SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice are leading a fitness and empowerment revolution.

    Elizabeth and Julie met on “the best blind date ever” and immediately clicked on their shared vision: to create an alternative to the fitness routines that felt like work. They turned their vision into a reality in 2006 in the rear lobby of an Upper West Side dance studio that Elizabeth found on Craigslist.

    Together, they developed an inspiring workout that’s as efficient as it is joyful — an experience that’s the best part of their riders’ day. Anyone can be an athlete, a rockstar, a warrior… SoulCycle’s riders come from all backgrounds, levels of fitness and experience. SoulCycle is for everyone.

    Currently, SoulCycle has more than 2,000 employees across the United States and 62 locations nationwide. Riders of all ages have responded to the SoulCycle cardio party with over 110,000 people riding at SoulCycle every week.

    Elizabeth and Julie were honored as Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, as two of Adweek’s Brand Geniuses and as Goldman Sachs’ 100 Builders + Innovators. They have been featured on multiple media outlets including: CNN, MSNBC, FOX, Fortune, Elle, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Elizabeth is a coveted speaker making recent appearances at INC, Google, Facebook, SXSW and the Summit Series.
