Imagine a beautiful rooftop in NYC overlooking the stunning water and the picturesque skyscrapers–now imagine combining that with an amazing, powerful workout.
This is exactly what happened last week when I attended a special spin class held by CrankNYC! The event was held at the very posh Arlo Hotel SoHo.
I managed to get to the 8am spin class on time which was a miracle considering that the morning commute was pretty brutal. (I don’t miss that AT ALL)
When I arrived I was greeted by a CrankNYC swag bag with my name on it filled with my spin shoes for the day, a CrankNYC shirt and so much more. I quickly put on my shoes as the class would be starting shortly but to be honest all I wanted to do was take pictures because the views were just breathtaking.

The energy was so good right off the bat! The music was amazing, I knew pretty much every song and the ones I didn’t know I wish I did. We warmed up pretty quickly with some 30 second sprints. The class was full of fun choreography and moves I’ve never done on a spin bike before. We even used a hand towel as weights–what?! Crazy! Somehow it totally worked–my arms were burning afterwards!!
Class ended beautifully with reflection and pause to appreciate what we did for ourselves in that moment. The class was so dope and I can’t wait to go back. The family vibe was a good one and I love that they make that a core part of their brand.

Afterwards we were treated to yummy granola and amazing almond butter from Julie’s Real. Gluten Free and Paleo, all of it was so delish. I love a good granola, and this one was SO good! I might have taken a bag (or three) home!
