| W H O A 💥 So many feelings, kind of speechless to be honest.. Today a few of my colleagues and I were promoted to Master Instructors. A huge congratulations to Gina, Angela and David, well deserved! I didn’t actually know how much that meant to me until they dance bombed the room! In they came, screaming, jumping, cheering, wearing LED glasses, hats, rings, waving giant balloons that read MASTER; projecting a wall of of loving energy that was so powerful they could split the seas! When I finally realized what was happening I fell to my knees and duh, started crying. The last 5 1/2 years working at SoulCycle have been some of the best years of my life. I’m grateful for the opportunity and I’m grateful that I am seen and appreciated and celebrated for all of my hard work and effort. Opening up the first West Coast studio was a big job, a huge leap of faith, and an honor. 💛✨💛 In my Beverly Hills class today, they brought a candle and had me make a wish, I know you’re not supposed to share your wishes but this one I think is important to acknowledge. Being a fitness instructor is an extremely difficult job especially at SoulCycle. We are spiritual beings having a human experience, and with that comes a lot of egocentric thoughts and feelings that are sometimes hard to manage. Being that we design and curate our own playlists and choreography all while trying to convey an authentic message, puts us in a vulnerable space of hoping that the product we deliver lands well and is received by many. Never mind it being an extremely physical job, it is also a rollercoaster of emotions, the good the bad and the ugly- but mostly the good! 😉 To make a long story unless, today I really feel seen and appreciated and like my hard work has been acknowledged. And my wish was that every instructor feels or eventually feels these feelings of being seen, appreciated and supported. So a mad shout out to all the instructors across the country who are giving their all, we couldn’t do this without each other and #togetherwegetstronger! May we all get our time to shine!
