There’s a SoulCycle-licensed tank top you can buy that describes the phenomenon thusly: “Pack, tribe, crew, posse, cult, gang, community, SoulCycle.” I was told, specifically, that it would be a cult, and I’m glad that the company is itself embracing that term, because there is something at least a little bit cult-like about sweating your… READ MORE »

A few weeks ago, I got my hands on a copy of a stretch workout DVD called Lastics (yeah, I still use DVDs, I’m a rube). I’m not super-inflexible – I’ve done my fair share of yoga, I can touch the floor with straight legs, and I’ve always wanted to be more human-pretzel-y. But oh… READ MORE »

I have pretty severe ADHD. That dictates a lot of the way that my life, brain, body, and relationships function, but it’s not something I talk about a lot because – well, I don’t know, I’ve known about it and been living with it for fifteen years. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
