four days a week. I need to step up my workouts, so I was really excited when I was invited to try Recycle studio! I had tried spinning at my college and local YMCA but didn’t love it. That has COMPLETELY changed.

It’s the most welcoming studio when you go in! You get complimentary shoes (which is awesome!), and a towel (way fancier than any class I’ve been to) then head inside the room.

(Some studios that are national make me really nervous because I don’t think that I’ll know anything and look like an idiot)

The room is dark, and for a newbie like me they came around to make sure I was well-situated on my bike. It was super helpful and I felt much more comfortable

So I have to say as someone who dislikes working out in front of other people because I’m self-conscious. The studio is dark for the entire ride, which made me feel way better about looking like I was on the brink of death (most likely, it was dark so we’ll never know).

John was AMAZING. I didn’t even realize that we were close to being done until he said it because it felt like he just started. The music was amazing, and very empowering. That sounds a little weird, but when you feel like you’re going to die, hearing that women rock makes you not want to let down your gender.

This is a full body workout, and I can attest to this because my entire body hurt the next two days. Towards the end of class he had us do these weight lifting exercises which looked totally easy. The weights were two pounds so how hard right? Wrong. You never drop your arms for like five minutes, all while continuing to cycle.

At the end we enjoyed some delicious Champy and food from Pressed, and got to talk more about Recycle and their classes. We got another free class, which I’m going to take this weekend.

Why Recycle?

Even if your out of town, I think there’s something special about going to a local class when traveling. You can your fellow classmates the best places to grab a drink at night, and ask your instructor where they go for an after class meal. Also if you like supporting small businesses at home, why not do it in the community your visiting?

My personal favorite part of traveling is experiencing life like a local after seeing some history. Working out with people who live in the area is the perfect way to do that!

In the end, I couldn’t recommend Recycle Studios enough! If you’re in the South End or on Newbury Street, check it out and book a class here! The classes are $26, and they come with complimentary shoes and a towel.

Have you been to a spin class? Ever gone to a local studio when you’re traveling?
