ClassPass Review: Flywheel

FLYWHEEL SPORTS INTERIORS

I’ve found a new favorite Seattle workout, and it's called Flywheel... Flywheel reminds me a lot of SoulCycle, which was my favorite fitness class when I lived in New York City.

When it comes to working out, we all have the best intentions, don't we? I personally could recite with my eyes closed the hottest fitness trends, precise number of reps needed to grow my guns, and the monthly membership fee of just about every gym within a 5-mile radius.
